In September I found myself in need of a new blade for my Olfa rotary cutter. I went to Michael’s and was absolutely shocked to find the price for ONE blade $16.99!!!! (Canadian dollars) Now with our 13% tax that brought the total price to $19.20 for ONE blade. Too much for me.
I remembered my friend Linda over in France had ordered blades from the U.S. that were carpet cutter blades being sold to quilters. She was happy with them and they fit her Olfa cutter. So I too ordered from Moonwishes Sewing and Crafts.

Worked for me! Great service and prompt delivery. Thanks Moonwishes.
For the past two weekends I’ve made the Quick Cinnamon Rolls I posted about here. So for a change this weekend I made the following recipe for scones. With tea and homemade apricot jam – delicious.
Ingredients Preheat Oven to 425F
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 cup cold butter, diced
- 1 egg
- 2/3 cup milk or light cream
- 2 tablespoons sugar
In mixing bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. With pastry cutter or two knives, cut in butter until mixture is about the size of peas with some larger pieces.
In a small bowl, beat egg lightly; remove about 1 tablespoon of beaten egg and reserve for topping. To remaining egg, add milk; add all at once to dry ingredients, stirring with fork to make a soft, slightly sticky dough. Gather gently into a ball and turn out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead very lightly a few times until smooth. Roll out dough to about 1/2 to 3/4 inch thickness. Using 2-inch/5 cm round cutter, cut out circles or cut into eight wedges. Place 1 inch apart on ungreased baking sheet. Brush tops of scones lightly with reserved egg.
Bake in centre of 425 F oven until tops are light golden, 12 to 14 minutes.
It appears that Kaaren from the Painted Quilt has received the quilts that Allie collected blocks for and beautifully assembled – great job Allie! To read Kaaren’s wonderfully heart felt post please go here.
Keeping all of you who need them – in my thoughts and prayers,
