Garage sale find

Pretty boring stuff for most everyone, but I am psyched!!! I bought this very cool fabric cutter at a garage sale yesterday, for $75.
I cut literally TONS of fabric at the studio, that I use to make rugs with. I have an electric hand held rotary cutter, that works very well, the only problem is the pain in my shoulder blade after cutting fabric for hours.
This old cutter actually has wheels on the bottom, and you hold the red handle, and move the cutter over a table, cutting the fabric as you go.
I am not exactly sure how this is going to work for me, but I'm sure I can figure it out.
If not, there's always Ebay.
I spent most of today planting perennials, hauling manure, and pulling weeds. I didn't take any pictures, because the sky was dark, and the wind was blowing up a storm, and I was really afraid that if I brought my camera outside and put it down, I might forget it, and it would get ruined when the rain came.
This is not a frivolous fear.......I have done it before.
Ouch.
Pictures later.
