Since that is the last color of the rainbow and we have not worked on it yet this year I believe yellow is Octobers color of the month!
I technically did a little yellow last month to make a couple stars and nines... which is getting it's binding hand sewn down today. I plan to wash it on Sunday and mail it out on Monday to my sister. This one finishes at 48x60.
I was able to cut out the 14 yellow cobblestone blocks. Those will get sewn up today and made into their strip. I purchased some grey for the strip in between each of the rows already. My hope is to have that one to a top by next week. Ignore the mess under the sewing table!
I'll bring my Endless Diamonds to Emilys horse riding lesson today.... there is a little yellow. I went with a 'halloween' theme for this block!
A lot of building has been happening in the back yard. Seems if you get chickens at different times you can't just put them in together when they are different sizes.... So Greg got to build another coop! This is bigger and more stable and will eventually house all 9 of them. Yes, it does look like an outhouse! The 'extra' one will be used for separating them if someone is sick or for when they come back from the fair for a week or two. The two runs will be connected with chicken wire in between the two. We will add a door for when we can intermingle them so they have more space to be.
We'll keep the 4 big ladies where they are for now until the 5 that are inside are to full size in another few months. 3 of the 5 are ready for outside so I was happy with the progress made on the coop over the last few days. He did make me nervous up on the roof yesterday though. Good thing his life insurance is all paid up! =)
Linking up with the RSC today.
