A very scrappy Saturday

I started the morning by finishing up the pin basting of my UFO #9, the black, white and aqua one that will become my brothers birthday gift. 
Then on to more fun sewing.....


This months scrap color at SoScrappy is Aqua...or sea green ...or something that's not blue and not green. Not a problem! That's probably what I have the most of after blue. I made up one scrap jar star block to add to my one reserved purple block from January....I'll have a purple scrap jar quilt and a rainbow quilt. 
I didn't get to making my aqua spool block yet but that's because I can't find the darn things. I cleaned up after all the purple blocks ....then someone must have broken in and LOST my pieces! ;) hopefully the navy strips will show up again...


So as I stitched I noticed my strip jar for my crocheted rug was overflowing....

Stitched those into a long strip and rolled into a HUGE ball. That will give me a nice project to do as I watch TV.


This is the other project that got a little attention...I made a few more blocks. I'm up to 18 and figure I will need 42. 
So with all this sewing I needed a reward...I took a short break and visited the local quilt shop. I didn't buy much...just some of these adorable kitties.

Those kittens are adorable. Love the scrap jar star -- such pretty shades of teal.
