So to say I am excited about the new cutting mat I got for my birthday would be a vast understatement. It is so absolutely fantastic. The old one had a huge bubble in the center from one of our moves where it didn't quite stay laying flat which made it such pain to cut in the middle.
And because of that, the side lines started to look less like lines and more like gorges. Seriously, I start to wonder how I cut straight lines on some of these :) But never fear, this good old friend won't be tossed out. It will now be my traveling mat that I will use when teaching. Then I won't be near as stressed about trying to keep it laid out on the seats flat which is impossible with seat belts ;)
Seriously, I keep rubbing my hand over the new one because I love how absolutely perfectly smooth it is :)
But it won't stay like that for long. I was so excited I whipped out some new projects. A quick fun project using solids from Bonnie and Camille's Scrumptious line.
And a not so quick project to cut out using Sweetwater's Road 15 line. I can not wait to start putting this quilt together. I am so totally excited about it!!!
So now that I am all cut out, its back to the sewing. Have a Happy Quilting Day!!
