The end of a treat..........

All I have to show for my day yesterday is the last 4 toffee bars.  I baked 2 desserts to take both places I went yesterday.  I started out at the twice monthly sew in and helped someone with the directions on a pattern.  Then I went to a sister in law gathering and also saw my niece from California.  It was a relaxing social day.   Last night I sorted kits and then spent time on the computer contacting a bunch of people who wanted a kit.  I'm at the end of the fabric with just 4 more kits to cut today.  When I finish them I will have cut 89.25 yards of colorwash type fabric into kits.  That leaves me with 2 empty blanket boxes under the pool table.

That is a heap of cutting. The good thing is it is going to a good cause to learn the joy of color. Chris

I am sure those blanket boxes are filling as I write this. In my experience, the fabric stash is stored under pressure (as we squeeze in more and more). So getting rid of fabric is just a pretense: the remaining fabric, with a sigh of relief, immediately expands and fills the space!!!!

That is a lot of fabric to cut up for kits. You definitely deserved a "day off"

Wow that is a lot of fabric cutting. Hope it feels good to be sending it out into the world. I know my little bit of the world can't wait. Enjoy those last few desserts, they look good!

Toffee bars? I'm on my way NOW!

Glad you had a good social day out . . .

Sending out fabric is like planting good seed.

I am constantly amazed at how much fabric you have! It seems like you cut and cut and sew and sew and you STILL have a boatload of fabric. Now the real question is....how long do those 2 blanket boxes stay empty???

Those bars look delicious!!! It sounds like it was a relaxing and enjoyable day for you. Now....back to your regularily scheduled and awesome creativity. ;-)

You needed a social day. I can't imagine cutting that much fabric. Looking forward to my share of it. Thank you for for the offer. Alice

Yay for empty boxes! I've just emptied 6 smallish boxes of inherited fabric from the 80s and 90s that I've never used - will offer them to my older quilt group. NOW what will I put in them - looks like I'll have to go shopping!

Hurrah! That's quite a lot of cutting and colating. The treats look mighty good, too!

My hat is off to you - that is one huge chunk of cutting. But I'll bet it feels great to have those two bins empty (and ready to fill again... :) ). Good thing you have the odd sugar hit to keep your energy level up!

That's a lot of cutting! Have you got the strength to post the recipe for that yummy looking dessert? Just to see if I can get the ingredients or similar here in Venezuela?

I bet that will feel great when the fabric gets shipped out!! I really liked your colorwash quilt top when it was on your design wall. They have their own design challenges---but you can really have fun playing with the arrangement. Another quilt top assembled by you---you are very inspiring.
