A friend dropped round on Saturday morning and deposited everything you see in this photo (except the cutting mat) in my sewing room. They were her mothers and my friend is not a quilter. I once thought I wasn't either
, so I've promised to return them if she ever hears the siren song of patchwork calling....
The cutting blade/ruler combo is really great. My Mum has one, and it can save your wrists, it just takes a little practice to line it up.
