She is followed shortly by Jennifer who sets me straight in the coffee making category. She has arrived with pumpkin bread in hand and along with Candy's gingersnaps, we are ready to go. With coffee and bread, let the work begin. The conversation is fantastic and once again time is spent mostly cutting and marking. Do you see the two small totes on the table in the picture above? Those are my strips in the size I need today. I am able to pull out a wonderful variety of blacks and neutrals and a few greens. I will only have to cut green strips today. Wow. I LOVE this system. I get all my strips cut and it is time for lunch.
All right -- let's sew some strips together, shall we?
Sadly, Candy has to leave but happily, Janet arrives and our trio is complete again. I so love this opportunity to get to know others in a smaller group setting. It's sad to see Jennifer leave, but Janet and I get a grand chance to visit and get to know each other better. My strip sets are coming together nice. I am a lovin' this color combo. Oh yummy. Now to turn those doubles into quads and then put them face to face to cut the substrips. Do they come out the right size? Yeppers. Woohoo. Time to cut.
Look at all these little piles of green and white fun. There are 141 of the little buggers. Tomorrow I sew!
I want this clue behind me and quick. First thing in the morning I am up and stitching away. In less than 2 hours, I have my completed units. Very fun! Some chain pressing and snipping and they stack up quick. Now -- to move onto Christmas gifts again. This is behind me until next Friday. I love my tray of happiness.
MY (I am wording it this way because I always make extra units for fun in the back and for variety) piece count thus far: 2,376 plus 880 in my bonus HST's. Cool.
