Scraphappy Saturday and 3CS

Pink is the new colour for May in the Rainbow scrap challenge. At first I wasn't sure what to do. I think I might have mentioned before that there aren't really any colours that I don't like, but pink is one of those that I have to be in the mood to work with....if that makes any sense whatsoever.
Anyhow I've started gathering the scraps ready to cut for my chequerboard blocks. I've also been flickering through some of the magazines that I've bought in the past and a few perfectly pink projects have been jumping out at me from the pages. So once the chequerboard blocks are done I'm happy that I'm going to have plenty of ideas to play with.

I have been working with some blue and brown scraps this last couple of days, as I'm making another collage which will become my base fabric for the latest doll for the 3CS challenge, so the scraps haven't been totally neglected. This is what I have so far.With no plans for this weekend I'm hoping to get in lots of stitching hours so hopefully I'll have lots of creativity to share soon.

Pink isn't my favourite colour, but I was surprised when I got the quilt top together today, I quite liked it.
The collage is coming together nicely, can't wait to see the next doll

Pink hasn't ever been a color I was comfortable with. And as life would have it, when the grandkids started coming, I got 9 grandsons before we finally got a girl!But the browsing for something that jumps out at you, is a perfect way to get inspired to use some pink. I'm sure it will be wonderful. Hugs, finn

I can't wait to see how the blue and brown piece turns out.

I love looking at magazines, books, and other blogs for inspiration. Hopefully, you will hit on a "wow" project!
