ScrapHappy Saturday

Every week right now, I say the same thing.  Can you believe how fast everything is zooming right now?  I can barely keep up.  Just one week and three days until the first semester is done.  Maybe then I can breath again?

ScrapHappy Saturday

Everything is zooming by right now.  Just  few weeks of school before exams!  The kids are all excited and nervous and busy.  Last night we had a work Christmas party for Kurt.  His company has just been bought out so there was quite a bit of work talk at first.  It shifted over to more normal things later though, and it was fun getting to put faces and names together.  Both of the boys are off at a robotics tournament all day so it is just us girls at home.

Stringing Along

These string blocks have been hanging around in the background for ages and ages.  Every so often it is fun to pull out and sew mindlessly.  Someday they may turn into a quilt!  It looks like I need some more orange.  I think there is some laundry to be folder first.  Ah Sunday.  The girls want to make cookies and we are out of butter.  Ryan wants to go to the library.  Somewhere in there though, there are plenty of strings waiting to be sewn into more blocks.

ScrapHappy Saturday - Veteran's Day Weekend


For those of us in the US, Friday was Veteran's Day.  For the kids that meant a day off of school.  We all went to Universal Studios as a family.  We have annual passes and usually go first thing in the morning and leave when it starts to get crowded.  Yesterday that was just after lunch.  Even after just half a day of theme park fun, the kids were all fast asleep on the way home.  It's been a busy week!  I think staying up late to watch the election results did us all in.

Hopefully you will be able to spend some of your extra time off in your sewing space.  Misterlinky is below, share your projects with us all.

Slowdown on Sunday with Circles

At some point this year, my sewing slowed down to the point that it stopped.
 I had a bunch prepped and ready for long car trips, but there weren't as many of them this year.  Still, January and February are done.  March seems to be mostly done.
After that, it gets a little bit sparse.  June seems to be well represented, but there is plenty of sewing still to come.  I've got the stack sitting next to my spot.  I can get a few more in before it is time to take Sydney to lacrosse.
First though, I'll head over to Kathy's Quilts for slow stitching Sunday.

ScrapHappy Saturday -- November Already?

Feeling a bit behind?  November is just for you!  This is your chance to fill in the gaps, start the process of finishing, and generally get your ducks back into their rows.  No new colors are in store, but you are most welcome to add your own to fill in the gaps or use up the scraps.  That's what its all about here at RSC, using it all up.

ScrapHappy Saturday -- Halloween Edition


I hope you are all having a great fall.  For the US, Monday is Halloween.  Though our kids are getting too old to trick or treat, they are still looking forward to the festivities. Before that though, it is the weekend of the all school musical.  Just a few weeks delayed due to the hurricane.  Ryan is in the chorus and Anna is on the tech crew.
