Rainbow Scrap Challenge

 The colour for this months scrap challenge is teal. I'm currently  using teal in my Blue Ridge Beauty and in my Sweet Dreams quilt so I only had a small amount of scraps to use up.

I'm enjoying making these blocks. Its a simple, relaxing pattern to put together.





I've only got five weeks to go at work. Mentally I feel like I've already left. I'm regularly sleeping 8-9 hours a night now after years of living on 6 hours sleep plus weekend naps. It's so nice not to wake up thinking about work, instead I wake up thinking about retirement, sewing, gardening, travelling etc.

  1. Wishing you a very happy retirement, those last few weeks will surely go by very quickly. Do hope your company gives you a great send off.

    1. yes, I think now that I've handed back the management duties I was doing last year it feels like I'm finished. It certainly less stressful now that I'm just finalising things.

  4. Hope you enjoy your retirement. Pretty blocks - the little daffodils are very apt for my garden at present as they are starting to open out.

    1. I love the start of spring in the garden. I've just ordered some bulbs to plant for spring as we are going into Autumn here.

    1. I'm really looking forward to not having to rush to get ready for work in the mornings, just to get up, go for a walk, take as long as I like over breakfast & a shower, enjoy sitting out on the verandah with a cuppa. Slowing down first and then giving the house a good declutter I think.
