i heart my new cutting mat

For reals. Why did I never get one before now? I used a cheapo (small) scrapbook cutting mat that i got for $2, and a cheapo rotary blade was…well, cheap. I can’t believe I made quilts with that thing. Yesterday Aimee, Kim, and I (plus kiddos) went to Joann’s, and both Kim and I got these SAH-Weet cutting mats at 50% off. Gotta love those coupons.

I bought a quilting “set” with the ruler and rotary cutter, and I am in love. Sorry, Rory. I’ve spent the last half hour cutting out fabric for a new item for the store (coming soon!), and I can’t believe how much better it is now. Ahh. I want to make a quilt now just to use it. Aimee picked out the cutest fabric for a quilt, I can’t wait to see how it turns out!

So, back to watching Wall*E and playing with my cutter.


  1. you have the cutest blog and make the cutest things! i found you through a friend’s design blog and just wanted to say “hi.” that felt pasta is killing me! way to go!

  2. Fun, fun, fun!!!!

  3. Can’t wait to see what the new project is. I think I want a cutting mat too…actually, I know I do!

  4. I can’t believe you made so quilts with a small cutting mat! You will zoom through even more projects now. I super heart the felt food. Makes me a little hungry!!!
