Yes, it's true.

It's probably not shocking, but I started another project. I know, I know. Not necessary. A little frivolous.
I don't feel guilty, though. Not one bit.
I'm loving every minute I get to craft.

So, whats' the new project? It's Rachel's Bottled Rainbows.

The beginning of another

Saturday afternoon, I had my first block constructed, and partially filled in with eggplant, jewel-toned gorgeous scraps.

Sunday, I spent more time on the block.

Lovey little cat

Olias was feeling snuggly, though, which definitely delayed my progress a bit.

Progress: Bottled Rainbows

I was able to finish the first block yesterday afternoon, and I'm thrilled with how it turned out. I definitely encourage you to join this quilt-along. It's leisurely (which helped encourage me to join!), and I really enjoyed the soothing process of going through scraps to make the first block.

It was sort of similar to making a mosaic, or a collage, which has an air of nostalgia to it.

I'm not sure that I'll use all of the colors Rachel recommends, but I've been digging through the solids I already have and matching them to scraps. I think an orange or a green block will be my next task!

In other crafting news, I finished the second front piece of my Gray Skies cardigan, and have started the final sleeve!
