Did you know that it can be fun to have your own fabric shop?! Sometimes it is stressful too, but… it at least it gives you an excuse to buy new toys! Yesterday I spent all day playing with a new toy I got just before Christmas:
Yep, a Studio Cutter 🙂 And I love it! It cuts fabric like butter!!! The dies are sturdy, the mats are too, and it makes for such easy cutting. Also I can cut lots more to make kits for the shop:
It did take longer than I expected to make up 8 kits of 100 tumblers each… I now have a new appreciation for Moda and their precuts…!
I did a demonstration for my customers this morning on how to put together a quick tumbler quilt. Last night I tested it and put together the 100 blocks in about an hour and a half. Not bad really for a quilt top. Sorry, forgot to take a pic in the daylight, will try to remember tomorrow.
The night before, I finished the third thread catcher and I am happily on schedule (for a change):
I have also been working on my list of UFO’s, WIPs & WISPs…. sigh…. go check it out here! If there was a competition, I’d bet I would win 🙂
All the UFO’s fit in two tubs that fit under the school table:
Now I know I will never get ALL of them done in the next year, but I think I will aim to only have one tub by the end of the year. Do you think that is possible?! It’s a goal at least 🙂
Better go and make a start…..!
