I had an extra set of the wing pieces already cut for the kites, so I pulled a couple of darker pinks (I only have 2 or 3 darker pinks in the stash???) to make one of the kites for the month. It joined the 2 darker blues from last month. I guess I am using some leftover backing fabrics with grey and snowflakes for this set of blocks.
I pulled out these strips which are extra's from a quilt I made for Emily. I also found a heart gifted to me from my friend Moneik. Somehow these two things will be worked into the ABC (table) scrap Challenge Joy hosts this month with the prompt letters of M and V! It also will check off my Winter UFO #13 to get these scraps into something usable and out of the sewing room! (Don't you love how I keep combining challenges?) There is pink in here too - to hit that Pink checkbox!
While sewing up the kites, I added some more pink flying geese from the parts leftover from Sweet Confetti. I know that had 96 colored fabrics - so there should be 10 pieces in each color with 6 for the last one. I'll have to check the quilt, but I think purple was the six.... so, there should be 4 more somewhere in a basket on the sewing table. These are using a white dot print that I seem to always have in the sewing room for the wings.
Linking up Saturday with the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. Looks like I just have horses with Emily on Saturday morning. Grandma is taking Aidan out for lunch and shopping for his 15th birthday on Monday! Where has the time gone? His birthday wish is another year subscription to F1. He sure has gotten his money's worth from last year's subscription. We watched a race from 2021 Thursday evening after they had a late dinner.
Love the pink Flying Geese--and your kites! I am trying NOT to make anything new but stay focused on UFO finishing...I am finding it hard to keep my SEWJO going when I do this!! I may allow myself to do a small scrap-busting project in between...VERY COLD here today and tonight we are expecting below zero wind chills...So grateful for our propane generator--trees going down all over here in the high winds...so far so good here at our house though..
Hugs, Julierose P>S> Happy Birthday to Aidan..[wow--15!!]
15 - happy birthday to your boy - they sure grow up fast. All of your projects are looking great - have fun time with the horses - are you still riding too?
Pretty pink projects, love the kites. Happy birthday to Adrian.
This year I too am combining challenges! It just seems the best way to go for me. I want to participate, but then they just become UFOS! Don’t need any more of those! Happy Birthday to Aiden! A 15 yo who love F1! Wonderful’,
Lots of pretty pinks at your house! I really like those kite blocks - it will be fun to see your collection of those grow. The leftover strips with different shaped triangles will make a great Tablescraps project, too! Happy Birthday to Aidan, and have a great Saturday!
LOVE that you are combining your PINK with random quilt challenges, Deb!! Looking forward to seeing what comes of it all.
So many great projects. Yes, when you can accomplish two projects in one it is a BIG win.
You did very well with all your projects this week. I like the beginnings of your Table Scrap Challenge so far. See ytou next week!
