I generally sew on Jan, my Janome 6600P and yes she has a thread cutter, but I figure if I cut enough it will malfunction, and Jan will have to go to the hospital, so I save use of my cutter for applique and other things where I do not do chain piecing.
I had about an hour before a student, so I got my drawer of 1 1/2" strips out, a ruler and my cutter and proceeded to cut about 40 Spool blocks in my hour. It's like getting a free quilt since it uses scraps from other projects.
So another week is about to begin. Popcorn and Downton Abbey tonight and then another week of fun. Hope your week was enjoyable too....Don't forget to enjoy your journey.
