The Rainbow Scrap Challenge colour for April has just been announced, and it is aqua. This caused a bit of mild panic to set in. Why? We are heading off on Friday for a three week road trip, not returning till the end of the month, so many things to do. Perhaps I wouldn’t get my RSC sewing done this month? Don’t be silly, I told myself, you can sew them today. So I did, and that’s one thing I don’t need to worry about.
I don't have a lot of aqua, so I had to raid the batik fabrics which I had put aside for another project. I knew there was a bit of aqua hiding in the crate, so pulled them out and luckily found some which will work just fine. The four little Bow Tie blocks are very quick to make, and my little collection of small bonus HSTs is growing nicely.

Surprisingly, the Asterisk selvedge blocks take longer to stitch. It’s just straight sewing, but you know me, I like to pin, stitch and press so it always seems to take a while. It’s always interesting reading the selvedges too, some are from my own fabrics while others were given to me ages ago.
There was some emergency sewing to do as well, Gemma's poor little pink mousey had a hole in his tummy and the stuffing was coming out. It was rushed straight into A & E for medical help.
Several stitches later and mousey was as good as new, till next time. Gemma loves this little toy, carries it around in her mouth, and bats it around the floor and chases after it. She is such fun to watch when she is playing.
