This month the colour for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge is pink. This fun challenge is run by Angela of Sew Scrappy. I have several pink items in my wardrobe, although blue remains my favourite colour to wear. Pink is such a pretty girly colour, and I have used it a lot in my quilting projects over the years, and I think it goes so nicely in quilts teamed with green.
I’ve been stitching away and have finished my pink RSC blocks for the month. First, here are my two pink selvedge asterisk blocks. I’m not making too much of a dent in my selvedge collection yet, may have to stitch another selvedge quilt next year to use some more of them up.
These pretty pink Bow Tie blocks are quick to make, and those few extra stitching lines on each corner gives me a nice little collection of tiny bonus HSTs too. I’ll probably use these little cuties in the border when I finally put the blocks together.

It’s been a cold, wet, wintry day today so I made some soup in the microwave for lunch. Lovely creamy parsnip soup, flavoured with a little cooked, chopped bacon. So tasty, and we enjoyed a bowl of soup with a swirl of cream on top, together with a toasted bread roll for lunch. I love making soup in the winter, seems such a homely thing to do.
