ScrapHappy Saturday - Pink Progress

I hope that your pink scraps are seeing some action so far.   I am enjoying a fresh start despite the news and everything that is happening in real life right now.  Sydney spent the week with strep throat.  It is a sad day when you are thankful for a bacterial infection because the alternatives are all scary.  Ryan is headed back to the University of Florida today.  All of his classes are online, but he still wanted to go and be there in person.  He had to plan his move in time so that he could get his scheduled Covid-19 test which is required for everyone.  Anna is a complicated story, I'm not sure if she will be allowed to return because she has been having some more serious issues that I haven't really discussed online.  She is stable now, but being away and unmonitored is a scary thought for her right now.  So I guess you can see why fabric is such a joy right now.  Sewing is uncomplicated, brings immediate satisfaction and doesn't require any scary decisions.   I am loving my pink scraps right now and very much looking forward to making more shoofly and silly star blocks today.   Uncomplicated, easy, and pretty.  Yes, that is a great plan.  Please share your pink progress so far.  It is fun to see other people creating and to hear about their own ups and downs.

Sorry to hear that Anna is struggling. I'm all to familiar with the challenges some college students face, as one of mine is currently at home. Parenting is not the easiest job on Earth, is it?!

Hope your daughter's struggles get better. We're supposed to worry about our kids. It's part of the job. Try not to worry too much.

I love it when a plan comes together. Finished my planned blocks earlier than expected, leaving time for other projects to emerge this month. Historically haven't used a lot of pink in projects, so it is nice to play with a fresh color.

Technology gremlins is playing tricks today. The picture will load, just a case of a little bit of patience. Finally getting to my scraps, not having to chose a colour unblocked my quilters block. Pink is now being used, just the fact that the pressure of which colour to pick first. Omygosh has a few more blocks in one week, than what it got in three years. Lift off.

I love your pink star blocks. Maybe the reason I love fabric so much is for similar reasons to yours. Fabric can be a comfort. Even to just look at it.

I’m so sorry life has been challenging for you and your kids. I hope you can find some peace and safety in the coming weeks!

Hang in there, Angela. Life is especially stressful right now and with everything you have going on, is probably overwhelming. Prayers for your family. I don't have pink progress yet, but hopefully next week!

Mayleen said...

Prayers for you, your family, and all of us who stitch! I've been glad for sewing machine therapy this week. This is my first time participating. Thank you!

I like making the hashtag blocks, with pink scraps, but there does not seem to be any way to post unless you have your own blog. Is that correct?

Carol Andrews said...

We need to remind ourselves that things will get better. 🤞🏻 In the meantime fabric therapy seems to be such a good thing for all of us.

My son was supposed to go back to college on the 18th but then his school announced that they are staying remote and not reopening the residence halls until February 1st. It is so hard for these kids, at a time in their lives when they're supposed to be on their own and developing that independence and self-reliance they will need as adults. I hope your daughter recovers soon (and yes, hooray for strep!!) and that the rest of your family remains safe!

Cathy Tomm said...

Great to join in again. Hope your family stays safe. My 2 boys are off to work in other cities this winter. Us parents will worry for them.

Nann said...

Nice to be back with RSC.

Susie H said...

On a personal note, I know that you will miss Ryan and I hope Sydney is feeling much better by now. Antibiotics should have kicked in by now. I hope that Anna's woes are heading in a positive direction. As mothers we worry about our children -- their health & happiness. I wish you peace and I'm so happy you have your quilting too. What would we do without our hobby!!??!! Your different projects have really taken off and look so pretty!

Thank you so much for posting and hosting the link party, Angela. I am so thankful that I found your blog a few weeks ago and look forward each day to see what you are up to. You have help create a spark in me to work on more projects. Happy quilting.

I am here to give my testimony about Dr Ose  who helped me in my life, i want to inform the public how i was cured from (HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS) by dr Ose spiritual, i visited different hospital but they gave me list of drugs like Famvir, Zovirax, and Valtrex which is very expensive to treat the symptoms and never cured me. I was browsing through the Internet searching for remedy on HERPES and i saw comment of people talking about how dr Ose spiritual cured them. when i contacted him he gave me hope and send a Herbal medicine to me that i took and it seriously worked for me, my HERPES result came out negative. I am so happy as i am sharing this testimony. My advice to you all who thinks that their is no cure for herpes that is Not true just contact him and get cure from dr Ose spirirtual healing spell cure of all kinds of sickness you may have. penis enlargement
Remember delay in treatment leads to death email him @ {oseremenspelltemple@gmail.com}
