ScrapHappy Saturday - Happy Chaos
Then we drove over the eastern part of the state to look at some properties. Kurt is working more out of the DC office and we are talking about having a home base nearby. We traipsed around several properties in West Virginia on our own because our realtor does not have a license to sell properties there. We found one with an amazing view, but it is quite far out from the city and the neighborhood was... rustic. Then the next day we were scheduled to meet with the relator that Kurt had been working with online. After several hours in his office sifting through the options we were finally off! We had primarily been talking about property on which to build a log cabin like house. Existing houses pop up from time to time, but always seem to disappear before we can have look. We did add one house to the list though, because it had an ideal location and we wanted a baseline for comparison. That was the one that we fell in love with of course! 10 acres nestled on the edge of the Shenandoah National Park with a little house and plenty of space outside. We are working through the paperwork now and nothing is final. Wish us luck though. We put in several bids on different places before successfully buying our beach home. Hopefully we won't have to go through all of that again.
Clearly there was lots of driving time between all those activities for hand sewing of hexies. I am so happy to be back home with my machine again though and have almost finished off my yellow blocks for the month. Misterlinky is below. Please share your yellow progress with us all.

ScrapHappy Yellow Begins
And so begins a new month at Rainbow Scrap Challenge. I was happy to make enough progress with aqua to not feel bad putting it away to make room for the yellow and gold parade. It is utterly a coincidence that the colors of the Uranian Flag are yellow and blue, but I plan to lean into that this month. I am thinking a nice blue string block with a yellow Dresden Plate would be a fun idea to play with. I will keep you posted of course! I had just gotten to the point where all the yellow was out and starting to get organized when Anna decided to come home from college early for this weekends trip to Rhode Island which was a replacement for last weekends trip to Rhode Island which was cancelled due to snow. She is there now, with her dad and I am getting regular updates on all the news. Sydney is in Orlando at another science fair. I drove her over last night for the set-up and she insisted that she was perfectly capable of driving herself there today. She is also reporting in regularly with status updates.
So other than keeping tabs on everyone else, it should be a calm weekend to sew. I found a nice stack of yellow HST unit all ready for the Carpenter's Star block. I might try another version with a blue center star. This is a huge block and would make a nice table topper on its own.
I hope that you are all looking forward to digging into yellow for March. Misterlnky is below, please share your projects and plans with us all.

The March colors are yellow and gold. Something bright and full of sunshine to welcome in spring and chase away the winter gloom.
