drool worthy

I keep seeing some of the neatest stuff out there in blogland.  Some things I have just had to rush out and buy.  Like these Campfire marshmallows.  They're the Jumbo Roasters and they are HUGE.

My husband was amazed when he saw them.  Apparently, he thought I was exaggerating!  I hope we get a chance to go out to the canyon this week and roast these puppies.  They are just begging to become giant smores.

Some things I see out in blogland, I just can't have...yet.  I think these are going to end up on my Christmas list this year.  Do you think I am too old to write to Santa?

I've been wanting one of these:

The OLFA compass cutter.

And one of these:

OLFA's 17" Rotating Mat

And, of course, one of these:

Accuquilt Go! Cutter

But I know I haven't been good enough for one of these:

Brother Innov-is NX-2000 Laura Ashley sewing machine.  Wow, that's a mouthful!

So, has anyone tried any of these?  What do you think?  I hate to spend money on something and have it not be as awesome as I thought it would be!

I've seen those marshmallows and they are HUGE!! I have one of those rotating mats and it is awesome for trimming up HSTs!

I have had 2 different Brother machines and I would not trade in my Janome for another Brother for anything. Definitely try it out before you buy it. And if it is a mostly plastic casing, I would pass. Just my opinion. :(

jennie of sunflower quilts was just contacted by accuquilt to try it out and give away one on her blog. keep your eye out for the giveaway!

We've done the giant marshmallows .. GS loves it. Only thing is he roast them but only eats the skin ... someone else has to eat the biggie part. LOL

I have the rotating mat ... could not live without it.

Don't own any of the other items. Do own a Janome (love it) and Prince Charming (Nolting PRO 24" which I love love).

I have the Olfa cutter and rotating mat and love both for circular cutting. I'd love to have a GO someday - especially for some of those crazy shapes.

I am going to be watching for those giant mallows.

Definitely want a Go-Cutter. It's on my wish list.

I have the rotating mat, and it's great for cutting triangles and small pieces!

LOL I also have the mat and really like it. Bought mine with a JoAnn's coupon so it wasn't too pricey. I also keep it by my sewing machine...nice small mat for quick cutting.

I am LOVING the new blog look! I especially like your new signature. AND Stitches is spelled correctly! LOL!

I purchased a OLFA circle cutter - can't wait to get it in the mail. I've seen some GO giveaways lately in blog land - someone previously mentioned Jenny for Sunflower Quilts - she is about to post about a giveaway. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you!

I just happened to see this post on Paula Reid's blog where she tested the Laura Ashley sewing machine. I would like to test drive. It looks like a dream machine. I'd really like to hear what the retail price is. I'd also like to test the Bernina 820 but the suggested retail price is crazy.

Amy said...

Saw this on Paula Reid's blog tonight. She sewed on the Brother sewing machine. I'd like to try it. Wonder about retail price. I'd like to test the Bernina 820 too. But the sticker shock is crazy.

Too funny... My sister saw those Marshmellows in Harmons and is taking 2 bags back with her because they don't have them in NC. I wish we lived closer... I have the above - my babylock instead of brother (but they're the same). I would gladly share in place of using your new toy - that makes me jealous... Oh, well... I guess we're happy with what we have.
