I did not know that a cutting mat could make my sewing life so easy!
I have been working on a "trip around the world" quilt. Half way through cutting the strips using scissors or rotary cutter on my vegetable cutting board, I ended up with painful fingers and an aching neck. That was when I decided to buy a self-healing cutting mat.
Now my life is so much easier. Something that took me a whole afternoon to cut, takes me less than 2 hours with my new mat.
Three cheers to my new mat! :)
