    My birthday present

    My husband asked me what I wanted for my birthday. I really need nothing, but then I remembered I needed a cutting mat. I told him about it and he asked me to go ahead and order it. It arrived on Thurs. and I tried it later that day. It's like having a new blade in my cutter! Wow. Smooth as butter. I'm posting a picture of it and my old one which I've had for several years now and is very well worn.

    I know that some of you say that you don't use the cutting lines on the mat. Obviously I do.

    Congratulations! It certainly looks like your old one needed replacing but make sure you save it. You can flip it over to use the other side for squaring up your quilts with the rotary cutter and ruler.

    Happy Birthday! I'm like you on the destruction of a cutting mat.

    Great gift. Hope you have/had a very happy birthday!
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    It is great that you rememberd that you needed a new mat -- what brand is it. I use my lines too -- I just bought a new one and then went to a new quilt shop and she had one from England that had lines on both sides. She said it is wonderful -- price but the best she had used. Can't remember the brand since I just got a new Olfa.

    Nothing like a new cutting mat -- enjoy.

    It's an Olfa and I have inches in one side and cm on the other. Perfect.
