Scrappy Saturday and Snowman Sunday

With a bit of wintery weather (wet but warm) I was happy to bunker down in The Palace and spend the weekend stitching.
On Saturday I did some Scrap Busting —
A few more cats
My little pile is growing. It will be a small quilt but I haven't yet decided
exactly what size I want it.
A few more 9-patches for my Omigosh quilt.
These are my Leader and Ender project, another pile is growing
And another star block
Over at Angela's soscrappy blog this month the scrap colour was teal/blues with a touch of green so I have a few less scraps in this colour now :-)

Sunday, being a new day, was time to focus on my OMG project - my One Monthly Goal for June was to complete a second block in my Quiltmania Snowflake Lane hanging.
Out came my #40 weight Aurifil for the applique.
Block Two completed!!!
Isn't he a sweetie?
Block 1 and 2 side by side. Hopefully next month block 3 will be with them!
It's great to be moving on this project again - thanks to Heidi and the little push of making that One Monthly Goal :-). *Here* is the latest linkup to see who else met their goal!. Wonder what I will work on next month...?

I've started the new week feeling content and, with winter still going on outside, I'm hoping to squeeze a few more sewing sessions in ♥
Have a good week - happy stitching,

I LOVE those little snowmen. Your blocks all look great. Those cats are going to be fun when they all get together. I love seeing all the scraps used in quilts. The more the better.

QUILTING IS BLISSFUL, DI said...

Oh what lovely blocks you have made--
can't wait to see the cat one finished one of these days--

Love it all, but the snowman block is super cute!

Lots of fun details on your snowmen. I printed off a cat pattern like that way back when. Never got to it. Yours is coming right along.

Sue said...

Love all your work Raewyn. I have the Omigosh pattern... maybe you could inspire me and we could make it along with each other? :-)

LOTS of wonderful things going on at your house! Those cats are on my list of things to do. I don't think I have the fabric I want to use. Maybe I will look for some brights as I go around the shops for Row by Row this summer. I don't need to buy more someday fabric, just things I actually have a use for! I love those stars more each time I see them. The snowman ornament block is adorable, too. Do you have a winter that truly gets cold?

Lots of beautiful blocks Raewyn, you had a great sewing day! Your snowmen are just gorgeous, looking forward to seeing block three!

Karen S said...

I am loving all the scrappy blocks. I am tempted to work on the cat one's too.
And the snowmen blocks look so good together. Love the fabric combinations there.
You have achieved a lot with all these projects.

Here summer is in full swing - hot and humid with high heat indexes and UV levels. SO -- I do what I did when I lived in the northern states, I stay inside with the air conditioning. Your blocks are all so neat and tidy in their boxes - what wonderful quilts they will make! And you appliqué is gorgeous.

Fiona said...
