2016 was a year of joining several sew-a-longs, participating in the Rainbow Scrap Challenge, and starting several projects on my own. Towards the end of 2016 I said that I did not want to work on anything new in 2017.
I was having an inner debate at the beginning of January in regards to the RSC17. I did not want to start anything new, and I did not want to make anything new that was bright.
Last year I worked on these two RSC16 projects and one of them still requires a piano key border and the other I am undecided about thus far, so it didn’t make sense to me to start another new, rainbow-y, brightly colored project.
This year I want to focus on finishing some things, and revisiting others.
Yet, I’ve gotten used to joining in the Rainbow Scrap Challenge fun at Angelas’ and I didn’t want to miss out.
I took a look at my UFO list and decided that I could easily follow the color-of-the-month suggestion on a few of the projects on the list. Yay…so Angela’s new button was added to my sidebar and I’m in again this year :)
I will follow the color of the month suggestion for further Little Baskets as well as for more appliqued Airship Propeller Blocks. I also included this applique border in the mix, because I have to start prepping for another one ( my Flower Basket Medallion project ) .
When I cut out the little baskets ( starch, iron and freezer paper prep ) there are small scraps that are perfect for berries, and given that this Flower Basket project includes leaves of many colors I can prep a few purple leaves this month as well as the berries.
I have worked on some prep this week and have a bit more to do before I settle down to beginning my applique.
