Today is a Sit-back-and-relax Day!
After all the scrambling I've been having to do lately to get all my commitments done on time, it feels wonderful to have a morning to just sit back and relax with my blog buddies!!! You all really do make me happy :*) The iPad is one of today's electronic conveniences that I really enjoy too - I couldn't have been outside working on a blog post this easily several years ago! Even a laptop was big and heavy and clunky back then.
So, let's see..... what can I get into that doesn't require a lot of effort or demands? Today is Saturday, and for me that usually means I get to think SCRAPPY and play with lots of colorful scraps! This month the Rainbow Scrap Challenge over at SoScrappy has been featuring LIGHT GREEN scrappy projects, and of course I have none to share because I didn't do any :( Both of my 2014 Rainbow Scrap Challenge projects already have GREEN blocks, so I took the month off and concentrated on those other demanding projects that really needed my attention. Just in case you've forgotten, here are my 2014 GREEN blocks...
Oh, I DO love this GREEN Hootie!!!!
As you may notice, however, these are NOT scraps! I haven't really been digging into the scraps for my RSC projects this year because I wanted to use some of my prettiest fabrics in them. But for the rest of the year, I will finish washing up the rest of my stash and begin playing with making some more simple, basic blocks with my scraps, maybe some more HST's to add to the ones I made last year?
I also need to reduce these crumbs that are overflowing from my jars, wouldn't you say? I've been wanting to play with these crumbs all year and haven't touched them yet. Here's crossing my fingers that I get to do that soon :)
One of the blog events that has me really excited lately is the upcoming Sew Kind of Wonderful Curve It Up Challenge QAL!
Jenny has been putting on a lovely Blog Hop this past week and getting everyone excited about the QAL. Go HERE to find out how you can play along. It starts September 1, and I know from experience that it will be fun - here are the blocks I made from her first Curve It Up QAL a few years ago ....
Come join in the fun - you'll love the blocks you can make with this wonderful ruler!!!
So, now I'm going to go find a chocolate chip cookie & a fresh cup of tea ....
Anyone want to join me?
Hugs & Blessings,
