RSC in pink...

I got a little bit of sewing time yesterday and was able to iron some of my pink bits and came up with these three 6 inch blocks. I don't have a plan for these right now but can see making some crumb blocks each month and then turning them into something in December.


Yesterday was the hubby's birthday and my niece's birthday. One is in college and one had the option of having the day off from work or working. He chose to go to work (slow at the store vs. a full day with 2 active kids.....yup, he is a smart guy!) I took the kids shopping Thursday and they picked things for him but I wanted to wait and wrap them today. They decided to hide his presents so he would not find them until his birthday. It seems they didn't think he needed wrapping and just pulled out his presents from hiding and gave them to him in the morning while I was in the shower. Then they joined hands (they are 4 and 3 remember) and sang him 'Happy Birthday'. It was so darn cute!
The only thing left to do is make some low carb chocolate chip cookies (yes, they do exist) so we have something to put a candle in later tonight. His birthday meal of brats, coleslaw and a low carb pasta salad (Dreamfields) will make my life easy and him happy.

I think I need to pull a UFO for next week... and that pink scrappy X quilt needs quilting. Lets see if I can get two for the price of one! UFO and RSC. I do love that my manager gave me Sunday off again this week. I plan to sew!

Head on over to SoScrappy and see what other pink goodness is being worked on this week. There were lots of new people linked up - so fun to see.

  4. I am learning so much terminology through this scrap challenge. I didn't know what a crumb block was but I really like how it's pieced all over the place on the little blocks. This is perfect for using up all my tiny pieces!
