Thanks so much for the encouragement about my row for the Row By Row Experience.  I'm feeling much better about everything.  Now I just have to prep kits - in other words, cut, Cut, CUT!!  I admit to feeling a bit intimidated when faced by this 30 yard pile of fabric (and that's only to make 50 kits!),

so I sewed instead.  First, I pieced the May block for the Westering Women BOM by Barbara Brackman, The Platte River.

Then, when I got home after an 11 hour day at work, I treated myself to an hour of sewing at home!  I have a slight addiction to making these blocks that our Guild is making for our Comfort Quilt effort.

I haven't really liked how they look together, though, so I started playing with alternate layouts.  Perhaps some interlocking wonky stars?

We'll see.  In the meantime, I have some cutting to do.

As they say 'eat the elephant one bite at a time'. Pick a color and cut all of those - a color or two a day and it will be done.

Cutting is my least favorite part, too. Sorry I'm not there to help you out. You'll get it done.

One step at a time. Break is down in small parts. So many strips from each color, and then what you need for a kit, and soon you will find a rhythm and will have kits made. Or don as first comenter said. Blessingst
