Out With The Old -- In With The New!

I was supposed to go to the opening of a new craft mall today. Unfortunately the trip was was canceled (not the craft mall opening), so I decided to take stock of some of my sewing essentials. For some time I've known that I need to replace my two most-used rotary cutting rulers. I've always used Omni-Grid rulers and attached a non-slip backing to them (which doesn't work all that well, I might add). I've seen the Olfa Frosted Advantage rulers for while now and they've intrigued me, so I thought I would give them a try. I'll let you know how they work!

While I was at the store, I spied this charm pack of Moda Recess. I've had this apron pattern for some time and loads of charm packs to make it with, but I really liked the top fabric in the charm pack and decided to use it as the main fabric of the apron. Only problem was - the store I was in didn't have a bolt of that color! So I'll be going over to the Fat Quarter Shop online after this and ordering some - and it's on sale!

I can't believe the response I've had to my Whirl Into Winter Giveaway ! If you haven't left a comment yet, you can do it here all the way through January 14th to be eligible to win. Thanks so much to all of you who have left comments so far! It seems most of you would like to be somewhere in winter where it snows - even if that place is home, in front of a fire, with hot chocolate, your family and your sewing! A few of you would like to be on a warm beach, but most prefer the winter! Mr. Squash and I are having a great time reading all the comments - and they come from near and very far!

Oh I just bought some of that non slip backing for my rulers. I got it for 50% off at Joann's. I will give it a try.

I would love to hear how the rulers work out!

Candace do you have any of the green Omnigrid rulers? They're non slip. A comparison of the two would be great.

That's a darling apron!
