Mama Cuts Fabric (and cuts and cuts)

Gramma and Papa took the Co-Defendants camping at the lake overnight, so I spent all day Saturday cutting out fabric for Seth’s repro-airplane quilt.  It took longer than I thought, mostly because it’s hard as heck to cut correctly (and not decapitate a fingertip) while watching a Nora Roberts movie marathon on Lifetime.  But I’m a girl, which means I’ve got a superpower ability known as multi-tasking. 

I started with this stack, and no, I didn’t cut it all up but I came pretty close to it…

By early Sunday morning, it looked like this…

Yes, the fabric’s in nice tidy stacks in individually labelled baggies.  That’s not anal, it’s orderly.  Don’t be jealous ’cause that just makes you ugly.

I tried with all my might to get him to consent to a larger block size which would’ve made this project go so much faster, but oh no, he insisted on everything being the same as when Gramma made the original.  Drat that woman (love you Mom)!  I will be sewing from now until retirement…go on, admit it, you think I’m joking.

That’s one block down…55 to go.

(Bangs head on desk) Lennie the Featherweight is now threatening a boycott and I just got flipped off by both my hands.  Wish me luck.
