ScrapHappy Saturday - RSC19 - Week 8

Welcome to Week 8 of the Rainbow Scrap Challenge!!  I did a bit of sewing, a bit of knitting, and a bit of other stuff this week. Scroll through it all, if you only want the highlights.

SUNDAY - Mt. Washmore was calling my name.  Once that was all taken care of, I concentrated on laying out my newest quilt, MSQC's Pecking Order.  First, with a single-colored block:

YELLOW, of course, for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge!!

MONDAY - Tonight was Quilt Guild.  When I arrived, I was met by a "little bag of joy" from my friend Diane.  Snippets of the projects that she's been working on during the past couple of months.  LOVE!!

Those in attendance enjoyed the phenomenal art quilts of Nanette Zeller  from Southern Pines, North Carolina whose work has been featured on the cover of TWO issues of Quilting Arts magazine.  One of the issues included a bit of YELLOW and was sitting in front of my favorite piece of hers:

Nanette's BLOG is a wealth of creative information.  Her weekly articles include Find joy in the creating, and "Don't Give UP!".  They are sure to nurture the art quilter in YOU.

TUESDAY - The day escaped me.  I even forgot to add what DIDN'T happen (until Sunday.)  Oops!!  I know that I got some Squishy Mail, but you'll have to wait until Monday to see that.  Sorry!  Just following The Joyful Quilter's standard protocol.

WEDNESDAY - Yay!!  It's my STOP on the Show Your Wings Blog Hop over at Just Let Me Quilt blog.  Carol gathered quite an array of quilt bloggers and EVERY post was engaging and on theme.  I released my post early this morning.  Here's a preview of my project and be sure to note Mr. Finch:

It's Girl's Night Out.  Only four of us showed up, but we had a very enjoyable evening.  There was even some YELLOW stitching:


FRIDAY - I left the house early this morning on my way to Knit Group.  When I arrived home, I realized that I had NOTHING pre-written for tomorrow's post.  :o((

Quick!!  Search the camera to recreate the week!!  That was AFTER I reacquainted myself with my machine on a bit of YELLOW sewing for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge:

SATURDAY - Well, we made it through the soggy week and managed to arrive at LINK PARTY day over on Angela's So Scrappy blog.  I'm headed over to see what wonderful YELLOW projects the other RSC Quilters have been working on during the past seven days.

Until next time...
Get Scrappy!!!


  1. I love your yellow / black block. Looking forward to see more of this new project. ;^)

  2. I love your yellow and black block too. It looks great!

  3. Your quilty weeks are always so interesting. I’m really attracted to your Pecking Order block and am curious about how the rest of the block and quilt will look.

  4. Beautiful yellow and black block! :-)

  5. Your yellow and black block is very striking! The dog art quilt looks amazing.

  6. I've been enjoying the Show Your Wings blog hop. Thanks for participating!

  7. Can't wait to see what your yellow knitting becomes. Glad you showed your wings. What a cute Mr. Finch. I knew it would be a post of yellow nail polish--just knew it. Will your Pecking Order be a black scrappy background? Loving it already!

  8. Beautiful Yellow nails! Love, love, love the yellow knitting project. Hope you will share a picture of it when it's finished.

  9. You always have such busy weeks. Happy stitching, knitting and other stuff this weekend.

  10. I love that Pecking Order block!
