The other day I went to Walmart to purchase some sewing notions - this was before the mishap with the sewing machine. There isn't much to choose from since all the Walmarts in my area have gotten rid of their sewing and much of their craft department. They basically sell yarn, and some don't even do that. Anyways, to my surprise, they had some of their cutting mats on clearance. Yes! I was able to buy the last two 23"x23" cutting mats for $5 a piece. (Now I can finally use those rotary cutters someone gave me - when I get a ruler.)
I also purchased these long flower pins. I saw someone blocking some knitted squares with those and I thought they were so cute.
I am now blocking the Coastal Granny Lapghan that I made earlier this year. I have never blocked something using this method before. I usually try and use the steam on my iron. Here's to new things. Hope this comes out right. (I love that variegated yarn.)
* The cutting mats are covered with a towel because I ran out of room on the paper cutting board.
