ScrapHappy Saturday - RSC15 - Week 11

Welcome to Week 11 of the Rainbow Scrap Challenge!!!  I hope to have a lighter schedule this week and hope to get MUCH more sewing done.  We'll see how THAT goes!  :o))

In the meantime, the flowers growing in my garden got the memo about the Color of the Month. These YELLOW daffodils began blooming BEFORE all of the snow and ice that we had two weeks ago and they are still going strong:

Oops!  Looks like I need to add more mulch!!!

Sunday afternoon, I thought I would get a head start on the week and went upstairs to get busy on these TWO String blocks:

Sunday evening, I was still feeling enthusiastic and made ONE Slab block:

Monday afternoon, I had a hair appointment right after work.  After that??  Nope!  No sewing.  I met with my friend Threebagsfulled to return her computer (and have a cup of coffee.)  DS1 is home for Spring Break and takes computer work whenever he can find it.

Monday night (after a dinner "date" with my boys) found me beginning this post... before I forgot what I did yesterday!  LOL

Angela was busy, too.  She posted the Monkey Wrench March Sampler block today.  If you haven't made one, follow the link and give her directions a try!

Tuesday, since I couldn't bring my sewing machine to DS2's Band Booster meeting, I got NO scrap sewing done.  (They REALLY need to change their policy!)

Wednesday, after work, I carved out a bit of sewing time and then it was off to the doctor with DS2.  DS1 went along for the ride so that he could get a hair cut before going back to school.  (Spring Break means lazy days for my little engineer... he actually dragged his butt out of bed for the late afternoon excursion!)

Not sure how I feel about so much BLUE in my YELLOW String block!!

Wednesday, before dinner, I got back to work on the String blocks that I started earlier.  Guess what?!  I finished TWO more String blocks:

Wednesday, after dinner, I pulled ONE Maverick Star block off my sewing machine ready for pressing and a snapshot:

Thursday afternoon, even though I worked late (on my day off), I went straight up to my sewing room to spend some time with my YELLOW scraps.  Here's what I made:

ONE String block and...

ONE Slab block.  :o))

On Friday, I actually took a Sick Day off from work.  This is an EXTREMELY rare occurrence!!! After how poorly I felt on Thursday evening, it was well warranted.  I stayed in bed most of the day, but managed to drag myself upstairs for a few minutes of sewing before dinner.  The result is THIS:

ONE yellow Tiny Nine!!!

Saturday, I finished up this post before heading off to another DOQ Donation Quilt Workshop (LATE, if at all!!).  I'm thinking that NO scrap sewing will get done today.  I'll let you know if that changes.  While you're waiting to hear back from me, go over to Angela's So Scrappy blog to see what all the other Rainbow Scrap Quilters have been up to this week.  I'll be hanging out at link number 17 this week. :o))

** Remember that LIGHTER schedule that I mentioned for the week... Didn't happen!!!  I feel lucky to have accomplished as much as I did.  We'll see what next week has in store...

Until then...
Get Scrappy!!!

P.S.  Happy Pi Day!!  (3.14 15)


  1. Your string blocks are looking good.

  2. Strings and slabs...always a great use of scraps, fun, and make great quilts.

  3. My daffodils started blooming this week too. Fingers crossed that we are over the snow!

  4. Lots of sewing going on even with the busy schedule. My beds are still snow covered. Who knows when daffodils will bloom!

  5. Wow, you got a lot done, I really like the colours in your slab and string block.

  6. Doesn't sound like a light schedule to me, but congratulations on sneaking in so much sewing time. Lots of great yellows to show this week.

  7. You still did pretty well on using up some of your yellow scraps. Hope this week is a bit slower .

  8. Love all your yellow blocks. You have been busy!

  9. Yellow is my favorite color and I'm loving seeing so much of this month.
    So many types of blocks I want to get to making, but the disappearing 4 patch was added to my list today.
