The Husband Made Me Do It
Two things I am thankful for today.
I am not sure what happened to winter, but today is positively springlike. Sunny and warm with these two little beauties showing off. I had to take a picture before some freak freeze ruins them. I think this is the earliest we have ever seen crocuses in bloom. We are all torn between loving the warm weather and despairing for lack of snow days. For now, I will take the warm sun and bask in it.
Secondly: New Rotary Cutting Mat and Tool
Last week, when the husband saw me struggle with cutting my rainbow road pieces on my 17 x 23 inch mat, he said to me, “I think you need to get a bigger mat.” Well, he didn’t need to say it again. While I was at the store, I decided to get a new cutter as well and I am not sorry. I almost didn’t buy the Olfa stuff. It is much more expensive than the Fiskars that I currently have, but I was drawn to that extra measuring grid in the center and the fact that everything is made in Japan. I haven’t used it much yet, but I will say that the cutting tool really is easier on my hands. I am constantly struggling with my extremely weak hands and wrists, so anything to make a task less strenuous is worth the money to me. As a bonus, all rotary cutting tools were 40% off at JoAnn’s and I had a coupon for an extra 20% off my purchase. That made the price for this set more than 50% off at checkout. I love a good sale!
What are you thankful for today?
