Finally! After two days with more hours asleep than awake and more liquids leaving the body than entering I was able to get up and sew a little this morning. Thank goodness. I'm rarely sick but when I am it seems to hit hard. Those darned grandkids must have left me a few cooties after their visit last weekend.
Anyway...brown is the Rainbow Scrap Challenge color of the month. I made some 3 inch butterfly and 3 inch spool blocks from my brown scraps. It's the same block...just different color placement. That about uses up my 1.5 inch scraps. But I have lots of brown crumbs and brown 2.5 inch scraps that I need to get used up. That won't be next week because I'm going to be visiting my brother who leaves near Nashville. His son, my nephew, and family will be returning home from Germany where he has been stationed for several years. A lot of family will be there to welcome them home. It's a 9 hour trip so I need to round up 18 hours worth of hand work and/or books to read.
For some brown scrap inspiration visit Scrap Happy Saturday at SoScrappy. You will definitely see some things that brown can do for you!
