Did I happen to mention that I spent too much money at the AQS Lancaster Quilt Show last week… Well I did… spend too much that is!
I got a Martelli Mat set – I’ve been a Martelli Cutter Lover for a long time and the set came with their heavy duty double sided mat (it is lined on the other side as well with a purple background), a non-skid ruler (not shown) a cutter and a 5 pack of blades. I am loving this mat!!
I have got no less than 6 small plastic bins with leftovers from projects… I hope to use this AccuQuilt Go Cutter to put a dent in all those odd pieces of fabric.
I renewed my AQS membership and the goody bag contained a small pair of embroidery scissors, then I picked up a pair of curved and straight Havel Scissors (buy one get one free!), I bought an ironing board cover that will fit the big ironing surface I made and an iron shoe – suppose to be that nothing sticks to them and they make ironing better, I found a cool little curved ruler from a designer from Easthampton, MA, I found 3 interesting patterns to try out, I picked up a bunch of fabric for a project, I found a nifty device called a strip stick and a device that’s suppose to make sewing long strips easier (we shall see), and I picked up a book from an Amish writer.
I’ll let you know what I think about some of these things as I try them out…
