ScrapHappy Saturday - RSC23 - Week 48

Welcome to Week 48 of the Rainbow Scrap Challenge!!  This week was a big blur. I'll see what I can do to recreate the good parts.

Keep reading to see what transpired...

SUNDAY - Zoom, Zoom, Zoom

Easy Like Sunday Morning art Zoom started my day, but I didn't get a photo of what I worked on.  After arting, I enjoyed my weekly Zoom call with Knittingsuek:

In the late afternoon, I took a (virtual) Secret Tag Journal class with @Willa.Wanders

I made a prototype instead of a full journal.  Front cover shown above and the interior shown below:

MONDAY - Work was followed by a beautiful sunset:


After dinner, I searched for poems and quotes relating to Autumn...

And decided to rip out and redo the stitching on my Care December journal, as the white thread I used during Sundays art Zoom was really bothering me.  The brown thread looks SEW much better:


Another lovely sunset at going home time today:

I raced home for an abbreviated Zoom call with LeeAnna @ Not Afraid of Color.  We were both suffering from lack of sleep, so all you get is a "talk to the hand" photo:

I was excited to share the Tape Box journal that I stitched up with the thread ripped out of my Care December journal - the photo won't move to the center no matter which buttons I press...

Look at the SIX small signatures in that 1-inch spine:


I brought my Dark Neutral mini to use as a mug rug today:

Today's sunset photo:

Afterwards, I was off to my Monthly Evening Quilt Bee.  We were greeted by quilts.  This one was made by my friend Knittingsuek and quilted by me many years ago:

There were only six of us this evening and I nearly forgot to get a photo:


It was a soupy, drizzly, rainy day so there was no sunset photo to round out the week.  :o((

Enjoy this gallery wire photo, taken just for reader Dorothy, before the display is changed to RAINBOW-themed quilts for December.  Sorry, Dot!  My other Dark Neutral mini quilts are still missing from our move 2+ years ago:

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.  It's another day filled with arting.

This morning is a Mini Retreat with my friends @ Get Messy and this afternoon I'll be heading to Britt's house for an ART-venture.  You know what that means, don't you?  I will probably have some catching up to do tomorrow.  I'll be looking forward to visiting my RSC Quilter friends then.

Until next time...


  1. It's always enjoyable to notice the pretty sunsets this time of year. Too bad they're so early!!! Your dark neutral mug rug looks perfect for that spot at work. Have a fun day, Joy!

  2. A busy week. Hope you get a little fun time to play this weekend.

  3. Love it! Thank you! You know it always makes me smile!

  4. I just love to read these weekly roundups of yours, Joy. You have a lot stuffed into your days and are so productive! Did I miss why the stitchers are all in masks?

  5. Happy Week to you !! the talk to the hand photo is so funny - love it!
