At times I think I spend more time with this (photo below)– than anything else! This is a Fons & Porter ergonomic seam ripper (found in their on line shop and quilting stores) – I’m about to find another, the seam ripper is easy to hold but it’s rounded shape drives me nuts – it rolls off of the sewing table and on to the floor so often I wonder why I keep it.
I felt like I spent way too much time ripping today so I quit earlier than I planned on. I was so careful planning out my rows of half square triangles for the borders. I got two borders sewed on and started to plan the colors for the top border when of course I noticed one border was wrong. I had to take the whole strip off in order to get the triangles into the right placement. I wanted to get all four of these strips done but lost patience – I fixed what needed to be fixed and will continue tomorrow or Sunday.
With two borders sewed on:
I went to the quilting group this morning – it was fun getting together, we had skipped Friday mornings over the 2 Fridays that landed in the holiday season and then I missed at least 2 Fridays because of the car accident. I forgot my camera and this was one Friday when I wish I had remembered it – there were so many nice quilts displayed – I will try to remember my camera next week and maybe some will bring the quilts back. Sometimes they are brought several weeks in a row as not everyone shows up every week.
Do you have a favorite seam ripper? If you have the same kind I do – do you like it?
