Well, here we go. I'm thinking I cropped too large a piece and absolutely everyone will know what it is. On the other hand, maybe I posted this before and don't remember!

I've just watched a cookery programme on the BBC so my thoughts are still on... pasta?

It looks like some sort of fabric to me, perhaps felt. My first inclination is say a handbag of sorts?

Nope, nope, and nope. However, one of the words in Mags' sentences may be a clue....

To add: Ren, a trainer? Me? Hahahaha! On the other hand, my husband and I just joined the Community Activity Center in the (misguided) belief that we might actually use it for exercise.

So is it a clue?

My first thought was a wheel clamp, but that tyre doesn't look thick enough. It also doesn't fit anything that Mags said!

Sorry ren, it isn't a clue -- simply an observation. The clue was in Mags answer - fabric. I should have explained the word "it" as misplaced at the word was.

It is indeed, Tredici, a rotary cutter. Had bhs come in this thread, as a quilter, she would have identified it in a heartbeat, as did you. No felt, just a background.

I also quilt, and this is what I use to cut the fabric. The circular blade is sharp as a razor, so it is very important to get into the habit of closing it each time it is set down. I have a few scars to show -- I learned quickly to close it after every use.
