A New Toy

Triangles

Quilters need new toys from time to time. Life can be grey and dreary sometimes and toys invariably lift moods and improve the general spirit. If a toy does all this and moreover speeds up a process which can be otherwise tedious and time consuming, so much the better. Depending on the price tag attached to such a toy, a decision to acquire it can be taken rather quickly or can make necessary some serious debates with your personal bank balance. While these debates lasts, a quilter can still hover over catalogues, web sites or displays in shops...
