Orange August

The Rainbow Scrap Challenge for August is orange. Mari posted new block for the Squared Away Sampler, and Angela decided on the colour.

Here are my two 10" blocks in orange and brown.

Speaking of rainbows:

This heralded the end of the heatwave yesterday. This rainbow was a complete semicircle, continuing round to fade into another block of flats about 1km. away to my right. I've never seen a complete rainbow before; they usually fade away before they get to a quarter circle.

On the weather front: the heatwave is over! Hooray! The daytime temperatures above 30°C (normal body temp is 36) are in the past. Yesterday's rain didn't amount to much so it didn't make any difference to the yellow crunchy grass.

Lovely ORANGE blocks for the RSC and congrats on catching a rainbow (if only on "film"!)

Your Squared Away blocks are so pretty! I really like the bright orange with brown accents. I always love to see rainbows - it's especially great when you get the whole rainbow! Glad to hear you're in for cooler temperatures!

I'm guessing there's going to be heaps of happy folk now the heat has dropped a little. We have been catching up on the weather in Europe and other parts of the world on our news here. Love the orange and brown blocks!
