RSC Sampler Blocks

I managed to get a little bit of sewing in today before cleaning and dusting the sewing room for company tomorrow.
I pulled some pinks and made most of the basket block. I hope to put a few stitches in tonight on that handle. Then I pulled the only real teal I have and made a friendship star block. I'm going to cheat a bit and use the blues that I think are ocean colors this month.

Head on over to SoScrappy and see all the links with amazing projects people are working on through the Rainbow Scrap Challenge.

For all those up in the colder climates...... we had smores cooked on the grill for dinner tonight. Late lunch of gyro brats so no one was really hungry for dinner. Sugar cone (ice cream), Hershey square of chocolate and a marshmellow. Yummy!

The kids are having their showers, then some family game time and books before we tuck them into bed tonight. I'll work on that basket handle and then continue with my orange peels.

Your blocks are looking great. I have fallen a bit behind with the RSC but I am sure I will get caught up at some point.

Great Smore's recipe, I'll have to give it a try. Great work on the two RSC blocks. Feel free to define aqua however you like. Always best to bend the rules to make them work for you.

Oooh, that version of s'mores sounds absolutely wonderful! Yum!

Glad you were able to get a little sewing done earlier ... and again this evening. I was able to move the hoop this evening before I ran out of gas.

It's tough to fit everything into a weekend. Happy to hear you've managed so much - cleaning, quilting, cooking and family time.

Such a great idea for smores. We pulled the grill out tonight and cooked steaks. It was -7, but it worked. We were just so hungry for a good steak.

good idea for the smores. Look yummy.
I pulled teal, aqua and turquoise for the challenge this month. This works best for me.
Chickened out on that cute basket block. Substituted a scrappy 9 patch for it :D
