Welcome to Week 8 of the Rainbow Scrap Challenge!! My rainbow sewing isn't going very well thus far. I seem to be opting out of my RSC block plans in favor of the "Fiona Basket of the Month" Club. So far, that's not done, either!!
SUNDAY - Is it terrible that I can't remember what happened? I knew there was a reason that I try to update the post as the week goes along!
MONDAY - Monthly Quilt Guild was tonight. The speaker brought what looked to be 100 quilts. It was SEW entertaining!!
TUESDAY - Hair appointment and Girls Night Out. I completed the first row on the body section of my sweater... Incorrectly, but I'm going with the assumption that I can correct it on the return row. We'll see...
WEDNESDAY - Alycia released Clue #2 of The Patriot Mystery.
THURSDAY - Knit Dinner was canceled due to lack of participation this week. :o((
In order to console myself, I decided to go get a manicure. My cuticles were a mess! Plus, I finished up my day earlier than expected. Sometimes, we just need to pamper ourselves (even when there's only ONE week left before a new RSC Color of the Month.) Amazing what one extra coat of polish does:
FRIDAY - I spent the morning with a friend, the afternoon was spent sewing with Needleb. I did some commission work:
But... I ended up with the evening to myself. What better time to dig out a quilt project and load up the longarm?!
Well, I didn't really need to dig, as my antique Double Wedding Ring quilt has been thrown across the rails for at least a week now. Here it is ready for quilting:
SATURDAY - It's time for the weekly LINK PARTY over on Angela's So Scrappy blog. I'll catch up with you tomorrow. I'm off to the Mid-Atlantic Quilt Festival in Hampton, Virginia. The bus leaves at 6 AM and I'm pretty sure that Angela's not awake yet.
Oops!! Ran out of time before leaving and I just got home. It was a LONG day, but SEW much fun. Here is a pretty PURPLE border in a quilt book prize on the bus:
Rainbow-licious jacket in the Hoffman Challenge:
Simple designs can be SEW effective. This (PURPLE) appliqued Paint Chip Challenge Quilt at the Show is a great example:
The good news? I didn't spend too much money (just about average for the bus.) However, the 47 quilters on our bus spent a combined total of just over $7000 dollars!!! (You're welcome, Virginia state economy.)
While you are roaming around BlogLand this weekend, be sure to check out Libby's new Magical Mystery Block Quilt-Along.
Until next time...
Fun and busy week! And purple was always on your mind, till your nails ;))ReplyDelete
Thanks for the shout-out, Joy! I've always wanted to go to Mid-Atlantic. Maybe next year once I'm 125 miles closer!ReplyDelete
Purple manicure - I love it! Your DWR is gorgeous - can't wait to see it when then quilting is done.ReplyDelete
Sounds like a fun field trip ;-) Ar yo inspired now to make a gazillion more quilts?ReplyDelete
Sounds like a lot of fun! I was walking around in the woods this weekend. Love the nails.ReplyDelete
Just live vicariously on other bloggers' blocks until you can catch up. Love the purple nails! I tend to scratch a new manicure the moment I step into my sewing room. Congrats on yours lasting long enough for a pic (LOL). Sandy at sewhigh.blogspot.comReplyDelete
Looks like you had a great time on your trip and a very productive week.ReplyDelete
