Hi all! Well, this week I looked at the calendar and realized that it's the middle of November. How in the world did that happen? Seriously, isn't it still September?
This week I actually finished two small projects. Yay me! Here is the first one, a green crumb star for my RSC 15 project:
I don't have a ton of lime green, so I was going to mix the light greens and limes. Don't do it! You wouldn't believe how bad the light greens look next to the brighter greens. They really look gray. The crumb block is the last one I need for this year's Framed project. Yay! I do need to go purchase a small bit of lime for the frame in order to finish off that quilt. Gosh, shopping for fabric. Doesn't that sound awful?
Don't know why it looks a little gray on the tree, except that it was raining when I took the picture. This photo shows the colors a lot better:
I tried for this crumb block to be somewhat "log cabiny" and I think it worked out.
Since I wasn't thinking when we were packing things up in a big hurry, all of our coasters are in storage. What was I thinking? We still have furniture to protect! So, I also made up these coasters from a treasured Mary Engelbreit scrap:
I really did not plot out the storage thing very well. There are so many small things that I wish I had, but they're all in boxes. But at least these little things will be a spot of brightness in the living room at the condo. That fabric makes me happy every time I look at it.
Hope everyone has a great weekend. We are going to my best friend's wedding. She is my age and has never been married, and we are all so happy that she has finally found someone to share her life with. It will be like a reunion for us, so it should be a lot of fun!
