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