My luck, she is a changin'

Lookie what I got in the mail yesterday. I ordered a 3' by 6' mat from Speedpress.com. I ordered the Magic Mat. It looks just like a rotary mat you might pick up at Joann's but this one is a little more stout. The ship it loosely rolled in a box. The edges are still a bit curled but I think they will relax in a day or two. Of course, right now it's on my dining room table. I'll have to put it on the guest bed for now. My husband has decided that I need the back half of the garage so he is going to put in a false wall and build me a table for my cutting mat. He's the best.

I also received my September BWOF in the mail. I am tracing out that cute 60s dress today and going to sew it up with inexpensive fabric before I cut it in a wool crepe. I am a little scared of the front edge seams. I always have a hard time with that type of seam.

And thank you so much for the kind comments about my duds. I know that this phase will pass but it is just frustrating! And I have a ton of questions to answer; I'll be doing that later today.

I starred that design to make sometime for myself as well. But now that I'm rereading it, it's for petites. Darn. I'm excited to see how yours sews up!
