Friday Night with Friends and RSC

Great to be joining in again with FNwF - thanks to Cheryll for inviting us round even though she is off on her travels! You can see what everyone got up to here.


I started off my afternoon by machining up these two blocks for April and May's Rainbow Scrap Challenge.



Yellow is almost non existent in my fabric stash but I managed to find these gold and mustards in my box of squares so they will do. The selection of pinks was a little better. I am linking up with Scrap Happy Saturday

Next up were some swap hexies - I finished one during the afternoon and the other in the evening.

 
After a cold spell last weekend it has started to warm up again and we were able to spend some time in the garden yesterday afternoon planting out our tomato, pepper and aubergine plants. They all had to be mulched with grass cuttings too to try and stop the soil drying out too quickly around them.
 
Come the evening I was very happy just to sit and sew. After finishing off the second hexie flower I cracked on with my next pink block.
 
 
And am very happy with the progress made.

Thanks Chez for an enjoyable FNwF's.

Loving your pink blocks ...... what do you do with all your swap hexies? You've been swapping for a long time now ......... what do you plan to make with all the scrap happy blocks? Good progress in the garden ....... we call peppers capsicums over here, I'm going to have to look up what an aubergene is to see if maybe we have a different name for that too lol. Even between Victoria and QUeensland , the 2 states at opposite ends of Australia we have different names for things like cantaloupe in Vic and it's rockmelon in Qld, potato cakes in Vic and potato scallops in Qld lol

Your blocks are very pretty, the golds look great as do the pinks. Rather you than me on the hexies - maybe one day. Glad you got to do some gardening, nothing better than growing your own veggies. :)

It sounds like you squeezed it all in over the weekend! Niec to hear the weather is good enough for planting and a nice nit of sewing. It does seem a very painless way to quilt a quilt doesn't it? One small block at a time...very nice!

Sue (this n that) a dit…

Hello Lin, I liked the gold and mustard additions to your blocks - they add another interest.
After a nice day gardening, what better than to sit and do something relaxing and creative.
Cheers! xx

Very pretty blocks, Lin.

Judy a dit…

Lots of wonderful sewing! I like the yellow block, the gold color appeals to me quite a bit. Your gardening sounds quite nice, and isn't lovely to be able to be out and about once again, tending green things?

Happy sewing,
Judy
