ScrapHappy Saturday - RSC22 - Week 25

Welcome to Week 25 of the Rainbow Scrap Challenge!!  This week has been a mix of fabric flying and art journaling.  If you are here for the quilts, you will have to wade through the rest of my week.  It's been a(nother) busy one.

Take a look, but be warned...  This is a PHOTO HEAVY post!!!

SUNDAY - My week started well with a Zoom call to Knittingsuek:

The afternoon was spent in the studio and was followed by a family adventure complete with...


Kissing cars:

A mechanic at work:

Ultimately, after a team effort to push 4000 pounds, a temporary home for Daisy:

Fortunately, it was a beautiful evening and we accomplished the task before nightfall:

MONDAY - I posted Week 3 of the ICAD challenge and these are my three favorites...

A collage that began with the spring-themed cookie wrapper on the left and grew from there with the addition of bits of magazine pages, painted papers, and a few scraps of fabric:

Of course, I would think of a sewing machine when the TOY prompt came up!

I had fun adding the fold out tool "door" to my entry for the day:

This was one that I had to look up the meaning of the prompt and ended up only loosely following, but was thrilled to use a bit of fabric from a recent stash enhancement from my friend Diane of Stitch Studio:

Tonight was the (long awaited) Silent Auction at Quilt Guild.  Here's my haul:

When I got home from running errands, I did another page in my Somerset Studio Mixed Media Journal.  I finally got a set of Posca pens:

Tonight was the Silent Auction at Quilt Guild and here is my haul:

TUESDAY - This afternoon I added my new washi tapes to one of the interactive pages in my Somerset Studio journal.  This set seems more usable than the other set:

WEDNESDAY - It was a scrap sewing day.  I had a ton of fun figuring out how to use these gorgeous bits from my friend Diane's "autumn phase" and stopped with these three table toppers:

Thanks for sharing these beauties with me, Diane!!
They will make lovely pieces to add to the DOQ Quilt Show Boutique or Charity Auction.

This afternoon was my weekly Zoom call with LeeAnna @ Not Afraid of Color:

After dinner, I couldn't resist the last batch of autumn-themed scraps from Diane.  Trimming and arranging was the task for this evening:

THURSDAY - I had hoped to attend my Weekly Quilt Group, but opted to stay close to home.  DS2 helped me knock a BIG project off my list.  We located appropriately sized boxes and loaded up the Lutheran World Relief quilts.  They've been waiting such a long time to be shipped off.  The 2-box stack is actually hip height and weighs in at a combined 67.4 pounds:

FRIDAY - Table Scraps Challenge LINK PARTY

I'll start with an Index-Card-a-Day challenge entry made earlier in the week because it matches today's big event:

The highlight of the day was a trip to the Pineapple Fabrics Warehouse SALE where @britt_quilts caught up with our friend Tiffany who was volunteering at the Fabric-By-The- Pound tent:

We were pleased to run into our beemate Ella at the sale:

I was on the hunt for yellow to make a new baby quilt.  I feel good about my selections:

Not shown, a few pieces of wide back fabric for options on a variety of quilts.

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.

Until next time...


  1. Ooh, a fabric warehouse sale - fun! I love your scrappy fall themed patchwork, too. So glad my favorite toy is also really useful tool!

  2. The fabric sale looks like fun! A busy week but a fun one.

  3. all that and a bag of chips! You squeeze more into a week than anyone I know!

  4. Sounds like another busy week with a great trip to Pineapple Fabrics. I'd love to go to one of their warehouse sale - lucky you!!! Looks like you found some treasures. ~Jeanne

  5. Cute washi tape! And fun trip to Pineapple!!! Do you have a place you can drop the LWR quilts off at nearby?

  6. The visit to a fabric shop is always a good day!

  7. I have to save my reading of your posts till I have some real time because you pack so much into them. So many happy stitching friends! I can't even begin to imagine being in a fabric warehouse! I think I'd go nuts. Meanwhile, love seeing all your creative efforts, Joy.

  8. What a great week - well all except the kissing cars part ....but you handled it so well!

  9. I hope Daisy is all right. Another set of fabulous ICAD pages. Very clever of you to use sewing machine for the toy and the fold out door is great. I am loving your Somerset Studio journal. Other than the car "event", looks like a busy but great week!


  10. Wow, you've been sew busy! LOVE all the charity quilts boxed up and ready to ship. The blues and yellows look like a great haul for a new project. What a week. ~~Kathy S.
