Green, Green, Green

Wednesday morning before work I managed to ride my bike for thirty minutes (trying to do this daily, but now and then I cannot manage it since I like to sleep as late as possible!) and then I quickly sewed up Shoo Fly and Thrifty so I could get caught up on the Rainbow Scrap Challenge Sampler blocks that were posted while I was in Vegas.  I love that each of these blocks is usually sewn up in under 15 minutes, even with the cutting.  Really makes me think I can sneak in a little sewing here and there, rather than wait for the weekend!
Shoo Fly

I have done a few leaders and enders lozenges in green as well and the wall is growing green!
I have a big pot of chili on the stove to eat this weekend and I am so happy I can just stay home and sew, sew, sew!  I also have a Quilt Cam to catch up on from when I was in Vegas!  Really looking forward to relaxing at home :)

Great greens Andee. I love the background fabric in your Shoofly block. I think I've done all my Saturday jobs... maybe it's time I headed to the studio to do some sewing.

Love the scrap blocks so far. THose lozenge blocks are great. All the piecing I do and I've never thought of doing a leader/ender project. Puts thinking cap on xxx

What a great job of keeping up with the sampler blocks even with a trip to take you away from your machine. Enjoy your chili! I'll try to come up with a few more blocks to keep you busy while it simmers.

I still have to watch quilt cam too. Might do it today when I do the next green sampler blocks.
You are doing a great job

Your green wall is looking GOOD!

You're an animal! I can't believe the amount of blocks you've been churning out lately. must have an ample supply of scraps, me thinks! ;)

The weather is finally reached "gorgeous" up here---I can't remember the last Memorial Weekend that has been Picture-Perfect!!!!

And CONGRATS on your continual progress and success with biking/walking/elliptical! Truly, truly--wonderful accomplishments.
