ScrapHappy Saturday - RSC 24 - Week 8

Welcome to Week 8 of the Rainbow Scrap Challenge!!  This week is a moderately busy one.  There are regularly scheduled events on the calendar, as well as a special event.  I'm hoping there's still time for quilting and art-ing, too.

Continue reading to see how things went...

SUNDAY - The day began with my Weekly Morning Art Zoom where I enjoyed our monthly game of Roll the Dice with the following prompts - Markers, Florals, Fabric, Write it, and Unique attachment (pin, stitch, staple, etc.) - and made the following page:

After lunch, it was time for my Weekly Zoom call with Knittingsuek:

MONDAY - Work...

Was preceded by a coffee date with my friend Tracy.  I was REALLY LATE, but she was very gracious with her forgiveness.  Here we are leaving for our respective work day:

After work I took a trip to Chapel Hill for my monthly Quilt Guild meeting.  Tonight was the reveal of the 2024 Guild Challenge.  I am the Challenge Chair.  We are in a Quilt Show year, so the Silent Auction Committee asked that I keep their event in mind when issuing the challenge.

I thought long and hard about a theme.  I wanted something that would appeal to the masses. The Birds, Bees, Flowers, and Trees + Butterflies Challenge that I presented was well received, yet not a single person signed up this evening.  I was a bit sad, but in my defense, there was a HUGE fabric sale going on at the meeting!  Hopefully, next month's meeting will open the flood gates for sign-ups.


I was greeting by this sign when I arrived home so things are moving forward on the new neighborhood next door:


Zoom with LeeAnna @ Not Afraid of Color:

Some art for the More Than Zero class released on Monday from Caylee Gray, Fairy Art Mother of Get Messy:

THURSDAY - QUILT CON!!!  Knittingsuek and I made the trip to Raleigh for the event:

We ran into members of the Weekly Quilt Bee in attendance...

Met a new friend...

Enjoyed a "Fan Girl" moment...

And met up with Stacy before we left for home:

The event was exhausting and exhilarating at the same time.

Here's a preview:

Before work, I attended Knit Group AND remembered to take a photo:

After dinner, I worked on "swatching" some new-to-me stencils (Thanks, Julie!) during tonight's Weekly Evening Art Zoom:

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.  I shared a glimpse of what I worked on in yesterday's entry.  Visit the accompanying link to see the other side.

Until next time...
