Whew!



It wasn't looking good - didn't think I'd have an opportunity to sew today. What???? Miss a day in September, National Sewing Month - couldn't let that happen. LOL



Late evening I managed to get into my sewing room to make eight more package blocks and add them to the other two rows. I wasn't sure about this quilt but I think it might be growing on me.



The jury is still out.





This is my pathetic green Olfa mat. It's seen better days and should be replaced. Sigh!


This Fiskars Rotating Cutting Mat is my favorite new toy in my sewing room. It's 8" x 8" and perfect for those cute Moda Candy squares (2.5" x 2.5"). I am loving this little cutie and am learning to keep it near my sewing machine for trimming little tidbits and such. Yes, my Olfa green mat definitely looks extremely pathetic underneath the pretty yellow mat. LOL


Take a look at my new red mat. I'm seriously in love with this new mat - red is my favorite color. My yellow Fiskars rotating cutting mat looks so pretty. Oh my! Makes me want to decorate my sewing room to match my mats. LOL

Wishing you a pieceful day.



In Friendship!

My favourite colour; red! And I already have the yellow one. Never had a chance to actually decorate the sewing room as I have been darned grateful to have a dedicated room for my playtime. Those colours would be perfect.

Yikes! I want a RED mat!!! I saw those red Christmas Moda mats last year and I was SOOOO envious of everyone who got them. I hope this means that red mats are becoming more widely available!

I like the Blizen quilt, I'm working on the same one. I started it a few weeks ago but put it aside to work on another quilt. I'll be getting back to it in a few days. My plan was to do the twin size version but we'll see if up to making a 140 blocks.
