Rainbow Scrap Challenge

RSC for March was the colour RED. Being a lover of gorgeous red I had quite a few choices.  So the 4 patch is done and this month it was a butterfly applique.
And then there were 3!
Today I ventured down to my friend Gayes for stitching group. We were a small group but had a very nice time just the same....delicious fare and lots of chat. I did sew.....lots of little hexies. I am still adding to my version of my Splendid Sampler quilt. I am making the hexies out of all those leftovers in my French General fabric scraps. While we were there.....
We had a couple of little Magpie visitors, 2 adults and 1 juvenile......who sqwarked the whole time lol! It seems parents of all varieties have whingey kids!
They are amongst my favourite Aussies, so I was thrilled with the visit and they weren't afraid of us at all! I suspect that they get tidbits from humans. It's always lovely when nature decides to interact with you......even for a few moments.
We have had some very heavy showers here.....yes!
Ahhh! Comfortable sleep tonight!

  1. Lucky you.......our skies clouded over, but only a few miserable mls fell! Young magpies are great whingers, aren't they? Your colour blocks will make a lovely rainbow.

  2. It is wonderful to see some rain, and so soothing at night! What cute maggies there, and we have a baby lorikeet here which visits with Mum and Dad, and it is the whingiest kid ever, so funny. You hexies are looking so pretty. xx

  4. Unfortunately, the rain has avoided Ipswich, apart from a couple of showers. The cooler days are welcome though. I have a fair bit of bird life around my place,there's a large gum tree not far away which regularly hosts a big flock of cockatoos...very noisy when they all leave at the same time!

  6. Your RSC blocks are looking good together. Interesting thst you welcome the magpies! They are not so popular here, far too many of them really. I am always intrigued though by the 'One for sorrow, One for joy' poem though. xx

  8. Love the blocks. Not much rain in Ipswich but the little we have has been good for my grass & garden. I had a magpie sitting on my stair railing the other morning. Another few steps & he would've been inside .:). Never had one that close before. Hugs,xx

  18. Love the rainbow scrap challenge blocks, cute bird and butterfly. One of our neighbours years ago had a magpie family who came and tapped on the kitchen window each day to be fed. The young ones sure are nosiy though!! Your hexies are gorgeous.
