I'm a left handed person. There. Now you know.
Actually, I write with my left hand which makes me a lefty, but I actually do a lot of other things with my right hand. For example, I knit like a right-handed person because my right handed mother taught me that way. I also throw a ball with my right hand, and bowl with my right hand.
This either-handedness (is that a word?) comes in handy when I'm rotary cutting. I can cut with either hand. That annoying first cut to straighten the edge before cutting a strip to size is not a problem.
So, where IS the problem?
Well, I've started writing some instructions for a quilt class and I realize that my left-handedness might be an issue. For example, take a look at this photo:
This photo is part of a step by step guide I wrote for mitering corners, and until I looked at this photo, I didn't realize that the whole way that I miter corners is probably backward to a right hander. So, do I retake the series of photos to show the process all in the opposite direction, or do I just assume my students will make the adjustment on their own?
I'll have to think on this a bit, but I would really welcome your input.
