Tools & Fuel

I finally invested in a new tool...



amazing how the right tool makes a job easier...



easier....but not faster....



I apparently traced a heckuva lotta baskets! I don't care that it's 11:21PM on a Saturday night...



I need some fuel....may be pulling a really late nighter......thank goodness for Starbucks in the coffee pot! Never underestimate the power of new tools and fuel!

*Peace!

Yes its an investment buying good scissors but much better on your wrists too, thats a good thing long term!
Its like when I put in a new rotary blade ah the ease of cutting again, heaven!

Nice scissors! My Ginghers are so old they squeak! lol! But they still work like a charm, which is what's important. Good luck with the baskets. They look awfully pretty! Hope the fuel keeps you going!

Have you tried the gingher rotary cutter? I'm trying to find someone who uses it before I jump in and invest...it's a bit pricier than the olfas...

Aren't Ginghers just the best for cutting. Nothing better. I have to hide mine in a drawer so the other inhabitants in the house don't take off with them.

And girl, Starbucks at 11:21 at night? Lordy, I'd be zinging into the next day for sure.

Good scissors are a must - especially with the amount of cutting and sewing you do! I have a pair of gingher spring action dress shears and I love them!
