Yesterday, while we were identifying all those machine bones, my mind wandered to
There was nothing for it. I took the icy plunge and forked out more pounds sterling for yet another rotary cutter – I’ve posted before about how pants I am at cutting.
Turns out it was my bloomin chocolate teapot of a rotary cutter to blame, not my inability to learn a new skill, after all.
Once I had my new sultry little vixen Olfa to compare it to, I realised that the blade and screw/washer combo simply didn’t match up. It was a dud.
This explains precisely why the blade never cut anything properly, no matter what I shoved at it, other than my longest fingernail (and even then I had to finish it off with nail clippers).
All that angst I could have been chanelling elsewhere!
Now I glide across my fabric like a champion figure skater and am learning not to be so bitter that (despite what feels like a million entries) I have not yet won an Accuquilt Go!
Yay! Things are looking up! That’s two things on my Novumber list already showing a sliver of improvement.
… anyway, enough of all that !
