Rainbow Scrap Challenge - Ready to Banish Browns

My weekend started yesterday.  After finishing up the 6th and final report on this year's big project, I celebrated by giving myself a 4 day weekend.  My Guy decided to take a day off yesterday as well, which hadn't been part of my plans.  But it worked out pretty well, he dealt with the heating and air guy who came to do the furnace check while I got to sew.  Then he went for a long bike ride in the afternoon, so I still got to spend a lot of time in the sewing room.  Both of us have vacation that we have to use or we loose it.  So at some point I'd have had to taken these two days off, but it was certainly added incentive to get the last report done.  I hated writing research papers when I was in high school.  I'm not any fonder of them now.  

I didn't spend the whole day sewing.  The morning was spent doing some much needed sewing room maintenance.  Plus I started the prep work for three of the four graduation quilts that have been requested for 2017.  I'm slow enough that I need to start that now.  The afternoon was spent at the sewing machine and I have four more Twinkle Stars to show for it.

And that finishes the six planned for October. So now I'm ready to banish the browns and move on to this month's color.  I made all my green stars back in May, so I decided to use red-violet as my rainbow scrap challenge color for November.  I've got a start on three of those, but no pictures as yet.  But I have Monday off as well, so I should make a lot of progress on those.  

Linking up with Soscrappy, then I'm grabbing my second cup of coffee and will spend some time trying to catch up with blog reading before tackling a few household chores.

  2. More beautiful Twinkle Stars! I can't decide which one is my favorite--either the blue and brown or the one with the plaid. Great job!

  7. I love the tartan star, (bottom left) it's so fresh and homely after October's diet of dark chocolate. It reminds me of cinnamon buns! This is going to be a wonderful quilt!
