Saturday in green......

First off - I'm happy to report that my crossroads quilt I made during the first green month is now completed! Well... two more binding sides to go.

I also made my 12 churn dashes this week. Oops.... 11 not 12!

A 16 patch block.

I started cutting out step two for the Celtic Solstice mystery from last fall. All 200 bright green rectangles are cut. Now for the 200 neutral and yellow squares. I think I'll also do the step of the four patches of orange and green - or at least cut the green strips out this month while the pile is next to the cutting mat. Maybe orange will be next month so I can do the other steps with orange then?!? Pretty Please Angela?

Head on over Saturday morning to see what other scrappy greens were played with this week over at the Rainbow Scrap Challenge.

We went to school this morning to meet the kids teachers. Em is tickled pink to have Mrs. Weiss - who happens to team teach with Mrs. Honstead (Aidan's KG teacher last year). Aidan has Mrs. Medina who knew him and his teacher from last year. She looks like a great teacher too. They are very excited to head to school next week. Aidan gets to go all week and Emily will go the last three days. There was only one person under Wednesday so Mrs. W asked if she would like to go that day and make a new friend. She agreed. Looks like a great school year ahead for the kids.

  4. Great greens! Nice finish on the crossroads quilt. So glad the kiddos are looking forward to school. My mom used to say "If you think you'll enjoy it or if you think you won't, you are probably right." She used this phrase in relation to a lot of things and it really is quite true! ~Jeanne

  5. You have been working hard I see. I don't know how Angela can say no to orange after that plea!

  7. The Crossroads quilt looks great. So nice to have a finish from the first round of green. The green Churn Dash blocks are so fresh looking.
    Now I understand why the American Big Box stores start the back to school promos so early. Canadian kids have another two weeks of vacation and have been whining about all of the Back to School ads starting so soon.
