A cutting hour

Tonight I cut for over 2 hours on my Star Struck. You can read a bit about it here and there.

For some silly reason my brain just can't grasp that I need an even amount of black and handdyes. I keep shorting myself on the black... even though I still have a bolt with 11 yards left. Hmm, while I'm thinking about it, I should cut off some more and wash it. I have another quilt that needs that black. :)

I didn't pin any of the tulip quilt... didn't even get the laundry baskets emptied! :P But hey, I did half of the dishes... there's still some homemade bread if you wanna do the other half. ;)

I know I'm feeling so sluggish because the heat is getting to me. I am also jealous when I hear about other people talking about pools closing, leaves colors changing, needing warmer PJs, turning off the A/C... ahh, blow some of that weather my way, will ya? ;)

What a beautiful quilt - and thanks for linking to the previous posts. I haven't used black before and it might be time!

Oh I LOVE your quilt Leah, gorgeous colours. I think I've just found another quilt to add to my endless to-do list!

It is a great, colorful quilt - and great that you haven't gotten bored and are still working on it - it is so big! I just love it when I have all the pieces all cut out for a project - waiting for me.

Cheers!

Sounds like you need to give yourself a break, a cool shower, and then come back for more cutting. Sometimes a little refresher goes a long way-and you deserve it!
