I finally got to make the card trick block this week.
I realized I need more blocks to make my birds in the air quilt to the size I want so I made 12 blue blocks this week. They will be added to the pile of blocks I made a few years ago with the RSC Challenge. I am hoping this one will become a wedding quilt in September for my nephew and his bride. I'm thinking a 15x15 setting for a 90x90 quilt with my 6 inch blocks.... but I just counted and have 133 blocks including these 12. I'm going to need a lot more of these...or they will get a couch throw!
I've been working on my scrappy blue strip all month and it is about 72 inches long and 4 inches wide.
Head on over to SoScrappy on Saturday morning and see what other blue projects (or pink if you started February!) are being worked on.
Oh - I've been looking online for yarn for the mystery crochet along I joined and found this site -consumercrafts.com and ordered my yarn Friday. I am going with my own color selection... hopefully it works! All the color selections were out of stock at the various places I checked on-line and I know they don't have all the colors available at the stores near me.
4 country blue, 2 light country blue, 2 off-white (I'll look for dark country blue at the stores near work Saturday - Joann's, Michaels and Walmart), 2 charcoal heather grey. I really hope I find the dark blue but either way I think it is a good color combo. I do love blue =).
Now to test out dinner. It is clear out the fridge and use up leftovers night. I chopped up the leftover shake and bake chicken breast, added the various veggies and the container of plain spaghetti and plain penne pasta. Made a bechamel sauce and added cheeses. Mixed it together and threw it in a pan in the oven with cheese on top. It smells good. Time to test it out.
