So..... I finally decided to jump in and finish the 5 Autograph Star blocks for that swap I'm trying to get completed and my Rotary Cutter would NOT stay open. Anytime I tried to put pressure down on it to cut the lock would release and it would close up on me. UGH! I pulled out my ad from Jo-Ann Fabrics and discovered that the rotary cutters were on sale at 40% off AND I had also received a coupon from them in my email for 20% off your total INCLUDING sale items so Scott and I went by there after we stopped at the Post Office so he could mail a package to Brazil. I got a new rotary cutter and 2 replacement blades for $16.41. AND they have titanium blades so they should stay sharper longer.
I came home and cut the remaining segments that I needed and have most of the first seems sewn... just one more blocks worth before I can start forming them into the blocks. YEAH! I had hopped to have these done and gone before this past Friday but just couldn't find my sewing MoJo.
Now for something probably most of you would never see on your kitchen tables but I had to share...
TOLD YA! You can tell we have a son in the Navy can't you... wine and a gas mask!
