ScrapHappy Saturday - RSC17 - Week 38

Welcome to Week 38 of the Rainbow Scrap Challenge!!  This week I thought that I might try be focused on getting into the sewing room more often.

Here's how that focus worked...

SUNDAY - I spent the majority of my time last night sulking about not linking up with Cynthia's Quilty Orphan Adoption over on Quilting is more fun than Housework.  I had intended to choose a project (or 2 or 3!) to adopt out to some unsuspecting... er... enthusiastic quilter, but each time I went in the studio, some other task caught my attention.  I even had a blog post partially prepared!  :o((

Today, I was more productive.  My Quilt Bee met for a Charity Sew Day to benefit hurricane victims.  We decided to participate in the MSQC Pillowcase Drive.  Between the five of us, we made 16 cases:

You can read more about our Pillowcase-a-thon in today's Sew Some Love Sunday post.

MONDAY - Knit Group met today and tonight was Quilt Guild. Quilt judging was the topic of the evening's talk.  This shot is for the RSC Quilters reading along:

There's ORANGE in that quilt!!  :o))

TUESDAY - Sew Day at D's house.  I brought my (BIG) bag of tricks, but concentrated on some trimming:

Some cutting... in ORANGE...

... And I'm ready to begin work on my SJS blocks:

 Maybe NEXT week!!

I also worked on finishing up the two pillowcase kits that I brought home after Sunday's Pillowcase-A-Thon:

Mistakes were made, but the recipients will never know.
I switched the accent strips on these two!  :o((

WEDNESDAY - The Asheville Trip (postponed from last week) went well.  The Author and I visited a lovely shop called Friends and Fiberworks:

The purpose of the trip was a Book Signing event for The Author:

You can get your copy of
Malice In Wonderland: A Knitting Game Mystery
at this Amazon LINK or the following links will take you to Ravelry for the shawl pattern
or for a signed copy of the book.

For me, it was a Wine and Cheese Party with a side of knitting... er... yarn buying:

PHOTO CURRENTLY UNAVAILABLE!!!  (Shh!  DH is wandering around near where I'm typing!)

THURSDAY - My weekly Quilt Group took a field trip to Pineapple Fabrics.  I didn't NEED to buy more fabric, but...

I was "the winner" by about $5.00, but if I had put that last FQ back, it would nearly have been a 3-way tie!!

FRIDAY - Coffee Club meeting today.  Strange day with only three in attendance, down to two after only a very short time.  That's OK!  Look what a difference a week made on my Wolkig by Martina Behm:

I had some shopping to do in the afternoon, but in the early evening I did something new-to-me and entered The Blogger's Quilt Festival... TWICE!!  You can follow these links to entry one and entry two.

SATURDAY - Oh, PLEASE!!!  Let me just sit and veg on the couch today!!!  Well... AFTER finishing this post and joining Angela's LINK PARTY over on the So Scrappy blog.  :o))

ORANGE is September's Color of the Month and if that's one of your favorite colors (like it is mine!), you are sure to enjoy having a look around all the participating blogs.

I leave you with some ORANGE goodness out in the wild...

... And from my closet:


An unexpected rainbow:

Until next time...
Get Scrappy!!!
