Read on to find out what scrappy happenings occurred in the past seven days...
SUNDAY - I spent the afternoon working in the new studio. I mentioned the progress in the following email to Sarah @ Confessions of a Fabric Addict:
DH set up a series of fans throughout the 2nd floor in an effort to cool the studio. It worked! The temperature dropped to 80 and I was able to get a good bit done yesterday (with help and moral support from my good friend B.) 3 boxes were emptied completely and another 5 were divested of the books held within. Portions of 6 bins were put away and thanks to DS2, I've got a plan for bringing 2 chests of drawers into the room for additional fabric storage. Yep! It was a good day.
Thank you to my friend Beth who stopped by yesterday to drop off a bag of delicious Cookie Gurlie cookies, a pot of mums for the front porch, and a fan (on loan) for the studio so that I could get some work done in there:
MONDAY - Work continued in the studio, but you didn't get to see what happened yesterday. The room, according to B (who was on hand to help me), is starting to look a bit more Joyful:
TUESDAY - The library is looking good, but this was the best photo I could get, as there is still a tall row of boxes across from the bookshelf and it's blocking the light:
This evening, my Monthly Quilt Bee met LIVE @ the back of the parking lot across from Whit's Frozen Custard:
WEDNESDAY - Welcome to September! There's been no word from Angela regarding the new Color of the Month, but I believe it will be ORANGE or Light/Bright GREEN. Incorporate both in your September 2021 TABLE SCRAPS Challenge and you'll be set! OK, ok... You can wait for the official word, if you want. :o))
This morning, I did find that Kat @ Kat and Cat Quilts released the Fall Block Drive for Covered in Love. It looks like a fun one and she's going with Fall colors. I hope YOU might be inspired to send a block (or 2 or 10!!)
Please be sure to check out my exciting Wonderful Wednesday post, if you haven't seen it yet.
This afternoon, I enjoyed my weekly Zoom with LeeAnna @ Not Afraid of Color:
THURSDAY - My Weekly Quilt Group went LIVE at Deborah's front yard. I forgot to take a group photo, but here is one of our lovely hostess with the beginnings of the 4th pillow top in her series:
Here are the others, arranged on her sofa with a small older cushion:
FRIDAY - ZoomKNIT was a small affair this morning:
I had two appointments scheduled this afternoon and managed to move another load of stuff out of my old studio afterwards. Let me tell you, I am SEW tired, but all that's left is a couple of boxes, a couple of bins, and the longarm!!
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 (providing that Angela is feeling up to hosting this week.)
Edited to add...
Angela did post a link party and has decided on ORANGE for September's Color of the Month. Have fun with that, Quilters! Pumpkins? Autumn leaves? SEW many possibilities for fabric play.

Until next time...
