ScrapHappy Saturday - RSC 20 - Week 37

Welcome to Week 37 of the 2020 Rainbow Scrap Challenge!!  Our hostess, Angela @ So Scrappy, called for RED sewing during the month of September.  I've been doing a little of that.  Come along and I'll walk you through my week.

SUNDAY - I started the holiday weekend (US Labor Day) with a fun sewing project:

I forgot to share it in Saturday's post, but if you look closely, you will see the little basket sports a tiny bit of RED.  It's SEW much fun to use my fabric (and batting) scraps!  :o))

This morning I released a new Sew Some Love post.  Prepare to be AMAZED!!!  You will not believe how many fabric squares arrived:

Look!!  On the top of the stack...
A bit of RED for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge.  :o))

MONDAY - Loading the longarm kept me busy...

Look, you guys!  Little RED kitties for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge.  :o))

... While I waited for Needleb to arrive.  She is came over to take some of those squares I showed you yesterday:

After our visit, I went back up to finish quilting, but you'll have to wait to see how that turned out.  October will be yellow month at the RSC and I think I want to finish the quilt then.

TUESDAY -  Today, I met my friend Hilary for some girl time:

We traded yarn-y tasks.  I attempted to figure out her pom-pom maker...

(Hopefully) It worked!

... While she wove in the ends of my Halloween Socks:


On the way home I stopped by Knittingsuek's house for a quick chat on her patio.  Can you believe that I forgot to take a picture with me in it, too???  Grr!

The purpose of the stop was to drop off...

A few scraps and...  Hey!  What's this???

Yep!  That adorable Large Quilted Thread Catcher I made over the weekend and judging by the smile on her face, she LOVES it:

Once I returned home, I did some more work on my new RED project for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge.  There is a funny story to go along with these X's.  They were inspired by my friend Diann @ Little Penguin Quilts...


... I'll explain once it's done.  Never fear!  It shouldn't be too much longer.  :o))

WEDNESDAY - Last night, I seamed this backing fabric from my friend Dee Dee and loaded the longarm for the 2nd time this week:

Another UFO and this one with RED dancing all over it:

Today, I had some paperwork to take care of and it was grocery processing day.

Early this afternoon, I met my friend Candy at our friend Joanna's house.  It was time for quilt pick-up:


... And Joanna's:

Later, I enjoyed a Zoom meeting with LeeAnna @ Not Afraid of Color:

THURSDAY - ZoomBEE with these quilty friends:

After the meeting, I laid out the RED sewing that I've been doing between my Secret Sewing project and a variety of  other tasks:

FRIDAY - ZoomKNIT with a few of my knitty friends:

The afternoon was spent working on my Secret Sewing project.  It's coming along nicely,  SEE?!  Here's a sneak peek:

Not to worry, readers, that's a Wonky Star and the points aren't required to be pointy.  The BIG reveal is coming soon!  Only two weekends and one work week remain.  YIKES!!  I better get quilting...

SATURDAY - The weekend has arrived and with it comes this week's LINK PARTY @ Angela's So Scrappy blog.  The Rainbow Scrap Challenge (RSC) is celebrating sewing up our RED fabric scraps.  If that's a favorite of yours, you won't want to miss it!

Until next time...
SCRAP sew safely!!!
