Rainbow Scrap Challenge - The Final Six

It's raining for the third straight day.  However as the temps are now at 33 F, I'll take the rain and be thankful it's not ice.  We have no where we have to be today.  It's looking like a great day to stay home and stitch.  We had family here for Thanksgiving, so the house is actually pretty clean, though I still need to do some laundry.  The only downer for the holiday was the rain, every thing else went well.  Drama Teen showed how much she's learned from watching the Food Network.



She really helped a lot and it made getting it all on the table at the same time a lot easier.  

Most of last week was spent on cleaning up the house for company. But there was some stitching tossed in here and there.  I finished off all the red violet Twinkle Stars.

There's another quilt up on the design wall at the moment, so I've not had a chance to get all the Twinkle Stars out and play with them.  I know there was a miscalculation and I'll need to add a few more blocks before I can sew up the flimsy.  I want to check the light versus dark balance before I choose the colors for those last few blocks.  But even with that I should be on track to get this one mostly assembled by the end of December.  

Have you decided on your RSC project for  2016?  There are so many choices I'm having a hard time picking just one.  It's a good thing there is still a month left in 2015.

Now it's time for a second cup of coffee and a visit to Soscrappy to see how all the 2015 RSC projects are wrapping up.

  1. glad you do not have the ice - I'm in Arkansas and getting darn tired of this rain too - started Thanksgiving night and has accumulated to 3.5 inches and it just keeps coming down - thankfully today it shall be lighter and less of it - I'm getting out today to walk around the stores even though I don't have any shopping I want to do I just want to move around! I remember the days of "drama teen" and do not envy you!

  10. Well we had 33 last week but it was +33C and jolly hot. It really drains you when its that hot.
    Love the photo of Drama Queen. How lovely that she is enjoying kitchen activities, and a great help to you. The twinklers are gorgeous. It will be good to see how you lay them out.
