I had every intention of buying an Olfa mat when I went out on Saturday but someone commented that they found it difficult to see the lines with their green rulers. So I tried it in the store and found it was much easier to see my ruler lines with the new Friskars mat.
This one is pink on one side and blue on the other – a truely reversible mat (unlike other commenters, I do use the lines on both my ruler and my mat to line up fabric). I’m not too disappointed since I’ve been happy overall with my previous mats which were Friskars.

Another journal page – I’m still having fun doing these although I like the results from some pages better than others. I like today’s. You can see all the pages in my online album if interested.
I haven’t decided what the task of the day will be yet, maybe more knitting and I’ll work on bindings too. I’ve just got a couple days before I head to VA. This will be another road trip with visits to MD and PA – I’ll be on the move pretty much from the time I get there Thursday to the time I come home on Tuesday.
While I’m there we’ll be celebrating my Mom and brother’s birthdays…but today is Mom’s actual birthday so Happy Birthday Mom!
