    Re: What Black Friday got me

    Thanks everyone
    I indeed feel very lucky to have him by my side. Just today I told him I saw an ad that a LQS in my city has 40% and 50% off on fabrics for the whole month of December and I wanted to go check it as soon as I get my pay and I almost couldn't finish my words he was already excited to go together to buy with such a good deal! (we never get such deals. I just hope the shop is not about to close).

    You see, I never bothered to convert because it seemed normal. We don't use cups and teaspoons for recipes for example, we measure everything by grams and kilos (I mean in Italy and most of Europe) so it seemed just normale routine
    But I'm glad I can use inches now

    it's a temporary fabric glue. I don't use pins to keep my zipper in place for sewing, for example, I apply some of this yellow glue that keeps my fabric and zipper together and then I simply sew! It fades and leaves no residue I LOVE IT and use it a lot

    Converting all those measurements agh what a chore that would be. Plus I am terrible at math so I am sure I would make lots of mistakes and my blocks would never turn out! Sometimes it's the little things that make us happy. Sounds you you got some great finds there, plus your husband is a real keeper. What a sweetie.

    A great gift from a great guy. I was in the Goodwill the other day and saw a ruler and picked it up...but...no inches on it. I looked and looked and realized that the ruler was made in Italy and those we CM . I put it back. But, see , your stuff migrates to the US.

    Great products! I admire those working in metrics being able to use "inch" patterns! My bonus when traveling to "metric" countries, a fat quarter is definitely bigger! I bought one prepackaged piece of fabric in France, thinking it was a yard of fabric, opened it up and it was the size of a bedspread! Huge! What a bargain!

    Congratulations on your new ruler, cutter and fabric. It's so nice to have the equipment you need. I hadn't thought about all the conversions you need to do every time you sew. I love the fabric, too. He has great taste!

    You are indeed a very lucky wife. My husband wouldn't do that for me.

    That is fabulous! It is wonderful when our husbands support our hobby!

    I had not thought about having to convert all of the quilting patterns to metric. Ugh! I am so sorry for your struggle with that. I am happy to hear that you have both, a ruler in inches and a new rotary cutter.

    Merry Christmas to you!

    What Black Friday got me

    Hello everyone!
    I want to share my joy with you for what was supposed to be my last purchase and ended up being a gift from my lovely husband <3

    I desperately needed some tools so I decided to order online during the Black Friday promotion to cut the cost a little and be able to have everything I do need. It was a hit I was so thrilled!

    The problem was that 3 months ago my rotary cutter broke, or let's just say it was still usable but in a very difficult way, so I kept using it but hating it every second. Now I have a perfect new one! YAY ME!

    And to make everything better I finally got myself an INCH RULER! You'll probably wonder why I'm so excited but I'm Italian, I live in Italy, we use the metric system, at the beginning of my quilting adventure ruler and mat in cm and rulers aren't exactly cheap so I simply converted EVERY SINGLE project I tackled. Lately with the Splendid Sampler I was driving nuts LOL

    and my hubby who loves landscape and seasonal fabrics chose these two cuts of fabric he has such great taste. I love him!
