There is a bit of good news, though, so keep reading...
SUNDAY - I started the week with a Zoom call to my good friend Knittingsuek...
Then PURPLEafied my gallery wire display:
Just before lunch, I headed over to B's house for an Artist's Play Date:
I worked with PURPLE papers...
MONDAY - Today was a work day. I was rewarded with a Quordle WIN:
TUESDAY - I combined scraps of PURPLE paper with a bit of the same color paint for today's Fodder Challenge lesson on nested "luggage" tags. The page begged to be decorated with flowers:
WEDNESDAY - Spent a portion of the morning digging through the PURPLE scrap basket at the top of the post. Here's what I found:
The off-cut corners from the making of that Quilted Scrap Basket. I ripped out the stitching on this one...
... And I'm in the process of turning the other one into a little pin cushion:
During my weekly Zoom call with LeeAnna @ Not Afraid of Color I was oh-SEW-happy to report that I had actually done some sewing:
THURSDAY - Another work day, another Quordle WIN. This time with a banner that flashed across the screen saying I had gotten a Birdie award for getting all four words in only SEVEN guesses, but it disappeared before posing for its photo op:
FRIDAY - Another minimal collage. This one with a TRAVEL prompt. I accepted a map of Boston from a special book that Britt is beginning to cannibalize. I thought it would be perfect to pair with the boarding pass that I found in a recent thrift store book score. A couple of images from a travel article in an old Quilter's Home magazine filled out the design:
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.
Today's ICAD prompt was "Orange" so I have fun with this collage:
I went for full coverage, but need to go have the prescription checked. The glasses are tinted AND polarized, but I'm still getting sun glare headaches and I can't seem to see to read book print with them (even though they were made with my regular progressive script.) Anyone have experience with this issue? I was really looking forward to being able to read my book out on the back deck, by the pool, or at the beach. At the moment, none of those scenarios are remotely possible.
Until next time...
