On Sunday morning Angela released the April Color Announcement. Yesterday, I guessed that the new color would be the same as my current nail polish. :o))
So... welcome to week one of...
On Monday, I spent a few minutes going through my scraps to dig out fabrics to work with during the coming month. That's all I had time for, so pictures will have to wait for another day.
While you're waiting for that picture, have a look at the stack of YELLOW blocks that I made during the month of March:
|It doesn't look so bad in the close-up...|
Tuesday saw NO sewing, RSC or otherwise. I looked at the Tiny Nine that I prepped last week, but (wisely) opted to work on one of my commission quilts (as it felt SO GOOD to make progress on that front!) and then... Off I went to Quilt Bee. :o))
Have any guesses as to how many blocks were sewn during YELLOW month???
Shall we take inventory?
Sure, Joyful. Have at it!
EIGHT (8) String Blocks:
FOUR (4) Maverick Star Blocks:
THREE (3) Slab Blocks:
FOUR (4) Tiny Nines:
|(In desperate need of pressing!!)|
For a total of NINETEEN (19) YELLOW blocks made during the month of March. Just think! If I had only made that one last Tiny Nine the total would have seemed MUCH better. Don't you agree?
If you recall, I like to point out the trimmings, too. Therefore, I present the small stack of trimmed up YELLOW squares to be used in future projects:
Let's take a moment to review the composite photo for the (measly) outcome of the YELLOW sewing done during the month of March:
|Hey!! That YELLOW progress doesn't look so bad, after all!!!|
That brings us to Wednesday, the day that I worked all day and then made the trip to pick up DS1 from college for the "Spring Holiday." (Not to be confused with Spring Break which was in March!) I blame the TRAFFIC for my lack of RSC sewing today! The trip (going AND coming) took TWICE as long as it should have!!! Grrr!!!
The only saving grace???
I wasn't the one driving on the way there!!! DS2 needed more "supervised driving time", even though he already HAS his driver's license. Fighting traffic one way was enough for him, so I had the "pleasure" of driving home (since DS1 injured his shoulder last week.)
Thursday went by in a blur! There was too much going on for any RSC sewing to get done. However, these are the scraps that I've gathered to work with during the month of PURPLE... er... I mean April. I should totally be able to make to good blocks with these fabric scraps:
This Friday I had hoped to get a TON of RSC sewing completed. Alas, commission quilts await and there are precious few days in which to get them done! I'll share a bit of PURPLE goodness from my garden because that's the only thing that REMOTELY relates to the RSC Color of the Month:
|Hooray!! The dwarf iris bloomed today!!|
Saturday was a work day for me. I did manage to finish this post and LINK up with the other RSC Quilters over on Angela's SoScrappy blog. Look for me at link # 22 this week. Go have a look at all of the PURPLE awesomeness that everyone else was up to... since you didn't get that here.
I worked all day yesterday (and, as mentioned, worked on commission quilts when I got home.) I was so busy that I didn't have time to check Angela's blog.
Too busy and then I was such a hurry to post/link up this morning that I didn't even notice that Angela had posted the first RSC Sampler block of the month!! It's the Carrie Nation block and you can give the tutorial a try to make blocks of your own. Thanks to Marly at Marly's Quilts for cluing me in so that I could let YOU know! :o))
Until next time...
