SUNDAY - It's laundry day, as I just wasn't in the mood to tackle Mt. Washmore yesterday. Silly, really! Laundry is the easiest household chore there is. It gave me a chance to scare up some more PURPLE scraps that were hiding up in the studio:
During the downtime involved in doing laundry, I released another edition of Sew Some Love Sunday this afternoon.
MONDAY - I started quilting my newest Quilted Yarn Bowl... last night (and forgot to take a picture.) I started with orange and added lime today. I also released my newest Mail Call Monday post.
Oh! Sharon at Moosecraft wanted to know the shade name for this month's nail color. With 600 bottles from which to choose, it was a challenge to locate the right one!
At first, we thought it was MISS PURPLELARITY:
However, upon closer inspection, we realized that one was a little bit darker than the color I'm wearing. Here it is! It's PURPLE RAIN IN SPAIN:

TUESDAY - I added the hot pink quilting on my Quilted Yarn Bowl and trimmed it up. It's ready for assembly... tomorrow. The scraps came from Sandy at Sew... This is my Blog. Thank you SEW much, Sandy!!! I forgot to get a picture.
WEDNESDAY - Happy Valentine's Day, quilting friends!! Sandra at MMMQuilts! has a gift for us all. Today is the beginning of her Postcard From Sweden QAL:
Look!! PURPLE in it (for the RSC Color of the Month.)
THURSDAY - GALentine's Day Knit Night!! Wine might have been involved... depending on your preferences.
One friend had the house to herself and invited us all over for dinner (7 of us!) and knitting, but the quilter in me wanted to race home to start sewing on Alycia's newest mystery, A7 - The Patriot Mystery Quilt. She released the first clue yesterday. Looks like a fun clue!! Head over to see what she wants us to do.
FRIDAY - This week's (main) scrappy finish was a Quilted Yarn Bowl FOR ME!!! I used my "Sandy" scraps and finished this off on Wednesday afternoon while sewing with Needleb:
Please note that I added PURPLE binding (in honor of the RSC Color of the Month.) I am SEW happy to have a Quilted Yarn Bowl of my very own!! Special thanks to Sandy for the scraps and to my friend Britt for the lining fabric.
SATURDAY - Already?!?! Yep. It's that time, again. Head over to Angela's So Scrappy blog for the weekly LINK PARTY for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. You are sure to see projects in THESE shades and many more:
The color card shown above comes to you compliments of the local Big Box Home Store. Paint chips to inspire your RSC sewing.
I was a little late to the party, as my Monthly Quilt Bee meeting was this morning. We had a baker's dozen members show up to chat, share projects, and enjoy a fabulous Pot Luck lunch.
Until next time...
