ScrapHappy Saturday - Green with Envy

 I found some sewing time last weekend to frame out 10 nine patches.  They are already sewn into a row and ready to go.  I won't put the rows together until all the colors are done though, so I can decide on layouts.  These went together super fast because I always have some 2 inch squares working through as leaders and enders.
Then, still going strong, I put the star points on these repurposed postage stamp blocks.  I had planned on ten of these as well, but it worked out to 9 instead.
It was nice to have plenty of sewing time this weekend, because today I am in Houston with Anna at ISWEEEP which is The International Sustainable World (Energy, Engineering, and Environment) Project Olympiad. Quite a name, but it is an environmental themed science fair and Anna got a bid during our local science fair.  She is so very excited.  We will have field trips to a science museum and the space center while we are there, and while the judging is going on today I will be on a walking tour of the city.  I did bring along my orange peels though, so maybe I will get a bit of handwork done on the plane.  How are your dark and bright greens coming along?  Use misterlinky to share with us all.

The star corners transform an otherwise plain 16 patch into something terrific! And the frames on the 9 patches look great too.

Good luck to Anna today at the Science Fair. The Science Museum in Houston is really nice and NASA is a lot of fun too. Though Drama Teen always preferred the Science Museum when given a choice.

Kudos to Anna. Hope the weather cooperates while you're in TX and traveling.

Hi. I am trying to find the blog posts from March and April for "Cleaning up Yellow" and "Cleaning up Purple." Could you please direct me to these posts if they exist? I don't want to miss anything for the RSC15 Sampler. Thank you so much!
