ScrapHappy Saturday - RSC20 - Week 9

Welcome to Week 9 of the 2020 Rainbow Scrap Challenge!!  This week, my post has been released early.  I'm headed out of town for a day and won't be taking my computer with me.  I'll be too busy checking out all the entries at the Mid-Atlantic Quilt Festival.  Look for me, if you will be there on Saturday!  I'll be wearing my "The Joyful Quilter" shirt, that is actually much whiter and a good bit brighter than the (nighttime) photo shows:

Here's how my week went...

SUNDAY - I released a new Sew Some Love Sunday post.  You may want to check out the #bushfireblocks that came in last week.  Here's a preview, as I worked on my own block:

Before that, but after last week's post, I released my Project QUILTING 11.4 post.

MONDAY - One job has gotten checked off the list. The backing for the Wedding Runner is ready:

Oh!  Guess who came home to a very happy mailbox today?  That would be me!!  These packages of #bushfireblocks arrived:

TUESDAY - Evening Quilt Bee met tonight.  I worked on trimming up HSTs for my niece's wedding quilt:

No ORANGE there, but Jean's project was dripping with it:

WEDNESDAY - Nails!! Sorry!  I'm off-cycle, again.  :o((

There's a wedding on the horizon and we're still several days away from the release of a new Color of the Month for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge.  Sad to say, I don't have a dress yet, so my nails needed to be ready for anything:

THURSDAY - I was lucky enough to be able to attend my Weekly Quilt Group this morning.  I haven't been in what feels like AGES!! Take a look at this gorgeous eyeful of ORANGE that we got in the form of Deborah's latest quilt:

As it turned out, my friend Dee Dee was there, too.  She was SEW surprised (and more than a little confused) when I delivered this little Thank You gift to her:

The order of the afternoon was to find a dress for an upcoming wedding (next week!)  Also on today's agenda is sharing this month's Gallery Wire.  There is only ONE truly ORANGE quilt:


There are bits of ORANGE all along the wire:

FRIDAY - Knit Group this morning and errands in the afternoon.  

Then, finally...

The weekend arrived and with it, the final #bushfireblocks.  More on that another day.  Right now, I have to get ready to go welcome my new neighbors.  That's right!!  "SC Sue" has officially moved to North Carolina.  Color me one happy quilter:

** Update:  The movers arrived too late, took too long, and she was still too tired from yesterday's drive to entertain an evening out at this juncture.  :o((

SATURDAY - It's LINK PARTY day for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge.  You'll find lots of scrappy ORANGE goodness over at Angela's So Scrappy blog.  I'll link-up and catch up with my RSC friends upon my return.  As I mentioned at the top of the post, I'm headed to the Mid Atlantic Quilt Festival on a bus full of quilters today. We are going to have SEW much fun!

For those of you who sent blocks for Australia...

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!  DH is scheduled to take care of those while I'm away.  Watch for the wrap-up next week, as I've got a time-sensitive post ready for release this week.

Until next time...
Get Scrappy!!!
