|I ran to the store and bought a NEW one!|
Happy Saturday! What does it say about me that I had to clean my sewing room this morning in order to function in my sewing room. It was a mess. A messy quilter is a happy quilter right? Not true, I was not happy, I couldn't find anything and I hate cleaning. Well, let me tell you why I had to clean my sewing room, I was looking for my rotary cutter! REALLY looking, searching.... only to find out, I left it at mom's. I had kits to package and fabric to cut this week. How in heavens name did we ever function as a quilter without the rotary cutter? Really, how did we ever cut those pieces out? I know when I first started quilting there were noooo rotary tools. (This really dates me) I remember taking days to cut pieces out for my quilts and using a straight edge ruler and a pencil to mark my fabric. While trying to cut fabric for kits with scissors, I found that I cannot function well without my rotary cutter. What takes minutes to cut with a rotary cutter takes hours to cut with a scissors. So let's salute my favorite quilting tool, the Rotary Cutter!
Hail to this awesome tool!!
I hope that you have a wonderful weekend and find some time to quilt. Keep on working on those snowman strips for the Quilt Doodle BOM 2014. I love the results that have been posted so far in the flickr account. It's not too late to join! Remember the pattern is free this month and can be found on Craftsy.
Join me on Monday for the Handmaids 4 sewing room blog hop. I have an awesome project or two to show you! There's going to be tons of fun and inspiration.
