I'm off to a good start on this month's UFO already!
I dug through my stash to find fabrics that would work...washed those that needed it.
I had more than I thought.
And those skinny logs - there's little waste!
I cut and cut and cut.
Then I slept.
I got up this morning (it was my day off) and cut some more!
Reds are done (with a few golds cut while some fabrics were in the washer).
Yay I had enough reds with just my fabrics!
(Red on the edge is binding - yep, already!)
On to cutting gold. The rest of it.
Uh oh...I'm out of gold and only have about half of the pieces cut!
Quick, call mom! She's got a great stash and loves to share.
(I also donate my scraps that are too small for me to her stash - she loves a teensy-pieced scrap quilt!)
What a mess!
I should wash these, too, right?
Oh my, what have I done?
I think they grew or multiplied or something.
Good thing I have a new, fantastic iron!
Iron, cut, iron, cut, iron, cut.
(My feet hurt!)
Woohoo! All the pieces cut!
(Let's hope I counted correctly!)
Doesn't look like I used much of my mom's fabric does it? But they're all nice and fluffy - once they get smooshed back in her storage boxes, they'll flatten out a bunch.
(But I couldn't exactly return them to her in the state you saw above now could I? I mean, I was the one who decided they needed to be washed!)
Now it's late.
I have to work tomorrow.
Know what I want to do?
Yep, make log cabin blocks!
But those pieces will be there tomorrow when I get home from work.
I'm planning dinner in the crock pot (if it goes well, I'll tell you about the recipe) and the hubby got his game system back from the repair shop, so I can sew tomorrow evening - guilt-free.
Here's to hoping those directions I followed to cut about 4 bazillion pieces are correct!
(Emma, the fierce mouser.)
PS for Liri and Flit: It's ON! (tee hee hee)
