ScrapHappy Saturday - RSC17 - Week 28

Welcome to Week 28 of the Rainbow Scrap Challenge!!  This week held a wonderful treat for me.  It included not one, but TWO Sew Days!

Let's see if that did me any good...

SUNDAY - Where did the day go?!  BlogLand.  I spent the bulk of the day catching up with the RSC Quilters, writing up the notes from yesterday's monthly Quilt Bee meeting, and getting a start on this post.  I like to work up an outline on Sunday, so all I have to do is drop in the week's activities as the days go by.  It works for me.

The Basket family went out to celebrate DS2's birthday.  
Unfortunately, his 1st choice was CLOSED!!  :o((

PERMANENTLY.  Much disappointment for the celebrant.

No worries!  His 2nd choice was delicious!!  :o))

MONDAY - I spent the day with a friend that I haven't seen in quite a while.  We had a fun-filled day by sharing some time with my Knit Group, scouring for bargains at the local Used Book Store, and enjoying a bite of lunch.  Not much got done once I got back home in the late afternoon.  I was involved in baking a birthday cake and yummy making dinner.

TUESDAY - This morning I added the finishing touches on this week's Tutorial Tuesday post and set off for a Sew Day at Diane's.

Wide sections of border assembled for Bluff Quilt in Brown:

Trimmed up Clue #1 of Kevin's Sapphire Star Mystery.  RSC Quilters, please notice the BLUE for July:

Attached the short borders on Bluff Quilt in Brown:

After lunch, I rushed off to an overdue hair appointment.  The evening was spent knitting with a friend.

WEDNESDAY - I hoped to get some quilting done before heading out to J's for the day.  The more important task became searching for a project to take along.

I ended up taking the kitchen sink!!

OK, not really, but my large IKEA bag was filled with a variety of projects to keep me busy for the day.  I made corner units for my Bluff Quilt in Brown and completed the top:

Finished cutting the squares for the Rainbow Picnic Sew-Along:


Came up with some quilting ideas for the Birthday Quilt:

All in all, it was a VERY good day!!  (Even if I forgot the book credits for the quilting designs.  Sorry random quilt book author!)

THURSDAY - That was FAST!!  I can't believe it's Thursday!  I stayed late helping my friend and then had to go grocery shopping. Do you have ANY idea how dangerous it is to shop on an empty stomach?!?!  Speaking of that empty stomach...

Dinner was late (because DH was late getting home.)  How does he manage to be late on the day that I am the hungriest???  LOL

Happy FRIDAY!!  Today was another busy day.  When I got home from helping my friend, I got ready to go out with some friends.

Tonight was our Triple/Double Date Night.  To commemorate the event, here is a photo from the "dessert" place, Dick and Jane's:

The photo above was taken as a nod to some of my knitting friends.

Note to self:  DO NOT go to Mebane Knights on Live Band night. The music is TOO loud!!

SATURDAY - It's my favorite day of the week.  LINK PARTY day!  The best part is that today, I have time to follow all the links and catch up with what the other RSC Quilters have been doing this week.  Won't YOU come along to see all of the BLUE goodness?

Linking up with Cynthia
over at Quilting is More fun than Housework.

Until next time...
Get Scrappy!!!
