ScrapHappy Saturday... err... Monday - RSC17 - Week 43

Welcome to Week 43 of the Rainbow Scrap Challenge!!  This week has been a bit of a blur.  As you might know, I just came back from Quilt Camp.  What you might not know is that this (past) week I headed to SAFF.  Whew!  I'm exhausted.

Don't hate me because I've only cooked dinner TWICE in TWO WEEKS!!!  In my defense, I was busy working on a project with a deadline and had an evening meeting to attend.  They're big boys.  They can fend for themselves!!

SUNDAY - What did I do?  I have NO idea!  I did cook dinner, though.  Hush!!  Grilling burgers absolutely counts.  :P

MONDAY - Not the day I had planned, but a good day none the less.  I made an impromptu visit with an old friend... ALL DAY.  (I did manage to get home in time to make dinner, though.)

TUESDAY - What a busy day!!  I dropped my car off to have it serviced, had a dental appointment, sewed all afternoon, and then took myself off to my Monthly Evening Quilt Bee meeting.  Even took my sewing machine and managed a bit of PINK sewing:

A pocket lining for the "Great Bag Project."

WEDNESDAY - Another busy day filled with random tasks with a side of sewing.  Thank you, Needleb, for your help with my bag project.  I would NEVER have gotten those straps attached without your assistance!!  Just call me directionally challenged.

THURSDAY - Weekly Quilt Bee was this morning.  At MY house.  Here's my Show and Tell... the first completed bags:

YIKES!!!  I still had to pack and be out of here by noon.  I'm off to SAFF.  The good news is that they can't leave without me (since I am the designated driver... the one with the minivan!)

FRIDAY - Day One of SAFF!!  Hoodie Shawl Cardigan by Susanne Sommer times three:

Two of the happy knitters hammed it up:

These beautiful hand printed botanical bags were made by a friend of our friend Ashley and are found at Twist Fiber Studio:

SATURDAY - Not only is it Day Two of SAFF, it's also LINK PARTY day for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge!

I may be late, but I'll be there eventually.  Head on over without me.  You won't want to miss all of the fluffy PINK goodness that everyone has been working on this week.

Meanwhile, I attempted to hand wind a skein of yarn for a project.  It's not always an easy task:

Please notice the RAINBOW colored yarn and the PINK shirt!!

Mountain views from the festival exit:

Ahh... Asheville!!!

Until next time...
Get Scrappy!!!


  1. Busy, busy! Yes, it is good for the family to fend for themselves once in a while! Can't wait to see all those sewing results!

  2. You are a very busy lady! Looks like you're having a lot of fun.

  3. Sounds like you had fun, even with such a challenging schedule. Hope things have slowed down a bit and you can take a breath and sew.
