Welcome to 2020

It is the first ScrapHappy Saturday of 2020.  I am so excited to get started on another year of loving and using all my scraps.  Bright and light greens came first this year and I have collected together everything I could find.
 The sprouts blocks are a continuation from last year.  I got red and yellow done before house hunting and moving took over my existence.  I think the greens make a nice addition to the collection.  I went ahead and did the math to decide that I needed 44 blocks total for 11 sprouts in 4 columns.  That means between 4 and 5 of each color this year.
I'm also doing more small projects this year, so I started off with these three zipper cased.  I still need to finish off the hand stitching at the bottom.  I have untangled and collected together earbuds for each of these already.  I used a tutorial from s.o.t.a.k. Handmade which is linked on the tutorials tab.  That tab has made it really handy to go back and find tutorials for projects I have made in the past.  I think there are more zipper cases and scrap storage bins in the plans for this year as well.

What are your plans for the new year?  There always seem to be carryover projects, but hopefully finishes from last year left you with some bandwidth to try out something new.
Here is my list so far
1. Sprouts blocks with 2.5 inch squares
2. Nine Carat diamonds with 2 inch squares
3. My new project this year will be soul searching blocks made from 1.5 inch strips.
4. Small projects
5. Strings
6. Possibly crumb blocks if there is time in any month.  Potentially collecting these for next year though.  I'm thinking of rainbow crumb stars.
Let me know what your list looks like so far

I am going to use Pat Sloan's free pattern, Traffic Jam, for my blocks this year. I have 1 green block half way done.

Happy 2020 Angela! Looks like you have some fun ideas on your rainbow list. I'm still thinking about a couple of new ones, carrying over several. Thanks for hostessing us again.

I plan to get started on a new RSC now that I have pretty much gotten my room cleaned back up but I have a stack of other things on my table to sew this week - I hope to get my green blocks done soon though and join in

Sara said...

I'm continuing 2 blocks from last year - string blocks and Ohio Stars. But I'm also doing Bead/Chandelier blocks and possibly some others if I feel inspired. I do enjoy following your RSC color choices each month to see what I have to work with.

That's a lot of projects! They'll be fun to work on, I'm sure. Happy 2020!

So glad you are continuing the grand RSC tradition in 2020!

So happy you're running RSC2020 this year, I'm happily joining in again. I think I'll be sewing granny squares from "Oh Scrap!" and maybe some hexi-log cabins. I've got a pattern for that somewhere .... Lol! Happy New Year, everyone!

I haven't decided yet what blocks I'm going to do, though I have several that I'm carrying over from previous years. I admit those chandelier bead blocks I've been seeing for the last year are awfully appealing!

I hope to finish everything green in my picture before the end of this month, and be ready for next month's color!
