Tickled Pink!!

I am an avid blog reader (when I have time) :) and tonight one of the blogs I follow as regularly-as-I-can with the punk at home (and the dude, which is just like another kid!)... Freckled Whimsy Featured me on "Tidbit Tuesday"!!

WHOO HOO! :) This is exciting to my occasionally boring teacher self!

And...I wanted to show that I really do use the Harbor Freight blades (on both cutters) AND I have a pack in waiting....(actually I probably have several, but the dude has taken to using my sewing room/office as the dump-anything-he-doesn't-have-a-home-for space and it's gotten a bit cluttered in there.  THAT is another project for another day.

So, here is a picture of my cutting space (well a simulated one anyway, it's NEVER that neat):

AND as a thank you and an "I'm so excited that anyone is actually reading this blog, even if it is for free stuff) I will give away a 2 pack of the Harbor Freight "Central Forge Carpet Cutting Blades" (as pictured) to one lucky winner (more if I can find them!) that leaves a comment on this blog. (Pack of two blades ONLY.  Not my well used, old Olfa cutters!)

Comments will be closed Friday, Feb 25 and the winner will be drawn (provided there is more than one comment!) shortly there after.
Please leave a way for me to get into contact with you!

  1. Kenna, how is it that I found your blog thru freckled whimsy? I really need to go to harbor freight, besides these blades, there's also that cool knitting bag that Sandra got there. I've just never made it down to the store!

  2. Just found your blog via Karrie. Great idea. I wonder now if Home Depot or Lowes would carry such an item--worth looking into.

  3. Just came over from Freckled Whimsy's blog. Wow, who would have thought of those working in an Olfa rotary cutter -- evidently you did!

  4. Thanks for posting about using these in your Olfa. I have a friend I picked up a pack for with the Grace rotary cutter, and she sliced her finger with her cutter. I am glad to see that you have been using them without incident.

  10. Hi Kenna! I've heard this tip before and have searched my area here in Canada but can't find this style of carpet blade. Thanks very much for a chance.

  12. How do they fit on the cutters? My cutter has a weird shaped peg to fit the hole of the blade on and I thought they had to match.

  14. After reading about this, I wondered whether they stay sharp as long, or maybe even longer, than the "quilters" kind. So... if you pick me to send the giveaway to, I'll be glad to test them :-) I don't mind!

  15. Thanks for the tip. I'll try it as soon as the snow clears! I visit my son in Long Beach a couple of times a year - one of the times also includes the Long Beach International Quilt Show. Dori

  23. You're too kind! I wish I had read this earlier, the next town over has a HF and I would have stopped in. Maybe I'll stop this Saturday and definitely take my Fiskars cutter with to make sure they work before leaving. haha

  26. Thanks for the tip on blades. Will be trying this for sure. Love your nine patch quilt. So glad I am not the only one behind on the postage stamp quilt along! Not sure how I found your blog, but am glad I did. Thanks!

  28. Just curious how you like the blades? I bought a bunch just recently and find that they are duller than dull...didn't know if it was just a fluke or if other people were having a problem with them or not...
