ScrapHappy Saturday - RSC16 - Week 48

Welcome to Week 48 of the Rainbow Scrap Challenge!!  This week was filled with a variety of obligations and events.  I keep hoping that some sewing will work its way into my schedule...

Let's see how that panned out for me.

SUNDAY afternoon, I sorted one of the FOUR scrap bags that I received on Saturday:

My MONDAY was filled with crafty goodness.  Knit Group in the morning, fabric scrap sorting in the afternoon, and Quilt Guild in the evening.  What a wonderful way to start the week!!

I wove in the ends of my Stripey Sleeves of Warmth:

I also took THREE bags of scraps to share with guild members!!

On TUESDAY, I took care of the family finances in the morning, did some more scrap sorting in the midday...

... And took a SLOW tour of the Triangle area in the late afternoon/early evening.  Those of you who have followed my blog for a while will know that means that I had to go to both Raleigh AND Chapel Hill to pick up my college boys.

ETA... Last minute change of plans!!  DS2 needed to complete a project, so my trip to Chapel Hill will have to wait for tomorrow.

WEDNESDAY afternoon was reserved for a special meeting of my Quilt Bee.  Our member who now lives in England is back in the States for the holiday and wanted to get together with everyone.  Of course, we said YOU BET!!!  Here's a photo of our hostess with the guest of honor:

On THURSDAY, my family gathered at Mom's for a Thanksgiving feast.  We collaborated and did the best we could (without the assistance of my SIL's "magic oven" - the one that cooked the turkey lightning fast each year!)

I took my newly started knitting project made with my Post-SAFF yarn purchase.  I'm making a Quaker Yarn Stretcher Boomerang:

FRIDAY was filled with a trip to Quiltville.  It's time for Bonnie Hunter's post-Thanksgiving Day Mystery.  Thank you, Bonnie for this year's to France!!  The first clue of En Provence was released this morning... I guess I better go choose my fabrics and get busy.

Yes!  You read that correctly.  I have been a slacker this year and DID NOT prepare for the Mystery when Bonnie announced this year's color cards.  If you've never done her Mystery Quilts, head over and check it out!  You are welcome to substitute colors or choose to make a portion of the units.  I do one-quarter of the assignment for a lap quilt sized end product.  It's SEW much fun!

SATURDAY is here and that means it's LINK PARTY day over on Angela's So Scrappy blog.  I'm headed over to see which of the RSC Quilters have finished their Rainbow Scrap Challenge projects this week (because you KNOW that I didn't finish any here!!)

Until next time...
Get Scrappy!!!


  1. Your boomerang scarf is right in my colours. Hmmm! Yummy! Can't wait to see more of that one. I read on another blog, that she was making only a portion of Bonnie's Mystery Quilt and that was tempting me. I think I need to visit my stash too and I "might" make a little BKH quilt. :^D
    How come you didn't finished any RSC? (lol) (Psst! I didn't either! Bhahaha!) Enjoy! ;^)

  2. Bonnie’s tutorial for spinning those 4-patch seams is the first one I’ve ever understood, so thanks for the link to her En Provence QAL. Hopefully you have lots of neutrals in those scraps.

  3. I love your boomerang! Enjoy what looks like a fun knit!
    I'm getting ready to start sewing a few blocks for the Bonnie Mystery. Starting us off easy peasy!

  4. Glad you had a productive and enjoyable week. I'm excited about the Mystery. My first time, and I've collected a good stash to do half size.

  5. Busy but fun week you had. Enjoy the mystery this year. Im sitting this one out.

  6. Noooo, it can't be week 48! The year is going too fast! Great projects--I love those stripey sleeves especially. They look festive and warm.

  7. Do you listen to anything interesting on your triangle road trips? Or is it a good time to be alone with your thoughts?
