I'm trying not to add fabric to my stash for a while until I sew down a bit of what's on hand (I firmly refuse to fully fabric fast, though - there are too many amazing lines coming out this spring!), but that hasn't stopped me from acquiring some other new things: tools!
I received the numbered pins as a birthday gift, and just broke them out to use on my last project. They were quite handy - I didn't have to rip out ANY seams for losing track of what row I was on. Talk about a time saver! ; )
The rotary mat was a 50% off coupon purchase at Jo-Ann's last week after using previously mentioned numbered pins on a project with one too many HSTs. I always say I wish it went faster - well, from now on trimming HSTs will go faster!
And finally, I've hung the new ruler rack that my parents gifted me for Christmas. It's wonderful! Before I had them all hanging on two long nails, and every time I needed one, I'd have to shuffle a few others off. I'd end up leaving them about the room because it was such a hassle. Not anymore! (And, yes, that big 12" square hanging underneath does fit in the rack, but as it's right next to my design wall, I wasn't willing to give up the extra inches it stuck out.)
How about you? Any new tools in your stash/studio that are saving you time?
