    [QUOTE=carolaug;4834590]So many gadgets out there that we use once or twice and throw them in the closet never to be used again. I tried a seam ripper today that will be glued to my hip...love it...I made a sewing mistake (surprise)..time to try out the new seam ripper from Mighty Bright. This seam ripper is AWESOME. It is totally worth it. I love the magnifier. what a huge difference. and love how the seam ripper can rotate. It really does make ripping out seams a breeze and I can see what I am doing. Having a light on it is a nice bonus!

    Sounds great but at the cost I hope it stays sharp a good long time.

    I love Tiger Tape for making half-square triangles.

    Two things: A $3.00 stylus I bought at the LQS and a cotton tweezer made by clover,for pulling out the thread after the ripper has been lurking about. My friend gave it to me as a birthday present and it saves my fingers big time.

    On item is the "Add a quarter ruler" - great for paper piecing. My turntable cutting mat is another very handy item. I guess the item other than the sewing machine that I use the most is my "June Taylor Press N Cut" my daughter gave me for Christmas a few years ago - one side is for ironing, the other a cutting mat - I live in a townhome and my kitchen/living room is my sewing area, can't really keep the ironing board up for ironing the blocks as I complete them, this little mat is ideal.

    Main item, though not used on a daily basis: the Simplicity Bias Tape Maker. Worth every penny. I'm always amazed as the fabric comes out the folding/pressing area and it's even. Great time saver.

    My Olfa rotary cutter. My favorite is the one where you squeeze to cut and the blade automatically goes back "up" when you release it.

    I love using the Wing Clipper templet for making flying Geese.

    I use a crochet hook. I find it just as effective.
