August PURPLE month for the RSC!!!
Many of the RSC Quilters are thrilled. Count me in their numbers. :o))
SUNDAY - This morning, I caught up with blogging friends. The plan was to go up to the sewing room after lunch, but...
A friend who lives in England shared the following LINK to the Festival of Quilts (online this year, due to the global pandemic.) Needless to say, I spent a couple of hours wandering around the show.
Late in the day, I hauled myself upstairs to do two things. One goal was to assemble the storage system that I picked up at my friend Candy's house a couple of weeks ago:
|With the latest NEW Blogger update, it seems that adding a caption|
is the only way to get an uncooperative photo to the center of the page.
DONE!! It's also loaded with the scrap bags which had previously occupied that space. Organizing will take place at a later date, as I had another job to do. It's a NEW month for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge (and I didn't get around to taking down July's quilts.)
|The bird in the tree has flown away. :o((|
|Multi-colored quilts, but...|
|... Not a lot of PURPLE for the RSC.|
DONE!! The studio Gallery Wire is decked out in (the few quilts that include) PURPLE and it seems that I have my task for August. Another mini quilt is in order. Luckily, I already have a plan in place.
I also took the opportunity to play with laying out a few Bonus HSTs which were leftover from last year's Pecking Order quilt:
MONDAY - It was a slow start to the week. I did manage to cut the pieces for my Scrap Buster Challenge block:
TUESDAY - With Sunday's Bonus block done, I only need to make ONE more before setting decisions can be made:
It pleases me to be getting MORE use out of the Fossil Fern scraps that were given to me by my friend Gayle last year or the year before.
WEDNESDAY - I skipped out on grocery duty AGAIN!! This is the second week in a row that I've called in my"assistant" so that I could go have coffee with my friends:
On the way home, I stopped by Knittingsuek's house to check it the quilt plan for her latest quilt:
(One of) My RSC block(s) is done for the month. I have to say, I am THRILLED!!! It only took EIGHT MONTHS, but I got it right on the first try:
Most of these were used in the quilt that I gave away earlier this year. LINK!!!
The late afternoon found me Zooming with LeeAnna:
THURSDAY - Today is ZoomBEE. 10 quilters joined in:
|Or not! This kitty visit photo didn't give us time to smile.|
FRIDAY - I had planned to start my day with this week's ZoomKNIT meeting, but was only able to pop in before anyone else arrived to say that I had an urgent errand to run:
After spending a few minutes with them, I had to say goodbye. It was my day to help another friend and a quick grocery run was needed today. It was the first time I've stepped foot in a grocery store since March!! (I thought I had avoided the need to go inside, by placing a pick-up order last night, but another item got added to the list this morning.)
After lunch, I released a new Design Floor Friday post. Check it out to see what became of these PURPLE blocks:
SATURDAY - It's LINK PARTY day at the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. If YOU like PURPLE, it's a great day to visit Angela over at her So Scrappy blog! I am prepared for PURPLE month...
What fun I had playing with my PURPLE scraps this week!
Until next time...
Scrap SEW safely!!!
