With the wonderful ice storm and then the snow Storm Niko - we haven't seen the last of this phenom yet. After all, a full moon (February's full moon is called the Snow Moon), lunar eclipse, and a comet all at once has to be an indicator. It is snowing again and will be for the next 3 days - good thing I had no plans other than staying to home!
I got a little more block play in before I have to shut down the machine and concentrate on a commission (cross stitch). Aqua is not a color found too easily in my scrap bins, but I found enough to complete my 4 piggy quota for the month for my RSC17 blocks.
Again, very little aqua to feed into these blocks. BUT its is about trying to use up scraps and I had added a lot of small green scraps into my barrel system from all of January's green projects. These blocks can be made with any 'math' - but in case you are wondering I used 1.5" squares for my 4-patches and 3'5" squares (cut once on the diagonal) for the corners. AND that size because those barrels are stuffed!
Then I realized I forgot to photo the blocks I was making with Moe's help the other day. Puss in the Corner (purrfect for sewing with the furkid) with those bits. I don't purposely cut 1.5" squares, I just hate to throw out and they can be worked into a cute block.
You all stay safe, stay warm, and keep on stitching,
