SUNDAY - Tackled Mt. Washmore and gathered my MULTICOLORED fabric, finding the basket well and truly overflowing with scraps:
I also took ANOTHER trip to Chapel Hill!!! (Lucky thing for me, it's fairly close.) DS2 has a doctor appointment in town tomorrow.
MONDAY - Missed most of Knit Group in favor of going to the doctor with DS2, hoping to find out what's going on. A trip to the pharmacy AND a return trip to UNC, then off to catch the tail end of knitting. I was able to knit a row or two before we all headed out to lunch. (It's been AGES since we've done that and everyone enjoyed Catrina's.)
When I got home, I spent some time in the sewing room sorting through that mound of scraps from yesterday. Picking out all of the DARK rainbow prints - to coincide with the despair I've been feeling over DS2's recent medical problems:
TUESDAY - It's a stay-at-home day. No, really!! I stayed home ALL DAY (except for when I went for my quarterly pedicure.) Fancy RAINBOW toes...
... With a color to coordinate with the fingers:
Please ignore the discoloration.
Apparently, the lighting was a bit off for this shot!!
Before lunch, I sorted through the BRIGHT rainbow scraps - to represent the hope I feel now that DS2 has some meds to help him:
WEDNESDAY - Another stay-at-home day. Well... it was SUPPOSED to be. Until Needleb decided that we needed another Sew Day!!
THIS is how far I got on my RSC blocks before heading over...
And DARK, all laid out and ready to be sewn:
Too busy sewing to take pictures while I was there. Let me assure you, progress was made on not one project, but TWO!! :o))
THURSDAY - Same old, same old. Spent the day helping a friend. At the end of the day I went to the grocery store AND took a trip to Raleigh to pick up DS1. He finished his project early, so decided to grace us with his presence for the weekend. :P
FRIDAY - It's the Good Friday holiday. ANOTHER stay-at-home day for THREE in one week!! This time I made my way back to Needleb's house for MORE sewing.)
Know what that meant?! I actually ESCAPED another trip to Chapel Hill!!! Thanks, DS1 for doing the honors.
Progress on the DARK Scrap Jar Star, components assembled:
The BRIGHT Scrap Jar Star is ready for assembly, too. It's just not laid out for stitching:
I jumped between working on the 4-Patch blocks for my En Provence and making handles for a set of Trail Totes. You can see Needleb working on her own 4-Patch blocks, but hers are for the outer border:
SATURDAY - LINK PARTY day. Can't WAIT to see what MULTICOLORED madness the RSC Quilters have gotten up to during the week!
Here's what I accomplished during the week:
Assembled DARK Scrap Jar Star...
And... BRIGHT Scrap Jar Star:
Until next time...
