Tiny Tuesday Returns

 Jill has started doing Midget Blocks and inspired me to pull mine out again.  It's been ages since I worked on one.  I think it was the Postage Stamp Blocks that got me side tracked.  Nobody is awake to take a picture, so the Christmas tree held up the block for me.  Such a nice tree. 
This is number 35 and is called Butterfly.  It seemed to have more seams than it needed, though I could see it done in lots of different fabrics. I almost substituted in some solid purple and yellow fabrics for the middle section of each wing, but decided to keep it simple.  It's one of those blocks that it would be fun to embellish with embroidery, but I won't 
I also finished off the next step in the RRCB mystery.  I'm using blue instead of pink to use up the extras from DJ.  I'm starting to sound like my husband who speaks in acronyms.  They actually supply them with a manual that list them all out at work.  He's gone next week again and I'm starting to get a little stressed about getting everyone to all of their activities at the right times. I think I've got it all down, but time will tell.  I made a little cheat sheet to keep it all straight.
