Scrappy Wednesday


I've pulled this project off the shelf - sitting for far too long.  Actually it's been over two years since I touched this.  I was hunting for more cheddar at the time and it got put aside - forgotten.  

Since the gals are coming back for our sewing days, this is a good project to work on as it is easy to pick up/lay down as help is needed or not needed.  I need to lay out all the 'tiles' and graph layout to see where I am at.  It is getting closer and that might be an even bigger push to complete this project.

I'll link up with PAT - her new stitching share link.  Why don't you join along.  And if her blog is new to you, take the time to browse.  She works with a lot of different fabrics, wonderful colors and patterns - and not afraid to play with her new long arm.

And after a long night of wind, snow, and sub-zero , this reminded me:

Monday Making


If you are new here, I find using BETH'S Monday Making a good way to start the 'week' off.  It gives me a base and pick up something in progress or to even start something new.  Be sure to visit the link up and even join in.

I want to move this project into the next step.  All the blocks are made - if you remember these were scraps from my daughter (and some ironically scraps I had originally given her - now smaller).  I plan getting this into a flimsy and push-push-push, get the borders on.  Maybe it will even get quilted this month, if the 'squirrels' stay away.

Sewingly Yours,

RSC21 - February Yellow


I decided to add another block to the 'rainbow' play.  I've done the Carolina Chain in Civil War fabrics so playing with a different mix with this easy block.  I have a tote full of muslin strips - cut offs from backings - that need using up and pulling my brighter colors.

And the next batch of miniatures for the guild President's Challenge.  The smaller blocks are copies of the members blocks - or variations of.  I got some yellows and pinks in this mix.  I really need to get some purple in the next group.

 This month's full moon is the Snow Moon - called thus as February is the snowiest month.  At it's fullest it will have Mars off to the right looking like there are two moons.  I'm not braving the cold to catch that at around 3am.  I just hope it doesnt attract more snow as I am so over Winter.
