Rainbow Scrap Challenge - Need a Little Sunshine

It's been a rough week.  I've been sidelined all week by a pretty potent respiratory virus.  The one attempt at going back to work was cut short by the resurgence of a fever.  So most of the week was spent in the recliner with a box of tissues.  I'm not 100% yet, but am definitely improved from where I was Thursday night.  

Not a lot of stitching this week, I felt too crappy to even attempt to sew until late Friday afternoon.  My only adventures with scraps is the start and finish of the first yellow Twinkle Star.


Twinkle Stars, Tutorial by Andrea Feldbush of Soscrappy


Purple and yellow has long been one of my most favorite color combinations.  I love how this star turned out.  

It will be a busy weekend with the rescheduled Science Fair and preparations for Energy Week (a program My Guy organizes for the 5th graders in the county to come and learn about the petroleum industry).  Drama Teen and I get drafted for set up and take down.  I'll also spend a day next week as a volunteer doing demonstrations for the kids.  Not sure I'll get a lot stitching done this weekend with all the activities on the schedule.  

That's pretty much it for me this week.  There's more scrappy fun over at Soscrappy.
