My new toy arrived yesterday. I own an Accucut studio die cut machine. I purchased it before the "To Go" model was available. Now for the "new toy". It is a die that cuts 16, one and a half inch squares. I swap "Postage stamp" size squares. Each set has 50 different squares in it and we usually send 25 sets. That equals 1250 squares. This is my first time swapping. I could have used my rotary cutters but, I have so many scraps that it would be easier to use a die and cut 5-8 sets of 16 at one time. Here is the process:

This didn't take more that 2 hours. What took the longest was deciding what fabric to cut. I have extras left over for me, so I will be getting 1250 from others. I am so excited. I need to do the same for a neutral group. 1250 more to go!
I have been working on cleaning my bedroom since my oldest is gone. I have done quite a bit. I will post before and after pictures. Yes I have taken the "Dirty" pictures before hand.
Ok here is one. (not the worse one.)
The wall in the back is mainly scrapbooking and papercrafts.
It has helped me to work on getting it cleaned by blogging it. It keeps me on track. I like showing my progress.
I need to go and sew. Have a good night.
