Orange & A Winner
Well, another color that is lacking in my stash. NO do not send me any!! The goal is to use up your scraps and I certainly will with these few orange scraps for this month's color. I went thru every tub, tote, pre-cut barrel just to find this little pile. And no, I do not have FQs or yardage of orange either, but I can make this pile do with the blocks I am working with.
The blocks I am making that need the largest pieces are the 'Sprout' blocks, so I worked these up first. HA, those pumpkins in the one square just crack me up! And melons and sunflowers and turtles (in the batik) - hey, it's orange.
The winner of the traveling stash box is Barb H of Stitch x Stitch and I will send her an e-mail for information to mail this box right on.
Signs of Spring: The birds are slowly returning and the feeders are full and noisy; the geese are gathering on the corn fields and ponds, resting up for their next leg of the journey home; the fur babies are shedding their winter coats; and the skunk was out last night!!
