Saturday's Accomplishments

It's may not sound like much but we got all our cutting done on Saturday and an itty bitty bit of sewing :)  We had no idea how many hours it would take to cut the fabrics for twin quilts!!  All 567 of my pieces took 6 or 7 hours and then Annette's (816 pieces - all different widths and lengths) took another 5 - with both of us cutting at the end.  It was a great day despite having to lower our expectations.

Here are some pictures of the day:

 All my pieces cut - very satisfying!
Pretty salvages
 Annette's organization (good thing there were no little people around!)
 And the yummy coffee that kept us going :)


  1. Looks like fun. :) Did it feel strange to be all alone?

  2. Very pretty little piles! Have fun sewing them all up.

  3. So fun! I just couldn't believe how fast time flew by! And I have been to busy to sew even a single stitch :(
    Just HAVE to do it again sometime!

  4. Quilt progress so that means a great day...
    Hugs Dawn x x

  5. Kim - Someone else asked if I was nervous to leave the kids all day. Not at all! It didn't feel strange but wonderful - a true day off!
