It’s time for some more Rainbow Scrap Challenge sewing. I only have one project still going, believe it or not, the others are complete. Not properly complete, I hasten to add, but a series of blocks sitting in their project bags. Little Bricks was started late, and will be carried over to 2023. I cut out eight blue blocks and got to work stitching. Well pinned, as I like to do.
I like to use plenty of pins
While I was up at the ironing board,pressing the blocks, Gemma decided to join me at the sewing machine. After snoozing the day away, I think she was looking for some company.
I’m here to help you, Mum
The blocks were stitched together in a zig zag line, with a sashing strip added to each end. There, all done – this will join the purple and orange strip now.
Blue strip complete
Our Spring here in New Zealand arrived a couple of weeks ago. Looks like our native kowhai tree has got the message, as the tree is now festooned with pretty hanging yellow blossoms.

I have just come back to writing this blog post as I had to stop and sit in front of the TV to watch the “Ascension of King Charles 111”. Full of pomp and ceremony, 200 members of the Privy Council met to hear King Charles make his declaration. Later heralds gathered on the balcony at St James Palace, and the Proclamation was read out from the balcony to those members of the public gathered below. This is the first time this ancient ceremony, dating back to 1600s has been shown on TV.
