That said, I do have a few things to share! First off are my Rainbow Scrappy Challenge blocks. Angela chose blue for the blocks made for January. I decided to use the Pieced Tulips tutorial from Marcia Hohn's Quilter's Cache website. The blocks finish at 9", so I decided to make 5 for each month - and I'm finding it a bit more challenging than I expected! It doesn't help that I miscounted when cutting the background blocks, and I didn't have enough cut - but that's taken care of easily enough. I did manage to make two blocks so far, and a third one is almost done. I chose black for the 5 contrast squares for every block - I realized that black is probably the only colour that we won't be assigned to make, so there would always be contrast between it and the block colour. Well, maybe... Dark blue and black look quite a bit alike! You'll see what I mean when I get that block finished and posted. Here are the two I finished:
The "Dancing Plus" blocks were made for the Quilty 365 challenge too - here are this week's blocks:
And finally, a friend had a birthday, and I made a card:
I used Stampin' Up's "Lovely as a Tree" stamp set. The card looks more complicated to make than it actually is - the hardest part was pushing the little brads through the ribbon!
I'll post my final 3 blue RSC blocks in a day or two - I hope! I'm going to post my first two on the SoScrappy page.
