ScrapHappy Saturday - RSC21 - Week 9


Welcome to Week 9 of the Rainbow Scrap Challenge!!  This week was SEW productive.  Take a moment to grab a snack and a drink because there will be LOTS of links to follow!

SUNDAY - I was busy after posting last week's ScrapHappy Saturday post.  I did a some piecing:

Candy stopped by to drop off a couple of donation quilts (Thank you, Ruth S.!!) for the Covid Nurse Quilt Project for Wake Med.  Of course, a bag of fabric scraps accompanied the quilts:

Thanks, Candy!!

I did some binding:

And visited with Britt, who stopped by bearing gifts:

This morning I released a new edition of Sew Some Love Sunday and in the midday, I posted my Project QUILTING entry for the 12.4 challenge.

Stitching stars of the wonky variety kept me busy most of the afternoon:

MONDAY - {Not so...} Mini Monday was released last night, so that I could join the SAHRR before Week 4's Link Party closed.

TUESDAY - Holy cow!!  I am reeling from all the posts and projects (and our power being out yesterday.)

This morning, I released another installment of The Guest Blogger(s) today, as Jane from Australia completed her February 2021 TABLE SCRAPS Challenge project.

This afternoon, Ruth B. dropped of a donation quilt for the Covid Nurse Quilt Project that I'm helping with.  Large lap quilts are being collected for a local(ish) hospital where a friend's son works - details available upon request:

This evening, I enjoyed a Zoom-y Nights (Virtual) Quilt Bee meeting with friends:

WEDNESDAY - Just after midnight I released the post for my STOP on Carla's latest event.  Check out my STOP on the Show Your Stripes Blog Hop.  Hint!  If you like the looks of my project, you REALLY need to go read the post.  Here's a preview:

12 hours later, Knittingsuek stopped by for a grocery swap:

Look!!  We saw one of the first signs of Spring:

Another 9 hours later, I released a new edition of
Wonderful Wednesday.  Yep!  I finished a UFO.  :o))

Edited to add one of my favorite parts of the day...

My apologies to LeeAnna!  In my efforts to make sure I captured everything from the day, I somehow managed to neglect posting our weekly Zoom meeting:

ur scheduler missed ZoomBEE this week.  (Hope you are having a glorious time at the beach, Deborah!)  Carol filled the void and hosted these 13 quilters this morning:

After a quick bite to eat, I was off on a scavenger hunt.  Hunting for donation quilts for the Covid Nurse Quilt Project for Wake Med!!

First stop, Jean's house:

Then on to Diane's:

Followed by a brief visit at Cheryl K's house:

The final donation was delivered to my door by Maggie:

Sorry, friends!  You will have to wait a little while to hear (and see) more about the quilts.  They will be included in a future edition of Sew Some Love Sunday.

This evening, I remembered that I still needed to finish up my TABLE SCRAPS Challenge entry for this month.  I did a little sewing and finished preparing my post:

FRIDAY - The February 2021 TABLE SCRAPS Challenge and Link Party went live early this morning/durina cog the middle of the night!!  

At a more reasonable hour, ZoomKNIT met - with a couple of long lost knitters in the mix.  It was wonderful to see members of our Knit Group who are rarely able to join us:

SATURDAY - It's LINK PARTY day for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge.  Please visit the RSC Quilters hosted by Angela @ So Scrappy.  The end of the month is here.  Let's see what YELLOW projects have been completed.  Have you wondered what our new color will be??  Until that is announced, enjoy this little taste of Spring from the woods behind our house.  These daffodils bloomed the day before yesterday - but the ones out front (in full sun) have yet to bloom:

Also, check out the latest edition of The Guest Blogger(s).  Connie's post will be released momentarily.  The word on the street is that March's Color of the Month is GREEN!!!  Time to get busy on my next entry for the TABLE SCRAPS Challenge.  With Angela's new color announcement, I already have an idea of what I will make.  :o))

Until next time...


  1. Joy, you have had another busy week! I can’t believe you have blooms already when I look out my window I still see a foot of snow! A lot of snow has melted this week but it will take awhile before it is all melted and we see flowers blooming!

  2. Lots going on around your house. Sorry about the power outage... it's always annoying. I haven't seen any sign of spring in our neighborhood -- and I actually walked outside a couple of days. It seems like you got a lot done on a big variety of projects. On to the new week!

  3. Already have an idea for your green table runner..... I wonder if it will have anything to do with St. Patty's Day?

  4. Love your daffodils - so fun to see them! Mine are peeking up above the dirt, but it will be a long time before I see any blooms. Time to think about green now!

  5. Oh, wow, I'm always breathless by the time I'm done reading your post. You sure do pack a lot into one week. I love the colors in that Show Your Stripes project. I'll have to check that out. Isn't it wonderful that the daffodils poked their heads out to honor the color of the month? We have a little more snow to lose to see if ours are making any progress.

  6. Gee are we allowed to link up green projects that we JUST finished??

  7. Daffodils!!!! I'm sooooo ready for the March sewing to begin!

  8. I am looking forward to green as well! Lots of great yellows too

  9. Wow, I somehow missed some of this week's posts, so I'll go back and catch up. You make me tired just reading about your week. I, for one, am glad to see green as this month's color, so I follow through on making a St Paddy's Day runner.
