April's final "purple" Saturday post

I must be getting old - the days and weeks just seem to be flying past at warp speed - and I'm not!  I only had my 5 Rainbow Scrap Challenge braid strips to finish for April - they've been cut and ready to sew for at least 2 weeks - but it took until today to finish that part of the project.  As I've mentioned before, I don't have a lot of purple fabrics, so these are the same 6 or so fabrics that I've used for my other RSC blocks.  Here are the strips with April's contribution:
I folded the bottom 2 strips - it's getting harder to catch all of the strip in one photo!
And then, continuing the purple theme, I made a purple ("Perfect Plum") birthday card for a lady at church - her birthday falls a few days from now, but I'll only see her tomorrow, so she'll get her card then.  I didn't set out to make a purple card, but it worked out perfectly!  Here's what I mean:
I'm not sure if I'll get my ALYoF project done for Wednesday - I'm working hard to make it happen! Having the 'flu for a few days this past week didn't help - but I had some sewing time today, and a few more blocks were assembled - including 1 or 2 purple ones!  (Do I sense a theme? LOL)  You'll have to check in here on Wed. to see if I was successful.
Thanks for stopping by!


  1. You have used some very pretty fabrics. You have a colourful mix.

  2. I look forward to seeing your braid blocks come together. Hope you are well soon.

  3. I am so not a purple person. I need to expand that area of my stash, for sure!

  4. Love your card!
    Love the concept of your blog.
    I'm QuiltNCards, but I hardly ever have a card to share. Right now we are packed up getting ready to move, and all the stamps, etc. are in boxes. Ugh!

  5. Nice work lady! Great productivity. I made a card today today for our TC student.... Based it on "Help Me Find It" by the Sidewalk Prophets
