I was away for most of August and quite a bit in September too, so I was behind, a lot behind. This week I managed to scrounge a few minutes here and there to make some blocks.
I wanted to finish off the September oranges before I got started on October's browns. So I made up 10 little bow ties.
Then I finished off the last of the red Twinkler stars I had prepped for July, since they were just sitting around getting under my feet, but as always there was a blooper.
How come I seem to make a mistake on these every month? I have made heaps of them each month, and each month I carefully lay them out before I sew. And every month, out comes the seam ripper. Anyways, there are now another 4 twinklers to add to those I made in July.
But looking at them in the photo, I reckon you could classify the one on the bottom left as brown. It was definitely red when I sewed it up. Was I seeing things through rose coloured glasses do you think? LOL
Then I set to and made a Cross Roads block in red, one in orange and then one in brown (the October colour), so I have officially started on the browns.
I have yet to make any blocks in Indigo, the colour for August. But I have finished off the reds and the oranges now.
Lots of people have commented in the past months how many scraps I have when I post my RSC posts. Well that's because people gift me their scraps. This is a bag which was given me by Robin last week. A large garbage bag, chockers with scraps of all colours.
That will keep me in scraps for the RSC for the next 5 years I think! And that isn't counting the scraps I generate in my sewing. But before I can use them they will need to be sorted & organised.
I'm going to leave you tonight with some photos of a Central Coast spring evening, taken from our front balcony.
