Scrap Armada

Turns out I don't have that much in the way of purple scraps anymore. I have made a couple more postage stamp stars per this month's color palette for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge however.





Mostly I've been making more ships. My fleet has grown from this...


to this:


And yes, I broke away from the RSC palette to make a few other postage stamp stars. ;- )

What are the chances pink will be part of next month's scrap palette?


This block and these tulips...


say Happy Easter! to me. And Happy Easter to you too!

You can check out how others are using their purple scraps over at SoScrappy.

I'm looking forward to a new RSC color, much as I like purple...

Gorgeous pink block and tulips - I'm so envious, I can't grow them here! Happy Easter to you and your growing fleet :-)

It looks like your stars are going to sail away. Lots of lovely blocks. Happy Easter.

When I saw your sailboats, I just thought, "Wow!" That is going to be a fun quilt! Love your pink postage stamp star, too. So pretty!

Are there really 37 two-masted ships in Mt. Vernon? Living in WI now, I only made three in two days, trying to not set a record yet. Of course, mine are bigger blocks, 6.5 inches, but smaller boats, like on our Lake Monona. No sleeping on board. No monkeys and bananas yet. Ask Gayle what awful thing is happening to these poor boats overrun with monkeys.

P.S. Your pink block and the photo say it all. Happy Easter to all of you from the land of ice storm and no daffodils yet.

No luck on pink for next month, but your boats are quite an fleet.

Even better with more ships! I love your stars, too, though.
