Sunny Yellow

I think today was to be our warmest day of the last few 6 months. We did see a bit of sun but we had some wind too. Lots of melting of snow but we still have lots of snow left. Wet and muddy all over. The horses are muddy brown in colour. Brown is kind of the real colour outside this month. 

Yellow and Gold 

Yellow is the Rainbow Scrap Challenge 2018 of the month. 
I did a ton of sorting and trimming down my yellow scraps. The box is tidy and well sorted. I made all kinds of yellow triangles to use in my sampler blocks and then in pinwheels.

I got my 3 large 10" square sampler blocks done. 

I then started to lay out the smaller block 7"square. I just did not get them sewn today. Maybe early next week. 

Next weekend I have retreat. 
So today I sorted my UFO projects. 
I had trouble finding one I really wanted to take. Well at 5 pm I found it. Good! I can take it. I have a list with at least 6 projects. 4 are packed in there bags ready to go and one is a rainbow scrap challenge quilt I hope to finish the top on the weekend. 
I also have plans for one new project. I still have to sort fabric for it. Maybe I will do some cutting for it this week.
