Here are the 2 blocks I finished for Cyndi this month. Lining up the strips with each cut was a bit gnarly. I don't do a lot of improv, so this was a bit of a stretch for me, but it came together pretty quickly. Sam was watching me at one point and about had a cow when she saw me slice with my rotary cutter and no ruler =)
Cyndi asked us where we would want to live if we could move anywhere and why? A few years ago I would have said southern Italy with barely a pause, but I know I'd be the only one in my family who'd really enjoy that. Then I thought I'd go "home" to the DC area, but I realized I seriously don't like the traffic or cost of living, so I'd just really like to go back and visit. I think I'd like to move somewhere closer to family--and since I have family spread all over the US, that is still totally open-ended and vague. Ultimately, I think I'd be happy anywhere I have cell phone reception, internet access and my sewing machine.
Also, Marti drew #1 for the UFO Challenge this month. I've got nine blocks to make from thse fabrics. I think I'll do some strip piecing for all the little 4-patch units (45 of 'em) and take it from there.
