2015 (written 23 August 2015):
Today I learned to cut fabric. We don’t yet have quite the right tools (the cutting board and ruler will be delivered over the next few days) but for practice, my father helped me cut the pieces of a Log Cabin block from white cotton.
I really enjoyed using the ‘pizza cutter’ – so much easier than scissors which are all I’ve used before for a little experiment with dressmaking – and my father is very good a making sure everything’s square. I made a few mistakes but am happy to be learning a new skill.
Tomorrow I’ll encounter sewing …
