Scraphappy Saturday - Green around the Gills

It's Saturday again so time for a Rainbow challenge update post. I have to admit I'm feeling a little frustrated at the moment, I've been feeling under the weather on and off for a few weeks and it's really dragging me down now. I'm trying to carry on but just feel that I'd be able to get so much more done if I was feeling well.

Anyway enough moaning - it's time to bring on the green. That messy pile of scraps on the cutting table the other day has now been turned in to a few ATCs.'Ticker Tape''Dream''The Jungle King'

These are all up for trading so if anyone is interested just leave me a comment and make sure I have a way to get in contact with you - there are no rules for the trade, you send whatever you wish and you don't have to be part of the Rainbow Challenge.

I have also started on a much larger project which has used up some of the green scraps. It's an applique quilt of a frog pond - the design is from Lynette Anderson. This is my progress so far.There is a long way to go and I know I started this too late on in the month to have it done by the end of the green round but hey we don't have to follow the colours strictly so it'll still count next month too.

Glad I'm not the only one finding this cold hanging around far too long!
The ATC's are beautiful and I'm looking forward to seeing your pond completed, it looks like a fun project

I'm sorry to hear that you've been feeling under the weather; hopefully some good weather will help you to feel better. The green frog pond is going to be interesting. I've not been able to get into my sewing room all week and next week my machine is going to be serviced, so I'm going to be way behind with green scraps too.

Very cute ATCs! Hope you don't have the flu like I did.

I liked that little bird when I spotted him on your cutting table and I like him even more as a finished ATC, but that tiger, WOW!

I understand how frustrated you feel over the cold and your lack of energy but don't try to force yourself to do things. It will all happen in its own time.

Love your trading cards once again!
We should arrange a second trade with the new color. Let me make a couple of choices this time and I'll post them so you may have your choice this month too! This will be fun.

You have accomplished quite a bit - looking forward to seeing the frog pond completed.
