SUNDAY morning started late at our house. After breakfast, I found that there was NO INTERNET!! :o((
That pushed me up the stairs to the sewing room.
What did you do, Joyful???
I dug through my BROWN scraps and gathered pieces for Stings and Slabs. I even managed to do a TINY bit of sewing!! :o))
Before lunch, with internet restored, I found that Angela had posted her latest sampler block tutorial:
Rainbow Scrap Challenge Sampler 2015
She named the block Shadow Star. If you haven't made anything like this, give it a try! Her directions are very good and the resulting block, with proper value placement, looks almost 3-D.
Oh! By the way...
I hope you (and Angela) won't mind, but I'm taking credit for the TWELVE Mystery Blocks that I completed on my recent CCLQ @ The Bluff quilt retreat!! It's STILL a mystery (for those who were left behind) so I'm sure you will understand why I can only share a small portion of the blocks:
On MONDAY, while I was SUPPOSED to be working on my custom bags... I was wandering around my local BIG BOX store waiting to have my tires changed! :o((
On the upside, I got my nails painted a nice, sparkly shade of BROWN:
TUESDAY morning found me upstairs working out... my Custom Bag design challenge!! :P
I had hoped to visit the Donation Bee, but time wasn't on my side. :o((
On the bright side... I have FINALLY managed to work out the Large Exterior Pocket on the bag:
WEDNESDAY was spent sewing until lunch time. After that, a business meeting, then a hair appointment, followed by hanging out with friends, kept me busy for the rest of the day. The night??? It was for Girls' Night Out!! :o))
But... I need to show you my "warm-up" block. I set out to make ONE Slab Block in BROWN, however, things took a bit of a slant:
What do YOU think?? Can I still call it a Slab??? Please advise.
THURSDAY included Quilt Group (and was going to include a trip to get the college boy.) Fall Break began yesterday. (DH was kind enough to make the journey while I was out with my friends!)
SO... Since I didn't have to go to Raleigh, I was able to sew ONE Rainbow Crumb Block. The fabrics are courtesy of my friend Dee Dee (and the scrap bag that she brought me a few weeks ago:
The evening was ALL about the other boy. He was inducted into the Tri-M Honor Society. Congrats! to DS2. We are SO proud of you (and your musical abilities!!!
On FRIDAY, after getting DS2 off to Jazz rehearsal, DH and I left for the beach. His brother has a condo rented and was kind enough to invite us down for the weekend. It's my BIG 5 - 0 celebration!! ( Thank you, DBIL!!! WHAT an AMAZING condo!!)
SATURDAY is the day for Angela's LINK PARTY. Fortunately for YOU, I brought along my computer so that I could share what BROWN sewing I was able to complete! :P
Until next time...
