May is here! It is time for a deep breath and a fresh start. The new color inspiration is an evergreen forest. Think of a soft loden green tree with a dusty brown trunk. Vicki Welsh designed this group of hand dyed fabrics to inspire us all this month. Check back on Saturday for a giveaway of a different bundle of her fabric.
While working on the last of my orange blocks yesterday, I got sidetracked with my circles. All the orange blocks were finished up on my trip last week to Disney. Having a stack of precut circles ready to stitch during down moments was a nice way to be productive while waiting for the next round of competition. Now I've got a good start on the preparation of the green blocks, so May is off to a good start.
Before I get too carried away with my own projects though, I have promised to have at least part of a t-shirt ready for graduation. Through a process of negotiation, we agreed that I would sew the blocks together if she did the prep work. So earlier this week, she brought a stack of rough cut, stabilized shirts, ready to trim and sew. She even included the fabric for sashing and backing, so the time will be much less than starting from scratch.
Wow I was waiting for some green!!
Hurray for green! I'm ready!
Though I admit I'll miss orange... 8)
Yay for getting someone else to do the t-shirt stabilization - brilliant!
I'm overrun with every shade of green imaginable. Now to see what UFO will qualify to work on this month!
Green is a great color. Maybe my favorite. Good luck with all the t shirt stitching.
Green is just perfect, and one of my favorites. And the nature is light green here just now, so everything is prepared.
Love that photo of the circles cut out and ready for some hand stitching... enjoy!
You have to be so happy to have a free weekend for a change ! :)
Loving green! Thanks =)
I have too many projects on the go I am not doing will making rainbow blocks. I did manage to make a couple purple blocks and a couple orange blocks. Hopefully I will find time to make some green blocks.
There's nothing like having some circles ready to go for an on the go project is there! They look great :)
GO GREEN! lol. I will be looking forward to the block size and your pattern for the month. Thank you.
DH just mowned the lawn this morning. I love the smell of fresh cut grass. So it's nice to play with my green fabric today. Thanks Angela.
I love all those projects. Enjoy your stitching.
Looks like I finished up Green Season a couple of weeks too soon -- no worries, I have LOTS of green scraps for my other projects!
Ooh, green! I already have my pink and green quilt already cut, so I can get to sewing right away.
Lovely bundle of greens there. Such pretty colours.
Who doesn't like to go green!
what's the 2nd color with the green ? or do you say that later?
I'm hoping to make some green blocks this month. :-) Have fun with the t-shirt project.
I'm looking forward to playing with some green. It's certainly greened up around here. Hopefully your end of school schedule for May won't be as hectic as it was last month.
Crossing my fingers that I can find time to work with the color of the month! So many projects that must be done this month.
I only just got a smidgen of orange done.
