Sure glad it is Friday

What I week I have had at work. I spent all day yesterday pounding on the computer moving documents around to the architect and contractors. By the end of the day I was having a hard time remaining focused. Two days of not using the computer will be nice! Meanwhile, I did get more strips cut into block units.
My goal for the weekend is to get all the strips that need sewn
sewn together and cut into block units, get the pile of strips that have the plaid on the outside altered. I will ripped some of the units apart and resort the solids and plaids so I can make more blocks.
I tried out both of my seam rippers and neither one is sharp enough to easily cut thru the stitches. I had to push kind of hard which lead to a bit of stretching which I don't want to happen. I will stop after work and get a new seam ripper and do few errands so once I get home I don't have to leave the house the rest of the weekend. After all of that stitching, cutting, and, sorting, I will see what strips of flannel I have left and see if the plan I have in my head will work for the odds and ends. The only other item on my agenda for the weekend is to mow. The backyard needs mowed badly; the front and sides will just need to be tidied up. We have gotten quite a bit of rain this week so with the sunshine today I am sure the grass will be growing like crazy. Have a great weekend!

Knowing how hard it is to rip in flannel fabric, I would take the easy way out and find some other use for those strips, like blocks of 3 strips instead of 9 patches.

The flannels look interesting. I know you will make something wonderful. I forget that seam rippers get dull. No way to sharpen them either.

I was off the computer almost all of last week and it was really hard to open it again today!
