Blue Green and light blues for June

Here's the Crayon Reveal
Regular blues on the right were shown for January. Blue greens on the left are shown in the lower picture.

Shown on the left are Periwinkle, Robin's Egg Blue and Cadet Blue (kind of a greyed color).
On the right are Sky Blue, Turquoise Blue and Blue Green. So now that you know, Sew On.
May 30 is the next Saturday and still a green showing.
I'm glad Angela chose blue green and light blues. They remind me of the cloudless sky... a nearly summer thing.

It's So Nice to Have Fronds

It is so nice to have friends... nobody will deny that phrase. I'm so happy to have Blogger Friends, too. Thanks so much for stopping in for a peek.

I didn't make a spelling error in the title.. I'm getting a new frond today... Isn't that cute?

This is a piece off of my Rabbit Foots Fern that broke off the mom plant when we moved.  I couldn't bear to throw it away. I stuck it in some water and waited, and waited..... From November to some time in February, I waited for a root. One day there it was!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I was jubilant. Then when the first frond came along - Jubilant again.  This time I'm overjoyed! The little thing is off and running. Now that I know this, I'll be starting more from the feet. It might become a Halloween plant - you never can tell.
So that's what's new today. I'm off to sew now. Working on a Great Granddaughter baby quilt - just in case she is a she. I'll make a blue and green one for a Great Grandson next... if needed. (Did you notice the subtle way I announced that the Grandgirl from the wedding last summer is now about 8 weeks pregnant... (Her Dad asked how that happened.... I love my SIL, he is so fun to tease.)

 Sew I should get at it. Hope you are having a sew day, too.

I've noticed I've got some really dark greens. These are some of the lighter of those. I'm linking up over at the Rainbow Scrap Challenge.... see the button on the side panel.

Have a lovely Memorial Day weekend.

Birds and POD 20

Evening Grosbeaks came by one day to visit out patio/bird feeder, and I got some pictures. (They are a mustard yellow, black and white with a gross beak.)

 (The other bird at our makeshift watering bowl is a  baby starling.

We used to see them ( the evening grosbeaks) when we lived in Wisconsin and Minnesota, but this is the first time we are seeing them in the West. (We live in Vancouver Washington now.)

Finished my POD 20 block this afternoon, too. I did a lot of remodeling of it.  The pattern was to be Hermione's blue flame in a jam jar, but there was no jar. I used some sparkly white fabric to make the glass part of the jar. I like it.

Sew - that's it for today.  Hope you have a wonderful weekend.

POD 19

The top book will be 'Hogwarts, A History' and the bottom book is the 'History of Magic'. I've got a lot of embroidery to do.

May - Green Saturday

I've only 2 more to show. Can't quite get into the dark green butterflies. I do like these two tone on tones.

If you'd like to see more dark green blocks, check out the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. You will be glad you did.

Nuther One

I have another to show, and another in the works... (not showing that one)

This is it, I'm afraid.  It is green month, and there aren't green butterflies - maybe that's why I'm not so enthused.
I'm linking up with the Rainbow Scrap Challenge at soscrappy. See you there.
