ScrapHappy Saturday - RSC23 - Week 8

Welcome to Week 8 of the 2023 Rainbow Scrap Challenge!!  PINK month is still in full swing.  My scrap basket is still overflowing.  What will pop out of it this week???

Read on to find out...


After releasing today's post, I visited on Zoom with Knittingsuek:

This afternoon, I made a PINK scrappy House block (inspired by Preeti @ Sew Preeti Quilts).  A project on the back burner for WAY TOO LONG:

MONDAY - (Not so...) Mini Monday (On a Sunday)

Work and a Quilt Guild Meeting where I shared my Condo Complex modern quilt from 2020 and the Schoolhouse Quilt made by my Candy and finished by me a number of years ago, along with a House block (pale PINK block in the foreground of the photo) modeled after Preeti's Homeful quilt, a Dog House block inspired by Center Street Quilts on Etsy, and a machine appliqued Wonky House (inspired by Amber K Creative's Let's Build Houses video on YouTube) that I made in just a few minutes this afternoon:

TUESDAY - TidyUp Tuesday and Delivering Quilty Hugs

Work was followed by a few errands.  One of those was to Michael's for Knittingsuek.  Alas, her item was nowhere to be found.  I ventured to the paint section to console myself.  These items follow me home:

WEDNESDAY - Wonderful Wednesday and the Art Day

Today is my day off.  What will I do with the time??  I started by attempting to catch up on emails and link parties.  Once I was done with the former, I gave up on the latter and went upstairs to load the next UFO on the longarm:

This runner was in a scrap bag from Maggie a number of months ago.  I thought I had decided on how I want to quilt it, but then I also thought it might be my ABC (Table) SCRAPS challenge entry for this month.  It may sit there for a while, as I opted for another entry for the TSC.  (You can find the link for that in Friday's entry.)

After lunch, I enjoyed my weekly Zoom call with LeeAnna @ Not Afraid of Color:

THURSDAY - Work was followed by...

Some PINK sewing for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge:

By way of the ABC (Table) SCRAPS Challenge from this little 1" x 1.5" drawing...

Which I glued into my journal once the little quilt was done.

Work, errands and another attempt at catching up on all the things.

Spoiler Alert:  I got the grocery shopping done and NO SEWING!!!  :o((

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.  After releasing this post, I went on to sew together the 16-Patch portion of my Scrap Jar Star in PINK:

Hoping to finish it up by the end of the month.  We'll have to wait and see if that actually happens.

Until next time...
