June is for Purple! from The Modern Diary

I finally had an easy time with this block now that I am on number six and have written tips on the pattern (start at the bottom for example).  I ordered another aqua fabric which hopefully works with this one since I do not have anything of similar shade in my entire stash.  I never knew there were so many aquas!  I do not have enough for framing each block so I thought if I did half in another aqua and put it all together it would look decent.  Linking up with SoScrappy!

I organize my strings each month too ...

Rainbow Scrap Challenge: Channeling the 60s? from Life In Pieces

For the first time in the seven years that I've played along with the Rainbow scrap challenge there is no new project to start in January.  Since 2012, I've started nine RSC projects and only four of them are finished projects.  In sticking with my word "Finish" for 2020, I'm going to focus my efforts there this year.  So the plan is to make some progress on the Wild and Goosey blocks that were started as last year's project.  



The green and orange combo in the photo brought to mind images of the green shag carpet ...

To Do Tuesday #4 for 2020 from Life In Pieces

I'm in New Orleans on a work assignment, but I should be headed home tomorrow.  Being on the road took a couple of days out of my normal sewing week, but I did manage to get in some good effort last weekend, so there was progress and a few check marks on last week's list.

Twinkle Stars:  Clean up the back of the quilt top, press - progress
Frolic: Make 9 blocks - progress
Wild and Goosey Blocks: Make green blocks for RSC

To Do Tuesday: #3 for 2020 from Life In Pieces

Winter has set in, at least for this week.  It's miserably cold, but at least it was sunny yesterday.  Speaking of cold, My Guy apparently has one. He's been feeling crappy since the weekend, now we know why.  Not the best start to a new week especially since last week wasn't particularly good for the to do list.  

Weekly To Do List (01/14/2020)
1. Twinkle Stars: de-thread Twinkle Stars and backing - progress
2. Frolic - Finish clues 3 and 5, progress on other clues - progress
3. Winter Quilt Along - Measure quilt, find backing

Only one check ...

2020 Rainbow Scrap Challenge from Life In Pieces

For the first time since I started participating in the Rainbow Scrap Challenge, I didn't end the year with a set of blocks ready for setting.  My 2019 RSC project was a rainbow version of Bonnie Hunter's Wild and Goosey pattern.  Those little blocks take a lot of time to piece, so I didn't get very far.  


Modified Wild and Goosey
Based on Bonnie Hunter's pattern in Addicted to Scraps

Not a bad stack from last year, but I still need to add purple and red-violet to the mix.  Plus I need lots more of each ...

mini template round 2 from Making A Lather

I went to a geneology workshop last night and feel motivated to try a little harder to search through my family history. I know it can be important to my Grandchildren who never knew my family. They were all gone by the time they were born. That is what happens to a late in life daughter of a late in life daughter of a late in life daughter. And Yes, I had a late in life child, even though I swore I wouldn't. It's a blessing and a curse......
Playing with the new mini pineapple ruler is addictive ...
