RSC in Yellow...

I had plans to sew last night. We did family game night instead. Sometimes you just gotta spend time with the family. The boys won the first game of pictionary. Aidan and I won the second game.

Now the question... do I just put the red away or finish making a few crumb blocks today? I think I'll finish up the 4 - 6.5 inch crumb blocks to make another 12 inch crumb block to join the collection.

I did get 5 red umbrellas done for the month of January. These are my tiny Tuesday posts... if I get them done in time!

I have almost all those hexagons in the header photo basted - just dark blue and green to go! I pulled a couple of yellows and cut out the 13 black backgrounds I needed this month for them. These 2 got appliqu├ęd down in the car line yesterday.

Taking stock of my 'in process' blocks.... looks like I could make 12 yellow friendship star blocks,

some 9 patches (that I started this year... and think a applique circle will go with these) ,

and I need to check the bow tie blocks but I think I have yellows done for that set.

I *might* have to start the graduation quilt..... since that is blue and yellow in a chevron pattern. Time will tell.

Linking up with the Rainbow Scrap Challenge.

Until then... it is girl scout cookie season at my house. The cookies are being picked up this morning. Emily wants to sell 300 boxes this year! Yikes.... she has about 80 spoken for so far. We have a lot of work to reach her goal. Unfortunately... the first weekend of cookie booths is Feb 15...... we are on a long field trip that day to St. Augustine and that Sunday the 17th ..... Emily is one of the kids with character picked by her p.e. teacher to attend a college womans basketball game in Gainesville! I'm taking that weekend off!

The boy is going with Grandma today birthday shopping and lunch out. I told Emily we would go get a pedi today.... my feet need some pampering and the temps are warming up and I should be able to wear shorts/sandals again this week. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE wearing jeans and the cooler weather in Florida the last 2 weeks has been lovely. But the sandals will be worn again this week so it is time!

well I would get some thin mints from Emily if I was closer :) I guess I will have to keep an eye out for the kids around here - they usually sell in front of wal-mart
how many quilts are you planing? are some of the blocks going in the same quilts or all different


Lots of fun and colorful projects there--and I love your assistant--hope kitty got a 'treat' for helping--
I will need new sandal type shoes when I get moved back to Fl--(no--news yet!!) But I have gotten myself a couple pairs of Capri's for when I get back-- !!!
luv, di
I used to love the thin mints--but haven't had any in years--!!

Your blocks are all looking great! Your tiny umbrellas are really fun. The black background will make a nice contrast for the yellow hexie flowers!

You are on your way with YELLOW for the RSC, but it sounds like this is a busy month. Best of luck to Emily on her lofty cookie goal!!

Looks like lots of stitching going on but I really love the family game night. We still have them although now that my sons are grown they are fewer and far between. We definitely take advantage whenever both of my sons are home at the same time - it is a precious ritual! :)

I always like your tiny blocks! I am looking forward to a finish this week.
