I cut. (You need pieces cut before you can sew. If you know another way, tell me. Grin.)
I'm slow, since I haven't done much rotary cutting before. This is still a fairly new process for me. And I love it.
When the fabric is cut it takes on a different look. I was trying to think how to describe it. Well... it's like a photo that's been cropped.
The change surprised me. And delighted me. I didn't expect it. I've never heard anyone mention it before.
I probably only cut about a quarter of the strips that I needed yesterday and continued today. I had a light fabric picked out, but I'm not settled on it yet. I need to decide soon because I want to get to the sewing part.
It's really neat seeing all these little pieces lining up. Waiting for the party to begin.
I've also been making progress on prepping my applique pieces for the next two CWBQ blocks.
Oh! I was so excited today because I received my first gift from blogging! Crispy offered to send me a few needles to try and I've been watching the mail for the last couple days. When I opened the package I was so surprised to see that she sent me a fat quarter of this gorgeous fabric too! Thank you Crispy!!! It's so pretty. And I can't wait to try the needles.
One last thing... I'll share something that made me laugh the other day. On the wrapper on a feminine hygiene product it had words. It said Never Give Up. Then I looked at another and it said Enjoy Life! (complete with the exclamation point). What marketing genius decided this product needed motivational phrases? Funny.
