Thanks to Wade and Alexander and my sister Tiffany, my sweet Santas. Look what they gave me for Christmas this year! Wade and Alex gave me a Townsend cutter with a #6 blade and Tiffany gave me the #4 blade. The dream gift for a rug hooker, something I have desired for years.
What a difference this will make. No more uneven cuts on my Bliss, which served me well since I bought it in 1995. But now I am happily enjoying the evening, imagining all the rugs I am going to make in the coming year with my Townsend cutter.
