ScrapHappy Saturday - RSC18 - Week 43

Welcome to Week 43 of the Rainbow Scrap Challenge!!  This week, I actually did quite a lot.  If you look closely, you'll see bit of GREEN in each of my projects.  :o))

SUNDAY - Mount Washmore and the computer ate up my day.  I have something dark GREEN to show you:

It's my "House Cozy" from Threebagsfulled.  I lost my way during the first KAL and she re-knit it during the Reprise KAL last year.  Since she was blocking for me, anyway, she decided that she might as well block this monster shawl, as well.  Thank you to the BEST Blocking Fairy around!!  :o))

MONDAY - Same old, same old. Or was it?!?  Not really.  Instead of sitting at the computer half the evening, I spent some time playing in the sewing room:

TUESDAY - Again?  Yep!  Tonight's activity was filling these two small pin cushions...

If you are Kevin the Quilter, you may recognize the stacks of fabric in the background!  Those are the pieces I was telling you about. You know? The ones for your mystery quilt!!

... And closing them up.  Here they are in their intended home:

Here's a closer look at them, displaying their intended purpose:

If you are my friend, Dee Dee, you might recognize some of these pieces and parts from the scrap bags that you gave me a few weeks ago.  I added a few of my own, too.
Thanks for feeding my Scrap Addiction!!

WEDNESDAY - I got up at o-dark-thirty and went right upstairs.  I did some quilting (Karen, you might remember those purple and GREEN HSTs!) on a very small quilt sandwich:

I did some sewing, because this isn't just any old small quilt sandwich that I'm sewing on:

Then, I ran out of time and I left for my day.  When I returned, it was rinse and repeat. Back at the sewing machine, I completed the task at hand.  A tall thread catcher...

... Which easily doubles as a beverage holder:

And 12 hours later, I'm all packed for SAFF!!

THURSDAY  - Last week, I stopped by my Weekly Quilt Group.  This week, I'm not even going to bother!  Here's why...



My constant companion, it seems, has not yet developed a taste for quilters.  Quilts, yes.  Quilters, not so much!  Besides that, the group blog mistress was away, but has since returned.  Whew!!

Well...  That and the fact that now, I'm heading out of town for the weekend.  Asheville here I come!!!  It's SAFF season.  :o))



You'll (probably) have to wait to hear more about that.  Sorry!!  Too much shopping , er... knitting to do.

As you well know, if you've read my blog for any length of time, it is also LINK PARTY day over at Angela's So Scrappy blog.  I doubt that I will be able to visit any of the RSC Quilters until after the weekend.  You go on ahead.  You'll see more dark GREEN sewing over there, anyway.  :P

Linking up with Amanda Jean at Crazy Mom Quilts.

Until next time...


  1. Love all your projects! Neat idea for the pin cushions. Easy to grab. Lovely shawl.

  2. I really like those long skinny pincushions, Joy! You could tuck them into lots of different little spaces where they might be needed. Have a fun weekend!

  3. Love the shawl! Finished objects are always great!

  4. Lots going on in your sewing room this week. Enjoy SAFF!

  5. Sooo many projects! How do you keep up with them all? I have a tall thread catcher much like that one, but I use it to toss in small scraps that I trim off while sewing bigger scraps. It's a crazy-scrap-lady kind of thing. You just never know when you'll need a 2" scrap. Doesn't it feel wonderful to have lots of projects to show for your week?

  6. Lovely projects! Great shawl!
    Gorgeous thread catcher!
