I spent the whole afternoon yesterday cutting up fabric for a quilt class I signed up for. It is a very scrappy Buggy Barn design from their book Certifiably Crazy. The name of the book says it all. We really are, aren't we? I searched through several boxes looking for the right combination of light backgrounds of appropriate size, scale and value. Cut-cut-cut, stack-stack-stack. 16 of this pile,12 of that pile, etc. By dinner time it was all I could do to drag myself to the kitchen and cook something. Fortunately I had some chicken breasts thawed and I wrapped them in foil with potatoes, carrots, onions and Lowry's seaonings and put them on the grill. Then I sat down! My husband said the chicken really tasted good. This is a meal I rely on a lot during the summer season. Now this afternoon I need to find all the dark fabrics for the quilt. Yesterday I mostly cut lights! I don't usually cut the whole quilt at once, but for their techniques you must. It is exhausting! No chance to sit and stitch a bit in the process. (Patti, don't lust after my sewing room. I know you want to clean it!)
