I got to play with some yellow this week.
Two RSC blocks were completed.

I also did a lot of hand work this week - mainly with hexagon flowers. I cut out 8 earlier this week and sewed them up over the last two evenings. I cut out an additional 5 this morning. Just need to use my new handy dandy template I created to mark my sewing line for these on the back.

I finally had a light bulb moment and created another template for my hexagons (I use one to trace them for cutting out.) and drew lines 1/4 of an in on the inside and then cut out the middle on that line. Perfect sewing line every time and so much easier than how I was doing it. You can see my new template here.

They want to make their second one today (dinosaurs and tinker bell) .... but first we did a bike ride, next will be pulling up the garden and attempting to replant and weeding a bit out back in the other ones. We just need to remember to water the garden every morning! A quick shower for me -then some errands to run, including the library to pick out books. Home for lunch and then homework time for both (ridiculous amount of homework sent home with Aidan for the summer). Then...... pillowcase time. I think we'll all deserve some pool time after that. Speaking of which... I'd better go check the balance now in case I need to add some chemicals. Did that while the pictures were loaded and we are good to swim!
Head on over to SoScrappy on Saturday morning for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge link party.
