Welcome to Week 28 of the Rainbow Scrap Challenge!! This the first week for BLUE/BLACK/DARK NEUTRALS scrap sewing. I will tell you right now, you should NOT expect big things from me this month! I've got some things going on behind the scenes and won't have very much time to sew.
Let's see what I kept me busy...
SUNDAY - Sew Some Love Sunday
I buried the thread tails on these three quilts from Ann Z. on the way to my MIL's house for the holiday:
MONDAY - This morning, I met my friend Linda Illustrator to deliver 27 skeins of yarn for her charity knitting group:
There's even some Dark BLUE for my RSC Quilter friends:
During the late morning, I stopped by Knittingsuek's beautiful studio. My interfacing was ready for pick-up and she had a cute new block to show me:
In the midday, I delivered the quilts to Ann Z.:
I spent the afternoon with B, who was kind enough to help me with the beginnings of a massive studio overhaul. It got worse before it will get better, but that's the way these things go:
TUESDAY - I can't believe that I'm giving this quilt away! It was completed with a piece of B's floral fabric (to supplement my own), but the quilt insisted that it needed to leave my house. Big Star Country by Alycia Quilts, made as part of her A-6 Mystery QAL (and quilted by Alycia herself!) is going to live in California with one of my most quilt-worthy nieces:
WEDNESDAY - I had several appointments today, but no photos.
The highlight of my day was my weekly Zoom with LeeAnna @ Not Afraid of Color:
You might notice a different photo angle, as my computer perch was rearranged the other day.
THURSDAY - ZoomBEE...
... Was followed by a swim to the airport. (It was pouring down rain all the way there!) At one point, I was only going 40 mph on the interstate. No rush, as the flight was delayed because of that same rainstorm:
This afternoon, I quilted the first of four quilts that Carol needs for a special visit. The photo below shows a few of the threads that I pulled for consideration. Notice to my RSC Quilter friends... there's a Dark BLUE kitty peeking out from beneath the quilt top roller:
Have YOU seen the Novella pattern from Preeti @ Sew Preeti Quilts?!?! The adorable wall hanging/ table runner is available in her Etsy Shop HERE. It's ON SALE at a 25% discount ($6 US until Thursday, July 15, 2021.)
ZoomKNIT met this morning. Here I am, waiting to join the meeting:
This evening, I found that Angela had posted the Full Stop block for July. Head HERE to see the instructions.
SATURDAY - It's LINK PARTY day for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge! I hope you will join me in visiting Angela @ So Scrappy to see what the RSC Quilters have been up to this week.
Until next time...
