Log Cabin Blocks "Wonky' style and Crochet Scallop Blanket

My Log Cabin blocks 'wonky' style.

They will have another round of 'logs' before I'm ready to sew them together.

I'm crocheting this blanket for my 'Grand Muffin'.

Yesterday the sun came out and I had to dive into color! I added a few more rounds of 'logs' to the log cabin blocks I had set aside and sliced them askew to spice them up.
I'm linking up with Ad Hoc Improv Quilters today, check out the great ideas there.

I loose all inspiration when I try to work with color that doesn't excite me. I tossed out some dreadful patch work I had put together having heard somewhere it was good to use up scraps. Notice to all colors that don't 'work' for me, you will be shipped to the local thrift shop where, someone, with a different taste for color will buy you and love you. It will be a relief for both of us.

I've been working on the Baby Brights Scallops blanket, a kit I bought from Herrschner's .
I started it a year ago for one of my grand daughters and then found out they were moving to Florida. I was sure she wouldn't need it there so I put it aside. Then I found out they will soon be moving north where the temperatures are very cold. So I got it out and I'll finish it up knowing it will be useful. 

That's my creative adventures so far this week.
Happy Wednesday!
