Orange Birds


I got to sew up some pretty birds in the air blocks on Thursday and my rainbow collection of them sure is growing! I think some nice browns and blacks are the last two colors I can think of but I'll wait patiently and see what color comes up for October, November and December. I really like how these look and can see myself doing a whole quilt of one scrappy color.... maybe green or blue as I have lots of them in my stash. Head on over to SoScrappy and see what other orange goodness has been worked on this week.

Next week of orange for me will either be some pumpkin place mats or making some schlep bags for the kids to bring their shoes to dance classes. I work a few more days next week in preparation for my parents coming down on the 24th. Today will be clean up the sewing studio for it's transition to guest bedroom. Grandma will take the kids for double kid Saturday and I convinced G that I needed this day without kids to get things prepped for my parents visit since I was stuck with the car last Saturday and did not get any 'fun' me time in my sewing room!

  1. The orange blocks make a nice addition to your collection. Glad you are already thinking about what is left. Hope you have fewer scraps now than you did last year at this time.
