Hi, all!

Well, it's Friday again - and we all know what that means!  It's time for us to get our whoop whoop on!  Are you ready?  Let's go!

*&*&*&*&*&*&*


We've been at the beach all week, and having a fabulous time with it!  The weather has been gorgeous (except for one day, but I put that to good use) and we've been working hard at resting up!  It's a tough life, but someone's got to do it....


The food's been pretty amazing, too!  We love to eat breakfast out, and this was my ...

Hi, all!

Friday has rolled around once again, and we all know what that means - it's time for us to get our whoop whoop on!! Are you ready?  Let's go!

*&*&*&*&*&*&*

I had a really short week this week, because we are leaving today for the beach (and that's REALLY whoop worthy!!) but I did get some quilting done....


I did a binding for a friend - isn't this a pretty quilt?


I also did a little chain quilting - all three of these quilts were able to be backed with a single selvage-to-selvage width of fabric, so I ...

Can I Get A Whoop Whoop? Lots of Quilting Going On! from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

 

Hi, all!

Another week has come and gone, and it's Friday once again - and you know what that means!  It's time for us to get our whoop whoop on!  Are you ready?  Let's get started!

*&*&*&*&*&*&*

I did a good bit of sewing and quilting this week!  It felt really good to get back into the swing of things a bit, although I will admit to a bit of "paralysis of analysis" as I tried to figure out how to quilt a customer quilt.  When I mentioned this to my husband, he said, "Use thread."  How helpful!  But ...

Can I Get A Whoop Whoop? Organization, and Some Other Stuff! from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

Hi, all!

Here we are, Friday again, and not only Friday, but the first one of May!  It's hard to believe how fast this year is flying by, isn't it?  But Friday means that it's time for us to get our whoop whoop on, so let's get going!

(*)*(*)*(*)*(*)*(*)*(*)

It's been an interesting and diverse week in my neck of the woods this week - it started out with working on all of these machines at church to be sure they were running well.  Most of them just had tension or threading issues that were easily remedied ...

*&*&*&*&*&*&*

I've had a good time this week, with several projects coming to fruition...

My first peony bloom of the season...




...and the planter and pots are all done!


I delivered this finished customer quilt - I don't want to show the front because it will be a gift, but the texture on the back ...

Hi, all!

Wow!  Another week has passed by, and Friday is once more upon us! I hope you all are ready to get your whoop whoop on - let's get started!

*&*&*&*&*&*&*

I don't have a whole lot (in pictures) to show for this week, although I'm whooping over several things - we have finished all the quilts needed for our two big quilt projects, and I have finished cleaning out and planting in my little back garden!  I've also got a quilt loaded on the frame and ready to quilt tomorrow, which took me giving procrastination a kick ...

Hi, all!

Friday is upon us once again, and we all know what that means - it's time for us to get our whoop whoop on!!  Are you ready?  Let's go!

*&*&*&*&*&*&*

With the sun finally making an appearance this week, and warmer temperatures with it, I had to split my time between quilting and yard work.  Let's start with the quilting!


These two quilts bring us within just a few quilts of our big project goal - just a few more to do in the next week or so!  Both of these have been bound, washed and dried and ...

Can I Get A Whoop Whoop? A Purpose for Some Long-Loved Fabric.... from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

 

Hi, all!

Well, Friday has rolled around once again, and we all know what that means - - - it's time for us to get our whoop whoop on!  Let's get started....

*&*&*&*&*&*&*

I have to admit, as I write this, that I'm not feeling much to whoop about right now.  I live in Tennessee, and if you've been following the news, you know that our state legislature has done some pretty reprehensible things today in the wake of the mass shooting two weeks ago in a Nashville private school.  So that's been affecting my mood today pretty badly ...

*&*&*&*&*&*&*

It's been a busy week around here, finishing up some things for the quilt ministry and getting ready for vacation!  But I've got a few big things I'm whooping about this week....


This year's Hands2Help Comfort Quilt Challenge has opened up, with sign-ups starting last Sunday, and we already have 63 people signed up!!  I'm still getting my act together and slowly getting organized, but it's so ...

Time sure flies when you're having fun, and another week has come and gone! It's Friday again, and you know what that means - it's time for us to get our whoop whoop on!  Let's go!

*&*&*&*&*&*&*

After all the quilting and binding I've done over the past two weeks, something got into me - a major urge to clean up!  I've been doing some deep thinking about my stash while doing all that quilting and binding, and finally just jumped right in with guns blazing!

Wait!  I know that sounds terrible - but I'm ...

Hi, all!

Wow!  The week just flew by, and it's Friday again - and that means it's time for us to get our whoop whoop on!!  Let's go...

*&*&*&*&*&*&*

Last week I shared that I finished a baby quilt for my great niece - well, that quilt was delivered and my niece sent me the sweetest picture...


And that's definitely worth a whoop or two!  But you may also remember that I shared that I had quilted four ministry quilts and had a fifth on the frame.  Well, that total changed significantly, and I quilted all eleven quilts that ...

Well, it's Friday again, and hopefully you're not snowed in somewhere! .Although you know what they say - snow day, sew day!  But it being Friday, it's time for us to get our whoop whoop on, so let's get started!

*&*&*&*&*&*&*

I started out this week with the hope of getting a quilt for my great-niece finished, and I'm so happy to say that I met that goal!


It's a sweet little quilt, and I backed it with leftover bits and bobs of the fabric I used for the hearts on the front.  Some ...

*&*&*&*&*&*&*

As of the beginning of this post, I don't feel like I have accomplished much this week - but let's see if I can change my own mind by the end!


I started out the week by doing a little trimming and creating this pretty pile of scrap!  They always look so inviting, don't they?  I'm hoping our local ...

It's been a great week, and it's drawing to a close - and it's Friday!  We all know what that means, too - it's time for us to get our whoop whoop on!  Are you ready? Let's go!

*&*&*&*&*&*&*

Since I've been gone all week, I haven't done any sewing to speak of.  Mostly I spent my spare time by the hotel pool while my husband was working....


Not such a bad way to spend a day, is it?  And I managed to get all six of the tutorial blogposts started.  One has posted ...

*&*&*&*&*&*&*

This week has been full of a lot of secret sewing, as I went from this...

...to a quilt top I can't show you for a few more days!  It was a marathon of piecing, but so much fun - you guys are going to love this one!  

I'm also really whooping about this one - I got a ...

*&*&*&*&*&*&*


It's been a productive week!  My "to be quilted" bar is starting to fill up....



While quilting Thursday I played thread chicken, and WON! (Whew!)


And this quilt is now finished and ready for gifting as a comfort quilt to someone in need.  I sure was glad to make it to the end of the quilting before I ran out of thread!


And Bree, God bless her ...

Hi, all!

Wow!  It's Friday again - can you believe it? - and we all know what that means!  It's time for us to get our whoop whoop on!  Let's go...

*&*&*&*&*&*&*

I only have a picture of one true finish this week....


...because puzzles are addictive, don't you know?  If I have a puzzle started, it's so hard to not say 'just one more piece' and stand working on it for ages.  But I did actually quilt and bind two quilts for the ministry...


Here's one of them on the frame.  I failed to get pictures ...

It's Friday once again (the first one of 2023!) and that means it's time for us to get our whoop whoop on!!  Are you ready?  Let's go!

*&*&*&*&*&*&*

I don't have a finish this week, but I did make some good progress on a new project!  I started out making these...


...Then I moved on to these....


...and lastly, I made a whole bunch of these!


Yesterday I laid them all out on my design wall (all that would fit, anyway!) and started sewing them together....


Isn't that pretty?  And it uses a TON ...
