It's been a fast week, but guess what?  It's Friday!  And that means it's time for us to get our whoop whoop on!  Are you ready?  Let's go!

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

It's been a good and productive week around here!  When the world goes crazy, sometimes sewing is the only way to deal with it - and that's good for productivity.

Tuesday I quilted this beauty, and put the binding on too!


Wednesday morning it joined this beauty in a great big box and went to UPS!  It's winging its way to Florida and 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!!  Let's go!

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

For the past few weeks, I've been working on adjusting my main sewing area so that it's more functional.   After a bit over a year in the space, I have a better idea of what works and what doesn't, so I decided to make some changes.

I started by moving my old sewing table back against the sloped wall...

...with the shorter kids' crafting table next to it ...

Hi, all!

It's Friday!  And a long-anticipated Friday for me, because today is the beginning of vacation!  Whoop whoop whoop!!!  But before I get totally distracted by sunshine, sand and the Gulf of Mexico, let's do a little whooping together.  Ready?  Let's go!

Meet Adeline!  Adeline was recently diagnosed with a rare form of cancer, and her mom wanted a quilt made with t-shirts with notes of encouragement donated by her friends and family.

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

A couple of weeks ago, I finished a quilt!  But because other things were going on (H2H, maybe?) I didn't have a chance to really share it with you.  But tonight as I sit under this lovely summer weight quilt I decided it was time to show it off!


I made this as part of an Instagram quilt-along held by These Clever Hands (@thesecleverhands) using her pattern Me Sew ...

Hi, all!

Another beautiful spring week has gone by, and it's Friday again!!  That means it's time for us to get our whoop whoop on - are you ready?  Let's go!

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

This week I finished up the last binding on the last graduation quilt, which meant that I got to do some "me" sewing!  

My "Me Sew Happy" quilt, which I started as part of a quilt-along, had been languishing away on the design wall, because I had not had any time to work on the large and small hourglass blocks.  So it was the first thing I ...

Can I Get A Whoop Whoop? Beach Quilt! from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

 

Hi, all!

Friday is here again, and hopefully we all survived April Fool's Day!  I did see a few Instagram posts of people who were surprised by snow - quite a wicked April Fool's joke from God, I must say.  We woke up to a beautiful day, but twenty degrees colder than we had been the rest of the week - and so windy you could hear the wind whistle through the bathroom vents.  So we didn't have a beach day today, but we did play putt putt and watched four - count 'em, four! - Godzilla movies!  A good day ...

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

We arrived at the beach yesterday (well in advance of the horrible weather currently plaguing the south) to this lovely view!  I'm looking forward to the next few days when it isn't quite so gray and chilly, though.


And while the beach is definitely whoop-worthy, THIS is what I'm really whooping about - the condo had a workstation set up that has been the perfect place to ...

This week I ignored the beautiful spring weather we had and holed up in my studio to work one of the t-shirt commission quilts... and it paid off!


The top is finished!  And once again, with Lilli's help laying it out and charting it out on graph paper, it went together like a dream.  It's square, straight, and came together with a minimum of fuss ...

Can I Get A Whoop Whoop? The Perfect Valentine's Gift... from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

 

Hi, all!

Friday has rolled around once more - and for many of us, it's been a week of cold weather, ice and snow.  I hope all of you have fared well, and have had power and heat.  We were fortunate, getting a lot of snow and ice but retaining our utilities, so it's been a week for sewing!  But today I'm not going to share any sewing, because my husband got me such a fabulous Valentine's Day present that I want you all to see.  So let's get our whoop whoop on and get started ...
