I cut 189 squares of batting today. Let's hear it for the humble rotary cutter!

Tomorrow I am going to be volunteering at an all-day fifth grade event at Laurel's school. Don't know a blessed one of the kids, save any I ran into at Cub Camp over the summer and I wouldn't recognize any of them on sight. Hopefully not all of the kids will be taller than me.

Today I learned that cutting out nearly 200 squares of batting is extremely tedious. If Vogon hadn't impulsively bought a cutter & ruler combo (a quilting ruler with a rail-mounted rotary cutter) awhile back, it would have taken a lot longer than 2 1/2 hours to slice up not quite two complete twin-size batts of cotton batting. The Law & Order: CI marathon made it much more bearable. Hopefully tomorrow will be as pleasantly surprising.
