Yesterday, whilst the kitchen designer was measuring up and checking where the drainage pipes and electricity points were, and putting it all onto his computer, I couldn't do much as he kept asking questions. So I sorted out all my scraps into different coloured piles, ready for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge over the coming months. It was a fascinating exercise, to see which piles were the largest and smallest. I've loads of orange and yellow, a fair bit of brown and quite a lot of black. There's quite a big pile of green, but virtually no pink or purple. There's a small pile of turquoise as well. So some months I'm going to be busy, some less so.

Thankfully, there's not too much red. Here it is ironed and in the same basket as I used for the blue scraps last month.

I have a few ideas what I'd like to do with the red, so will start to play once I've finished quilting the second blue quilt that I made. Then I'll just have two quilt tops to finish, both to be hand quilted using cotton a broder, so they shouldn't take too long I hope.

What a fun basket of possibilities. It will be fun to see what you come up with. It looks like a nice break after all that blue last month!

I love red. I'll be looking forward to seeing what you come up with. I'm always waiting on the progress in the kitchen.

It's amazing that, while you don't think you have a favourite colour, your stash gives you away! (I have loads of blue, and hardly any purple!)
