Cutting Catharsis

I haven't been doing much sewing, but I have been cutting up a storm, and organizing a wee bit.



I showed my bin of tumblers in my previous post.  Now it is easy to grab a pair and sew for a leader and ender, but as you can see it was getting very chaotic and a hard to keep contained at times.  Also they were getting wadded up and difficult to sew because of getting all wrinkled.
I have been cutting for several days and after piling them nicely I only have about 1/3 of a bin full.

I also organized my 2 1/2 inch strips. 
I still have my 2 inch strips to organize, but I think I have had my fill of organizing for a while.  I have been cutting pieces for my twisted blossoms block  for February, and the bazillion pieces for step 4 of the Allietare.

I haven't even began to sew step 4 yet.  I have a ton of 2 inch black squares to cut, and a bunch more red sets.  While there is a lot more cutting to do, I have found it very cathartic,and calming and am looking forward to having it all ready to start sewing for this step.

Piling them nicely, eh? I guess I should make more of an effort on that, my scraps look more like the before photo once I dig through them looking for the "perfect color".
