New Month

I almost completely forgot that today is a new month!  I love new months because they bring new colors.  Before you dig into your blue, please do me a favor.  Blue is usually everyones biggest pile of scraps.  It is really too much to deal with in a single month.  So take your blue and divide it into 3 stacks.  Yes 3.  One for bright blue, one for pastel and the other for teal or greenish hued shades.  Hopefully the piles will all be a little smaller now and more doable in a single month.  Start with the brights first.  This will be a sapphire blue month.  Enjoy!

Blue, blue, so happy it's you! Hmmmm will have to tug the bin of scraps out and sort....... maybe I can make a game of it and have the kids try it again.

Blue. Hmmm I guess I'm the odd ball as I don't have too much blue. I will Scrap-Dive and see what I can find. May 1st. Wow.

Boy, you've got that right!

I might try to finish last month's green and blue scraps quilt as my bright blues are sorely lacking.

Lynne said...

I would have divided the green-blues from the others anyway but I'd not thought of separating the pastels!

Do I have to (said in a whiny voice like a child!! LOL)

I have to wait till I finish teacher gifts before I can play with scraps. Hopefully I'll get to that before the end of the month.
