... is what I'm up to. I've grabbed my cutting mat, my rotary cutter and my ruler with its little gripper spotty thingies underneath and am squaring away. Naturally, my heart bleeds at having to discard the cut-offs, but really, there is no point in saving 5 mm slim scraps, is there?
Now, I'm debating additional fabrics for the backing and the edge. I'm probably going to go with some small dotty fabric, irregular tiny flowers or something, plus checkers for the backing but in pastels please. That'll be fun to find.
I had hoped to swing by our local fabric retailer but my boss threw me a curb ball by setting up an appointment in the office. I had planned on working frmo home and running some errands ... but ey, at least I got my contract extended. So it was worth it.
