Himself: Was still working at the early dinner time when he went out on another late call then worked till bedtime. No one has answered his two important questions yet: What is his territory, and why is the upload so slow when no one else’s uploads are slow.
Herself: …and the quilt blog too: Swam, worked on poem, fixed lunches , read blogs, cooked, read. A simple day.
My Babylonian Captivity: Do stop in and read Tugster's experience as a human shield. He writes that, “ i was captured in kuwait (where i was teaching in the kuwaiti air force)….”
Gratitude: Simplicity. Lessa. Lenora brought over a violet too.
The modern quilter, which I am not, uses many tools to help them cut and sew straight lines and quarter inch wide seams. Until very recently, I did all my cutting on the blue mat using the Olfa rotary cutter and that big, wide ruler. I confess to being challenged when it comes to cutting straight edges. Now I still cut long strips, the width I want the finished pieces, but it is much easier to run them through the small cutter to make more accurate small pieces.
Put the fabric in and line it up straight. Lower the bar which lightly locks in place. Run the rotary blade, which lives inside it’s little orange cover over the fabric. “Zap.” You’ve cut a piece and move on to the next “Zap.” Zowie!
