ScrapHappy Saturday - Purple Mountains Ma

Another ScrapHappy Purple Saturday has rolled around and I am still working through purple Dear Jane Blocks.  I finished three and two halves this week at gymnastics and piano lessons and during evening TV.  Not much energy for actual sewing this week but I can still feel like I moved a little bit forward.
I was paper piecing another block last Sunday and it is still sitting on the ironing board just where I left it.  Sydney has a Girl Scout field trip this morning and Ryan has a football game, but I think there is time for a bit of sewing after those are done.  There is a birthday party this evening, which will take the girls away and Ryan is likely to be tired after having two friends sleepover last night.  I am ready to tackle the corner kites -- wish me luck!

It is so fun seeing your DJ blocks come to life :*) The kites are not so bad - I was terrified of them until I did my first one and relaxed. Hope you find some time to stitch this weekend :*)

Your Dear Jane blocks are so gorgeous!! You are sewing them up so fast too. It takes me all my effort to sew one a week, LOL... Thank you for hosting this fun challenge and linky.
