I am doing a pattern called Chess Mixx from an Atkinson book. It is a 9patch star and has lots of little peices. 32 little squares, 8 bigger squares, and 8 rectangles for each color. I am making a queen size so it is taking a few days to cut.
Now I get interupted A LOT! My hubby, the kid, and the little cat Boo is always into something. With all this I tend to lose my train of thought soooo I took a peice of painters tape and wrote my sizes and quantity of cuts for each color. Then I simply stuck it to the corner of my cutting board.
Has already saved me a few boo boo's because of Boo! LOL
I make my cuts in the same order every time and when I come back, all I do is see what size is the last one cut and start right where i was.
