I've gotten some time in the sewing room most nights this week, though you certainly can't tell that by what's up on the design wall. I'm still playing catch up on my Rainbow Scrap Challenge blocks. Just one completed purple Twinkle Star to show for my efforts this week.

I still have one purple star left to cut out, but the other 4 are in various stages of assembly. So no green stars as yet, but I have selected the fabrics for them.
In spite of all my fabric purchases over the last few years, my green stash is still pretty limited. I was able to pull enough to make this month's set of 6 blocks. At some point I'll need to beef up this part of my stash, but for now I'm planning to stick to my fabric diet.
This is the first project where I've gone first to my scrap strips to find the fabrics for the blocks. I did a lot of cutting and sorting of my scraps last year and it's paying off this year. I really need to get back in the habit of cutting a few strips, it does pay off when you are making scrappy blocks.
That's it for me this week. I'm seriously contemplating taking a solo retreat day tomorrow. Drama Teen is having a sleep over tonight, so there will be no doing house work in the morning. May as well sew right?
I'm liking up with Angela over at Soscrappy. Next on the agenda is my second cup of copy and some blog hopping to see what everyone is up too.
