Projects Progress & Happy St. Patrick’s Day

Projects Progress ( or lack thereof on some :)

While I’ve been good about keeping up with some of my projects that follow the Rainbow Scrap Challenge color of the month, I’ve lagged behind on this one.  Back in January I chose a block and decided to title the project as “Blend”.

I wanted to do three blocks per month and in the collage below you can see that I made my blue ones.  ( I just pulled the collage from a January post )

Well, the RSC color for February was purple, and March’s is green. And while I did work on some purple and green things, they were not any “Blend” blocks.

Finally I have gotten around to a purple one and quite late, though I had the fabric pulled for three of them ages ago.  And what’s been distracting me so much is the EPP Starflowers project that I’d started on a whim and they are addictive for some reason.  I completed a gold one, have begun connecting some more and am working on another. I’ll probably be working on finishing that one up and possibly more connecting work for Slow Sunday Stitching. 

Still, I have some GREEN for this week as well :)   While 3 of the grands had an in-service day at school on Friday, these two did not. Happy St. Patrick’s Day.  Photo courtesy of my DIL prior to school on Friday morning :)

Meanwhile this week we had cold weather and bands of snow showers moving in every day but today! I thought it would be fun to take a look back to other March posts from around this time and found quite the variety in weather and events :)

I found everything from heavy snowfalls to spring weather, puppies to kids to quilting to pretty birds. It was a nice visit.  You can view it all here : THIS MARCH AND A LOOK BACK.

    Hello, Happy St. Patrick’s Day! The grandkids are cute and I love the kitty and sweet dove. Your quilt projects and blocks are beautiful. Enjoy your day and weekend!

    Cute kids, as always!
    Usually, purple and violet do not appeal to me, but I love your choices in the blocks you show here. I like that little wink of yellow and the vivid mix of textures!

  3. Happy St Patrick’s Day! Enjoy the green!

  4. Happy St Patrick’s Day! Cute grands! and lovely pix of the blocks, the bird and that adorable kitten. Life is good, isn’t it?

  5. I like your Blend block in purple – glad you found time to make one this week! I can see why the Starflower blocks would be addicting – they make lots of fun shapes depending on how you look at them, and I bet it all changes each time you add a flower.

  10. Quilt projects are lovely, but it’s the photo of the grands that really made me smile. You’re a lucky woman. :-)
