Tight Lipped Tuesday #29

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.

The culprit

white and teal steam clothes iron plugged on ironing board

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.
