ScrapHappy Saturday - RSC15 - Week 42

Welcome to Week 42 of the Rainbow Scrap Challenge!!

SUNDAY - I came home from my birthday weekend at the beach to find that Angela had posted another Sampler Block for October:

RSC Sampler October Block 2 - Kick

It looks like a REALLY fun block to make!  If you haven't made anything like it, you may want to give it a try using Angela's AWESOME tutorial.

Happy 20th Birthday to DS1!!!  How FAST the time has flown (and how fast he disappears when the camera is aimed his way):

MONDAY morning, I set off to mail out the Custom Tote Bag that I finished last week:

Only to find that the post office was closed for Columbus Day!!!


Thwarted, I went up to sew for a bit.  I completed ONE Maverick Star for Alycia's Block Drive:

Prepped two and finished ONE Tiny Nine in BROWN:

On TUESDAY, I tried again.  Finding the post office open, I was able to mail the bag AND 30 pieces of fabric in trade for some BEAUTIFUL Plucky Knitter yarn:

Thank you, Pamelajd!!  I hope you enjoy the fabrics (as much as I plan to enjoy the yarn that you sent!!)

Back in the sewing room, I made ONE String Block in shades of "Paper Bag" BROWN:


ONE, more slab-like, Slab Block in BROWN (You may recall that last week's example more closely resembled a Crumb Block... oops!):


On WHAT, Joyful???

The FOUR remaining Custom Tote Bags, that's what!  Let the "Second Sewing" begin...

But first, I made TWO more String Blocks in BROWN:

This THURSDAY, the Quilt Group gathered at my house.  Coffee and donuts were followed by hand work.  Let's not forget a good dose of Show and Tell... my offering was THIS quilt (to which I was applying a label):

The afternoon found me up in the sewing room!  The bag of scraps that Joanna brought last week kept me occupied and produced ONE Rainbow Crumb Block.  (Thanks, Joanna!!):

FRIDAY morning began at the Coffee Shop for Knit Group.  The afternoon was made for quilting.  Unfortunately, that hungry Marching Band cut into my sewing time... AGAIN!!!  :P

I did manage to make ONE Maverick Star Block in BROWN before heading over to the school:

On SATURDAY, I invite YOU to join me on a tour of Angela's LINK PARTY for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge!  October's Color of the Month is BROWN (in case you didn't know or happen to have forgotten.)  Quilters from all over the world are joining in the Scrap Quilting FUN!!

You'll find me at link number X this week.

Now, I'm off to my monthly Quilt Bee meeting.  I'll be looking forward to going on that "blog tour" later in the day.  Feel free to go on ahead!   :o))

Until next time...
Get Scrappy!!!
