Cutting strips......

Yesterday started out with a visit from a blogging friend who comes through my area a couple times a year.  She is the new owner of the African crooked cobblestones wallhanging so I didn't have to mail it. 
Later in the day I started cutting my Kaffe scraps from this box into strips for log cabin blocks.
I'm hoping to reduce the scraps in the box to half, but we all know what happens, they multiply somehow as we are digging through the box.
I'm trying to use up all of the left over precut batik strips from the last 3 log cabin quilts.  They work well with the Kaffe fabrics.  While I was cutting and sewing I watched 2 movies with my new Netflix set up.  I saw "The King's Speech" and "Billy Elliot".  I enjoyed both of them but the music in the second one was so loud compared to the talking so I had to keep adjusting the sound through it.  I got a lot of good suggestions of other things to watch from my readers yesterday.
I'm glad the second Amaryllis flower stalk got taller than the first one so the flowers won't bump into each other.

Wanda, You need some noise cancelling ear buds or ear phones. They cancel out background music and let you hear the words. Many people use these at the movies . I need to get some , myself.

Enjoy your netflix !

Great scraps :) Beautiful KF log cabin blocks. Your photographs inspire me to dig into my scraps and stash and make some strip blocks.

I enjoyed The King's Speech - but I have the same issue with Billy Elliot and have never gotten very far into it.

I will have to go look at your other readers recommendations from yesterday.

I loved Mrs. Henderson Presents and The Last of the Blonde Bombshells. Both star Dame Judi Dench.

Congratulations on your netflix, I've never tried it but I hear great things. I like the batik and Kaffe combo, and we all know scraps feed off the air. Once you start stirring and fluffing, that's it - multiplication!

You always have the best projects started. Have fun on this Christmas Eve.

Wishing you a very Merry Christmas and an exceptionally healthy new year.

Of course your scraps are 'exuberant' from all of your wonderful quilts. Your fabrics are always so much fun for me, just to look at.

Amaryllis blossoms are just stunning.

Merry Christmas, Wanda. Thank you for another year of photos of beautiful works in progress and completed projects! Yes, I think you might be a geek now, but I'll never tell. :-)

It is good to have friends drop by and not to have to mail a package. She is a lucky friend to receive that beauty.

Merry Christmas. I posted my Christmas quilt on my blog, Yellow Mound Quilts http://yellowmoundquilt.blogspot.com/

Those blocks are pretty already, but then the scrap bins are pretty, too. LOL Have fun watching with your new toy! And Merry Christmas, it's almost here.
