2013 Rainbow Scrap Challenge, January, Pink, Week 3

This week I pieced three more 8 1/2" blocks and a pink house using Bonnie Hunter's "Scrappy Happy House" block pattern found on her web page. Many things can be made with those blocks during the year. Hot pads, pot holders, table runners, etc.  I cut more 2 1/2" squares and 5" tumblers for my square and tumbler collections. To see what others have been making with their pink scraps, go here.
This week I've worked on my "Easy Street Mystery Quilt" by Bonnie Hunter. I hope to finish the quilt top this weekend. And I've been practicing my knitting a little every day.
To find Bonnie's web site, click on the Easy Street button on the side of my blog.

Well, you certainly have a lot of pink! I found some more, but putting in a drawer for later - fill in on blocks that I may need later once I know what I am doing with them.

Love all the pinks! Super cute blocks.
What a great idea to also cut some extra shapes and put them aside. I'm gonna steal that idea! Thanks.
