As some of you know, my retired librarian hubby is also a quilter. Yup. He's a card-carrying member of the Lincoln Quilter's Guild. So he doesn't complain when we visit our local quilt shops (much). In fact, the proprietors all know him on a first name basis.
But his love of fabric had somehow not translated into a love of helping out with my Etsy shop, Pasque Flower Creations. Now, don't get me wrong, he's a great cheerleader. He never ceases to be amazed at the number of international orders we get. And he doesn't complain about the large cutting mat taking up half the kitchen table pretty much every day.
And I never could have launched my little shop if he had not taught me the basics of uploading and editing photos. I still rely on him to change toner in the printer, and call our trusty computer repair guy when necessary. I've kidded that he's my IT Department.
But this week something changed. Without any prompting (or nagging), he foraged through the basement, which houses stash overflow fabrics, and began cutting 2" squares (1.5 inches finished)!
We had purchased this Accuquilt GO! Baby fabric cutter at The Quilted Kitty over a year ago, and it quickly became his new toy. But it hadn't seen much action lately --- until this week!
Just look at him GO! What an impressive pile of red, white and blue squares! These will be perfect for doll quilts or patchwork zip pouches, or for hexie projects, or ..... the possibilities are endless!
He can cut six perfectly-sized 2-inch squares with this die! Such a deal!
So I've promoted him --- to Vice President for Scrap Management!
