Scrappy Saturday Green

There are 5 Saturdays in May, so we will have an extra week to enjoy working with our green scraps. To see what other quilters are sewing with their scraps, hop over to SoScrappy.
I have been cutting and organizing, and have started to applique some pumpkin seed blocks. I cut 16 different green seeds, which will make 4 blocks to add to the seed collection.
See those little green scissors there? I bought them for my friend Barb, but I haven't seen her recently, so I just started using them. If I don't see her soon, I might "forget" they were purchased for her, and I might claim them for myself... they are so cute and perfect for snipping green threads!
I have a lot of hand stitching ready for Slow Sunday Stitching tomorrow... drop by and stitch with us!

Trying to match scissors to the color of the month sounds like a dangerous idea! Having just the right pair does make things more fun though. Lovely pumpkin seeds to add to your growing collection.

I bought some pink polka dot scissors for my granddaughter's sewing box. I thought they were cute.

Did you draft that pumpkin seed pattern yourself?

Seeing you do these applique blocks leaves me feeling very alone. : )
You are making wonderful little orange peels and in a way, I'm jealous (but not enough to start applique).
