    Thanks DD for my Christmas present

    Last week, someone posted about Hancock's sale. I got a gift card for Christmas that's been burning a hole in my pocket. I got the 50%, the extra 15%, and the free shipping!!!! What can be better than that!?! woo hoo

    I've been wanting a revolving cutting mat for some time now... this 8" one is just right for working on my Dear Jane blocks. Many of the patterns I've admired lately have used blacks and whites, so I got some of those. All of the fabric cuts are 3 yards, and they did not cut a smidge more than that either And I got 5 refill blades, too.

    It looks like I would have fun shopping in YOUR stash! Love these fabric choices. Money or gift cards are the perfect gift. The right size, the right color and what you want!! It's a win win gift♥

    Nice shopping. How do you like the revolving cutting mat? Is it worth the money?

    i've been using it all morning, now. sometimes it does not turn smoothly, but for the most part, i'm satisfied. i think, with anything new, one just has to learn how to use it... the right amount of pressure for the turn

    My son did that one year for me - a gift card to Joann's. That year I also received an extremely generous gift from my co-workers - a huge basket with tea, tea cups, fabrics, and misc sewing supplies (plus a gift card to a LQS that I adore). THAT was the best Christmas ever! I had an absolute blast shopping at Joann's & the LQS.

    You did good. I am interested in one of those turning mats. I will have to start saving my pennies.

    I'll have to look at the rotating mat. I'm doing the Farmer's Wife, and it sounds like it would come in handy doing all those blocks! I use the term "doing" loosely...I've done 3 blocks so far!! You did good on the shopping!!
