Rainbow Scrap Challenge: Still Playing with Green

Why do short work weeks feel so much more hectic than a regular work week?  I was so glad to get to Friday afternoon this week, even though we'll have a busy weekend too.  We are waiting on a part for the washer, so I'll be hitting the laundromat this morning.  Drama Teen's friends from Florida have been here this week.  They fly home tomorrow, so that means an o'dark thirty (as they describe it) trip to the airport tomorrow morning.  

My stitching time this week has been a bit limited as we've actually cooked dinner most nights this week.  But I did manage to finish up all the large green fan blocks for May.




I'm still working on the 4 small fan blocks from last month.  But I'm hoping to get those done this weekend.  For June, the plan is to make 6 fan blocks plus 6 half fan blocks in yellow.  Not sure yet how I'm going to pull off the half fan blocks, but I've got some thoughts about how to construct those.  

That's it for me this week. Linking up with Soscrappy for this week's Rainbow Scrap Challenge and with Oh Scrap over at Quilting is More Fun than Housework
