Rainbow Scrap Challenge - Sewing Sunshine

I'm not sure where this last week went.  I didn't spend a lot of time in the sewing room, though I did spend a fair amount of time on the computer playing with layouts in Electric Quilt.  Though I did manage to finish up 2 of the yellow Rainbow Scrap Challenge Sampler blocks.

I love sewing with yellow, it's like stitching sunshine.   The first few parts of this month's Inverted Star made it to the design as well.

The scrappy version of this block needs 16 different fabrics.  When I cut the fabrics for the RSCS blocks, I also cut either a 3"square or a 2.5" square to use in that month's Inverted Star block. It's just more efficient that way.  

I'm taking a mini vacation from household chores this morning. My batteries are low, with My Guy traveling so much I've been doing double duty in a few areas.  He suggested I just take some "me time" this morning and recharge just a bit.  Sounded good to me.  Drama Teen has a volleyball clinic this morning, so I'll have to run her to that in just a bit.  But then I'll be free to come home and stitch for the rest of the morning.

  1. Sometimes the week just gets away from you. You realize that you're missing something but just don't have the time to get to it. Glad to hear you'll have time this morning. Great work on the yellow so far.

  2. Bright, happy, summery blocks! Enjoy your me time.

  3. Enjoy your free time today. Your blocks are looking good.

  4. LOVE the bright yellows!!! Makes it a happy day ;-)

  5. Everyone needs a chance to recharge from time to time. Glad you are finding some time to sew.

  6. I hope your break is relaxing. I always have trouble taking a break from chores because they just seem to glare!

  7. Great yellow blocks! Me time is important, I am sure you are enjoying every minute of it. My husband used to travel a lot when the kids were young so I know where your coming from.

  8. Stitching Sunshine... I love it! And it shows in your pretty blocks.

  9. Lovely, cheerful blocks. Well done.

  10. good advice~!
    nothing better to recharge one's energy than a little me time. i hope that it went well.
    love your sunny yellow blocks~!!


  11. Enjoy your break. Love your yellow blocks. Probably won't do mine until next month.

  12. Great looking yellow blocks. Still laughing about Drama teen, the name you have given her. My oldest boy just started to take a girl out on dates. So far no Drama. My second one is full of drama sometimes.

  13. The yellow DOES look like sunshine!

    Enjoy your me time(make sure you squish some sewing in there and try to extend this mini break so it lasts the rest of the weekend!)

  14. Looking good. Enjoy your break, dear.
