ScrapHappy Saturday - RSC18 - Week 34

Welcome to Week 34 of the Rainbow Scrap Challenge!!  During the past seven days, life has been a bit of a blur.  I usually try to add entries as they occur.  This week, not ONE entry until Friday!

Read on for the parts that I can remember...

SUNDAY - I spent the better part of the day switching off between tackling Mt. Washmore and working on "The Great Declutter of 2018."  The laundry was done by the end of the afternoon.  The decluttering was... not.

MONDAY - As I was cleaning up the living room, I uncovered my ORANGE paint card.  It's one (of many) that I brought home from the local Big Box home improvement warehouse to share during posts for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge: 

TUESDAY - A long day was followed by Girls Night Out.  A few people were missing, but those of us in attendance had an enjoyable evening (filled with some food, a glass wine, LOT of KNITTING, and a bit of UN-knitting, too!!)

WEDNESDAY - Spent some time in Urgent Care this afternoon.  No appointments were available at my Primary's office and the ear ache that I developed during the morning hours couldn't wait for tomorrow.  The pain was radiating in waves and was so intense that I wanted to cry.  The BAD news is there was fluid in my ear. The GOOD news is that is wasn't infected.

The following photo is a piece of cotton jersey that I did NOT buy last weekend while at the Going Out of Business SALE at K's Closet.  It has some pretty ORANGE roses, so I was tempted:

Oh!  I released this week's Wonderful Wednesday post.  Follow the link to find out about a couple of my kind and generous friends.

THURSDAY - I didn't sleep well, at all.  Let me tell you, waking up every hour is NOT very restful.  Stupid (generic) Sudafed!!!  The doctor suggested that I take it to help clear my ear.  Stupid me... forgot that my body simply cannot tolerate that medication!

FRIDAY - I've been up since 3-something  this morning.  I spent part of the time folding ALL the clothes on my "laundry chair" and got ready for my day when that was done.

On the agenda for today?  Knit Group, of course!  Let's not talk about how much ripping and redoing I had to do.  OK??  It's hard to knit and sleep at the same time.  LOL

Many shades of ORANGE goodness for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge in my Lady of the Lake quilt called Out on a Limb because, at the time, it was the biggest quilt I had ever made and it was made from a color combination that I had not used previously:

SATURDAY - It's LINK PARTY day over on Angela's So Scrappy blog.  Not sure that I will have time to join in the fun before leaving to meet Needleb and head over to the Donation Quilt Workshop for our local Quilt Guild.

I would normally say that I would check in this afternoon when I return home, but I'll be leaving for a "date night" with my DH (and our recently restored 1972 VW Bug Convertible) at a big Car Show/Cruise Night in a nearby town.

SEW... It looks like it may be tomorrow before I will get to check in on all of the other RSC Quilters.  You go on ahead.  Soak up some of that (fabric) sunshine in all of the ORANGE projects you are sure to see.

Until next time...


  1. Enjoy your day, cruising around town in a convertible beetle with DH sounds like a wonderful day. ;^)

  2. Oh my gosh, I'm sorry about your ear. I can't tolerate Sudafed either, but Benadryl does the trick. Plus it means I actually get to sleep, since it knocks me right out. Hope it's better by date night!

  3. Ouch! Hope the ear is healing and the pain is going away. Enjoy date night - sounds like fun.

  4. An earache is no fun! And on top of that - no sleep because of the medication... Hope you are feeling better! A ride in the VW bug sounds like a lot of fun!

  5. Love that cotton jersey with the orange roses! I would've been tempted, too - but I know I would've been stumped on how to use it. Date night and vintage cars - sounds like fun - hope you were feeling better!

  6. Wow! You had a busy week. Whenever I take Sudafed I can't sleep either. It wires me up. Sorry about the earache. Several years ago I had an ear infection that took a long time to heal. It was not fun especially while on vacation in Carolina Beach. When traveling to Raleigh I have stopped off in your town. If I recall there were some great antique shops. Love hearing you have a date night with your hubby! So sweet!

  7. Hope you enjoyed your date night. I have "a thing" for those paint chip cards myself and often refer to them.

  8. I'm really very sorry to hear that you aren't feeling well. Hope things are better now.

    I'm oddly comforted to find out that I'm not the only one who puts laundry away when she can't sleep...

  9. I'm sorry you had an earache! So painful! Hope you're feeling better and have a terrific date night :)

  10. Another busy week. Hope the earache is gone. Sudafed isn't kind to me either, so I avoid it unless the situation is dire. The date night sounds like fun. Have a great week!
