Monday Making


The RSC18 color for April is yellow and golds.  My yellows are a little bland at the most part, but that tote does need to be tamed.  A blurry photo because I had a furkid rubbing my arm for attention and then ran off when I tried to take her photo.


There were a lot of 'bits' in the tote that I could quickly use for a new pineapple.  The w/w was on the table as left overs from some other block making and the greens came straight out of the string tote.  The dotty print  (folded several times) I am thinking will work for the border, but with a green flange and finish up with a green binding.  This is such a quick project  and the pattern can be found HERE.


I had a good laugh when I realized that the slip I pulled for the block to make this month was 'Puss in the Window' - it should have been 'Puss in the Corner'.  I have a slip in the cup for Bonnie Hunters' 'Moth in the Window' block and must have written one after the other and had a senior moment.  I have 1.5 yrds of a bright w/w that needs using up and will be enough for these blocks.  Where this project goes after that will wait for inspiration - now to chain these babies thru the machine.

The sun is shining today!!  Happy Yellow!!
Sewingly Yours,

  1. Glad the sun is shining for you, it is very slow this year to make an appearance for very long. Love the yellow and can't wait to see it finished. At least it is a happy colour even if the weather isn't. Hugs, Susie xx

  6. The pineapple block is very cute, I love the top of it, that's different from many of the pineapple patterns I have seen. Happy stitching this week. Looks like you've got a good start on using up those yellows.
