This month's Rainbow Scrap Challenge color is brown. I love brown. Most of my clothes are brown. Strangely enough...most of my quilts are not.
I made two 49 patch postage stamp brown/cream blocks to add to my collection which now numbers 9 and finished off a black and white one left over from last month. Forgot to count how many black/white I have in total now.
And...for the yucky prize...here are two brown scraps which are going to remain brown scraps. I attempted to make a couple of baskets from the scraps but they got too stretched out of shape and the sides don't have enough seam allowance one one side so I pitched them into the wonky block scrap file. Maybe I'll try again later but make them in a different way than the instructions state. I was going to embroider on chain stitch handles in brown perle #5 but, like I said...yucky. Glad I only wasted scraps on them.
Hope to get more brown scraps used up next week. Had to take my 9 year old granddaughter shopping today and I hate shopping. Her birthday was on Halloween. I never know what to buy anymore so shopping spree it was so she could pick out her own gifts. I get to do it all again in 5 weeks when my other granddaughter turns 9 on Pearl Harbor Day.
What are some other ladies doing with their brown scraps this week? You won't find out unless you get over to the Rainbow Scrap Challenge linky party at SoScrappy. I'll probably go visit all the blogs after dinner or tomorrow morning with coffee in hand. I promised the DGDs I'd play a few games later on.
