Who Knew?

Last year I wrote a post on my favorite new rotary cutter. I did get lots of feedback on it from people popping into the shop wanting to know why I loved it so much more then the old one, besides the color and quick change blade feature, I love it because of the way it feels in my hand, and yes I really do still love it.
I never gave thought to when the rotary cutter was invented or why all the OLFA cutting tools had yellow handles until Debbie from Quilting Possibilities shared a link on her shops Facebook page. I love learning about unique, quirky little details so I was happy when I clicked over to find some fun facts about OLFA and the tool that really changed quilting.
Invented in 1979, the same year I graduated from high school, I'm pretty sure at the time that Yoshio Okada had no idea that he would shake up the quilting world. And the yellow handle that we all have come to  associate the OLFA cutter with, it was pretty easy, he wanted his tools to be easily seen in toolbox…

Happy Earth Day

Today is Earth Day and Spring has finally arrived... I can't wait to get back into the garden and for the arrival of my favorite flowers but for now this picture will have to do!

My lime green coneflowers are just waiting to pop up  and I can't wait...

I'm a nut...

I'm a nut for notebooks... notepads.. anything having to do with paper... Bring me paper and pencil 

What started off as a simple blog post about my love of notebooks ended up with me spending lots and lots and yes LOTS of time on Pinterest...I now have a new board, Notebook Love and then I came across this blog tutorial on how to make a notebook cover...
so many covers to make...and so little time..

So..how about you...do you like to put pencil to paper? Any future notebook covers for you?

Until Next Time
