ScrapHappy Saturday - RSC18 - Week 27

Welcome to Week 27 of the Rainbow Scrap Challenge!!  I am sad to see the cool ocean colors of TEAL/TURQUOISE/AQUA go, but we have arrived at a new month.  That means that Angela announced a new Color of the Month.  July's color is:

Race through my week with me...

SUNDAY - The "official" release of the new Color of the Month.  I spent the day at Needleb's working on Dad's Ties for Molly.  I completed the last step prior to quilting... cutting the batting to size.  The quilt backing has been loaded onto the longarm and the top is waiting for the batting to be put into place:

Bits of the Color of the Month hanging from the rails.

The two-color binding was also prepared, but I seem to have misplaced it somewhere between Needleb's house and my own.

MONDAY - I ended up at Urgent Care after calling the Nurse Advise Line last night.  I've got a mean looking rash that has spread since I noticed it.  It burns and itches.  Probable diagnosis, prickly heat.  (That's right, the PA wasn't sure.)  Majorly  uncomfortable!!  :o((

I didn't do much today, but I posted the results the Spring 2018 (Ravelry) UFO Club.

TUESDAY - Back to the doctor today, as I was having an allergic reaction to the meds prescribed.  Back to the pharmacy, only to find that the NEW script hadn't been called in!!! :o((

While blog hopping this afternoon, I found that Bonnie Hunter from Quiltville released this year's Leader/Ender Challenge.  You can find it HERE.  It's one of my all time favorite patterns.  Here's hoping that I can get myself organized enough to participate!  (At least, the challenge runs for an entire year... even though it hasn't made a difference in the past.)  SEW many projects.  So little time!

If you haven't seen my Scrap Attack Report from June, it's been posted on the blog.

For my Rainbow Scrap Challenge friends, I unearthed RED scraps to play with this month:

WEDNESDAY - Happy 4th of July! to my American readers.  Here's hoping YOU enjoyed a day of celebration with family and friends.

After a miserable (nearly) sleepless night, I'm a wreck.  I simply MUST find something that helps relieve the discomfort.  Before. I. Go. OUT of my mind!!!  Sigh...

After dinner, I was able to finish up the Wonderful Wednesday post I've been working on.  Read all about it HERE.

THURSDAY - I had really hoped to get to my weekly Quilt Group meeting today.  Uncertain if my frazzled nerve endings would allow the excursion...

Surely, a FEW minutes wouldn't hurt:

The Future Quilter and I made a brief appearance.  It was SEW nice to see my quilty friends - even if I couldn't get any hugs!  :o))

FRIDAY - The weekend has arrived.  With it comes Vacation Week... Or will that be STAY-cation Week???  Only time will tell.

For now...

Bring on the RED - Nails, of course:

Oh!  You can find my Summer 2018 (Ravelry) UFO Club post by following THIS LINK.  My goal is to finish ONE of these projects by the end of the summer.  More would be better.  Wish me luck!
SATURDAY - It's LINK PARTY day over at Angela's So Scrappy blog.  Head over to see what the other RSC Quilters have been sewing up with their RED scraps.  (I'll update the link once Angela has released her post.)

Until next time...


  1. Sounds like you were very busy despite being "under the weather". Hope you are getting some relief from the discomfort( or down right "hurt").

  2. I hope you're feeling better by now and enjoying your vacation!

  3. Oh no! I hope you are feeling better this weekend. Itchy and allergic reactions are not fun.

  4. Happy vacation. Hopefully you will be feeling better soon. Looks like your reds are ready to roll.

  5. Hope you can get respite from the discomfort soon. Here, at least, the heat wave is over. We are now in "normal summer weather". Yeah! Have a great vacation. ;^)

  6. Hope your rash is better soon - I hate it when stuff interrupts my sleep!

  7. Take care of that rash, Joy. Hope you get comfort soon. You really took the "red" part of this challenge seriously, you over achiever, you. Hope you're feeling better to just giggle from that and not turn RED with anger. Relax as much as you can.

  8. Race through your week indeed! Look at you go, even with all the itching!
    (I've got so many allergies that I wish Calamine lotion came in a five-gallon bucket...)

  9. You have some pretty red scraps to play with there. Hope the rash clears up soon.

  10. Oh my, I feel for you, I do hope you are finding some relief from the discomfort and are able to get a good sleep. Still you seem to have had a busy and productive week, the leader ender project looks like fun, as do your pretty red scraps.

  11. So sorry you're suffering :( Itchiness is the worst, in my book. I hope you get your medications sorted out and start to get some relief soon!

  12. I hope your whatever-it-is and allergic reaction are both settling down. I apparently found some poison ivy, and it’s still spreading!

  13. SO much happy sewing. ( I LOVE RED) Hope that darn rash goes away quick!!!

  14. Rashes are no fun at all. Hopefully the rash is fading and you are feeling much more yourself (and more like stitching).
