 I've been working on my monthly challenges.  I have three that I when a new month comes I try to get those blocks done.  I'm doing the National Day Calendar again this year.  May 2nd is National Tuna Day.  

The color for the RSC Rainbow Challenge, the color for May is Sage/Forest Green.  I'm making birdhouses for this.  So I'll be pulling green fabrics today for that.  This is the birdhouse I'll be working on.

And the Color Challenge, I'm doing Mason Jars, the little half pint ones.  I'm making spices that go into these jars.  The spice this month is Basil.  For this challenge I'm making the jars the color and adding the spice leaf to it.

I got a few more of the Hand Picked blocks I need to start cutting 9 patches.

You ever bag or box up scraps for a project??  I found this one in a box and for the life of me, I can't remember what it was for.  But I'll figure it out eventually!😉

I've been trying to read at least 50 pages in a book every day.  The book I'm currently reading is What the Wind Knows by Amy Harmon.  It's getting interesting now, so hopefully it will hold my attention. Do you read?  What are you reading now?  


{Anne Gallagher grew up enchanted by her grandfather’s stories of Ireland. Heartbroken at his death, she travels to his childhood home to spread his ashes. There, overcome with memories of the man she adored and consumed by a history she never knew, she is pulled into another time.

The Ireland of 1921, teetering on the edge of war, is a dangerous place in which to awaken. But there Anne finds herself, hurt, disoriented, and under the care of Dr. Thomas Smith, guardian to a young boy who is oddly familiar. Mistaken for the boy’s long-missing mother, Anne adopts her identity, convinced the woman’s disappearance is connected to her own.

As tensions rise, Thomas joins the struggle for Ireland’s independence and Anne is drawn into the conflict beside him. Caught between history and her heart, she must decide whether she’s willing to let go of the life she knew for a love she never thought she’d find. But in the end, is the choice actually hers to make?}

  1. Your birdhouses and Mason jars make really great blocks! That sounds like a good book, too. Enjoy your reading this week!

  2. Hi Sherrie! Progress is a great thing! What a fun block for the RSC challenge. I love the bird house block and the mason jars - those are fun, too. I do bag/box up project fabrics together and have a few that I don't know what they're for. I've learned to include a note with the pattern in the box now. Happy Mother's Day. Enjoy the weekend. {{Hugs}} ~smile~ Roseanne

  3. That tuna block is cute! Love your handpicked flowers, and the mason jars and spices are very pretty.
    Thanks for the synopsis of the book you're reading. I just downloaded it free from Kindle Unlimited - yay! I'm reading The Rescue by Nicholas Sparks. It is a pleasant read but nothing really exciting so far.

  4. Thanks for the book mention; I just downloaded it free from Amazon. Reading on the Kindle is hard on my eyes, but hard to resist at the price. Just finished borrowed print version of The Nightingale, which was excellent.

  5. I would much rather sew than read mostly because my husband never shuts up long enough for me to read a paragraph of anything. Your jar block is great, well all of your projects are. Hope you figure out what that fabric was supposed to be. Thank you for linking up to Put your foot down.


Thanks for stopping by my place. Have a great day!!
