RSC15 - Green
Although the colors look other than a nice green - they are. I love these Bitty Blocks - floating pinwheels. They don't take a lot of fabric (they are 4.5" unfinished) so they really aren't scrap eaters - but they work up really fast and are stinkin' cute.
And I worked the green HSTs out of the box - there were a lot of green and even though the official 'green' is the darker hues, I decided to just do them all up. There's 10 in each pile so 100 more HSTs have been added to that storage.
The bricks for the 'Now & Later' quilt. I am making 40 of each monthly color - I won't need that many in total, but it will give me a nice mix to play with and any extras will certainly be used elsewhere.
And I added a few more 9-patch blocks to the pile for my granddaughter's future 'big girl' quilt. I've decided on pattern, setting, and know how many I need. BUT, again I will make more than needed just for room to play.
Well, there's all my food storage containers! The lids are in the cabinet and I was trying to figure out where the bottoms were. I've neglected this project for far too long. Lots of 1.5" squares for a project that is a challenge. A challenge in that it is trying to read a photo copy of a very bad, old newsprint graph. But I worked out a quandrant, mirror image and reverse image that for a workable project sheet - oyi, it gives my a headache after a while which is why it has sat so long.
I've been less chatty - some home issues and also making sure I get some ME time. I met my daughter for a lovely lunch (she was in the area for a training class) and the weather has finally gotten nicer so there has been time outside cleaning flower beds. We lost a lot of things with this last winter and we are debating whether to replace or just move surviving plants to other beds and have less beds. We (SIL & I) are leaning toward the later.
Off to play with my little scraps,
