Rotary Cutter Holder, Done

Winter seems to be Retreat Season in the Quilting World. I think it's because if you're going to be Stuck inside (lest you venture out to freeze your butt off!) sewing anyway, why not do it among friends??? Sounds perfectly reasonable to me!
Oh, how I wish I was "retreating" myself...but that would certainly require packing, and that alone would give me an anxiety attack! I'm still recovering from my two week "stint" in snowy TX!
But as I read a post on another Blog (which shall remain nameless since it was before my second cup of Java and I have no idea which one it was among the 158 (yeah, that's the # of blogs on my Bloglines, I'm a lurker, what can I say???) that I track like a broker tracks the stock market... do you keep a tab open all day and just check in on your bloglines during your breaks? Is that normal? Should I seek treatment for this addiction??? I'm just wondering out loud, ignore me, LOL!
Back to the topic...I was reading of how she was packing her bags upon bags of projects to take to her weekend of Bliss and I remembered that I made this Rotary Cutter Holder a while back and it travels to retreats with Nancy who said her RC was just the right size for it. This lead me to think that there must be some more RC's that could use a little carrier of their own as they hit the Retreat Circuit. How fancy, eh? I love it! I made some kits for it, you can find them HERE!
Are you a "retreater"? Have you heard of a jammies only retreat? I like to quilt in my jammies, I'm so bad! LOL!
Update: These kits have sold out!

I STILL use it Brenda.... I get more compliments on it and a couple of peeps have tried to "steal" it...LOL

Any retreat can be an all-jammie retreat!! Just only take jammies...

I don't keep google-reader up ALL the time...but I do check in ALL the time and hit the refresh button one more time before I close down the computer....LOL

I'm going on my first quilting retreat in February. I think I might have to have one of the rotary cutter holders! FWIW, I like to quilt in sweats (loose) and a snug shirt (so nothing gets in the way of the rotary cutter)! Thanks for sharing!! :)

I'm not sure how many blogs I follow, but it's a lot. I check for new posts several times a day and also refresh my blogger dashboard for new posts... and I am a lurker. I am trying to not be such a lurker anymore though. (see I am posting a comment here! lol)

That is a lovely RC holder! I should make one someday.

Love the case. I'm up to 106 blogs in my reader and I just started reading a few months ago. Much easier to keep up with once I switched to Google Reader. I do keep it up all day but only read a couple of times a day. LOL
