Rainbow Scrap Challenge - A Little More Yellow

This weekend couldn't come soon enough.  It was pretty much a whirlwind week.  Last weekend we were busy judging science fair and setting up for Energy Days.  My Guy unfortunately spent the week fighting the same bug I had last week while he was also overseeing the 250 volunteers who performed the various Energy Day demonstrations for 970 fifth graders over the course of 3 days.  Most of my evenings this week were spent running errands and replenishing supplies for the next day's demonstrations.  This weekend the plan is to catch up on a few household chores, but not do much of anything else. We all need a break.  Hopefully that means I'll get to spend some quality time in my sewing room.   

I did get some time in the sewing room last night.  Yellow Twinkle Star block number 2 is now up on the design wall.

I'm really enjoying these blocks.  I hope to get a few more finished up this weekend. The sewing plan for the weekend also includes getting started on the setting blocks for the Scrappy Butterfly blocks which were finished up last week. 


Scrappy Butterflies, Block is available in EQ 7 Block Library


These are going to be set with alternating Irish Chain blocks.  Scrappy Butterflies was my Rainbow Scrap Challenge project for 2013.  It would be nice to get it to the finished flimsy stage this year. 

That's it for this week.  Unfortunately the piles of laundry have reached mountainous proportions due to my illness and the business of last week.  So that's first on my list today.  Hopefully I'll be able to steal a few minutes here and there to take a peek at all the other scrappy projects posted over at Soscrappy.

  5. Good luck getting caught up -- the stress of being behind is NOT fun. Happy stitching (when you get a chance).

  6. I'm eager to see how those butterflies look with the alternating blocks. Lovely twinkle stars. Are you making them 6 or 12 inches finished?
