BIG, BIG DISCOVERY... I MEAN BIG!!! October 14 2014

LIKE REALLY, REALLY BIG!!!!   BIGGER THAN THIS....

 

 

I DO BELIEVE IT IS EVEN BIGGER THAN THIS....

 

 

Sometimes the best discoveries come from necessity.   I'll show you what I'm talking about.   And remember, this is BIG!!!

 

First of all, let me introduce you to THE BOSS.

 

 

He sheds.   I mean he really, REALLY sheds!!!!

 

SEW, in order that we can wear things like this....

 

 

A-a-a-a-a-nd this....

 

 

(I know this may be hard to believe, but that is NOT me in any of the above photos)

 

Okay, so back on track.   With a yellow fellow in the house who sheds like crazy, wearing anything black or navy blue is nearly impossible.   You always have to have one of these close by.

 

 GET READY!!!!  This is where the BIG DISCOVERY HAPPENS!!!!!

You know when you are incredibly busy with a quilting project(S) that has a due date that is getting closer by the second?   You are SEW PRESSED for time you could....
 

 

Well, we've all been there.  

 

The busier you are, the messier things get, BUT you've got to keep it clean in order to stay organized AND work quickly!!!!!   Remember quilters!   We're talking DEADLINE HERE!!!!

 

Well, the other day when it was crazy busy here with a project that JUST HAD TO GET DONE, my cutting board was getting a little nasty.    You know the kind of nasty I'm talking about.
Threads and bits of fabric building up and you're grabbing this little guy to rub it off....

And you rub and you rub and it TAKES TIME!!!!

REMEMBER!!!!  YOU'VE GOT A DEADLINE!!!
SEW, right beside my cutting board was my iron that I HAD been using to press a black shirt, AND the lint roller WAS RIGHT THERE just when I was having to clean my cutting board YET again.
WELL, I GRABBED THAT LINT ROLLER AND WITH ONE SWIPE MY CUTTING BOARD WAS CLEAN.   I MEAN C-L-E-A-N!!!!   CLEAN LIKE BRAND NEW.
NO RESIDUE.
NO STICKY STUFF LEFT BEHIND.
JUST A CLEAN CUTTING BOARD.
THIS IS WHAT MY ROLLER LOOKED LIKE AFTER A FEW SWIPES ACROSS MY CUTTING MAT...

EWWWWWW..... amazing, huh?   BUT FAST!!!!!

 

 

And my cutting mat looked like this.....

 

 

And so my official cutting mat cleaner is NOW a lint roller!!!

 

And that, you will be happy to know, is....
