Wonky Tools

Daily Draw: Legend the Arthurian Tarot ~ 3 of Wands/Spears

Subtitled the Horse Fair, this card speaks of fine tuning our knowledge and valuable resources.

As a quilter I use rotary cutters and acrylic rulers to cut my fabric. I noticed while building out my block the 2.5" corners were not aligning perfectly with the 6.5" block they were being set into. On examination my 2.5" ruler has slumped shoulders.

As an experienced quilter I can adjust each block as I sew along, my work is not lost. But as a knowledgeable quilter I am only as good as my tools. Replacement ruler is in order.

"When a work lifts your spirits and inspires bold and noble thoughts in you, do not look for any other standard to judge by: the work is good." ~ Jean de la Bruyere 1645-1696
