Rainbow Scrappy Saturday

Saturday, October 17, 2015
Its been a busy week but I found time to finish the R/W/B album blocks--


Bad lighting/night picture but I forgot to try again and they're off the wall and into the project tote!  Not brown but its what I made this week.  I think I need to make one more to have enough for a quilt.  Please see everyone's posts at SoScrappy.

Earlier this week I baked cookies.  Lots of cookies!




Cherry nut slice, icebox, soft gingersnaps and a double recipe of chocolate chip.  Its harvest here and its stressful and I bake when I am stressed!  All but a few went in the freezer. 

Of course now that's it going to get cold and freeze my flowers look their best.

Grandpa Ott Morning Glory

Heavenly Blue Morning Glory
Zebra Striped Malva
The Morning Glorys were planted from seed in June.  The Malva are perennials which do better if Ken remembers they are NOT weeds and doesn't mow them off!  All are tolerant of much neglect.

Beautiful blocks AND blooms.

The cookies look yummy, but they would be dangerous to have in my house.

DH has a thing about mowing off some of our perennials, too - some it helps, others not so much.

Having cookies pre-made in the freezer is a great idea (I bake when I'm stressed, too).

The album blocks look fabulous - as do your flowers! And cookies! (Cookies are my weakness!)

Good job with the album blocks, but I'm frankly more impressed with the cookies! I used to bake and enjoyed it immensely. Can't eat baked goods now so there's no fun in making them. The ones you made look like good varieties to send to soldiers and sailors overseas for the holidays.

That zebra striped malva is gorgeous.

I have to remember not to pull the Malva up. I always figure if I didn't plant it, it's a weed and out it goes. And every year it's back. I must be leaving enough of the root behind for it to come up again. Yummy looking cookies!

Nice work on your BROWN blocks!! (I totally feel your pain about mowed down flowers... my own DH does quite a nice job of that, too.)

At least your cookies were brown! Yummy!!!! We're expecting our first frost tonight. I went for a drive in the mountains and saw sleet. Enjoy the last of your flowers.

I bet your house smelled great... I cannot resist a cookie so none would go in the freezer unless they went in and I chipped a tooth trying to eat it frozen. LeeAnna

I've never seen malva before - it's beautiful! (Must investigate.)
Nothing says security like homemade cookies in the freezer.

The blocks look good and the cookies look so tasty, but the flowers are my favorite. I have never seen the malva before, but it is a great perennial. Is it a climber? Would do well here in southern WI, since it does well for you. Keep up the good work!

Love those blocks! And, lucky freezer! :D

Your morning glories are gorgeous. What you call "malva" looks exactly like my lemon scented geraniums - at least that's what I was told it was. Like your flowers, my fuchsias are blooming like crazy now that it's not so hot anymore, but I will soon have to cut them back to save over the winter.

One more block until you have enough for a quilt. That is exciting! So many cookies. They should definitely last for while.

Love your blocks! Your flowers are beautiful. And you cookies look DELICIOUS! Cookies are my weakness.
