Somehow, May whizzed past me in a blur. For starters we didn't get back from overseas until the 5th. Being away for a month meant a huge backlog of "stuff" that needed attention, and then last weekend I went on retreat.
Nevertheless, I have managed to keep up with the challenge this month. Firstly I made a handful of green Twinkler Stars the day before I left for the retreat, and made the rest last night.
While on the retreat, I got stuck into chain piecing my Bow Tie blocks one evening. I had prepped them before I left, so it was easy peasy.
They came together quickly, and soon there were 15.
Looking at these photos has made me realise that the blocks are all pretty dark. I am hoping that in the end when I put them all together, they will blend into the other rainbow colours and won't look too dull.
Also while on retreat, I put together the scrappy 25 patch blocks I made for the RSC last year. Here it is ready to sew together.
I wanted to make it up in a 3 x 4 layout, so I had to make 2 extra blocks. The extra ones are the pale blue top left and the pale pink third row middle.
I got most of it done at the retreat - just 2 borders to sew on and I can show the completed top. It will go with me on Thursday next week to Stitching Hearts, and is destined for Ronald McDonald House. It will be the first time in 2 months that I've been to Stitching Hearts so I'm really looking forward to going.
Linking this post up to the link party at SoScrappy. Why not pop over and see what other green goodies people have made this week.
Til next time.....Keep on stitching.
