On Sunday we were out and about. One of the places I had to go was Michael's as I needed some new blades for my rotary cutter, which I use to cut out material.
I was shocked to see they were $49.99 for a pack of five blades. Anyone who quilts how long have they been that expensive? I will admit to not having to buy any for a while. Also pleased I had a 50% off coupon, so only paid just over $28 after taxes after the coupon. Which I guess is better than nothing. Quilting isn't the cheapest hobby out there, that's for sure.
Question for the quilters out there: how do you dispose of your old blades?
I forgot to show you our latest acquisition from the charity shop:
It needs recovered and waxed/stained; which we are going to do in the New Year. I think I paid $38 for it and dh uses it to put his feet on when sitting on the sofa.
Last week when I met Jane for lunch in Orillia, we went to a restaurant called Sixteen Front. It was a really lovely place and here are a couple of photos of the place. First the toilet paper in the ladies bathroom:
I love to see the toilet paper folded like that, always a good sign if you ask me!!
This is a photo of my meal. Salad, soup and sandwich, just can't remember the flavours now!!
The photo I took of Jane's meal, which you can sort of see, was blurry, which was a shame. If you are in Orillia for any reason both Jane and I thoroughly enjoyed our meal there and the whole ambiance of the place, and it's well priced.
Another great Christmas song:
