ScrapHappy Saturday - RSC18 - Week 6

Welcome to Week 6 of the Rainbow Scrap Challenge!!  This week, I concentrated on settling into my new schedule.  Not a lot of PURPLE sewing took place.  :o((

SUNDAY - Laundry filled my free time.  (I know, BIG thrill, right?!)  Well, that and the Super Bowl (American Football tradition.)  I only watch for the commercials and the halftime show.  Boy, was THAT ever a waste of time!!!  On the upside, I managed to (re)finish Right Side Short Rows on my Hoodie Shawl Cardigan.  (Yes!  Finish.  Again!)  It didn't work out so well the first time around.  I'm confident that things look better (and actually line up properly) this time.  :o))

MONDAY - Grocery shopping and associated tasks filled my afternoon free time. (Bet you're really wishing you could be me!!  Sigh... Not so much, huh?)  The evening hours were filled with writing and releasing my Mail Call Monday post and catching up with what's going on out in BlogLand.  No sewing.

TUESDAY - Banking and bill paying ate up a fair amount of the afternoon's free time.  I also wrote and released my Scrap Attack Tuesday post.  I'm SEW glad that Sarah over at Confessions of a Fabric Addict offered this challenge!  Check back at the end of the month to see what I accomplished.

WEDNESDAY - Today was Knit Group (on its new day, just for me!), followed by some sewing time with Needleb.  I suppose you might be wondering if I got anything accomplished.  Here it is, in living color!  A little bit of PURPLE sewing:

Special thanks to Diane!!  The block with the cool swirls and funky off-kilter slashes was in one of her gifted scrap bags.  What FUN!!

THURSDAY - Hmm... Are you beginning to see a pattern???  No quilting, but I do have a piece of PURPLE knitting to show.  Not mine!  It's an upcoming pattern from my friend Emily:

A very difficult shade of purple to photograph, I might add.

FRIDAY - Acclimating to a new schedule is hard work!!  Turns out that quilting this afternoon wasn't much easier.

I started with MORE cutting for the Tie Quilt:

Then, moved back to my black scrap basket in process, followed by the brown one.  Neither held my interest for very long.

Instead, I layered and quilted the top for a sweet little Quilted Yarn Bowl to be gifted:

It's been trimmed up and is ready for assembly.  Hooray!!

SATURDAY - It's that time, again.  LINK PARTY day over on the So Scrappy blog!!!  Head over to see the PURPLE goodness.  Also, give a go at Mari's Squared Away block for February.

Until next time...
Get Scrappy!!!


  1. Pretty purple blocks, seems like you have finally some purple scraps!

  2. I feel like your schedule should be made around quilting - not laundry bills etc - ha ha ha! Here's to getting into a new routine!

  3. Some weeks are more productive than others, but living a quality life is most important.

  4. I like those purple scrappy blocks, Joy! They look like fun!

  5. You crack me up. No I don't wish I were you. I have my very own Mt. Washmore to tackle. And today's the day, for me. So I'll pass. Love the swirly fabric in the purple blocks too. ;^)

  6. Aw, you sound a little "blue" that you didn't get much "purpling" in this week! Hopefully next week will have you stitching in purple style :)

  7. Hope you adjust to the new schedule. Until then, even a little sewing is better than no sewing at all.

  8. Love the look of your purple blocks you got done. This week you will get more sewing done.

  9. Adjusting to new schedules is hard. Hopefully things will get settled and you'll be working in more sewing time soon.
