TUSAL, Bluebird WIP & the tale of two Cutters......

Nearly forgot to show off this month's TUSAL - Here it is, you can see the itty bitty bit of halloween fabric sitting near the top - there doesnt' appear to be more than normal in there, I don't feel that I have stitched so much at all this month.
I'm also showing off my current WIP (well one of them in any case..) Bluebird Sampler by Bent Creek. Perhaps I'm feeling obligated to stitch it which is why I'm not feeling so enthused to finish it - but once this is done I'll need to find the fabric to stitch the brown and blackbird samplers that match it.
The rotary cutters??
I had made the frantic search for RC 1 or 2 during the month - could not locate either of them anywhere. I eventually bought a smaller, cheaper one - red RC 3, knowing that if I was ever to open it, I would magically be transported to where I had carefully stashed either RC 1 or RC2.

Yep. I made myself some summer bloomers yesterday and having broken my good dressmaking scissors, opened the RC 3 packet to cut the fabric out. I quickly stitched up the bloomers (great for summer when you've got thunder thighs!). I found my old stash of elastic for the waist band and went looking for a safety pin to thread the elastic through the waistband........... lo and behold - THERE is RC 1 !!!!! In a box of bits that I know that I looked through during my search for them...... grrrrr.
Murphy's law strikes again!!!!
If I'm looking for them again - please remind me that I've put them in the blue sewing box on wheels - will you????

I've done just that sort of thing more times than I can remember. I'll be of no use helping you remember but perhaps you will remember you wrote it in your blog!
