cutting, cutting, cutting.......

For the last 2 weeks I have spent a little time every day cutting kits for an upcoming colorwash class.  I offered kits to my students and they all said yes.  I am cutting for myself too as I always need new variety added into the the many trays of squares that are already cut.  I have cut over 6000 batik 2.5" squares.  If you are picturing me cutting them one at a time, stop!  I cut 3 strips from 4 fabrics at a time (8 layers) and cut 2 of the strips into squares and 1 for reserve to cut later into rectangles and squares.  There are 234 strips in this photo.  Now I am cutting African fabrics for another student and for myself. 
Today I'm taking a day off and going out with the girls!

Good Greif that is a lot of squares! Even if you cut 8 layers at a time, that is a heck of a job! After all that cutting you deserve to have a day off and have some fun!

What ? You have not found the invisible foot yet ? I just know how frustrated it is to be looking for something that is so important. I am still looking for a favorite pair of scissors that I have misplaced years ago.

Loved your post yesterday, those are reality photo's of a creative person's work area.

Enjoy your day with your friends.

My hands are itching to touch and sew with all your beautiful strips. Too bad you did not find your flying foot.
