For now, let's look back at the events of the last seven days...
SUNDAY - After yesterday's day-long quilting adventure, I slept late, had a slow day, and tackled Mt. Mount Washmore (a task made easier by our new-to-us Super Duper HUGE washing machine!)
MONDAY - I spent the afternoon trying on dresses for my niece's wedding. It's coming up in September and I didn't want the stress of waiting until the last minute (like I did for my nephew's wedding back in April.) These were the top contenders:
RSC Quilters should notice that nearly all of these are in the Color of the Month, a personal favorite of mine!!
TUESDAY - Day Two of deliberations on the dresses. I took them with me to my monthly evening Quilt Bee meeting. Their pick was this one:
Aside from that, I worked on another of my Scrap Attack goals:
WEDNESDAY - Day Three of deliberations on the dresses. The final choice was made... with the help of my family:
The returns were made well before the 6:00 deadline. They even offered me CASH back on my charge (which I seriously considered), but ultimately declined... Because BILLS!!!)
THURSDAY - I had hoped for a quick trip to my Weekly Quilt Group since they were meeting near me. How'd that work for me? It didn't! I got the meeting place confused. :o((
FRIDAY - Join with me in a happy dance, as we usher in the weekend!! :o))
Knit Group met this morning. I consulted with the pro about the state of my sleeves. They seem a bit wide near the cuff. We ripped them back to short sleeve length and I will try again.
To console myself, I joined them in a shopping expedition. I spotted these TEAL/TURQUOISE/AQUA treasures:
This one (minus the bag and shoes) came home with me:
After a stop for for lunch, I drove out to Sfgwife's mini-farm. She had a nearly completed scrappy quilt with TURQUOISE background to show me:
She also shared the bottom skein of AQUA (Wollmeise) yarn shown in the photo below for a new knitting project:
The main purpose of my trip was to raid her scrap stash for fun bits of fabric to expand my IMPROV Challenge quilt:
SATURDAY - Somehow, we have arrived at LINK PARTY day, again. The weeks have a way of passing quickly. Head over to Angela's So Scrappy blog to see what the RSC Quilters have been up to this week. You may even see some TEAL/TURQUOISE/AQUA month-in-review posts.
I'll leave you with one last look at the Color of the Month for June:
Until next time...
