Welcome to Week 52 of the Rainbow Scrap Challenge!! I'm not sure HOW we have arrived at Week 52 of the RSC, but we have. I continually hope that I will have done some work on one (or more) of my RSC projects.
Let's see how that panned out this week...
SUNDAY - I spent the afternoon quilting on the last four minis in my Christmas Tree Lot series:
MONDAY - I was up early to help DH get out on time. After that, it was a trip to the doctor with DS2. (No worries, just a check up.) The afternoon was spent binding quilts. Three out of the "Tree Lot" were bound:
The last one posed a challenge in thread color selection. That's OK! Tomorrow is another day (and it's time for dinner, anyway.)
TUESDAY - Got up even EARLIER!! Was up for a couple of hours and then went back to bed and slept LATE!! I goofed around on the internet for a while and then went off to do the grocery shopping.
Upon my return, I went up to the studio to finish the LAST tree in the lot:
With THAT done, I turned to my En Provence Mystery Quilt. You can read all about that in THIS POST.
WEDNESDAY - I did a bit of work on my En Provence Mystery...
... Before turning my attention to Wonderful Wednesday - The Tree Lot Edition (where you can read all about my TWELVE Christmas Tree mini quilts, thanks to a wonderful tutorial from Kevin the Quilter. This is the time to sort your scraps and begin projects for NEXT year's gift giving. Go have a LOOK!!
THURSDAY - My weekly Quilt Group celebrated our Holiday Luncheon today. All I can say is... YUM!!!
During the gift-giving section of the meeting, the quilters were VERY surprised (and thrilled) by my offerings. What did I give them, you ask?? Hint!! See yesterday's entry. :o))
As others sat around working and waiting for Show and Tell, I cut the borders for THIS quilt:
I decided that it has "marinated" long enough and NEEDS to be finished by the end of the year!! Now, let's see if I can make it happen. Maybe sew, maybe no, but I'm going to try!
FRIDAY - Since I missed Knit Group on Monday, several members agreed to meet today. I was pleased to show off my completed Quaker Yarn Stretcher shawl and my nearly completed Christmas Magic Cowl.
I met DH at Home Depot after the meeting. We spent an hour or two in the plumbing isle trying to decide on a new faucet. Ours developed a leak (just like our original did just two years ago!) Santa's got a new job this Christmas!!
The evening was spent with a new little friend. We are just getting to know each other and plan to spend more time together in the coming months.
SATURDAY - Joined Angela's LINK PARTY (so that other RSC Quilters can feel good about their progress.) With any luck at all, I may have some to show NEXT week!!! (Given my success rate thus far, I wouldn't hold my breath, if I were you.)
Enjoy your Holiday weekend!! I'm off to wrap presents. When the dust clears, I'll make my rounds of all the RSC Quilters' posts.
Until next time...
