Today is my birthday : ) YIPPEE!! I like my birthday this year - next year, perhaps not so much. This year, I turned 39. I have no idea why the idea of 40 kinda freaks me out, but it does. I am full of great food, and ice cream cake, and almost ready to snuggle in for the night with a good book!
I actually did not sew today ... I was a cutting and crocheting fool.
I cut out all the squares for Cara's quilt a long from these:
and from these:
I now have 42 squares .. one step closer to starting to sew. I still need to cut the lattice strips and the background.
I have to tell you, I had a hard time when I thought about cutting them. I have been collecting (or rather hoarding), and these are some of my most sacred beauties. But we buy fabric to use it right?? I am still telling myself this over and over. It was a little liberating to cut into it. AND I still have tons left, so I will have more to use for lots more projects.
I will tell you more about the crocheting another day : )
Have a great night!
