ScrapHappy Saturday - RSC22 - Week 34

Welcome to Week 34 of the Rainbow Scrap Challenge!!  This week was a mixed bag.  Was ORANGE sewing involved?  Stayed tuned, as the days unfold.

SUNDAY - The day began with my weekly Zoom call with Knittingsuek...

And continued with a bonus Zoom with LeeAnna:

Later, I colorized one of the book pages in my Flowers Magic journal and added a bit of collage:

MONDAY - Work...  For real, this time.  I managed to squeeze in a bit of game time:

Quordle, too!  Unfortunately, I deleted the photo that wasn't blurry:

TUESDAY - I spent the bulk of the day doing chores around the house.  On the art front, I watched a couple of videos from Cat Rains sharing her experiment with crayon rubbings.  I was inspired to go straight up to the studio to give it a try by substituting oil pastels for the Crayola crayons that were given away prior to our move:

WEDNESDAY - It was an art filled day.  After viewing a tutorial by Roben-Marie, the Tech Savvy Artist, I uploaded my very first Instagram reel sharing my completed abstract painting series.  Here's the ORANGE one from my class with Judy Woods Art:

Before my regular weekly Zoom with LeeAnna @ Not Afraid of Color...

I worked on my 5-Minute Art Challenge.  This splattered gelli print was the result of yesterday's prompt:

THURSDAY - Work.  Again.


Quordle was a near win, but I messed up on my final puzzle:

Another art project was begun using this deconstructed mailer to create a small art journal:

My monthly Evening Quilt Group changed nights and moved indoors this month.  I forgot to take a group photo so here I am with my Show and Tell for this time:

FRIDAY - August 2022 TABLE SCRAPS Challenge...
This was the BONUS project:

Knit Group this morning was down about half the members:

It turned into Coffee and Collage...

The music paper didn't stick in the middle so it turned into a surprise tuck spot:

Work soon followed.  You KNOW what that means, don't you???

Wordle and...


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.  I'm pleased to have something quilty to share.

Until next time...


  1. A busy week full of creativity!

  2. Work. Again. UGH!!!
    I am aware of the feeling.
    Somehow you found time for friends and fun. And that is terrific.

  3. You did GREAT on your word puzzles this week! I liked your Coffee & Collage project. That stroke of green with the music paper sticking out truly caught my eye. Have a good week!

  4. How did you enjoy the oil pastels instead of crayon for rubbings?
    I find it fascinating to see which first words wordle players choose and then how they progress to get to the final word. They are so many ways to get from first word to last!

  5. Hi Joy, loved what you made for your own Table Scrap Challenge. Congrats on making your first Instagram reel. I love those. Glad to see you keeping your mind engaged and challenged in so many creative and wordy ways!

  6. Busy week! Believe it or not, I had all those same words on Wordle. (I'm scratching my head about those I've seen - not this week - that are different.) Love that orange was the color this week. I saw it in your clothes, and in a few of your projects.
