Rainbow Scrap Challenge in Cafe

Just under the wire I got these brown blocks made.  Thought I was all caught up for October (which has been a whirlwind fast month!) and then I realized I haven't made my Betty's Choice blocks!  So I am hoping to whip those up shortly!  Linking up with Angela over at SoScrappy!
edit  Here are the Betty's Choice blocks too!

I don't think I mentioned that while I was at quilt camp my oldest son Coleman and his new wife Chelsea decided (randomly with no plan) to put some of their stuff in their semi reliable van (puppy and cat included) and move to Arizona.  About three weeks ago we let a friend who is down on his luck move into Coleman's room and so now Coleman and wife are in my spare Packer room which is mostly used to wrapping gifts and storing sewing machines unless we have company.  My house looks like a bomb went off as we relocate tons of stuff and I am now wrapping gifts on my bed again.  The friend is supposed to leave in March or so and I am secretly hoping that happens sooner so we can move these two downstairs.  Anyway life is stressful and I am trying to stay focused on eating right and exercising!  I did go on my first hike all alone this past week, and I lost two pounds!
I am so happy to be getting back to hiking now that it is cooler again!  Tonight we are going to meet up with the little ones and walk around Trick or Treating for a bit.  Will be fun to see them all in costume.

I thought I'd been living in a madhouse this last week, but your domestic arrangements sound even more stressful. Keep smiling and keep walking.
Your blocks look good, so I hope you manage to find time to sew among all the domestic upheaval!

Oh my! Sounds like a full house. Walking may be just the thing to refocus and distress!

Your blocks look great even if the house doesn't. Hurray for the pounds lost - don't give up the fight!

Congrats on getting those blocks done in all that madhouse, and on the weight loss. You can do two things at once by hiking, burning calories and getting some alone time. God bless you.

Sounds like your house is a little bit overly full right now, but I'm sure things will be back to normal soon. Great progress on your blocks. Way to go on loosing 2 more pounds! What a great year it has been for you on that front.

Yikes! I'm surprised you finished anything! Congrats on weight loss too.

Bless your heart. I can imagine you are experiencing some stress. Hopefully thinks will be back to normal in the spring.
Congratulations on the two pounds. You go girl!
