A Colorful Weekend....

Well.... Bernie (my Bernina) has gone in to the 'shop' to check on his hiccup so, I have been using FiFi my featherweight and she has been humming along this weekend!
Doesn't she have beautiful scrollwork????
And Ohmigosh....my weekend has been filled with vivid color!

I am addicted to making these scrap log cabins for the challenge which whip up really quickly with freezer paper paper piecing...
It is getting harder to get all of them into a good photo, so I took some closer views...
I initially started putting random colored strips together but have been more inclined this weekend to create patterns...
This block is just dotty!
I loooove this combination of blues and greens...
Each side here has an assigned color...
Great combination of black and red with a little bit of white!
Hey! Even my floor is colorful! And here is a sneak peek at my mini quilt for the Doll Quilt Swap.....Yesterday, Sloppy, Marvin and I tried our hands at shaving cream marble printing on paper...
what great combinations of color were revealed...
I know that I have to try this on fabric some time soon...
Marvin's patriotic print!

While Sloppy and I hung out at the town pool and watched some wonderful fireworks at the nearby lake (Teenager with Lots of Stuff is with a friend RVing), the men in the family spent July 4th on Tongue Mountain hunting for timber rattlesnakes but alas, all they could find were some garter snakes...
and a humungous toad!!!!!I let them take my beloved camera with them and they didn't disappoint!!!! The colors and the views are unbelievable!!!!
The sunset was spectacular from their vantage point!Aren't these colors awesome!?






I hope everyone has a really colorful week!!!!
