I realize that trimming it at this point is probably not the brightest thing I can do (that's just me, though!).
I also realized that today's strip is a dark one and I need to write that it's my Puppy-butt's birthday! Oh, well, that's what white embroidery is for!
I've already figured out that it would be helpful to me to put the occasional number (date) on the strip. That will be helpful if I get behind (moi???) and for easier reference after the quilt's put together.
It wasn't intentional, but so far I'm working with mostly "winter" colors (wow, that just dated me). I don't know if I'll run with the concept of changing colors at the seasons... but it's something to consider.
Also, my first thought of treating each month as a single block may need to be re-thunk... these are going to be some pretty honkin' blocks, the way I'm going - this one's about 10x13"!
