Favourite Gadget

My friend Jennifer has shown me this before:

It is the round turntable cutting mat from Mathilda's Own. I have a turning cutting mat so always thought that one was much the same as another. Sorry, I was wrong.

This one turns so smoothly you would not believe. But it does not slip when pressing down to cut.

So if you are looking for a little luxury in your fabric cutting life, I suggest you hunt one of these down and treat yourself!

It is so good when cutting templates. Those of you who have sewn my Kaleidoscope Hexagon quilt( check out Nicky and latest quilted version of the pattern! or any other great quilts that have those handy templates will see the benefits!

In the meantime to cheer you up on this wet and grey July day in the UK, I have give away of some lovely fabric from 'Adorn It'. Check out their fabrics, they are always so sweet and a bit funky! 

Just leave a comment on this post to add a little sunshine to my day!

    I have a lazy susan type rectangle for my small cutting matt, love it.  What fun prints.  Welcome to my world of weather, it's pouring rain here in the Pacific NW.  Perfect for the 4th parade!  They say this is it, that the sun is going to break out this afternoon, but I wouldn't bet on it!  I'm just south of Paulette so we are both having the same day!

    Loving the round cutting mat! Mine is a huge square mat and difficult to work with sometimes for small projects.
    I'm getting married on Thursday, probably with a brolly in my hand, then off to Cornwall for a week. I hope I leave the rainy Manchester weather behind.
    Sending sunny thoughts your way.

    What a great idea – I wonder if you could make your own, or did I just watch too much Blue Peter as a child?
    The fabrics are gorgeous, though they make me think of autumn when we've had no sign of summer yet.
