Lost - a 6x24 quilt ruler

Lost: Quilt ruler Posted by Hello

It does appear to be a trivial item but I am seriously depressed that I lost my quilt ruler. I had cajoled my dear beloved to drive 4 hrs all the way to a craft store in Khobar to buy it. I nearly cried because we had a hard time trying to look for the shop. And my beloved had a huge headache there, and we had to endure a 4 hour drive home in the dark, all because I wanted to buy this ruler.

And now I have apparently lost it. I think I accidentally left it in the sewing class yesterday, when I wanted to do my homework earlier today, I realised my ruler is missing. Arggghhhhh.

And to get a replacement, its an 8 hours drive return!

I wish it was much easier than this! Anyone who found it, please please please return it to the owner.

hey i pun suka quilting gak but no time at all to try it. tak leh order online je ke may be from joanne.com?

Waaaa Atenah, hang ni multi talented la. Tu la I was surfing at Joanne.com but the shipping cost is pretty high and I takut when bende tu sampai nanti pecah :(

i envy you for having the time of your life to enjoy things like quilting and such. i bought a bead set last year and until today remain unopened.

As a person who doesn't even sew her own loose buttons...what's the difference between a quilt ruler and uh, I dunno, a normal one?

I know how frustrating it is to lose something! It's always happening to me though *sighs* - maybe you should call your tailor class?

Sunflora said...

Atiza dear, the grass is always greener on the other side. There are some ladies here who go crazy because they simply cannot find things to do. But yes Alhamdullilah I have the time but I bet you too have the satisfaction of having a career and/or spending quality time with your kids.

Leen ahhhh its special because its a bit gemuk and its got special lines hahahaha. I suppose one CAN use a normal long ruler but that wouldn't be much fun!

Huwaa I called everyone in the class including the teacher but no sign of the ruler. Takde rezeki apa nak buat :(

i'm just waiting for the time when leen loses the only pair of footwear she has.

atenah said...

no lah, SF, sini kalau shipping stuff mmg depa taruk that bubble thingy la and etc to make sure stuff wont pecah

Sunflora said...

Nurelsa, no such luck for me. I dah pasrah.

Bunn hehehehe make sure you tell me when the time comes.

Atenah, Joann don't ship overseas :( I emailed them to ask. Have you heard of Charles? I tried to search for their website online but no luch.
