I've been working on orange peels this year as part of the Rainbow Scrap Challenge and I believe I have decided that I will group four of one color together and make some X and O's out of them. I still have quite a few yellow's to work through from this month but they travel well and will be taken with me on vacation to work on. I'm going to cut out some maroon, red, brown and maybe some blacks to take with me as well since none of those colors have come up yet in the challenge. It can't hurt to get ahead a bit on these..... right?
Here are the five yellows I have gotten done and some blue ones I finished off this week from last month. I'm also including a dish cloth I finished this month. I finally found it hiding under some baskets that I had set aside while I was trimming up the bricks and cornerstone quilt. I have enough sugar and cream yarn left from this skein of green and cream to make another one which is in process.
We had a great time at SeaWorld today with Erin and her girls Hope and Ella. Hope was in Aidan's PreK class last year and Erin and I helped with making some of the costumes for the dance recital in April. We left in a downpour but the kids had a great time. We got there around 10 and left a bit after 1 I think. Emmy fell asleep on the way home. I just love watching them when they are sleeping.
I think all I need to do now is pack me and the kids up for the carryon bags for Monday night, grab a few more snacks to take with us on the plane and prep a few Midget blocks and cut and prep my orange peels for travel. Oh - I also need to box and ship up the Bricks and Cornerstone quilt tomorrow so I can finish the binding while I am up there. That will go to my nephew Charlie. I plan to get a shot of the completed quilt on the bench swing down by the lake. I don't think I will get the log cabin quilted in time so I'll work on that one when I get back. I think that one may just have to stay down here and live on my bed.... he he. Sorry Mom. I really like how it came out. Maybe I'll do a green and cream one and that one can live up at camp.
Head on over to SoScrappy on Saturday to see what other yellow projects are being worked on.
