Yellow anyone?

I was able to do a little bit of yellow this week. The first two umbrella's got created and I added a couple of yellow hexagon flowers to their black backgrounds. I think I had 13 yellow flowers to applique this month. Both are 6.5 inch blocks - the umbrellas and the hexagons.




I hope to get a little sewing in today as well..... although I am not sure if it will be yellow or not.

Greg has gone to retrieve Aidan from Grandma's. Emily just took a coffee cake out of the oven for breakfast. After a long day yesterday with a field trip to St. Augustine  with the 4th graders (hey - we came home with the same amount of kids!) it is a relax day for us....... by that I mean no actual plans!

I do hope to trim bushes and weed a bit in the front flower beds, pin Aidan's quilt...and maybe have him quilt it a bit.... but we will see.

Tomorrow - we head to Gainesville to see a Womens college basketball game. Emily was selected by her PE teacher as a 'Champion with Character' and she gets to see the game free and be recognized on center court with the other kids from her school. It should be fun.

Linking up with the RSC Challenge. Head on over and get inspired by all the yellow projects popping up.

When I was teaching, that was always my main goal on a field trip - make sure you come home with the same number of kids that you started out with! :) I love your hexie flowers on their black backgrounds!

your two umbrellas are so cute!! I would love to work in my garden! I bought some spring bulbs but must wait until the end of March to plant them - I will try to work up the soil and clear the bed out before then

Loving those umbrellas! I dug up my mums and separated and replanted. Felt good to get out in the dirt.
