Another in my intermittent series of posts with very few words which, as you know, is rare for me and my first ‘tight lipped’ one since arriving back in England.
I bought my very large self healing cutting mat when I first started patchwork classes around 20 years ago.
It served me very well until this happened.
No longer a flat surface on which to cut fabric, it had to go.
Aided and abetted by me.
I can now attest that steam blocking knitting on top of a cutting mat – even when you have a thick felt pad in between – does not end well.
In case you had ever thought it would.
Every cloud has a silver lining however and I now have a shiny new mat in a much more cheerful green with inches on one side….
and a lovely shade of blue with centimetres on the other.
Still, I won’t be doing that again.
