My Yesterday

Suffice to say most quilters will recognize this pile of fabrics pretty quickly as strip sets and that is exactly what this is. 

Yesterday, all my family went to Seattle for the oldest grands birthday celebration to a water park and I stayed home with the dog. Seems like I made the right decision because the only portion of the park open was the rides and I can't do the rides!  They all had a great time and stayed all day.

I turned that unruly pile of scraps into this:
A very large but nicely pressed pile of strips that I then took to my cutting table and you guessed it, began cutting these into 4.5" blocks. 

Sadly, my hands, arms and body began to give out, so I didn't finish all of them and probably won't even finish them all today, but I wanted you to know, that I am still here and still quilting when family things and time allows!

That is so nice you got to spend time alone. Hope your health improves and you can get more quilting done. Hugs
