This is the face after her first scrambled egg. She thought it was wonderful. She fed herself. 8 1/2 months old and knows she rules the house.
Last night I decided there was no reason why I couldn't be a cutup while TV was on. I have this portable adjustable table I bought for $30 from Menards. I normally keep it beside the sewing cabinet for the pressing board and iron and a small trimming mat. I readjusted it and brought it out to my chair in the living room with a stack of smaller scraps from a laundry basket from the sewing room. I cut for 2 hours last night and an hour this morning.
A 2.5 inch strip then can be cut into 1 inch and 1.5 inch strips for string piecing or courthouse steps, log cabin blocks, or small 9 patches or 4 patches.
Here are the 1.5 strips. Just think of using all the small stuff for utility quilts or charity quilts. Hey you paid for it why not use it.
a 1 inch strip and a 2.5 inch square. Not much waste then. I did get to watch the shows I wanted. This morning I need to move the table back in the sewing room, but it is light weight and easy to move again when I need it.
This is getting fuller and when I want to make a split 9 patch or disappearing 9 patch the pieces are cut. There is plenty more to cut and it will be ready when I need to be distracted and do easy sewing. Chris
