On SUNDAY, I thought about what you might like to see in the Color of the Month and thought I would share the new earrings that were given to me last week by my friend Knittingsuek, along with a Thrift Store find in just the right shade of Light / Bright GREEN:
I made ONE Rainbow Crumb Block that looks quite Slab-like:
No sewing was done on MONDAY, but when evening came and I thought I'd share a bit of Light / Bright GREEN piecing (in order to psych myself up for tomorrow!):
Why weren't you sewing, Joyful???
Well, it was DS2's day at the NCMEA Conference. He and the other members of the CRHS Jazz Ensemble played for the music educators from around the state. It was an outstanding performance:
On TUESDAY morning, I realized that I didn't show you the bag that Knittingsuek made for my birthday... in a lovely shade of... you guessed it... Light / Bright GREEN:
When I sat down to sew, I made ONE Rainbow Crumb Block:
And then ANOTHER Rainbow Crumb Block (because I couldn't stop at just ONE!):
WEDNESDAY was Veterans Day in America. Thank you to you and yours, if you have served (or are serving) in the military. I sewed scraps in your honor... there's red, white, and blue in there:
On THURSDAY, I had a busy day. Work in the early-morning, Quilt Group during the late morning, errands in the afternoon, and a Benefit Concert at school in the evening. The Tri-M Honor Society members presented the event to raise money for the Spring Musical. DS2 actually did a trombone solo... a very LOUD trombone solo. Nice work, DS2!!!
FRIDAY was Knit Group... without me!!! I had to stay at home with a sick child. :o((
I did manage to post my intentions for Bonnie Hunter's 2015 Mystery Quilt in my favorite Ravelry group. Bonnie chose red, gold, gray, and black this year. HERE is her inspiration photo:
I hope it inspires you, too. If not, maybe this selection of fabrics (that I intend to use) will help you decide to join in the mystery quilting fun:
Although, I may rethink those choices, as a friend on Ravelry thought that my reds were hot pink. When I read her thoughts, a light bulb went off in my head and I went right up to check that stash! However, I'm going to leave you guessing for now. Sorry! I'm mysterious like that. :P
SATURDAY morning I joined the LINK PARTY for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. If you haven't stopped by to check out all of the Light/Bright GREEN projects, you may want to head over to Angela's So Scrappy Blog now! You will find me at link number 7 this week.
Until next time...
