Rainbow Scrap Challenge: A Spot of Sunshine

Even with another day off, it seems like weekends go way to fast.  We took yesterday off to run a few errands, in particular to renew our drivers license.  Somewhere in the chaos of extra work stuff and around the house stuff, we completely forgot that's one reason we took off.  Thankfully, I remembered right a 4 PM, so rather than a coffee date we ended up standing in line at the tag agency.  Whew, at least that's done and we don't have to worry about it for 4 years. 

There was a bit of sewing interspersed with all the errands.  I finished one of this month's yellow/gold Squared Away blocks.

I really love these golds with the brighter yellow in the back ground fabric.  The second block is partially assembled, the fabrics for the third block are selected, but haven't been cut into parts yet. At least there's been some progress and I'm not an entire month behind. 

That's all the scrappy goodness I have to show off this week.  Sashing continues on the Vintage Dresses and hopefully I'll have the center assembled and ready to show off on Monday.

Linking up with Angela over at Soscrappy for this week's Rainbow Scrap Challenge.  Linking up on Sunday with Oh Scrap.

Yep, I like your yellow and gold block too. We were surprised to learn our licenses are good for 8 years. Even for me as a senior! Yikes or amazing, I’m not sure which one.

Your block looks great! Good thing you remembered to renew that license or you would have had to take another day. Our licenses are good for 8 years, and you can register your car for up to 4 years at a time. I saw a "22" sticker the other day.

Standing in line at the DMV is not much fun, but it is good to have it done. Love the yellow fabrics in your block. So happy!

That is probably the prettiest yellow block I’ve ever seen! And way to knock out those errands. They almost seem never-ending at this time of year, don’t they?

Such a bright and cheerful block in the lovely sunny yellows you chose, I especially like how you chose the white fabric with the tiny yellow flowers for the background, it works so well and is a lovely change to a plainer background.

Our driver’s licenses are good for eight yars. Last time I renewed it, I realized I’d be 68 before I had to renew it again. Yikes.

YELLOW/gold in triplicate in this Squared Away block... NICE!!!

Love your yellow block, hat standing in line at the BMV. They have it set up in Indiana now that you only have to go every other time and can renew by mail every four years - I love it!
