The Cutting Edge

Thanks for all the positive comments about my product review. I found it interesting that a couple of the comments mentioned that the sharpener can actually wear the blade down. It was something that I wondered about myself as I used the ruler. Being that I have various sizes of rulers that do their own little jobs, I don't think I would use The Cutting Edge for every project. But it most certainly did make a difference in the performance of my blade.

I did find a website if you are interested in more information about the rulers and Sullivan's other products.

One other thing I'd like to mention is my cutting mat. I have always used an Olfa cutting mat. I have found that the Olfa mat and my Olfa Rotary cutter appear to compliment each other. I get a much longer life on my blades by using them as a companion. I've used Olfa for over 25 years of quilting. I have three mats, all different sizes. I could not be happier with their product.

And guess what the mailman brought? A little surprise package!

That sweet Carrie from "A Passion for Applique" sent the cutest little Christmas present. And YES I did open it :-)

Thanks Carrie. Your thoughtfulness is always appreciated.

Have a Happy Quilting day!

Very sweet gift! And I, too, use an Olfa Mat with my Olfa cutter.... just like it that way. I've tried the Fiskars mats but I don't like the markings on them as well.

XOXO,

Cyndi

I tried to find an Olfa mat when I went looking a couple of weeks ago, and they were out - but I did get a double-sided one and that will do for now. They were half-off, no wonder they didn't have a great selection.

Isn't Carrie the sweetest???

didn't think about the blade being worn down from the ruler.
So glad you like your little gift.
Merry Christmas dear friend.
