I was happily cutting away pieces for my Stars and Sprigs one evening. When I'd finished doing that and while I had scissors in my hand, I thought I might as well cut up the pattern sheets that just happened to be hanging out in the same room. Then I thought, I might as well cut some freezer paper pieces for a block, just while I had scissors in my hand you understand. You can see where I'm heading, right?
Next day, I thought to myself, well I might just cut up a few pieces of fabric and see what they look like on my background. Maybe I could even prep blocks and bag them for later stitching pleasure. Just think how organised I'll be after Stars and Sprigs. At this stage, I'm not thinking about UFO's. It's a slippery slide but I'm still convincing myself that I haven't started it. I'm just prepping don't ya know.
I did post about my progress on the Stars and Sprigs over at Glorious Applique and I'm beavering away on border number two, even if those blinkers have slipped a little.
