April Tools Day

Last week I was contacted by Moda Lissa from MODA to see if I wanted to participate in her April Tools blog post.  Of course I said “YES”.

I have tons of favorite tools in my sewing room, so when it came down to choosing just one to send off to Lissa, it was a somewhat difficult choice.

I got to thinking about what I search for, grab for and use the most in my sewing room and besides the cutting mat, rulers, rotary cutter and all the other usual items, I just had to pick my calculator.

Now in this day and age of iPads and other technological gizmos that we have, and which I use the calculator on as well . . . my good old, over-used, still operating, little black pocket-style calculator serves me well.

So there you have it . . . simple personified!

BUT, if you want to see what other designers in the world are saying their favorite tool is, head on over to the

 Moda Lissa  blog

to read about them all.

Thank you Lissa for including me!  It has been enlightening to see all the tools that rank up there as the favorites.  It’s always a good day when you learn something new!

Here is my Whiskey baby . . . six weeks, three days old.  I think she is bird watching here – pretty intent on something :)

Ah, what a cutie. My calculator is actually the computer. Excel works for me...

A calculator really is an important tool for a quilter. Thanks for the heads up on the tool list. So fun to see what's out there to help us out.
