Certainly you guessed from yesterday’s post what today’s *hated* task of the day was going to be! It’s not what I’d call clean…but after 2 hours it’s certainly much neater except for the string corner and I’m not cleaning that up until I finish with them – it’s just not worth picking them during a project.
I even put on a new ironing board cover – I was at Joann’s last Friday and used a 40% off coupon. The old one was looking pretty scuzzy. Those shelves are pretty neat too aren’t they??
The cutting table is completely cleared off – a rare occurrence.
All the bins and bags on the floor cleared away (don’t count the ones in the closet, they’re neatly placed in there!)
The quilts in the process of being bound are stacked on the table which has been closed back to it’s smallest configuration.
So, that brings me to another question for you. Now that I can see my mat again, it’s in pretty bad shape. I don’t really mind replacing it since it’s only the 2nd one I’ve bought in the entire 8+ years I’ve been quilting and I do a LOT of cutting. So my question is:
What brand is your favorite mat and why? I’m pretty happy with the Friskar’s brand but I’m curious which ones you all use and how long they last you.
