Hopefully you have all been busy with your rainbow scraps. I've got just two more jam packed weeks and then sewing time should be back on the agenda.

I've gone crazy making randomly happy mixed crumb blocks. Most of my scraps get sorted by color, but anything that can't live happily in a color drawer ends up in the mixed bin. I'm doing my best to get that bucket all emptied out this month. So far I just dumped it all out and started sewing anything together that was about the same size. Those bits kept growing until they were big enough to get trimmed up to either 5 inches for 6.5 inches. Maybe they will get sorted into pastels and brights? Maybe they will just all learn to live happily together. Time will tell.

Then there are the oddballs that are truly mixed up. Floral prints, multicolor stripes, novelties!
This month I am going to pull them all out and try to make something. Even if they all end up in multicolor crumb blocks, I want them used up and out of the way. Challenging? Perhaps, but its going to be fun trying!

In honor of April Fool's day tomorrow, we are going to try to take a whack at our multicolor fabric.
I know this will be a challenging month for some, but I also know that I have a huge drawer of oddballs that I would love to do something fabulous with. Good luck!

The laundry is done and it is time to shift into school work. I think I'll just sit here first and procrastinate a bit longer while I admire my quilt. Sydney is off at lacrosse practice while Anna and Ryan are both working on makeup work for school. Anna's is from being gone for her concussion, and Ryan's is from being gone for his robotics tournament. Going to school is so much easier than being absent.
First though, I'm linking up with Oh Scrap. Because nothing could be scrappier than a quilt made primarily from 1 inch strips.

The weeks just get busier and busier right now. All good though, so I am thankful. Ryan's robotics team qualified for worlds! He is off again this weekend to another tournament, the bus has been taking back and forth to Orlando each day. Unfortunately, that means that I am waking up at 4:30 automatically now. Anna is recovered from her concussion. She isn't allowed to play again yet, but she is working her way through the protocol and should be fully cleared by the end of next week. School is always a rush of course. The quarter ends on Tuesday so all the end of term odds and ends are getting cleared off my desk now. I'm sure there is lots more, but all this typing is cutting into my sewing time. Lots and lots of red nine patches made it through last weekend as I worked on the tiny nine patches. If I can get some framed out today then I can add another row to that quilt.
What have you been up to in the sewing room? Misterlinky is below. Be sure to share with us all.

I'm home today with Anna while Kurt and Sydney are volunteering at a Lego Robotic tournament and Ryan is off at a Robotic competition of the big boy kind. Anna thinks she is all better, but she isn't of course, and getting her to rest is not an easy task.
