Can I Get A Whoop Whoop? Orange You Glad!!

Hi, all!!


Friday is here - are you ready to get your whoop whoop on?? I know I am!!


I've got several things I want to whoop about this week - first of all, I put the borders on my vacation quilt, and it's ready to show off!






I love this quilt so much - lots of oranges from Kate Spain (Fandango, Central Park, Terrain, and Serenade) and some Chrysalis - all blended together using Jamie's wonderful design, Blue Me Away!  I'm calling this one Orange You Glad.  One picture just didn't do it justice - so you'll have to put up with three!!


And here's my second whoop....



This huge stack of men's workshirts (28 of them)...


...needed this patch sewn on.  Fortunately Emmy spent a large part of the day Wednesday looking like this...

Don't you love the soul patch?
...so I was able to get them all finished!!  Whoop whoop!!

And as promised, here's the best thing that happened this week - and you can see it too!  This video shows Emmalyn hearing her mom and dad's voices for the very first time, as she gets her hearing aids!  She was born totally deaf in her right ear, and mostly deaf in her left ear - but look at the expression on her face as she hears for the first time!!

And now it's your turn!

What's made you give a big whoop this week?

A start, a finish, a clean sewing studio?

A baby's smile or a child's first day at school?

Share with us!!  We want to whoop too!!

The linky will stay open until Sunday night - 
Come join in the fun!!

Hugs!

Sarah

Your quilt is gorgeous but Miss Emmalyn steals the show. I was crying happy tears when I watched that video. She's so precious to begin with but those smiles when she heard Mommy and Daddy... priceless!

Love your vacation quilt. About signing, I have a copy of Sesame Street Sign Language Fun from years ago. It is great for teaching sign language to children (and adults). My (new) stepsister was the main sign interpreter at our church when we were growing up. She recommend this book to me years ago, when my kids were little. A great way to teach big sis to sign at the same time.

Linda said...

Oh, Sarah! This brought tears to my eyes! How sweet she is and how wonderful that she was born in a time when technology can help her hear!

I'm so glad for Emmalyn. What a wonderful blessing to be able to hear.

Captain StitchyPants said...

Congratulations to your granddaughter! That's wonderful!

Jennie said...

It's not fair to your gorgeous orange awesomeness to follow up with that video of your sweet grandbaby. Both are whoop whoopable, but that baby girl takes the cake today. I get the biggest, goofiest grin watching her face, and your daughter's face as well. What a precious moment!

Whoop whoop on your holiday quilt and best wishes to your little grandchild Emmalyn. What a blessing modern medicine sometimes is! And thanks for sharing this personal moment with us! The lucky expression on your daughter's face even outdid her baby's astonishment ;o)))

Darla said...

Oh, wow! So glad to have gotten to view that view. So happy for sweet Emmalyn! That certainly has to top off the week!

Darla said...

I meant view that video! I guess I had a hard time seeing through my tears!

sandra said...

Thankyou for sharing the video with us it is so precious and so are her smiles. Modern medicine brings us marvelous things.
I loved your beautiful orange quilt.
My grandson told me today he could see something twirling in the floor and it was the reflection of the ceiling fan. It makes us realize that he is seeing some. Blessings Sandra

That video is just precious! It made me smile and choke up at the same time.

LOVE the vacation quilt! Such a gorgeous color.

Amy said...

What a new and fabulous world, she will be experiencing. The Lord is so wonderful. Not very many other posts could top your Whoop! Whoop! The quilt is beautiful, also.

Laura said...

I am so happy for your family that the adorable Emmalynn will now get to hear everything! She is so cute! Your quilt is great, too. Love the orange.

Pam said...
