Scrappy Saturday

Yellow is the colour for the month of March at the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. That just happens to be one of the colours for my guild challenge, so that works out perfectly for me!

Today I am appliqueing little yellow circles/moons onto black and white HST blocks.
I was inspired by a RSC project that Julie is making - you can see her blocks here.



I recently bought myself a new Jansjo LED lampI first saw this light on Bonnie Hunter's blog, and have been on the lookout for one ever since. I finally found them, bought two (one for me and one for a friend) and just love it! It has a solid base so it won't tip over. It has a long flexible neck for easy positioning, and it has a focused pool of light which is perfect for hand stitching. 

I am really enjoying using up some of my yellow scraps under the supervision of my quilting angel. She was a gift from my friend Susan.






To see what the quilters are sewing with their yellow scraps this week, hop over to SoScrappy.

  18. I love that lamp too - depending on the project it is so easy to bend it right where I need to see. I have a spare ready for action since I don't get to IKEA that often. It's a must have for me.
