Lolah's toys & library additions

A few new toys arrived last week. One is a 16" square which folds up for easy storing. This should be very nice design with and for checking corners for square but NOT it's not intended for longarm ruler work. The other is a 4X12" ruler for longarming. It's nice to have a few rulers of different lengths. This one will be very handy for ditch work around blocks.

Longarming rulers are thicker than regular rulers... for Lolah, these have to be 1/4" thick or thicker. Some require 3/8" but I don't have any of those.... yet!

I was also on the receiving end of this order placed on August 31st during C&T Publishing sale. Two of my choices were on back order hence the delay in shipping. There were great deals to be had as a lot of these books were selling for $3, $5 and $10. Can't beat that!

I will be taking 2 (of 9) classes at Road to California in January from Gina Perkes and thought I'd brush up on her work and get some inspiration.

I'll also be taking a big leap into unknown territory with a class in painting on fabrics! Love Mickey Lawler's projects in this book!

I joined the Los Angeles Modern Quilt Guild recently and hope to get to one of their meetings soon! Alissa Height Carlton is a founding member.

Other titles interested me... 

 And of course one can never have too much inspiration! I consider these toys for Lolah too...

Love the smell of new books don't you? Reminds me of the first days of school!
