A Clean Table..

Now that my dining room table is cleared off and all the minis mailed yesterday... it leaves me with a clean slate. I do have 2-3 projects to work on before Christmas but today I wasn't ready to pull it all out.

I just wanted something fast and fun... something to do in about an hour while the babies napped before going to pick up Nora from preschool... ta-da! Here are 9 shirts cut up and folded.. and another 3 cut up but not folded and shown in the photo..

and how about this for a book holder-uper? ;) Of course make sure the iron is OFF!
and since Bonnie Hunter of Quiltville's book Scraps & Shirttails is about Quilting "Green" - look at my greens.... ;) This morning they enjoyed watching Sesame Street in the den. Olivia is the one with big sister Nora's shoes on her hands ;) Paul Thomas closest to the TV - always ready to turn it off and make sister mad :P
I do have plans for these cut up shirts - Even involves a SWAPPING Plans -but no plans to begin until 2009... after my FQ Bingo...and after the Potluck/makeup mini swap.
But for today, it was fun to spend some time cutting them up. I don't know why it took me so long to discover that using the rotary cutter goes so much faster than scissors! :P

Love from Texas!
