Let's see how the week ambled on...
SUNDAY - I pulled out a PINK win this week, you guys. Here is my PINK Picket Star block for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge in need of pressing:
After finishing that, I decided to practice what I learned in Christina Cameli's class on Wednesday. Here is the jumping off point:
I've done curved piecing before.
I decided to take it a step further:
MONDAY - This morning, a couple of my friends and I met for coffee, knitting, and conversation:
This afternoon, I released a new Mini Monday post. In it, I shared a fast, fun project made for a special gift.
TUESDAY - Since Friday's phone conversation, I've been looking forward to today's Zoom session with LeeAnna @ Not Afraid of Color. We enjoyed a lovely visit:
If you look over LeeAnna's shoulder, you'll see what she was up to yesterday.
Do you recognize the blocks? They are from a tutorial posted on my blog a few months ago. Magic Stars, anyone? Here's the LINK, in case YOU would like to give it a try, too.
Before dinner, my friend Deb @ Happy to be Scrappy alerted me to the fact that Angela @ So Scrappy had made the July Color Announcement. I went over to see for myself what was in store the the Color of the Month, as it will guide my scrappy sewing:
Seriously?!?! I just finished THREE quilted items over the course of the last two weeks. Lucky for me, I also have about a half dozen UFOs in Dark BLUE, too!
Tonight was the first Zoom-y Evening Bee meeting, after three months of staying home, it was SEW good to see these smiling faces:
WEDNESDAY - Just before my meeting with LeeAnna yesterday, I got a text from my friend Diane @ Stitch Studio. (Sorry! No internet presence, as far as I can tell.) The quilt that I made from HER scraps has now been quilted, just in time to add it to my Summer 2020 (Ravelry) UFO Club (There's still time for you to join in the finishing fun!) project list:
We made arrangements for me to pick up the quilt this morning. Look what was waiting with the quilt:
I'm SEW excited! The scraps occupied an entire produce bag:
Unfortunately, the bag and the quilt are currently in seclusion:
This afternoon, I released a Special Edition of Wonderful Wednesday. YOU won't want to miss it, especially if you like to enter PRIZE DRAWINGS!!!
THURSDAY - Last week's LIVE meeting/retirement party was a "one off." My morning hours were spent with my Weekly Quilt Bee, but we were back to our virtual meetings via Zoom. While it was AMAZING to see (almost) everyone in person last week, it was still good to catch up online today. We started off with a small crew:
Then a few more members showed up:
Deborah's screen shot!!!
It was a really nice meeting (and Needleb joined in near the end!)
Last night, I got a wild hair and decide to do an analysis of the group finishes for the 10th anniversary of the Club. This afternoon, I released the Spring 2020 (Ravelry) UFO Club - The Results post. Let me tell you, I was floored by the results! (In a good way.)
FRIDAY - This morning was reserved for ZoomKNIT. The following friends logged on for the meeting:
We invited a guest to join us today:
Before the meeting, I posted my Summer UFO List. I went crazy with options for this quarter. SEW many projects equals MORE opportunity for my mood to match my available choices. :o))
After the meeting, I sorted the scraps that I got last week and selected fabrics for my next batch of face masks:
SATURDAY - I'm not quite sure how 7 days can pass SEW quickly, but we have arrived at another LINK PARTY day over at Angela's blog So Scrappy. Since it's Transition Week, you may see PINK wrap-up posts for June, along with a fair number of Dark BLUE projects for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge's Color of the Month for July. Either way, you are sure to be inspired!
I'll be working on this Dark BLUE (modified) UFO from 2017:
(Again, sorry, Kevin!) I abandoned the stars during my state's Stay at Home order. I'm simply making what I can make with the pieces and parts of the Sapphire Stars Mystery that I have sewn. (As well as, throwing in some extra scraps to fill it out.) My work table was a mess and this project ended up being the "low hanging fruit." Let's just hope that I can locate the borders in that pit that I call a studio!
Lastly, Happy 4th of July to all of my American readers!
This holiday would normally mean food, family, and fireworks. Alas, this year, it just means there are a few more hours for quilting! :o))
I started a little celebration quilt a few weeks (months?) ago. It involved some Dark BLUE and today was the perfect day to work on the next step:
Until next time...
Scrap SEW safely!!!
