It's no secret that I always have a lot of projects underway. I'm just not a straight-line kind of person, who makes a clear goal and then diligently works to accomplish it. It's a wonderful strategy for a lot of people, but I just can't do it.
So, here's a peek at my cutting table where I'm cutting 3.5" strips into useful bits.
The rectangles at upper left will be cut into background pieces for Glitter. The large triangles are for Storm at Sea. The squares at lower left are for Quilty 365 (which is currently bogged down and in hiatus, but that's no reason to stop cutting squares for it) and for my new Bonnie Hunter leader/ender hourglasses. You can see where I've stacked and marked some squares at lower center and have some completed blocks at lower right.
I'd been wanting to make hourglass blocks since I saw them on a couple
of other people's blogs, and then when Bonnie announced it as her
yearly leader/ender challenge, I was sooooo in.
You can see I've already started to accumulate a few as I work on these whole other blocks.
These star blocks are made with scraps of 2.5" strips that were left over from a couple of other projects. Because I'm all about the scrappy here.
Speaking of scrappy, a couple of these little guys turned up today.
Lately they've been hanging out down at the creek, trying to beat the heat. If it doesn't cool off soon, I may join them...
