Yesterday was a very wet and windy day here so I spent most of the day cutting these 5 1/2 " charm squares. I think their are 83!
I also cut some more up into 44" X 1 1/2 strips. There are about 32 of them and yes the palm of my hand is now a little tender from overuse of the rotary cutter. Now if you are wondering what I'm going to do with all these strips and squares I will show you at the end of the week.
Tommorrow I'm looking forward to some uninterrupted sewing time as our girls return to school. They are both a little anxious about going back to school this year. Amelia starts High School and Caitlin moves up to the senior class at her school. For me the best thing about the start of a new school year was getting all the new stationery. I still love going into stationery shops and for people like me this company has recently opened a chain of shops in NZ.
Now on a competely different subject, I seem to be having a bit of an ant problem in my kitchen. They are of the tiny brown ant variety and I just get rid of them from one spot and they appear somewhere else. Today there was a trail of them winding their way up to the top shelf of my pantry. I couldn't find what they were after but I now have a nice clean pantry although I would have rather been sewing. Any hints and tips would be most welcome!
