I'm happy with Angela's colour choice for this month as I need some yellow (energy) in my life at the moment. We are back in the office since Tuesday. It is fun to see my colleagues again, especially as two of them are pregnant! We are an all-girl office so there's a lot of talking and laughing, sharing experiences, recipes, kids' funny sayings, menopause, etc. But all this noise plus the radio, the printer, people coming and going, is very distracting and takes a toll on my energy. I'm not used to that anymore. I'm sure I won't be so tired in another week or two. So, YAY for yellow!
(Some might say this is really petty talk compared to what is going on in Ukraine. Yes, I agree. I try to keep my life as ordinary as possible, in a nutshell, because the world is overwhelming me beyond what my pills can handle. Thanks for not reprimanding me for it.)
I didn't expect to have such a tough time pairing yellow fabrics together this week. I'm staying away from light yellows that won't show up much once they are surrounded by the other blocks. So, I pulled out some "darker" yellows. They are mostly medium though.
And some sewing ensued.

|Anne's Quilt second block|
|Chaser block |
That was fun!
My wanderings all over the Internet, during an evening I was brain-dead, lead me to some beautiful Dear Jane quilts. I would love to have my own DJ so I spent some time looking at different DJ sites. Then something popped up on my design wall.

It's DJ's row K block #1 aka Crooked Creek. What have I done?! 🙄 I have enough new projects started for this year. I don't want more! I had a little talk with myself. 😠 I need to stop collecting blocks for RSC2022! So, I said to myself that it was for RSC2023. 😝 (How long will I resist making more?) (Until the colour of next month is called!)
A second yellow Jericho Wall is done and more to come this week, but first, since it's a beautiful Saturday morning here, I'm heading out. My shovel and I need to discuss where to pile the snow in order to excavate the deck so I can enjoy it once again. 😊
Have a great sewing week everyone.
