ScrapHappy Saturday - RSC18 - Week 28

Welcome to Week 28 of the Rainbow Scrap Challenge!!  I'm SEW pleased to be easing into a (hopefully) itch-free week.  Things are definitely looking up.

SUNDAY - Mari from The Academic Quilter has released this month's Squared Away Sampler block TUTORIAL.  Take a look and think about giving it a try.

MONDAY - I joined the Monday Knitters for tea at Reed's in Mebane.  I went last week, but that day was little more than an itch-induced daze!

TUESDAY - It was a long day, but I didn't accomplish much.  Well, except for layering Dad's Ties for Molly on the longarm

No photo.  :o((

WEDNESDAY - Good news...  I got a start on the tie quilt:

 And then I couldn't stop!!  :o))

It is FINALLY quilted!!!  Now, I just have to finish the binding (sometime between tomorrow and Saturday) so that it will be ready to send out in the mail next week.

THURSDAY - Enjoying a peaceful morning with my Weekly Quilt Group at Jean's house.  I wasn't able to join them for lunch, but it was good to spend time with friends.

FRIDAY - Knit Group in the morning was followed by cleaning up my sewing table in the afternoon.  I need to clear some space for starting a new project (once the tie quilt is complete.)

I did stop by my favorite resale shop to see what wonderful items I could find in July's Color of the Month...

Just inside the door, a RED couch:

A circular candle holder:

I was lured by the display or RED purses:

Hmm... this bracelet is too big for me:

As were the RED readers on the way out the door:

SATURDAY - It's LINK PARTY day over at the So Scrappy blog.  Angela hosts a weekly link-up for sharing our Rainbow Scrap Challenge progress.  This week, you are sure to be seeing RED.

With that, I'm on my way out the door to visit with members of The Unskilled Quilt Guild.  Should prove to be a FUN day!  Why?  Well... I basically invited myself (since I'm an honorary member) and the host's response was, "Sure!!  The more the merrier."  :o))

I'll report back about that on Wednesday, so come back soon.

Until next time...


  1. What a fun 'non-itchy' week you had! Congrats on getting the tie quilt all quilted ... and hopefully finished by today.

  2. Looks like a fun scavenger hunt for all things red! I don't think I would like a red couch, though... Too much!:)

  3. Congrats on getting the Tie-quilt quilted. I love the red items you have fun and the red glasses look good on you. Enjoy another itch-free week. ;^)

  4. I just ordered a pair of red glasses! And I love the red nails, too. Here's to an itch-free week!

  5. (Laughing at Libby's comment!!!)
    Glad you've got that itching under control. Life's too short to spend it scratching!

  6. Glad the itchy stuff is done. Sounds like a fun week of stitching. Enjoy the rest of your weekend, hopefully with some binding!

  7. Interesting red finds. Thanks for sharing your quilting and the resale shop.

  8. Love the pic of the red readers. Happy sewing!

  9. How can you be a member at all? You're a VERY skilled quilter! :)
