Slim pickings for green

For as busy as I've been, I sure don't have a lot to show for it.

A couple of Chantal's Pinwheels


and a plain kaleidoscope block are the only things I have for my greens this week.


Oh, and those silly wee boats I posted the other day.  I had hoped to get to my Whatchacallit Stars this week, but it didn't happen.

Some of my time was spent fanning out these fabrics that I picked out as my prize for Scraptastic Tuesday's May drawing.  I picked out this collection of fat quarters from Mad About Patchwork.



I spy a fair bit of orange in there, so apparently I wasn't quite done with last month's color.  Though I freely admit that my younger daughter's admiration for orange has really rubbed off on me.

And I pulled some fabrics that I'm going to use for a Sew Together bag for me me me!


I'd made my oldest daughter one in Australian prints and it was really really hard to let it go when the time came.  So I've grabbed a few more fat quarters and will make it up to and for myself.

And I've also spent some time on a still-secret project which I'll soon be sharing pics of, so stay tuned!


Linking with So Scrappy for ScrapHappy Saturday.  Come see all the rainbow fun!

It was still a good week even if you didn't have a lot to "show" for it.

Little boats post was TOO funny! Orange and aqua is an intriguing color combination, as I always pair orange with lime GREEN. Are you ready for a NEW Color of the Month??? I've barely done any GREEN sewing... Sigh!

Congrats on winning. Love the fabrics you picked for the win (I see many beautiful orange, yumm!) and those picked for the bag. Can't wait to see this latest project take shape. Enjoy! :^)

What lovely winnings, Gayle! So perfect for you! I've wanting to tackle a Sew Together bag, so I'm curious to know how you thought making it was!

Nothing is more fun than fanning new fabrics. You deserve a bag for yourself, so go, girl!

Some months are busier than others. Hopefully, June will bring you some stitching time.

I'm drooling over all your fabrics this week! Love the greens, the oranges and all the prints for the Sew Together!

I didn't do much with green this month either. However, yesterday I started on a wedding quilt all in green batiks. I'm looking forward to a new color for scrap sewing though.

Now I'm hopping from foot to foot wondering what your top secret projects is!!! Good on you for winning the draw of those lovely oranges.
