Last week, I replaced the blades in my rotary cutters with brand new ones. I resharpen and resharpen, but I can't find the little blue sharpener and it's been a long time since I bought brand new blades, because those just aren't a fun thing to spend the quilting budget on.
Cutting is suddenly much, much easier. Now I'm trying to avoid Joanns because I need a bit of solid yardage and some fusible interfacing for a project I've been planning for years. Why couldn't I have decided that I needed those last week?
Or that I needed pieces for a new tote bag?
I have lots and lots of random bits of stuff in my sewing room, but I'm pretty sure I don't have any swivel hooks or D rings. That's a shame, because I'd really love to make this Foldover Tote. It looks like it would be perfect for running errands. Maybe I could do as much as possible without the rings and finish it after my next trip to town? (This kind of reminds me of my hunt for lucite rings so I could make a dumpling bag. I never did find those rings, but I did make three or four of the bags...maybe I've got something around here I can steal swivel hooks from...)
I don't have time for another trip to the store. And, even if I did, the odds are that if I ran out and bought supplies right now, something else would catch my eye before I started either of the projects.
It's slightly more likely that I've got the right colors of felt to make an embroidered felt squirrel jigsaw puzzle.
And I absolutely must, must, must make myself a typewriter quilt when Heidi from Fabric Mutt posts the tutorial. Not sure what fabric I'll use, but something in the sewing room is bound to work.
