Fabric is fabulous and something I collect, love and even use. Thread is right up there. Luscious colors, weights and uses. I’ve waxed on about how much of them I have and where I put it all. But I’ve been perhaps less than transparent about another desire I satiate at quilt stores. It’s time to come clean and state true confessions of a sewing gadget junkie.
I have a thing for gadgets and it’s a bit harder to justify. Oh sure, I boast, I will use up all this fabric and I’ll need this thread to do it with. Theoretically, this could be true. (Come on, I said theoretically.)
Um..I like them? Yep, that’s why I have multiple rotary cutters and if you have the cutters, you have to have the blades. Am I right?
No, I only cut with one arm. What a silly question. Oh, I get it.
I have perhaps reached the tipping point. I have a circular attachment for my machine that I have never used. I am so unsure on what feet I have that I have an app on my phone which lists them.
The snowflake spatula? I read that if you rip a bunch of stitches, these kinds of spatulas will gather up all those loose threads quick as can be. No, it didn’t work but I do like the color of the spatula.
Can we say hard core or does junkie cover it?
I have little scissors hanging on my sewing machine which came with a thread cutter hanging on the opposite side. And yes, my machine has its own thread cutter. I have never used either but they look cute don’t you think?
I have snips, shears and scissors waiting to be used. One can hang around my neck. Why did I think I needed one on my machine?
Again, I do like the color, don’t you? And fine, yes, I may have crossed over the line so what the heck, I’ll confess the rest.
Here’s the thing. I also have a Longarm and the entire table under it is full of Longarm gadgets. I have even used a few!
Yes, I can wind bobbins on the Longarm, why do you inquire?
And hey, the kleenex is very useful.
It’s fabulous to pile things on.In fact, to get this picture, I had to move most of them.
I’ve been using this sweetie for 47 years. And people say I am a gadget junkie. Maybe I am but I know a good gadget when I see one.
And no, I won’t lend it to you.
Gadgets make me Sew happy!
