Wee Bee cutting it up!

Three things to be happy about:
(1) the history of your house
(2) a lucky guess
(3) the sound of tap-dancing shoes

At yesterday's monthly Wee Bee meeting the overriding theme was "gadgets," where several members showed and/or told about useful gadgets they found or were using.  Among the gadgets shown, Yetunde (Sistah Stitch-a-Lot) demonstrated a gel marking pen that is permanent until you apply the iron; Pat showed us her collection of objects that she uses as stilettos when sewing.

In keeping with the gadgets theme, Linda (Sew-N-Crazy Quilter) and I took our Accuquilt GO cutters to the meeting so members could cut fabrics.  I must say there was a big variety of dies available - two heart shapes, squares, strips, triangles, circles, you name it ... something for everybody!  Linda even brought in a variety of shapes she had cut from scraps, to show what's possible with the various dies.  After a short tutorial on how to use the cutter and dies, how best to align the fabrics, and where not to grab ahold of the dies, several people got to cutting!

And another great Bee meeting goes down in history!  Sew forth and sew on til later...
