SUNDAY - I spent most of the day glued to the couch. (Not literally, of course!) Catching up on what's going on in Blogland was the order of the day. I, however, take some time to sort and sew with some of my BLUE scraps:
Some of you may notice that I'm not in my usual spot and I'm not sewing with my usual machine. Crazy, right?! I just didn't feel like taking the time to unpack the Pfaff, since I have plans for an outing early in the week.
I matched up strips and sewed pairs, followed by pairs of pairs:
Why? I need a BLUE "Fiona" Basket, that's why. The small fabric basket was overflowing!! Forgot to get a shot of that, though. I'm sure you can imagine what it looks like. :P
MONDAY - Knit Group didn't go as planned. I started with a sweater that was covering my shoulder and ready for me to start knitting the body:
I left with it ripped back to the shawl portion of my Hoodie Shawl Cardigan. As it turns out, I had gotten a bit off. The stitching deviated too far from the pattern and would have been a glaringly obvious mistake. :o((
TUESDAY - I traveled back in time. Well, maybe not quite, but I did take a trip to Raleigh to quilt with some old friends! We all had a productive day. Here's what I accomplished...
I delivered a Mug Rug that I agreed to make back in October:
Completed another as a Hostess Gift for a dear friend:
I enjoyed this Mug Rug for a little while before presenting it:
And, finally, I completed That 80's Quilt:
WEDNESDAY - No quilting took place today. I did write a post about quilting. Sorry! That's over on my Quilt Bee's blog.
THURSDAY - Weekly Quilt Group met today. I brought along the completed That 80's Quilt to share with the group:
Today's meeting will be my last one for a while. My schedule is about to change and SOMETHING has to give!! Unfortunately, Quilt Group is IT. :o((
FRIDAY - Sweater Class saw a lifeline being added and the first of the short rows being re-knit. Ripping and re-knitting doesn't bother me very much. (Well, as long as Threebagsfulled is the one doing the ripping!) Some people hate it and I think those people could use an attitude adjustment. I consider it to be more value for my yarn dollar!! :o ))
During the afternoon, I was scheduled for a surgical procedure. No worries. I was the one performing the surgery on a special lovey!!
I picked up the patient before Knit Group so that I could go straight to Needleb's afterwards. Unfortunately, I had to swing back by the house because I forgot one key surgical implement... fusible interfacing!!!
Fortunately, that didn't take too long and I was able to head in to surgery right after lunch. There will be a more detailed account in the coming week's Wonderful Wednesday post, but here's a shot of the patient while in recovery:
With the surgery complete, I went on to other BLUE projects...
One Tiny Nine:
Some random scraps:
Toward a piece of "made" fabric in BLUE for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. Another "Fiona" Basket is in my future! I succeeded in creating two small panels:
SATURDAY - With the end of another week, we have come to another LINK PARTY day over at the So Scrappy blog. I hope you find time to visit all of the RSC Quilters' links. I can assure you, there is lot of BLUE loveliness going on.
Linking up with Cynthia for Oh Scrap, too!
Until next time...
