Meet some of my friends- Part 2

Here are more of my friends down in my craft room-

My sewing machine, Originally it was my Aunt Carol's and passed onto my mom, where I just kinda took it over. I've come to find out the machine was made in the early 1970s, so its older than me yet still runs like a champ!

My rotary cutter- These guys have issues about running into my thumb. We haven't had any accidents recently but boy do they hurt when they hit the side of your thumb.

This is my Christmas gift- My Gingher Pinking shears. I <3 onblur="try {parent.deselectBloggerImageGracefully();} catch(e) {}" href="">

And last but not least the button box- I have great memories of this as a kid. Getting a chance to run my hands through it and it was so nice. Cayden is starting to enjoy this tradition as well.

These are just a few of my favorite friends.

Meet some of my friends- Part 1

Since I've been doing more crafting recently I thought I'd introduce my friends-

This is my trusty craft iron- Rowe

She flattens out those pesky problems, gets things straight. She and I had a run in, she burned my wrist. It was my fault I reached over the top of her. She is a good work horse. She can collapse and go with me places. Rowentas are the best irons no matter what I'm spoiled that I have my craft iron as one.

Next up is Ging-

These were given as a gift to me from my mom. 8in dress maker shears with flag handles. My birthday is on Flag Day so its kinda a special gift. Also it was given to me by my mom. They are only to be used with fabric, no paper. I was taught that at a young age.

Well these are just some of my friends. You will get to meet more as time goes on.

I kinda feel like Handy Manny with my tools, except mine don't sing or dance or speak Spanish...
