This month the colour for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge is orange. This fun challenge is run by Angela of Sew Scrappy. Orange is not one of my favourite colours, and is not a colour I would ever wear. I found several orange fabrics tucked away, and I made my usual four Bow Tie blocks and two more Asterisk blocks.

I’m always amazed at the number and variety of projects that some participants do. Next year I hope to get a little more adventurous and have already decided on a couple of blocks which I want to stitch up.
Although the colour orange is not really my cup of tea, we have used this colour in furnishings. In our former home, a Lockwood wooden home with lovely cozy internal wooden walls, we had bright orange curtains in our sitting room. This colour looked wonderful and so warm against the timber walls, particularly in winter with the curtains pulled tightly closed across the large picture windows, and the fire burning.
It’s not quite winter here yet, but the weather is getting cooler and I made my first big pot of soup. Yummy pumpkin soup, flavoured with bacon, onions and a hint of curry. So tasty, and just right for May, definitely orange in colour!
