This past week I have been feeling a bit under-the-weather but thankfully, I think I have turned the corner. That being said, I have had very little energy all week and I have not accomplished much other than going to work and doing the minimum that needed to be done around the house and garden. I don't normally work on Fridays so yesterday, instead of getting caught up on the list of things that needed to be done, I took most of the day to myself and spent some much needed quality time in my sewing room puttering around. I now have some Midget Blocks and Dear Jane blocks prepped and ready to be put together. I am taking a page from Angela's book (click on the link to see all of the blocks she has made) and getting my little duckies in a row so that hopefully, I won't fall behind on my goal of making and posting one each of these little blocks per week. Even though the blocks are very small they do require quite of bit of time to make - particularly the ones that are hand-pieced. I will be going to Toronto today to visit with my sister Cheryl, my Mom and sister Christine, and while I am there I hope to hand-piece a Dear Jane block while we are hanging around chatting.
I love this month's colour for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge and have made my 9 patch blocks for my Rainbow Quilt. Why not make something using your aqua scraps and then head on over to soscrappy's blog to link up!
