ScrapHappy Saturday - RSC22 - Week 18

Welcome to Week 18 of the Rainbow Scrap Challenge!!  This week the RSC Quilters were happy to discover the Color of the Month.  Here's a hint:

Kat @ Kat and Cat Quilts released the May/June Block Drive for Covered in Love.

After Zoom with Knittingsuek...

I did a little housework and a grocery pick-up (which took WAY longer than it should have!)

MONDAY - The Guest Blogger(s) Late Edition!!!

I started something new today.  This is where my adventure began.  An old rainbow dot planner is about to be transformed!  For the cover, I decided to use strips of a pretty duct tape layered with a colorful business card, a scrap of paper, and some washi tape:

Messy May promises to be a lot of fun.  Just putting paint to paper was a thrill for me:

TUESDAY - It was a work day today, but I dug out my Sage/Forest GREEN scraps for May's Color of the Month when I got home:

WEDNESDAY - It was my day off.  I made really good use of it!  I started out with today's journal page:

Followed by a trip to Scrap Central!!!  It was great to see Diane and we had a lovely visit on her front porch.  Just LOOK what was waiting for me:

Sage/Forest GREEN scraps for my RSC Quilter friends!  :o))

Triple the fun during my Zoom with LeeAnna @ Not Afraid of Color:

It took us that many times to get a decent photo and that's how many 40-minute Zoom sessions we went through before we had said all we had to say for the day!

THURSDAY - ZoomBEE - Not for me.  :o((  I spent the day at work and the evening in the studio.  I had some catching up to do.  Here's my block for Covered in Love's current Pixel Block Drive:

This must be some kind of record for me.  Only FIVE days into the first month?
My Block Drive block is done and ready to mail!!!

FRIDAY - ZoomKNIT went live, but... Even though WORK was canceled, I still had work to do!!!  While missing my friends, I made the most of the day by doing today's journal page, several loads of laundry, and prepping the last of the T-shirts for my commission quilt:

SATURDAY - It's LINK PARTY day for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge!  I hope you will join me in visiting Angela @ So Scrappy to see what the RSC Quilters have been up to this week.  My apologies, friends.  I am behind on visiting most of the links and today I'm quadruple booked!  It's an occasion day around here, too.  I'll be enjoying these bits of GREEN:

Until next time...


  1. What beautiful roses! And the pixel block looks great (and has green!) Have a great weekend!

  2. A fun week with plenty of friend time, even if you had to do it via Zoom! I love the idea of the Pixel blocks, and plan to make a couple of them this week if I can get caught up enough.

  3. Enjoy your t-shirts. I have one or two of those to think about as well.

  4. Your Pixel block looks great! I need to get back to making CiL blocks this year. Pretty flowers, too! Have a great day, Joy!

  5. Way to go on crushing that record time on making your blocks. I love the photo of you with your hair down. Happy "occasion" day. I've been following your fun journal entry days on Instagram. What fun. Have fun playing with all those green scraps.

  6. Looks like you are off to a great start with your forest and sage green scraps.

  7. Hmmm. I can post as "Anonymous... but can't post via my Google account."

    1. (I forgot to add -- From Kathy S.). aka -- Anonymous... LOL

  8. Some weeks are like this--but I love the journal entry playing around with paper...

  9. Have a nice Mother’s Day! Those roses are lovely. And a great pixel block! I can’t wait to dive in and make a couple of those!

  10. an occasion day? do you add up a couple occasions to celebrate at one time? Do you celebrate national brush your teeth day? lol... at least I'm having fun imagining all that silliness so I wish you happy whatever your celebrating and happy painting!

  11. I'm guessing anniversary - hope you have a fun filled day. Busy week but look at the things you checked off the list! Great job. I have yet to see the sewing room this week.... maybe later tonight.

  12. Your journal challenge looks like fun! The pixel block for Covered in Love also looks great! I finished mine, too. Ready to be sent out once I get the time to go to the P.O.

  13. Looks like you picked pretty green fabrics and use them beautifully in The pixel block, Joy. Happy celebration. Beautiful flowers.

  14. I've had little time to sew and that probably won't improve for the rest of the month. Hope your "occasions" day was fun. I was home alone, but did get some phone calls from family. Covid has reared its ugly head again around here, so staying home is the only option.
