Rulers!

 Did you see this?  
It's my name at the bottom of Pat Sloan's post today!

  

 Seriously, I screamed.  And Mark came running to ask if there was a mouse or something bad.  
Nope.  Just the winner of a fantastic prize!


I get one of each - I'm especially excited about the 16.5" square.  I hate squaring up using just my mat grid.  I don't think it's as accurate.

And they sharpen your rotary blade as you cut.  How cool is that.

AND it's not fabric - a prize that doesn't count against my stash.  
Awesome 
(especially since I was forced to place a FabricShack order this week - more on that when it arrives)

 

I can't wait for them to arrive.   I think I could have used them and their grippy backs on this lovely diamond block.  

Both of those fabrics are beautiful voile.  My first time working with it, and it's a bit slippery!  Plus it's a swap block and the fabric was limited and not mine.  So super nervous about missing a cut.

I do love that sophisticated Anna Maria Horner, though!

Congratulations.....that's a great prize.

I won over on her site the other day and had that email waiting for me when I woke up one morning.......it's a fun feeling. I didn't scream, though......well, maybe I squealed a bit !

When I saw your name I was super excited for you! You'll have to tell me what you honestly think of them. I've been thinking of getting a new smaller rectangular ruler...
