RSC17 week 20


This week has been a fun sewing time.  I got to make two of my favorite monthly scrap blocks.  The weather has been up and down, more conducive for working in my “studio”.  This includes half of my bedroom for sewing and storing overflow of fabrics, kitchen floor for photos and living room table for blogging on my poor worn out iPad.  
Tomorrow I will be the owner of a new iPad Air, in gold no less, which my SIL Tim tells me I will really like.  He ordered it from the Apple website refurbished warranted selection at a great price.  Sarah will be helping me to get it set up.  I’m holding my breath in anticipation.  No more long waits or other annoying happenings.  
The Geese Migration blocks were more of a challenge this time with green.  I tried to make one lighter and one darker without going into the olive tones (too dull).  So some fabrics show up in both blocks.

Lots of monkey business and hootinlg owls hanging around made them lively.
My time was taken up with my kitchen floor being replaced.  Believe it or not, a crack in the vinyl turned  into a 7-inch pothole.  So the fridge and stove had to be removed and stowed in the hallway.  I was very impressed with the quality of the work the installer did.  But instead of off white tiles, the new floor is ugly, stupid-looking brown shades of pretend wood scraps. As long as they were making a photo vinyl, they could at least have made it attractive.  It even came with built-in scuff marks!  You will be seeing glimpses of it in the future.
Back to the sewing.  I finished the two green houses.  Lots of contrast and cute inhabitants kept the fun going for me.


This is my last post on old faithful iPad.  Maybe I will be doing amazing things with the new one, but I doubt it.  I will be checking out your posts tomorrow while I wait until Sunday for the new one to be set up.
Wishing you all a fun sewing-filled week.
Hope to see you, dear friends, when you visit

  1. Your green blocks are so much fun, Paula! I love the way you've done some fussy cutting to have some special characters joining in the fun, too! Enjoy your new iPad. I didn't know you could buy refurbished ones like that. I should tell my hubby – he really needs a new one, too.


  2. I love your bright Geese Migration blocks (so happy!) and the cute house blocks. You have a knack for making things fun. You will enjoy your iPad Air. Mine is gold, too, although you can't tell because it's in a red protective cover. Have a great week!


  3. all the green blocks looking good spotted some Kaffe fabric too. Best of luck with your new toy! Just as well they replaced the flooring or you would not have known about the hole. I have tiles in my kitchen hate them as the floor always feels so cold, would love some lino or similar but would cost too much to have the tiles taken up etc


  4. That Flying Geese block is one of my favourites and I like what you are doing with the houses too – especially their funny inhabitants. I hope the transition to your new ipad goes smoothly.
