Take a look...
SUNDAY - Sorting out PURPLE scraps during my Zoom session with Knittingsuek:
MONDAY - Work
Afterwards, I decided to load a quilt on the longarm:
(My adaptation of) Splash by Amanda Jean Nyberg. The pattern found in Sunday Morning Quilts was a bit too fussy for me to bother with, but I had fun "winging" it into a reasonable likeness of her quilt.
TUESDAY - Work was canceled, so I went shopping. Grocery shopping, that is! Sigh...
After lunch, I basted the quilt on the longarm:
And sorted my PURPLE scraps into a variety of strip lengths:
WEDNESDAY - Today was my scheduled day off, as I had an appointment with my friend Hilary. She presented me with a copy of her latest book, Dead By Design. Thanks, Hilary!!
Updated to add: I've waited 2+ years to get my hands on this book. If you like cozy mysteries or knitting, you NEED to read this book!! It was an intriguing who-done-it set at a Knitting Retreat in Scotland. Long enough to be completely satisfying, but short enough to still qualify as a quick read. Totally enthralling!
Hilary also gave me this lovely new shawl - and it's not even my birthday! The color is just perfect for this month's Rainbow Scrap Challenge. Guess what? It was knit from yarn scraps:
I got home just in time to Zoom with LeeAnna @ Not Afraid of Color:
THURSDAY - Work was followed by a new look at the property next door:
FRIDAY - Knit Group...
Was supposed to be followed by work, but instead, I ended up with the day off. Yay!!
I made use of the extra time by shopping for replacement rainboots. Mine sprung a leak the last time I wore them! Which ones do YOU think I bought? The blue paisley or the floral boots:
HINT: There are some little PURPLE flowers on the floral boots.
After lunch I did some scrappy PURPLE sewing. Check back on Tuesday to see what became of these:
Later, while making dinner, I noticed a double rainbow out the kitchen window:
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...
