I finally remembered to get some shirring elastic in (some for the shop and some for Monday's project). Monday's project has now joined the long list of "future blog posts"....
Those of you who have my book may have read that I use shirring elastic to speed up the effect of gathering stitches (often in conjunction with my gathering foot). I'm impatient like that (and it works a treat). Anyway, I thought that you might like some too!
The other thing that I like so much that I've added it to the shop is the point cutter - absolutely fabulous for quickly snipping notches and cutting into corners that the rotary blade won't reach. This Olfa brand point cutter comes with three spare double-ended blades (cleverly hidden in the handle).
In other news, I was heartened to see that what goes around does indeed come around..... This week it was payback time for the sewing machine and it's battery-charger-fitting fitting. (Ahem.... anyone seen where I left my battery charger cord...?).
