RSC Saturday.....

I got one pinwheel made this week. The other two..... well, it appears I sewed the triangles wrong...... so sewing that day stopped. I do like how it looks though with the white in the middle. Hmmmm, this might become a RSC block that I do monthly with a consistent white pinwheel. =) Sometimes those mistakes make the greatest quilts.



This morning.... I prepped the other 8 pinwheel blocks that I need and some more scrappy houses in teal.


My plans today.... once I can get the kids moving, dressed, packed and have their rooms cleaned up..... will be driving them to Grandma's with a stop for haircuts on the way. When I get back... cleaning the house, sewing, writing a note for the animal care while away and packing for the beach for a couple of days. Not necessarily in that order =).  I would love to get my UFO for the month quilted today... not sure it will fit into the plans but we will see. It has been a very busy but productive week... just not in the sewing room. My programming work week went well with the kids at swim camp and Grandma picked them up Friday since I was working in the pool store that day. Today... is prep for vacation day and tomorrow Grandma will take the kids over in the morning and Greg and I will join them tomorrow night after working the last day of the sale at the store. Busy, busy, busy as always at my house. I did lots of prep work last weekend so I have plenty of hand work for sitting on the balcony overlooking the ocean the next couple of days. =) I do love listening to the sound of the waves rolling in on the beach.

Head on over to the RSC Challenge and see how others did with their teal this week.

  6. The double pinwheel effect is great. You get my vote for continuing them. Have a relaxing fun time at the beach and forget about everything. Enjoy yourself!

  8. Love those pinwheels! They make me think of ceiling fans cooling everyone on a hot summer day.
