Cutting squares

If you are in any way crafty, then you know that with every new skill comes a stash of extra supplies that you just couldn’t resist buying/collecting/saving. So it is with fabric for me. About a year ago I decided to teach myself to sew. Now I find myself with three boxes of unused fabric.

It’s a little excessive.

So I’m going to make something out of it. My plan is to make napkins out of the big pieces (goodbye paper towels!), to cut squares for a patchwork quilt out of the rest, and strips from the remnants to braid into a rope rug.

It’s a great project, because it gives me something to do while watching The A Team, but all this cutting is starting to make my hand hurt!
