SUNDAY - Slept in since I was up WAY too late after the wedding celebration. In my defense, it was Karaoke Night at our hotel and my SIL was singing!
We did a family brunch in the Riverside Ballroom at the Lambertville Station Restaurant and Inn. I think we had 5 tables of 4 plus a chair at the end of 3 of those (because my BIL apparently can't count.)
The event center was accessed by crossing this wonderful little bridge:
This is the view from the parking lot:
We headed in for a feast:
MONDAY - Finally got a look at Block 4 of the Squared Away Sampler designed by Mari of The Academic Quilter with input from Angela over at So Scrappy.
Ut-oh!! See those lines on the road? We may be in for some weather of the flake-y variety:
Yep! I even caught a flake on the rim of my glasses:
WEDNESDAY - Loaded a gift quilt on the frame:
There's even some YELLOW in there. It's the only bit I've worked with for April's Rainbow Scrap Challenge. Sorry, Angela!!!
THURSDAY - I gave up after my thread broke about 5 times in the 1st row!! I was too tired to troubleshoot the problem. Attempted to take care of that this afternoon.
The culprit: I have NO idea!!! It is STILL giving me fits. :o((
FRIDAY - Talked with my local APQS rep and found that I either have to time my machine or take it in to have it timed. (I think the culprit was a needle inserted backwards. Darned older eyes!!)
Amanda Jean of Crazy Mom Quilts finished a fabulous scrappy quilt. See it HERE. The following comment really gave me pause:
I love the front of the quilt, but the fun fact is, that it's actually two quilts in one, because I pieced a back from my stash. I used a stack of fabrics that I had bundled together YEARS ago, thinking it would make a cute quilt...you know, someday. Well, after some editing (adding AND subtracting), I have ANOTHER quilt. That's good use of my batting dollar. Hurray!
SATURDAY - Playing in the YELLOW scraps:
I captured a rainbow earlier this week, sadly no put of gold at the end... just a bunch of clothes to share with friends, sell or donate to The Will of Good:
With all that travel time, look how much progress I've made on my sweater:
Now, if I could just SEW something in the Color of the Month!!
Remember!! It's LINK PARTY day. Be sure to visit Angela over at So Scrappy for a look at what the other RSC Quilters have been doing with their YELLOW scraps this week. (Don't be fooled by the title of her post. She's not talking about me. Angela is just happy that there are only 31 day until graduation and Summer Break can't be far beyond that.)
Oh!! For those of you who are interested, I updated my Scrap Attack Tuesday - April Job Pull post with a couple of pictures. The days just got away from me this week. Here's hoping that next week will be back to the normal level of chaos.
Until next time...
