Last Saturday for Pink - RSC
Wow, I can't believe how quickly we have gone through January. Just a couple more days and February will be here and there will be a new colour for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. I haven't finished using my pink scraps by a long shot but there will always be more opportunities to use them up.
Earlier in the week I had been playing around with making small basket blocks and I wasn't too happy with my first try. I thought it was the black base that was bothering me but now I think it is really the square on top. As you can see, the next blocks I made I used all one colour and I changed the square to an hst. I think they will do fine but I still want to see how they will look with the black base. They will finish at 4" and they are quite cute.
I was in Toronto all day yesterday and I had hoped to sew last night but the drive home took 2 hours because of the snow and traffic conditions. Thankfully my husband drove - it was a very stressful commute. By the time we got home I had such a headache and I was really feeling beat so, no sewing.
I still have a headache this morning and, oh, I do hope that it is not the beginning of something worse. There are so many cold and flu bugs flying around right now. I hope I didn't pick anything up!! I am going to spend a quiet morning puttering around in my sewing room making more basket blocks and maybe some more star blocks too.
