WIPs - Moving Right Along

It's a bit soggy here at Life in Pieces, inside and out unfortunately.  The upstairs  air conditioner condensate drainage line backed up on Sunday and resulted in a small leak over my bathroom vanity.  At first glance I was afraid we'd lost shingles in the strong storms that passed through Saturday night.  Having gone through the nightmare of trying to get a roof fixed after the high winds last Labor Day weekend, a plugged drain line is a bit easier to get fixed. 

It seems the longer days have spurred my sewing mojo and my sewing machine no longer sits alone in the evenings.  Sometimes I don't get much more than 15 minutes to play, but even just 15 minutes of work every night can lead to a lot of progress.  I finished up all of the purple stars which were last month's goal for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge and have made a good start on this month's green ones.  Before the purple stars were stored with the previous blocks, I had to put them all back up on the design wall.

These blocks are quickly becoming one of my favorite projects.  I'm pretty sure I'm going to sash the blocks with corner stones.  But that won't be for a few more months after a few more colors are added.  

I'm running a bit late this morning, so I need to go get ready for work.  This week I'm linking up over at Esther's Quilts, Freshly Pieced and with My Quilt Infatuation.  There's a lot going on at those three blogs, check them out.
