ScrapHappy Saturday - RSC23 - Week 4

Welcome to Week FOUR of the 2023 Rainbow Scrap Challege!!  How did THAT happen??  This week didn't do any sewing, but I released several posts about sewn items or sewing related tasks.  Links are provide, in cased you missed any of them.

SUNDAY - PQ 14.2

This morning began with my weekly Zoom call to Knittingsuek...

During which, I selected fabrics for my personal RSC23 Scrap Jar Star Sew Along with my friend Chantal of At the Corner of Scraps and Quilts blog, of course YOU are welcome to join in:

Back to yesterday...

I enjoyed an Art Day with Britt:

More on that in Wednesday's post!

Now, on with the week...

MondayBLUE Challenge (Blog Hop)  Don't miss this!! I made a TON of projects (and there just MIGHT be a surprise for you, too.)

I discovered that my PQ14.2 was featured in Kristen's #scrapfabriclovesewalong Week Three video on YouTube!!!

I love the joy you share as you delve into your scraps! Looks like you had as much fun making as I did reading! Jan

Sending out a BIG thank you to Jan (and any other No Reply Bloggers!)  I make an effort to contact each commenter directly via email, but if that's not possible, I simply have to move on to the next comment.  I do appreciate you and your feedback. ~ Joy

Speaking of moving on...  It was time to head to work and today there was time for a game of Wordle during my lunch...

And Quordle, too...

AND some BLUE scrap cutting, as well:

WEDNESDAY - Today was my day off - which was really lucky, as I wasn't feeling well.

I did manage to get through my weekly Zoom with LeeAnna @ Not Afraid of Color...

Before having to go take a nap.  I ended up having to "piggy back" Advil and Tylenol because of the aches, fever, and chills that I was experience as a result of yesterday's Tdap booster.  Ugh!!!

THURSDAY - Wonderful Wednesday (on a Thursday)

It was touch and go this morning, but I was able to down another Advil and drag myself to work.  Luckily, the phones weren't ringing off the hook, so I was able to take it easy.

Work and Wordle...

Along with a Quordle win...

Was followed by hemming and hawing, but by this evening, I was feeling pretty much back to normal and attended my Monthly Evening Quilt Bee:

I worked on an embellishment for the cover of my newly completed Board Book Journal:

Don't worry!  I'll be scaling down the me-made stamp that I created over the summer.

Spoiler Alert:  February's letters are M and/or V

Work and Wordle...

Along with a very challenging game of Quordle:

Here's my interpretation of the SCENERY prompt for Junk Journal January:

I was really pleased with my color matching for the sky, but I went a little light on the leaves from the number that graced the portion of the scene that I cut off and attempted to replicate:

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. Lot of fun and happy on your blog today! Sorry about the somewhat “icky “ day! Maybe your body saying, “ take it easy”! ? Take extra care this week, so you’ll be in the “PINK” for next month!

  2. Amazed that you got to "worry" from "proud" on Friday's Wordle! Glad you're feeling better, too. It's always fun to see your art projects!

  3. You are so busy on so many different arty fronts. Love it and especially that you still have time in between work to meet up with friends.

  4. Took me 9 tries to get cloth earlier this week. I'm impressed with your 3rd attempt on that one. Lots of creativity happening despite a few off days. The scrap jar sew along.

  5. I followed the link to the YouTube on swiss cross blocks. I have been seeing so many of those around lately! Another one for the someday list. Glad you are feeling better. No time to be sick with so much going on!
