I've been looking forward to having the time to do The Rainbow Scrap Challenge where each month you use scraps in a specific colour. It's a fun challenge & it helps keep the scrap stash down. The colour for January is red.
I decided to use Bonnie Hunters Carolina Chain pattern from Addicted to Scraps as its all from 2" strips in light & dark colours. I made these give blocks:
I played around with a few different arrangements:
I do have more red scraps than this though & some of those are being used in the Table Scraps challenge which I'm working on getting finished for next week.
After that I worked on Rhododendron Trail. I still have a lot left to do but I find I can only trim blocks for a little while & then I need a break so my wrists don't get sore so I just do a bit of block trimming each morning & try and get the trimmed blocks sewn by the end of the day.
While I was looking for something else in my sewing room I found some 4" squares that would work for baby boys quilts and started joining them up as they won't take long to put together.
It's been a lovely weekend just sewing!
This week I need to do some 'work' decluttering and get rid of some books & resources I won't need anymore. I think I will just give them away to some junior colleagues. I've finished all the 'work' shredding which felt good and I'm plodding along with data entry tasks. Overall I'm on track to be all up to date before I leave and I'm still working from home which is good.
