The start of a new month means that there is a new colour for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge...For March, I am using my yellow/gold scraps to create blocks for my three projects. I had to go digging for some extra yellow selvages but found enough to create two foundation pieced squares which I cut in half to create 4 triangles. There are not enough gold coloured selvages in my extensive collection to create gold selvage blocks.
I did, however, have enough gold and yellow squares to create two 36 patch blocks.
Last, but not least, I made my scrappy drunkard's path blocks--again, only in yellow. I don't have enough gold scraps to make one in that colour.
These yellow and gold blocks are safely tucked away with the blocks for January and February.
My stash report for February:
Fabric added to the stash: 2 yards
Fabric used in February: 6.6 yards
Net Fabric used in February: 4.6 yards
Fabric used in 2022: 14.2 yards
I started knitting my new hat last night during a zoom meeting. I find if I keep my hands busy, I am able to pay better attention to what is going on. My winter jacket is turquoise so this hat will co-ordinate nicely!
When out for a walk this week, I noticed that someone has made some crocheted sunflowers to remind us all to pray for Ukraine. There were several of these hanging from the trees along the path where I usually walk.
I have banished all of my winter decorations to a bin in the basement and hope that by adding a few spring items here and there, the warmer weather will be encouraged to arrive sooner rather than later.
My husband and I did something very unusual last Sunday afternoon...We went to a Quilt Show! A Presbyterian Church hosted the show as a fundraiser for Camp Kintail, a church camp that hosts hundreds of children every summer and retreats for adults and families throughout the year. The quilts were all displayed in the sanctuary, over the pews and wherever they could find a spot. Here are a few pictures.
I can't have a blogpost without a Finn appearance now, can I??? He's just waiting for my daughter to give him a belly rub. Who could resist?
I will link up with the Rainbow Scrap Challenge folks on Saturday and Kathy's Slow Stitching gang on Sunday.
