Scrappy Saturday in Yellow....

I see that there have been seven sampler blocks posted with yellow. There are seven yellow blocks in Angela's RSC layout so I do believe she is all done with the samplers this month.... Maybe? I have six..... I need to go back and make the lemoyne star block in yellow and orange. Could it be orange for the month of July? Red or Maroon? I guess we'll just have to wait and see. I still have a bit of yellow bits to sew together this month. Hopefully I can get my churn dashes and my 16 patch completed before the end of the month. It has been a bit hectic this month. Grandma is on the mend from her surgery and we are still Buddy (horse.... I mean dog) sitting. He is being really good and the cats are tolerating him. I'm not sure who is more afraid of the other!

My sampler blocks so far this month.


Head on over to SoScrappy and see all the yellows that have come out to play this month.

As for me..... I have worked the last two days and had a birthday party at Chuck E Cheese this morning with the kids. They just took Buddy out back to play so I can attempt to pick up the disaster house and attempt to vacuum, dust and mop. Hopefully it does not look like it does now after I work the next two days at the store. I have more swim lessons with the kids for the next two weeks. Mr. Aidan was tested on Thursday - the last day of lessons and passed his two lap test of three strokes and breathe to the side on the fourth. He actually swam three laps to pass it and got his official swim cap to mark his entrance to stroke school. Greg mentioned he overheard one of the parents who tried to buy one of the caps and Ms. Sue said no - the kids have to earn it! That made it extra special for Aidan.

I'd better get busy on the housework (note - I did my sewing first =)) so it is time to throw in some laundry and make some bread dough for burger buns for dinner (assuming the rain and thunder storms don't come back) and then cleaning will commence around here.

  1. I'm hoping orange is the next color Deb. That's the only Soul Searching color I don't have for my quilt! Your yellow sampler blocks are so cute. I love seeing them all come to life each month! Buddy must be a pretty large dog! My granddaughter is visiting us with her dog - but it is a little chihuahua :)

  2. I love your yellow blocks. I don't know why I don't have more yellow in my stash.

    I'd love to have caps like that for my grands ... while they have to wear team caps at their meets wouldn't it be awesome If they could wear caps like that at practice?

  3. Orange would be a perfect color to reflect the hot month of July. I still need to cut the rest of my wonky star and get it stitched, got lazy today after making homemade pizza. Congratulations to Aidan for earning his cap! A great lesson for kids to learn.

  4. Way to go Aiden for earning the swim cap! Hope the rain held off for your burgers, we've had a bit of thunder and rain here. I've still got a few more yellow blocks going on, mixing in with a bit of orange, though it won't be the color for July! Couldn't do yellow then orange right after, but I'll be ready when the orange month finally comes. I'm a fan of sewing before housework too. The housework never ends, so sewing would be too rare otherwise.

  5. Wow good for Aidan and the swim cap is too cool! Your yellow blocks are great. So we know orange isn't for July but we haven't had red for those great summer blooms yet or brown for sandy beaches or ..... I'm sure Angela will have a pleasant surprise for us. Great yellow blocks! Hope Grandma is well on the road to recovery.

  6. Love the yellow blocks! Way to go Mr. Aidan! So glad you can't buy the caps. They surely wouldn't mean as much. Nice that Mr. Aidan is progressing. Have a great rest of the weekend. ~Jeanne

    Love your sampler blocks. Looks like orange will not be the color for July. Who knows. Maybe it will be RED : )
