ScrapHappy Saturday - RSC 18 - Week 18

Welcome to Week 18 of the Rainbow Scrap Challenge!!  We have arrived at another Transition week.

SUNDAY - In honor of YELLOW month, the garden decided to cooperate with the Rainbow Scrap Challenge:

MONDAY - Just in time for the last day of April, the other YELLOW variety bloomed out in my garden:


Hello ???  Pink???  Yep!!  I guessed it correctly.  May's Rainbow Scrap Challenge Color of the Month is:


Follow the big PINK link above for Angela's reveal from yesterday.  It's probably Exam Week and you know what THAT means?!  No time for anything except schoolwork.  We'll be lucky if she comes up for air on the weekend!!!  (Hang in there, Angela.  Summer vacation is in sight and will be here before you know it.)

WEDNESDAY - Knit Group was followed by quilting with Needleb.  I had hoped to get more done on Dad's Ties for Molly and I did just that:

Needleb helped me with my Cinco de Blooming 9-Patch quilt.  I gathered the options from my stash and ended up with a couple of selections that didn't really work.  She came to my rescue with substitutions from her fabric closet and I'm pleased with the result:

Here are hers, in a rainbow of color:

THURSDAY - I attempted (for the 3rd week in a row) to make it to my Weekly Quilt Group.  I haven't been able to attend lately and I really miss my friends!  Because of timing and my other obligations, there are only a few locations that are remotely possible.  This week was one of those weeks...

I made it!!!  Too bad I don't have picture proof.  :o((

In stolen moments, PINK nails:

FRIDAY - Hooray!!!  Welcome to the weekend!  I spent the morning to find a few minutes to knit:

 This afternoon, I spent some time cutting out my new quilt:

SATURDAYI'm beginning to wonder where all the time goes...  Don't faint, but ANOTHER week has gone by!  That brings us to LINK PARTY day over on Angela's So Scrappy blog.

But first...

We have the late bloomer....  The last of the yellow Iris varieties in my garden is popping out as I put the finishing touches on this post:

I'm off to a Cinco de Mayo Blooming 9-Patch Party.  I will catch up with all of the RSC Quilters tonight or tomorrow.  Go on ahead and see what Transition Week has meant to the others.

Until next time...
Get Scrappy!!!

  3. Pretty yellow iris! So cheerful!

  4. Beautiful Irises! I'm hoping mine will be close to blooming at the lake house ... which, BTW, becomes the official residence today! Can't wait for you to come visit.

  5. did you have a margarita for me? love those pink nails!

  6. I love that you paint your nails the scrap color of the month!!!! So much fun! Your flowers are beautiful.

  7. Part of my brain is screaming 'What do you mean it's May already?!?' and the other part is going 'Oh, goody, May means spring and flowers, tra-la!' Time seems to just whoosh by...
    Glad you got some quilt group time, even if there aren't any pictures!

  8. I'll be interested in seeing your Cinco de Mayo Blooming 9-Patch take shape. My DD2 went to a Cinco de Pie-O party yesterday.

  9. love those iris! and your pink nails, and am very interested in where you are going with that fabric pull.

  10. Gorgeous blooms! It's been so nice to have the warmer weather bring out all the color. Another busy week at your house, hope you can fit in some stitching here and there.

  11. Love, love, LOVE those pretty pink nails!
