Rainbow Scrap Challenge: Playing in Orange

Sewing time has been at a premium this week, I've gotten to the point where work's been coming home more evenings than not.  So there's not been a lot of stitching time.  That makes it hard to make much progress on this year's Rainbow Scrap Challenge project.  I'm still working on the blue blocks from July.  But I did find time one night this week to pull out all the oranges and decide on the pairings for the 16 small fan blocks. 



These are going to be bright blocks.  Not sure when I'll be able to make a start on them, it may not be till October at the rate I'm moving.  The Scientist in Training decided to come home for the a bit.  She has to head back before lunch on Sunday, but we'll get to hang out for a bit today.  My Guy is going riding, but I think the plan is for the SIT and I to go get breakfast at the local coffee shop, hang out there for a while this morning and study/work.  The annual company picnic is this afternoon, so I doubt much stitching happens in my sewing room today.   

Happy stitching this weekend.  There's more bright and fun stuff over at Soscrappy.  And linking up with Oh Scrap on Sunday.
