Christmas Goodies for my Sewing Room

It is just past midnight here and the new year has begun. The date right now is 1/1/11. I expect this new year will be just as wonderful as my previous 48 upon this earth.

Before I haul myself upstairs and settle in for what will be a much too short night's sleep, I did want to wish each of my readers a very happy, healthy and prosperous 2011. Oh yes, and I wanted to show you two of my Christmas gifts that my sweet husband gave me...

Christmas Goodies for my Sewing RoomDo you know what those two Olfa items are?

Christmas Goodies for my Sewing RoomThe mat is a 17 inch rotating mat...cool, huh? And the tool is a circle cutter that is so much fun to use! It's like one of those compasses we used to have to bring to school but never used but once or twice, only instead of having a stubby little pencil at the business end of it, there is a tiny little rotary cutting blade.

Christmas Goodies for my Sewing RoomThat is my very first circle cut with my new circle rotary cutter. So perfect! I can't wait to come up with a project that requires lots of fabric circles!

I also have used the rotating mat already to trim a quilt block. It's so nice to leave the block in place and just spin the mat...makes for much more accurate trimming.

Now I'm off to the snore shelf. I'm losing beauty sleep as I type! Can't have that!

Happy New Year everyone!

Happy Stitching!
