Size Matters

Good morning bloggy reading people! It's the Amy-Monica-Pam day on the famous Pat Sloan ruler hopping tour... so are you AMP'd up? Be sure and leave a comment on everyone's blog on their special blog hop day so that you can be entered to win that big pile of rulers!


Quilting in the Garden at Alden Lane

The theme for the hop is not only these great Edge rulers, but also our first time.. quilting that is. I have written about my first quilt before, and you can catch up on that story here. I even scanned in a picture of the very first quilt I made.


Livermore Valley Winery Map
I think for so many people, rulers, mats and rotary cutters really revolutionized quilting. I had always had quilt envy.. the pages of Country Home and Country Living were strewn with quilts and there was no way I could acquire vintage quilts, you know back in the dark days before ebay.

Of course after seeing that you could make a quilt without using templates, well I was all over that. No looking back.
Livermore totem pole

Accurate measuring has always always been a challenge for me. Of course over the years I've learned how to properly use my rulers as the guide, not my mat.

Livermore High Cowboys Mascot

Of course having a sharp rotary blade makes all the difference in the world. And that brings us right back to these Sullivan's Edge Rulers.


We have verdant fields of marshmallows too, not just Monica.

I'd like to pass along 'my' great recipe for fudge. I think everyone has this recipe by now, but it really is the best fudge around.

Fantasy Fudge

2 c. sugar
3/4 c. butter
2/3 c. (5 1/3 oz.) can evaporated milk
1 (12 oz.) pkg. semi-sweet chocolate pieces
1 (7 oz.) jar Kraft marshmallow creme
1 c. chopped nuts
1 tsp. vanilla
Combine sugar, butter and milk in saucepan. Bring to full rolling boil, stirring constantly. Continue boiling for 5 minutes over medium heat, stirring constantly. Remove from heat, stir in chocolate pieces until melted. Add marshmallow creme, nuts and vanilla. Beat until well blended. Pour into greased 13 x 9 inch pan. Cool at room temperature. Cut into squares.


Remember to leave your comment on all the blogs on their special day. And today, be sure and see what Monica and Amy have cooked up for you. Here's a little instructional video on the proper use of rulers.

So cute all the things that you measured. If I win the rulers I think it would be neat to measure some of the painted horse statues that are scattered around my town of Ocala,Fl. Thanks for a chance to win.

I really appreciated the instructional video on the proper use of the ruler. Who knew I was doing it wrong all these years?!??!

Marshmallow Story - On the way to Vermont, my quilting friend and I were on the lookout for sights of interest. As we passed a cow farm, with hay bales all rolled up in white platic, I said, "Look Carrie - a Marshmallow Field!" She whipped her head around so fast and said, "Where?" I almost went off the road because I was laughing so hard.

What a cutie-pie you are for using that ruler next to all of the pictures. Stupid me went by a couple of them before I realized what you were doing. Can't wait to check these rulers out in person. And nope, had not seen your fudge recipe before, but will be trying it out soon. Chocolate here I come! dmj53(at)hotmail(dot)com

Marshmallows everywhere ... what does it mean? (sorry, my son got me hooked on a very funny YouTube with a very stoned fellow who sees a double rainbow). I'm still giggling. I thought the giant artichoke was funny, but that video is the kicker!
Now that I know the proper way to use those rulers, I'm "AMP'ed" to get them ... and some marshmallows!

I'm so glad your recipe uses up all these marshmellows people are growing. Your post yesterday made me think that maybe they (whoever they may be) could come up with a sewing machine/coffee maker. It grinds your beans when you wind your bobbins. The amount of thread on your bobbin is directly proportional to the amount of coffee left in the maker. And when you finish a quilt, it despenses chocolate, or M&M's.Your choice. The M&M's model is a bit more. Thank you for participating in this fun tour!

Your blog entry reads like those old fashioned commercials that advertised products within the context of the show! (Can Lucy say 'veta-vita-veggie-mite'?)

Oh Fudge, one of my absolute favorites. Hopefully I will not eat all of the Fluff before adding it to the fudge though . . .
