ScrapHappy Saturday - RSC21 - Week 32

Welcome to Week 32 of the Rainbow Scrap Challenge!!  Our lovely hostess, Angela @ So Scrappy, chooses a new color for us to quilt with each month.  The goal is to use up some of our fabric scraps. It's fun to see how each RSC Quilter interprets the goal!  This week was all about packing and moving.


The Color of the Month for August will have to wait.  Sorry, Aqua/Turquoise/Teal/Not really blue or green!  Here's a preview of what might happen in a week or two... IF this quilter can find the box she put Preeti's lovely Quilt Seeds in:

My week is going to be somewhat bare (if you can imagine that.)

SUNDAY - Sew Some Love Sunday and you won't want to miss this post, if you haven't seen it yet.

MONDAY - The 1st quilty package arrived at the new house (before we did.)  No worries, Darlene!

DH was there to check on the painting that's been going on the past couple of days.  I'm pleased to present the freshly finished back stairs leading up to my new quilting studio from the garage:

TUESDAY - Today was completely eaten up by packing!

WEDNESDAY - Panic packing!!!  The movers will be here tomorrow and we are SEW!  NOT!! READY!!!

I took a quick mental health break to Zoom with LeeAnna @ Not Afraid of Color for the last time in the old house:

THURSDAY - ZoomBEE met without out me this morning.  :o((

The movers are here to do the heavy lifting.  Catch you on the flip side!  Once the truck is loaded, I'll be heading to the new house to supervise the unloading.  I have a feeling it's going to be a LONG day!

FRIDAY - It turned out that I didn't have to miss ZoomKNIT, but We still don't have internet at the new house.  I'm hoping to be online there in time for next week's meeting... IF my (exhausted) DH has contacted our new internet provider by then!

SATURDAY - It's LINK PARTY day for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge!  I hope you will join me in stopping by to see what the other RSC Quilters have been up to this week.

Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU for all the well wishes for the move!!!

Please forgive me if I don't visit the links this week.  I have a feeling it's going to take quite a while to dig out from all of the boxes we brought from the old house to the new house.  (I scheduled this post earlier in the week just because I knew we wouldn't have internet by Saturday, if we are staying over there.)

Until next time...


  1. I wondered how you were posting without internet. Getting settled is more important so take one thing at a time. We have all been there.

  2. The bogland will wait and all of us will be right here when you return moved, rested and somewhat settled in your new home. Best wishes, Joy!!!

  3. Joy, as Preeti said we will be right here.
    Good luck with the final packing and moving.

  4. Hope the move-in is going smoothly! Probably exciting and exhausting at the same time. Those stairs look neat!

  5. I’m so excited for you! Jealous and not at the same time! If that makes sense! Glad there are movers to help with the big stuff! I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again! The thought of moving gives me the “willies”! Best of luck! We will all still be here…don’t you worry!

  6. Hum, which made me more excited? A new quilt room or a move. I am all for a new quilt room. It will be so much fun to set it up. If I had paid any attention to you moving (I remember it vaguely...) I would have suggested you sign up immediately for your internet service. Having moved MANY times that is one of the things we set up in advance. I hope you can get back on line soon. But we will still be here. Perhaps tapping my foot ready to see the new studio! LOL!

  7. You've been busy. I hope your move went well and that you're settling in. Did you move far from your old home to your new one? The steps look great.

  8. Take your time. Make your new nest comfy. Whenever you're ready to come back to Blogland we will still be here to cheer you on. Great job on the steps. ;^)

  9. Congratulations on the new house! Once the move is finished you will be happy to be in your new place. Can't wait to see the area at the top of those stairs! :)

  10. Good luck with the move! Make sure to take breaks and stay hydrated! After the chaos settles down, come back and tell us all about it, inquiring minds want to know.

  11. Oh, I can not wait to see the new room revealed! Remember to take a break from unpacking and play a little.

  12. Snazzy paint job!!! I'm excited to see and hear more!

  13. Moving is such a big disruption to all things. Hope the move went smoothly and you are mostly unpacked or at least unpacked enough to be able to have some sanity sewing time. We moved the SIT last weekend. As a college student she doesn't have much, but boy was it exhausting.

  14. What a joy to be moving into a new, freshly painted house but oh! What a headache. Good luck! Looking forward to pictures of your new quilt studio!

  15. Hope the move went smoothly. Take your time getting settled. It doesn't all have to be unpacked in a week. Hope the internet gods are good to you and don't take forever scheduling the installation. But then, maybe an internet break would be a good thing. I know, though, that you will be anxious to bring us all up to date.

  16. You've got this! Welcome to your new address!
