The dies for the Go cutter arrived last Monday, but I had such a busy week that I couldn't even unpack them. It made me work all the harder, knowing that when I finished my projects I would be able to play with my new toys. So I hurried to fill a really big pattern order, and slaved away at a custom quilt, and by Friday afternoon I could afford some time off to unpack the box, cut up some fabric and put the cutter through it's paces.
This is the die that I really wanted.
The other die that I was waiting for was this one;
either cutting the squares with a rotary cutter, or with the die that came with the Go.
Even Mereth is happily cutting pieces with the cutter and planning how she can use them. It's not as accurate as she likes, so she will only use the units for things where that doesn't matter so much. I'm not such a stickler for accuracy, I just fudge and fiddle, so I don't really mind if the odd piece is a smidgeon too small. I make inaccurate cuts with the rotary cutter too, so it's all par for the course.
I have triangles everywhere, and none of them required any thought or effort to cut. I'm really enjoying myself with my new toy.
The tree guys were having fun with their toys too, including a chainsaw on a 12' pole.
