Saturday in green

 A few touches of light and bright green this week - I cut out a slew of hexagons last night and about 10 are ready for prepping for stitching. If I am tagged with the horses run today that is what I will be working on. 

I pulled some darker green and stitched up this block since I did not have a dark green in the mix for this collection. Something about forgetting the correct size to cut things and my block ended up 12 inches instead of 16! oops. All fixed now. 

I got a bright green butterfly block stitched and basted. All set for applique onto a background next year. This is going to be a multi year project.

I saw this bumblebee this week and managed to get him right after he came out from getting some nectar. 

I hope to see more green and some bits of orange later today when we head to the pumpkin patch! I wish the cool front had gone through already, but alas it looks like later tonight. It will be a hot and sunny day walking around the field. 
Linking up with the RSC Challenge.

Your projects are all coming along so well, Deb.;))) I really like those butterflies a whole lot--so graceful looking, aren't they?
Have fun this weekend...hugs, Julierose

Love seeing all your greens! The hexies seem perfect for working at while at horses. Great photo of that big bumblebee, too! Isn't it fun to see them?!

Lots of green goodness here. I'm intrigued with your butterfly blocks, waiting patiently to see a completed one

Great use of green fabrics. It seems your projects are moving forward very well.
Beautiful bumblebee photo

What a nice variety of GREEN in those blocks, Deb! Here's hoping you found some sewing time, horses or not.
