ScrapHappy Saturday - RSC22 - Week 44

Welcome to Week 44 of the Rainbow Scrap Challenge!!  This week might have been a joyful shade of normal, but I was scheduled to work more hours than I generally do.  Not a problem.  More $$ for crafty purchases!  :o))

Here's how the week ambled along...

SUNDAY - The week began with a Zoom call to Knittingsuek:

After telling her all about Quilt Retreat, I caught up on some household chores and did a little bit of arting:

Happy Halloween:

TUESDAY - Another work day.  You know that means Wordle...

Along with Quordle:

Autumn on the way to the studio once I got home...

And Dark NEUTRALS for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge (even though there's no "official" color this month.

WEDNESDAY - Work.  And Wordle:

Quordle was tricky, but not too tricky for me:

I was glad to get home in time to Zoom with LeeAnna @ Not Afraid of Color:

After dinner, I trimmed up the latest page in my Board Book Journal.  Continuing the beach scene from the opposite page was a fun challenge:

- It took me until lunchtime to get today's Wordle:

We were busy enough that it took me ALL DAY to finish the day's Quordle!  The first two words made me think there was NO WAY that I was going to win, but once the phone stopped its incessant ringing, I found success:

After my evening walk, I ruminated over the binding options for this little scrap quilt:

FRIDAY - Before work I cut some little brown squares for an idea I saw on the internet:

Wordle took a while...

But I really thought Quordle would defeat me today.  Not so:

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 plan to do some more digging in my BROWN scrap basket this afternoon...

But first, another Zoom session with Knittingsuek:

I have plans for tomorrow so our regular schedule had to be adjusted.  Right now I'm headed off to work, but here's what happened afterwards:

Date "night" with my DH!!  We went to see Top Gun Maverick at the old theater downtown.  Thank you for corporate events!  It was a pleasant way to spend an afternoon.

Until next time...
