RSC in red.... week 2

Well, it doesn't seem like much but progress has been made with the red hexagon flowers. I have ten all completed - they are appliquéd down on to the black background. I need to cut some more squares out to finish off the rest this week. I have seven to go.

I also cut out some 2 inch squares to make 9 patches. Why I made sure there were FIVE in each pile.... for a nine patch..... I am not quite sure! I had to grab a few more strips from the bin and cut a few more for each of them. Little nines.... not sure what they will become... maybe set with white and black like Angela, little stars.... I'll just make some each month and see what they decide to become.

Linking up with the RSC Challenge.

Hubby's birthday was Friday. He took the day off work and relaxed. We went out to Yamata's for dinner with the kids then headed over to where the scoop shop is to see what older model cars were out for their monthly meet.

Aidan loves cars..... and Emily was enjoying seeing the clean engines and the different models. This one arrived right before we left and the couple said the kids could sit in the car! It had a rumble seat!

Today... Emily had a 1 hour lesson with a bunch of the other kids in the show next Saturday. She wants to work with them on what they will need to do. They were practicing circles with the horses on Tuesday so I assume that is one of the tasks.

The garden got weeded, tilled and parts replanted. I pulled the radishes (yummy) and replanted for you Mom. The scallions are up... we'll throw a few more in of those as well. Now if I remember to water them we might have progress this time with the beans, peas and beets. The swiss chard is little but hopefully regular watering will help it along. Aidan has squash and peppers planted as well. I need to grab some herbs and lettuce to add to the mix too.

it is great to have a good night out isn't it. Neat looking car and so hard to believe you have a garden right now - but I do know you are in Florida so you are lucky!

Love your hexie flowers on the black background! Also love that you can plant a garden this time of year! My SIL and BIL moved to Ocala about a year ago to retire there - they used to love to have a big garden, but I don't think they've done that down there yet.

Happy Birthday, to Hubby!! Regarding your Nine Patch pieces in RED... perhaps, you were thinking to add background pieces for the "4-spots."

Great start on your RSC2019 reds.
