A little bit of aqua from Making A Lather

I have been playing in the aqua scraps. I made the flying home blocks in light and dark. I just saw this block called the humility block in an old magazine. I know why...

rsc flying home from Making A Lather

I am making a new rainbow scrap challenge quilt this year called flying home. I had enough of this scrap red to make 5 blocks. But it is all gone now. hooray.






 Each Tuesday, Angela at so scrappy is introducing a Tiny Tuesday block. By the end of the year, we will have enough for a sampler rainbow quilt. The first one was string blocks.


We have actual snow. It started through the night and is still snowing. It is so pretty and quiet.
