Posts Tagged new cutting mat
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.
