One of the things that really urks me is my rotary cutter. The blade seems to be plenty sharp, but for some reason, no matter how hard I press down, the silly thing will not cut well. Even if I go over the fabric two or three times, I still wind up cutting parts with my scissors that just didn't get cut through all the way. URGH!! So my lovely mother- you should meet this lady, she is a saint!, I want to be like her when I grow up- gave me a NEW GINGHER rotary cutter for Mother's Day! Oh my heaven-ness :)! I adore my gingher scissors and have been debating about a new rotary cutter, but they just cost so much I have been holding off. So this was the best present that I could have gotten!
I got my first chance to use it yesterday and I just stood there in amazement after taking that first cut. I was speechless! I was giddy! I was just dumbfounded that for over a year I have been using my terrible, cheap, frustrating, time consuming cutter, and that after one single cut, I knew I was a new woman :) hehe! Not even one single thread needed a cut and it looked perfect. It seriously felt like a knife going through room temperature butter! Seriously, something so simple could have fixed all my stress and mutterings under my breath for the past how long?? ;) I really just stood there a moment, letting it soak in, and then just sighed and smiled a wonderful smile. I walked over, picked up my old cutter, and it found a lovely new home in the circular file :)! Such a delicious moment! I am never going back- yay for Gingher! And more yay for my mama!! I luv ya!! And now I love cutting fabric too ;)
