ScrapHappy Saturday - Parade of Purple


What a long strange week it has been!  Sorry for my recent absence from blogging and e-mail, and anything fun -- life has got me running to keep up.  This is always a busy time at school, but Lacrosse this year is pushing me past busy.  The recent business trip of my dear husband helped push me right to the point of wondering if I could get it all done.
It will, of course, all get done.  It always does.  April will be busy month, but after that things will be much calmer I hope.  So many apologies to the 153 people who sent e-mails.  I will try to start working my way down the list today.
There was absolutely no sewing for me this week.  Thankfully I had pre-scheduled of couple of blocks earlier this year.  You may have noticed the orange block on April 1 was one of those.  Ooops!  That was supposed to show up later, sorry for any confusion that it caused.  April is indeed the purple month.
To take care of a little business, I did the drawing for the March fabric giveaway of beautiful hand dyed fabric from Vick Welsh.  I had to draw twice because the first winner was a spam comment.  I really should go back and remove some of those.  So on try number two, the lucky winner was Sherrill who blogs at Quilting in my Sleep.  Congratulations Sherrill.  If you will send me your snail mail address, I will send off your fabric.

Hope things calm down for you soon! Love purple but not sure how much I've got. We'll go and have a rummage in my scrap box!

I don't want to discourage but...I don't think life ever slows down even when you get older and kids have left home!

Life sure does have a habit of throwing us too many things at one time, doesn't it? Just glad everything is okay with you and yours :) Looking forward to some fun in PURPLE!!!!

Love purple! Hopefully the craziness of life calms down for you soon.

I guess I got impatient and thought for sure the color was orange. So off I went making all my blocks in orange. So when you pick orange I will pick purple and get back on track. Thanks for all you do to let us share..

Congrats to Sherrill! Don't you hate those spam comments?!?
Take good care of yourself and don't get too run down. Hope you'll have time for some relaxing slow stitching tomorrow!

You've got a lot on your plate...children AND color challenge addicts!

It always seems like there are a million things to catch up with after a vacation. Hope things calm down for you soon.
Loving all the purple!

Kate said...

Vacations are such fun, but do have the unwanted side effect of putting one behind on bunches of stuff. I'm really enjoying all the RSCS blocks. I have lots of purple scraps, so I'm looking forward to having lots of fun this month!

Angie said...

Purple scraps are at the ready, but I haven't really started to play.

You're doing such a great job of this sampler, it must be taking up a lot of time and energy. Really appreciate it! And am looking forward to playing in purple for April

Sherrill said...
