Clever lady!  I'm glad you found something that works for you.  Now I need to go check out Jordan Fabric's site.  I also have several jelly rolls I bought in my reckless years.

Judy:  I've been using a hand weight since I saw her video some time back (I might add that I certainly didn't use the weights for working out).  The weight is a major help when I cut.

Love Donna and her shop.  We visited there two years ago and she is a charming and very personable lady.

hum, interesting.  Seems like I heard someone mention that previously but had forgotten.  Thanks for the reminder, will have to try that.  I have a couple of those weights on Ranger's cat tree (so it doesn't wobble so much when he jumps on it)

Please put a paint can on Ranger's cat tree if you steal his weights!

I would hate to think of Ranger being surprised scream_cat because his tree is suddenly wobbly. pouting_cat

there is also a 30lb weight on each of them - I don't pick those up stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes.  The tree on the tile especially will go sliding as he hits it at run frequently, mostly when I'm coming with the food dish.  He gets fed on the tree so that the doggies can't help themselves.

I have a mental picture of your cat sliding into "home base" at dinner time ....

Clever kitty has learned to survive in house with huge doggies with help of kind-hearted woman.

That IS a great way to hold down the far end of the ruler!  Thanks for sharing.

For all of you who have un-assigned jelly rolls, go to pinterest and find the Jelly Snowflake quilt.  It's so cute and easy and only takes 14 strips.  Many aren't even done with wintery strips.  I'm about to finish one, just have to decide if I want some kind of border on it.

Made it in July, when it came out as a mystery with Christmas scraps. Than I free motioned the "Visit from St Nicholas" poem over it and gave it away as a Christmas gift.
