ScrapHappy Saturday - RSC17 - Week 15

Welcome to Week 15 of the Rainbow Scrap Challenge!!  This week...

SUNDAY - Tackled Mt. Washmore and gathered my MULTICOLORED fabric, finding the basket well and truly overflowing with scraps:

I also took ANOTHER trip to Chapel Hill!!!  (Lucky thing for me, it's fairly close.)  DS2 has a doctor appointment in town tomorrow.

MONDAY - Missed most of Knit Group in favor of going to the doctor with DS2, hoping to find out what's going on.  A trip to the pharmacy AND a return trip to UNC, then off to catch the tail end of knitting.  I was able to knit a row or two before we all headed out to lunch.  (It's been AGES since we've done that and everyone enjoyed Catrina's.)

When I got home, I spent some time in the sewing room sorting through that mound of scraps from yesterday.  Picking out all of the DARK rainbow prints - to coincide with the despair I've been feeling over DS2's recent medical problems:

TUESDAY - It's a stay-at-home day.   No, really!!  I stayed home ALL DAY (except for when I went for my quarterly pedicure.) Fancy RAINBOW toes...

... With a color to coordinate with the fingers:

Please ignore the discoloration.
Apparently, the lighting was a bit off for this shot!! 

Before lunch, I sorted through the BRIGHT rainbow scraps - to represent the hope I feel now that DS2 has some meds to help him:

WEDNESDAY - Another stay-at-home day. Well... it was SUPPOSED to be.  Until Needleb decided that we needed another Sew Day!!

THIS is how far I got on my RSC blocks before heading over...


And DARK, all laid out and ready to be sewn:

Too busy sewing to take pictures while I was there.  Let me assure you, progress was made on not one project, but TWO!!  :o))

THURSDAY - Same old, same old.  Spent the day helping a friend. At the end of the day I went to the grocery store AND took a trip to Raleigh to pick up DS1.  He finished his project early, so decided to grace us with his presence for the weekend.  :P

FRIDAY - It's the Good Friday holiday.  ANOTHER stay-at-home day for THREE in one week!!  This time I made my way back to Needleb's house for MORE sewing.)

Know what that meant?!  I actually ESCAPED another trip to Chapel Hill!!!  Thanks, DS1 for doing the honors.

Progress on the DARK Scrap Jar Star, components assembled:

The BRIGHT Scrap Jar Star is ready for assembly, too.  It's just not laid out for stitching:

I jumped between working on the 4-Patch blocks for my En Provence and making handles for a set of Trail Totes.  You can see Needleb working on her own 4-Patch blocks, but hers are for the outer border:

SATURDAY - LINK PARTY day.  Can't WAIT to see what MULTICOLORED madness the RSC Quilters have gotten up to during the week!

Here's what I accomplished during the week:

Assembled DARK Scrap Jar Star...

And... BRIGHT Scrap Jar Star:

Both in the MULTICOLOR Rainbow Scrap Challenge Color of the Month for April.  I'm calling that a success!!

Until next time...
Get Scrappy!!!


  1. Great job! Those multicolored stars are beautiful. Hope DS2 is feeling better.

  2. That's it! I've never had a pedicure (I have ugly toes.) If I ever do, I'm getting RAINBOW toes!!! Love that we were both working on scrappy stars (together). Have a great weekend!

  3. Good job on the stars. Love that you made a dark multi-colored and a bright multi-colored. It makes more sense than to have both of them in one star. I love both of them ... and the pedicure! ;^)

  4. I love your scrap jar stars. Perfect fabrics for multi color. I hope DS2 gets well soon.

  5. Love your pedicure/manicure - so cool!

  6. Both stars are so great. The difference is very vivid. I hope they represent your change in mood as well. Btw, how big are your squares for the scrap part? I'm so tempted to start them. Have a wonderful weekend with your family. Beth is cooking a large roasting chicken and I've made traditional Polish stuffed cabbage rolls.

  7. Two beautiful star blocks, sounds like another busy week for you, so good you got sewing days in though.

  8. Love your stars! They might be just what I needed to see to get gong on mine. I think I even have a similar stripe I could use for star points... Happy Easter!

  9. Your stars look great! I love their scrappiness!

  10. Wow! Thanks for all the pics and info. What a full productive week you had. Your blocks and scraps are wonderful.

  11. I like the bright rainbow star the best! And I'm so glad it represents HOPE for your son :)

  12. Gorgeous blocks!! What a great way to use up brightly colored scraps!! Your nails are pretty awesome too!!

  13. Your Rainbow scrap jar blocks are right on target for this month's RSC.

  14. Thank you for visiting my blog, and for your sweet comment. I absolutely love your dark and bright scrap jar stars, and I enjoyed spending time looking over your blog.
