No Reason

I've been cutting, cutting and cutting some more.

No Reason

It is clearly time for a new blade. I certainly haven't run out of scraps.

I am cutting them into 5, 3 and 2.5 inch squares. No reason, no plan, it just seems to work out.

I've invented* something new.  AKA, I thought of something that cracked me up so I ran with it.  I will try to explain but it will not crack you up.  Probably.

Our guild is on the second round of a local bee.  It kicked off this month with a new member, Alison, who chose some nice blocks that intrigued me.  Also I was cutting 2 1/2 inch squares from my scraps and procrastinating anyway.

My invention stems from the fact that I'm not in the bee.  But I wanted to try the block anyway.  So I became a Bee Crasher.  It's just like a Wedding Crasher but with less cake.  Basically I made a block for her.  Then another one because it was cute.

I surprised her with them on Sunday and I hope she was happy to get blocks that she wasn't expecting.  

I may try it more often but I said the same thing about wedding crashing too and that hasn't panned out yet.  I did crash a wedding once, it was a small beautiful beach wedding on Kauai.  The reception was at an old plantation where all the guests were staying too.  The bride's family came over from Japan to celebrate and were excellent drinkers.  Everyone was friendly and delighted to meet an actual wedding crasher.  The next day I went zip lining which led eventually to me jumping off a mountain.  I imagine that these two little blocks will lead to great things as well.  


*Patent pending.  Unless my lawyer says I can't patent this due to the law.  Or if Kelley notices that she basically did the same thing for me but nicely and with a great picture included.  Thanks Macy!  I heart Apple and her cold dead eyes.
