Snapshots - Like Riding a Bike - RSC15 - Whirlers

Hi y'all!  I've been so busy!  I'm moving on the 25th so most of my time has been spent packing.  But I did get a visit this weekend from Cassidy for her birthday and she brought three wonderful new friends with her so I had a full house.  We went to Rainforest Cafe on Saturday to celebrate.  (Cassidy's on the right, and her best friend/roommate, Jessica, is on the left)

Cassidy and Jessica

Cassidy wants to be a large animal vet so this restaurant is her favorite place to go.

In between running around with these kids, I did manage to get two blocks worked up.  First is the, "Like Riding a Bike," block for the Snapshots QAL.

Snapshots - Like Riding a Bike

I had one piece that I had upside down and didn't notice until the block was assembled, so this one had a bit of ripping, but it turned out adorable.  I simply love it!!  And those pinwheels finish at 1-1/2".

Next up is the Whirlers block, the first orange block of the month in the Rainbow Scrap Challenge being hosted by so scrappy.

RSC15 - Whirlers

This was a really simple block.  But I just don't have much in the way of orange!  Even so, you gotta love when Pebbles and Bam Bam come out to play! :)

Because of the move, not a ton of sewing will be happening in the next few weeks.  I do have my leaders/enders ready to show you tomorrow for our monthly linkup so be sure to stop by tomorrow and share!
