ScrapHappy Saturday - RSC16 - Week 29

Welcome to Week 29 of the Rainbow Scrap Challenge!!  I don't know about you, but I'm hoping for MORE (read ANY) sewing this week.  Only time will tell.

Let's take a look at how the week panned out, shall we?

On SUNDAY, I took a ride to the beach.  I didn't GO to the beach, mind you!  I only rode the 2.5 hours down/over there, turned around and drove home.

Well, I did eat at Flaming Amy's...

... And dropped DS2 at UNCW Summer Jazz Workshop!!  SEW... (obviously) NO sewing was done on this day.  :o((

Oh!  I'll be heading BACK on Friday for the reverse trip.  Only then it will be drive down, have dinner, move his things out of the dorm, attend the concert and head home.

Whew!!  I'm tired already!!

MONDAY is the day that I go to Knit Group.  Look at this wall art:

Wouldn't that be a cool quilt installation?!

Today I went... and didn't knit a stitch.  :o((

I was STILL tired from yesterday's excursion!

There was a small amount of digging in the HOT PINK scraps:

Just no energy for sewing blocks.  I'll save that for another day.

On TUESDAY, I met one friend for coffee...

Too bad that it was TOO HOT to sit out front or out back!!!

... And another for lunch, then visited my LYS for an afternoon of weaving in ends on my Tubularity.  OK, so I didn't go to the yarn shop for the express purpose of working on that project and, as much as I love my LYS owner, I didn't even go there to catch up.  The catching up was a delightful side effect of needing to replace my missing darning needle... AGAIN!!!  They disappear faster than stitch markers (and if you're a knitter, you KNOW that those have a way of hiding from us - especially when we really need them!)

WEDNESDAY found me standing at the ironing board for ANOTHER hour (adhering stabilizer to T-shirts for the Tennis Quilt that I'm working on.)  I'm SEW glad that's DONE!!!

I dug through my watermelon fabrics and some random bits. HERE is the initial layout for a Star Block for Covered in Love:

Are YOU having trouble seeing the star in the Star Block???

Me, too!!  I'm still working on that part.  :P

Check out my Wonderful Wednesday - The QAL Edition post HERE... to see what I plan to use for the Star Light, Star Dark QAL over at Quilty Habit.  It's not too late for YOU to join in the FUN!!!

THURSDAY was the start of the:

Confessions Of A Fabric Addict

I've been waiting several weeks for this to begin, as I have (had) a Holiday Quilt in the works (for too many years to count.)  It made its way onto my Q3 FAL List and I thought this Blog Hop would encourage me to make some progress on the quilt (since Sarah at Confessions of a Fabric Addict is running a sew along during the Hop.)

During the afternoon, I put some of my HOT PINK scraps to work on...

... TWO Tiny Nines:

On FRIDAY, when I should have been sewing, I was headed BACK down/over to the beach to pickup DS2.  :o((

It was a LONG ride, but the concert was FANTASTIC!!!  :o))

Oh!  Remember those working scraps from yesterday???

I also put together ONE Maverick Star in HOT PINK:

It's done in a different configuration than (my) normal, but I think the quilt is going to need MORE of this style.

Early SATURDAY morning, I visited Angela's So Scrappy Blog to see if she had posted this week's LINK PARTY.  She had so I'm all linked up and looking forward to seeing what the other RSC Quilters have been up to this week. THAT will have to wait until a little later, as I have a few things to take care of around the house before I head off to BlogLand.

Until next time...
Get Scrappy!!!


  1. I'm sorry your week was so busy and exhausting! Hopefully you sew plenty this week.

  2. Well, your maverick star is cute, and it sounds like you had a fun week. Summer is just so dang busy!!!

  3. Cute Maverick Star, and look at those minis! Relax during the weekend.

  4. Hope you get some relaxing time for stitching this week. The star has nice colors and the tiny nines must be piling up by now. Have a fun week!

  5. Love your tiny nines and your star block in the July colors! So pretty!

  6. A very busy week. Let's hope that you get some playing with fabric and relaxing times this week. Concerts at the end of a week rehearsal are always fun to hear.

  7. I hope you get some sewing time this coming week!
    You may not have gotten much done this week, but that maverick star is just fabulous!!

  8. Considering everything you had to do, I think you got quite a bit of watermelon sewing done! Great job!

  9. You make me tired just reading how busy your week was. Ha!Ha! I like your little pink nine patch blocks. I think little blocks are fun to make,

  10. You got a lot done for such a busy week. Carting the kids around definitely cuts into sewing time. It's gotten much better now that DT can drive herself places.

  11. Great little star and tiny nine patch blocks. :- )
