A COLORFUL WEEK
This has been a week of fun times and colorful projects. The highlight of my week was a visit from my family nearby. My granddaughter Sarah has a high school student visiting from France for a month. They came over so I could meet Ilena, a lovely girl who speaks English quite well. Sarah is in her third year of studying French. They have been laughing and enjoying each other. Here are Ilena with long hair and Sarah beside her. They will be celebrating their July birthdays together.
I showed them my latest Project Linus quilt idea and they got right down on the floor and laid out all the charm squares, then stacked up the rows so I can use them as leaders and enders. I’ve done two rows so far of ten planned. The packs are Riley Blake Solids and Northcott Colorworks Concepts.
My Rainbow Scrap Challenge Twinkler block was again challenging but satisfying. I found some great teal pieces including, appropriately, the starry sky one.
If that is not enough color, look at what came from Connecting Threads recently. I’m trying to add more solids to my stash. This stack of 17 fat quarters was under $15, just what I “needed”.
The fabric in the foreground is the dress I was wearing that day. That’s why I am the Rainbow Gal around here.
