ScrapHappy Saturday - Home Again


We had fun and got some work done in Virginia last week, but now it is back home again to a different kind of work.  

The sun is rising later with daylight saving, but I try to peek at it on the drive to work.   Not much sewing time this week with Kurt out of town and evening meetings for me, but hopefully I can make up for lost time this weekend.  There is always laundry and the house could use some love, but my green scraps are sadly calling me for some attention.

ScrapHappy Saturday - Spring Green

I really thought that we would be seeing lots of greens for spring in Virginia this week. It is still quite chilly most days though and we instead saw a spring snow! We are all out as soon as it warms up each day though. For the most part we have been cleaning up. We have a new UTV to help in the hauling of heavy things and have been having lots of fun driving around the property in circles grabbing up mulch, logs or abandoned appliances from years gone by.  We will rent a dumpster and have it all hauled away at once this summer.   Anna has come up for the weekend and is hoping to plant something in the garden.   No sewing right now, but I am hoping to enjoy the greens that you all have to share.

ScrapHappy Saturday - Spring Break Edition

 Ah, for the love of vacations!  So nice to have a nice change of pace to look forward to.  Long happy days of nothing await.  I hope you have great green blocks to share.  Misterlinky is below.

Mini Block Mani


I got a bit behind in the Mini Mania blocks last month.  I thought that February would be calm in the new job, but it didn't work out that way.  Still lots of lovely weekends to enjoy though and I am putting together so many tiny happy bits of fabric today.  I am getting a haircut this morning and then Anna is coming home for spring break!  She really wants to see the boyfriend more than us, but as she wasn't planning on coming home at all, it is still a win.  Next week is spring break for the rest of us.  I am very much looking forward to a change of scenery. It is hard to argue with the 70 and balmy ocean breeze, but working outside instead of on the computer will be refreshing.  Check out the mini mania page for block names and pattern sources if you are interested.

ScrapHappy Saturday - Its Green for March

 Excited to look at a new color, though I still have bits of pink to finish up.  How are your green scraps looking so far?
