Scrap Strips Blanket

I finished the twin sized scrap strips blanket. I started it early last year like March? I don't think it took me a whole year. But close..  And, I noticed the first strip (which was actually the last strip, I work backwards...) Is a lot lighter than all the other ones.  Hmmm. 

I was digging through my bag of paper/card making stuff today and saw my Iris Folding papers/printouts..  I thought "I want to do one of those."  Since I don't have any double sided tape to finish the actual cards I made...  I do have regular tape.   I haven't done a cat one yet. 

I racked my brain trying to think of a good background color to go with orange...  I think this is pretty good.  I really enjoyed making this. Which is something I can't say often..   I still do need double sided tape to finish it though.  I can wait a few days til payday though.  This is technically "scrap strips", too. But paper. And you need more than just strips you do need a couple strips of each color. Depending on what you are doing. Small shapes you would need less..  I think I posted the link for Iris Folding before but it has been a long time...  Here are a few I did before.  A snowman one I did..  I had another guitar one I started, too.  It's actually all done, I would just need to do the handle.. 

We had a 60 degree day a couple days ago (or maybe it was yesterday?).  And all the frogs came out!  I noticed this one on our house. It was there for two days. It's gone now.  Well I "had" to show it to Duke....  Ugh...  He was obsessed with trying to get it. But, fortunately for the frog, his legs are too short. :P   There was another frog on the pavement, but I think it was already dead because it wasn't moving when he tried to get it. We had to get it out of his mouth and throw it out of the backyard.
