Feel like a child again.........

I'm so excited, yes I am going on hols Saturday to Spain but that's not the main reason, hopefully tomorrow I will be receiving this little beauty in the post.

Hours of fun cutting strips of fabric - I am guessing you must think I have lost the plot, but after cutting on a cutting mat and a ruler that is never long enough, if it is, I can never keep it straight, if you breath or God forbid you sneeze, and rotate the middle of the ruler 1mm you miss the straight line by inches! and then when you are having a bad day your hand held rotary cutter won't cut because the drawing table I use is too tall to get good pressure on.

And as you know I dabble in using quilting strips and handmade bias bindings so a machine like this means by Friday afternoon - I will not have any fabric left in the house over 2.5" wide........



  1. Can't wait to hear how you get on with this - I really struggle with the straight lines too!

    Have a great holiday :)

  2. Loving the look of that machine! Gotta love a good gadget!
    Hope it helps and you can resist the urge to cut everything to strips!

  3. Ooooh haven't seen one of those before!! Am realy interested to see how you get on with it. Am mentally making room in my craftroom for it as I type!!
