When my husband moved into management from web development he liked to joke that he had become "part of the problem". Well, today I have to admit that I, too, am part of a problem. The problem of quilters coveting Accuquilt Go! cutters. As you can see here, the eagle has landed and inspections are under way.
When I first heard of the cutter I immediately dismissed it as unnecessary, expensive gadgetry. And it may be. But after I spent a humbling afternoon ruining some fabric (and my good mood) with my rotary cutter I decided it might not be such a bad idea. I am also the child of a woman who stashes all the free hospital socks and pens that she can get her hands on. So I'm going to claim there was some genetic influence leading me to investigate the Accuquilt blogger program. Speaking of genetic influence, I thought I'd use the toddler for reference: that drunkard's path die is huge!
Accuquilt's plan to take over the quilting world one blog at a time is pure genius. I know this because after not winning about twenty Go! giveaways I stopped to ponder the cutter at Joann's, thinking to myself "well, maybe I could buy one...". That's how it happens! And now, here I am, with my very own Go! cutter. I'm going to cut and sew, photograph and write, and eventually even host a giveaway. And that, my friends, means I am definitely part of the problem.
