Can I Get A Whoop Whoop? Time For A Giveaway!!

Hi, all!

I'm definitely ready to get my whoop whoop on today - for several reasons!!!  Vacation starts today, and in order to get ready for vacation, I finished three quilts...




...and quilted eight more that some other good folks have taken to bind and finish....









I'll tell more about these quilts in the next quilt ministry update, but these quilts will bring our total this year to 100 so far!  Whoop whoop!!


AND - - - I've hit 700 followers!!!!

Because this event can't go by unnoticed, or uncelebrated, we've got a great giveaway!!!  The wonderful Julie of The Intrepid Thread is offering up a fat quarter bundle of Amy Butler's new line, Cameo, in the Tall Stories color way!


Isn't it gorgeous?  Here's all you've got to do to have a chance at petting all that glorious color...  

1.  Leave a comment.  Tell me your favorite vacation spot...

2.  Jump over to Julie's shop and then come back and leave a comment telling me your favorite new line of fabric.

3.  If you're a follower, leave a comment telling me so! (Thanks so much, too!  You all brighten up my life!!)

4.  Link up to the linky party and show off what you're whooping about this week - then leave me a comment saying you've done so!!

Four ways to enter - be sure to leave a separate comment for each!!  I'll draw a winner next Thursday and post the winner's name on next Friday's Whoop Whoop post!!  (Be sure that I have a way to contact you - if I don't email you back from your comment(s), you are probably a no-reply blogger!)

*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*

And now it's linky party time!

What have you been doing the happy dance about this week?

Share!! We want to cheer you on!

The linky party will remain open until 
next WEDNESDAY night - - -

In honor of the giveaway!!

Join in the fun!!

Be sure to give all your fellow linkers a little whoop whoop!!

Hugs!

Sarah

I love to go to Italy! Venice and the coast nearby is great. But since I had been in Tuscany - maybe my favorite spot in Italy is there:-) Erika/ehellmich@yahoo.com

Anonymous said...

Hard to decide which fabric is No 1 - but feeling the pistol on my breast: La Dee Da in aqua or coral ...:-)Erika/ehellmich@yahoo.com

Rowen said...

My favourite holiday spot is the Vendee in France, because it has gorgeous sandy beaches that are also full of waves that are brilliantly jumpable which was a favourite holiday hobby of mine growing up, we'd go back there every 3 or 4 years.

Congrats on all your followers!

Loving It's a Shore Thing--those sunglasses just crack me up!

Michele said...

Vacationing anywhere there is the ocean is perfect for me. Mostly at Ocean City NJ....the boardwalk, the bubble tea and my BFF who lives nearby. Pure heaven.

Michele said...

I'm loving Bukhara the most at IT.

Michele said...

My favorite vacation spot is Myrtle Beach in December. My Sweetie and I can still be on the beach with our sweatshirts and not have to worry about the crowd. Oceanside rooms are cheap cheap cheap.

Kathy said...

I'm Linky #8. I finished the first week of the Tetris QA. All my blocks are cut for the whole quilt. It's not alot, or a huge finish, but with summer vacation and school not in session sewing time is very very limited. There's still time to join the Tetris QA with Melissa at Happy quilting.

Leah said...

Gratz on 700 followers! Since I live close to the beach, I have to pick the mountains as my favorite Vacation spot. Love finding water falls while hiking.

Leah said...
