    So we were at the Walmart cashing a check, and I mentioned I needed a new rotary blade (Mine is just mushing the fabric up!) so we were there and I started drooling having resisted the fabric. I was looking at all the gadgets and new cutting mats that I wanted, and hubby said I could get a new ruler! My old wooden one finally bit the dust, and I have been cutting wonky ever since...so I got this, the new blade and a spool of thread (I always seem to run out of white!) All for $10! *Dances*

    Now off to finish a project...if I don't get distracted first...which is a good possibility!

    I have been having so much fun with my new toys. I don't have to press so hard on my rotary cutter anymore, it just slices through like butter! *whee!*

    Suprising what a new blade will do, isn't it? I just changed mine and could'nt believe the difference! I don't know why we wait so long to change them. Sweet hubby you have there.

    Here's what I finished up tonight with the new toys that I got! My blocks for the blue and white star exchange. I think they're really pretty!

    They even sparkle no less! Very pretty colors.

    Congrats on your new tools. Your hubby sounds like a nice guy.

    I neglect to change my blades sometimes even though I have them stored up and ready to do so. I get all tensed up between the shoulder blades and feel the pain the next day. Why do I get into such a hurry? A blonde thing I am sure.... LoL!

    How generous of Dh, having a clear ruler and new mat will make your life sooo much easier, you will wonder how you ever put up with the wooden ruler before :D

    Your blue & White star blocks are lovely too :D :D :D
