Boo's Feast...
This is Rebekah. Most people call her Boo. Sometimes, Bek. Sarah's DS, Ian, started calling her Rebekah-boo. Then it was Bekah-boo. And finally it was just Boo. She says, "My church name is Rebekah Jehosheba. My home name is Bekah-boo." She's 4.
She had her feast and did a lovely job. Her appetizer was those frozen french toast sticks- dipped in strawberry preserves that had been warmed up. She had a nice salad and chicken soup- "with those twisty noodles." She made crescent rolls with some help from the Pillsbury dough boy. She was quite handy at rolling all 64 of them up! She had strawberry poke cake for dessert and gave all the children three little strawberry candies. Notice a trend? She loves strawberries. I take each of the children out to lunch the day before, or the day of, their feast and then we go grocery shopping, together. She ate at the Chinese restaurant and wanted brocoli after her icecream dessert. I know she ate her weight in the green stuff. Every mother's dream- a child who will eat her vegetables!
My Basket of 2" strips...
You know, I'm still not sure where everyone else gets their tubs of 2" strips. I had to make mine. Anyone feel up to filling me in? Bonnie's quilt patterns so often call for hauling out the tub of 2" strips... I get to looking around my quilting room, thinking mine must have wandered off or something. At anyrate, I picked out some scraps from my stash- aren't you proud, Judy- and cut a basket of 2"strips. I feel part of the co-hesive whole. I must be a real quilter, now. I am working on a pineapple blossom- love how everyone else's is turning out. I am getting close to having 46 blocks made- with all the little bonus triangle blocks- and wow, now I can see the fun of having a bunch of those 2" strips. But where do they come from???

I showed Ian the picture of Bekah and asked who it was. He said "Bekah-Boo"!

Miss you!

Love, Sarah

Hi Nina, I'm chuckling about the 2" strips..LOL..you know they just magically appear in the bin marked 2"...right??? *VBG*

Actually I think Bonnie "tells all" over under her section on creating order as she knows it.
Also I think she is given quite a few scraps, plus trimmings from backings, etc. She cuts them into what ever size they will yield..some might make 2.5" but if not, then 2" or 1.5", etc.

That's what I do also, but I don't cut "bricks" as she does, just strips and squares.

It IS fun to have them there all ready to play with..High Five for joining in the PA/B parade..*S*

That's so cool! We also have a Rebecca and we call her Becca-Boo and sometimes Boo-Boo.

I went through a long phase after I started quilting where I bought new fabric, washed and ironed it, then cut one each 2.5" 2" and 1.5" strips. Had a rack of them for a long time, but have to admit I rarely used them... For some reason I like to play with the whole fabric, then cut strips for whatever I'm working on...

I admit...I cut my 2" strips too. I had some bits and pieces of fabric that I cut, but to make my log cabin I had to cut the right color strips. I've got tons of them now. I love the look of your bright strips, mine are all dull Thimbleberries type fabrics! Merry Christmas!
