My Life

New blade, new attitude!

I don’t know why a blade has to cut like this before I notice,

but I changed my rotary cutter’s blade over the weekend and just started using it today.

I feel like a new woman!

Can you relate or is it just me?  I have to totally use something up to feel justified in replacing it, or just have to be hit over the head to notice that it needs replacing…

Have you seen the movie Julie & Julia?

I’m reminded of the part when Julia (Merle Streep) is in the all-male cooking class in France and goes home to practice cutting onions after the first day of class.  She ends up cutting PILES of onions!

I’m ready to cut piles of binding strips!

Good thing too, because I just got two more quilts back from my quilter today.  On top of the two I got back Friday, that makes four.

I will be ready to watch Merle soon.  For those of you that don’t know it, my M.O. is to watch a movie(s) when I get the binding on a quilt and do the hand stitching.

Can’t wait!

Stay tuned. Hopefully soon I will have piles of quilts to share with you.

Until next time,

  1. I had the exact same experience this week and wondered why I had waited so long! The fabric cuts like butter, as they say:)
