On SUNDAY, we traveled to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. You might guess what that means... THIS stayed home:
Notice: Be sure to check out my Quilty Orphan Adoption post HERE. Thank you to Cynthia at Quilting is more fun than Housework for encouraging us to part with items that we aren't using! The drawing will take place on Monday, September 26th. If you like fabric scraps, leave a comment. (Disclaimer: Postage will be the winner's responsibility. Sorry!)
MONDAY we vegged around the condo and finished the first one of these Stripy Sleeves of Warmth:
TUESDAY, I drove down to visit Knittingsuek. We had a lovely visit and here she is with Norma Jean, her vintage Singer sewing machine:
In honor of RED month for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge, I give you Sue's Tumble Quilt:
We debated over the best choice for binding.
WEDNESDAY, after opting to stay over, visit some more, and hit the post office to mail off the Custom CK Totes, I took my time getting back to Myrtle Beach.
I made it back just in time for this storm to roll in:
THURSDAY dawned fairly clear and turned out to be a lovely day. We eventually made it down to the actual BEACH...

The skies cleared...
... And Mr. Joyful was able to enjoy soaking up a bit of sunshine before packing up to head home:
SATURDAY we slept late. I worked on this blog post and joined Angela's LINK PARTY. As you might guess, I also tackled Mt. Washmore. After a week at the beach AND 3 weeks worth of DS2's laundry, there was quite a mound of it!
Maybe NEXT week will be the week that I complete my RSC blocks in RED. Only time will tell...
Until next time...
