Wonderful Wednesday - Rotary Cutter Edition

Welcome to another edition of Wonderful Wednesday!!  As you might recall, I moved to a new house just over a month ago.  There are studio boxes everywhere!  I've been trying to open and empty a few each week.

There are certain things which have been located.  My ORANGE scrap basket for this month's Rainbow Scrap Challenge is among those items:

You may have read that I found some HSTs to play with, as well:

What I hadn't been able to locate is the box that holds my favorite rotary cutter.  I've been looking for it for the past several weeks and was getting really frustrated!  I needed to trim some squares before I could sew the block I had laid out for the September 2021 TABLE SCRAPS Challenge coming up this weekend:

While rummaging through another box yesterday...

... One that Needleb be suggested might house the missing implement, I spotted the bag shown above.  As soon as I looked at it, I realized that my travel bag ALWAYS has its own rotary cutter, so I checked inside and sure enough there it was:

I could have been sewing for WEEKS now!  However, I'm choosing to celebrate the fact that a good bit (more) of the house is unpacked because this cutter was hiding from me and now I can sew with less guilt since I'm way more unpacked than if it had been revealed any sooner.  :o))

Until next time...
Join me in a happy dance!!!


  1. I'm happy dancing with you! Hooray for the find together with the orange scraps!

  2. Yay! Every time I use my rotary cutter I wonder how in the world Granny made quilts with just a pair of scissors. It's a puzzle to me - lol! I LOVE your fussy cutting on that block. Enjoy your dancing week!

  3. Slow and steady wins the race. That's my favorite cutter, too!

  4. Hurray for unearthing one of the rotary cutters. Now the trick will be to keep unpacking without getting too distracted by sewing.

  5. Happy dance here too. Don't you love when events force you to do what you least want to do? I ended up cleaning the entire upstairs bathroom yesterday just because it was raining and I had planned to sew outside during my vacation. I let my frustration out with a rag and a bucket of soapy water. Haha! Enjoy the sewing sessions. ;^)

  6. So glad to know you finally found it, Joy! Sounds like it worked out just right so you weren't distracted by sewing studio squirrels!

  7. Everything works out for a reason. Glad you finally found it though!

  8. Yay! Glad you finally found it. Celebrating your progress with unpacking too!

  9. Congrats on finding it!!! It always feels good to settle in and unpack! Have a safe and happy day!

  10. Whenever we've moved, I have such a need to feel settled that I don't do anything else until all the boxes are gone. Always, unpacking begins with the kitchen. Once that's done, I tackle the rest of the house, saving the best - my sewing room - for last. It's a one or two day project until it's finished. Though since moving nine years ago, I've added storage pieces and places to the space, so it keeps getting better and better. I love my room! Hope you see a finish soon so you can move on with life and lots more making.
