Here we go again - are you ready to whoop? I know lots of you are starting to work on Christmas, but I hope you've got something you can share, even if it's just a peek or a progress shot!
My big whoop this week isn't sewing - I did some cleaning!! (OK, pick yourself up off the floor - I really do clean occasionally!) I started with this....
This horrible mess was my 8' x 14' junk room (formerly my tiny sewing area). It's been like this for about two years now - and just kept getting worse. But I needed some extra space to set up a baby bed in a quiet spot and this looked like the only available space - so I got to work! Here's what it looks like now...

I'm also whooping about the progress I've made on Emmy's Christmas stocking! Here's where it was the last time I showed it on my blog...
....and here's what it looks like today!
It's finally starting to look like a stocking!! There's still lots to do on it, but I can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel...
And for those of you who saw the prayer request on my post Monday, I want to give you an update. The quilt ministry member I requested prayer for had an aneurysm, and is in the hospital in critical condition. She is currently sedated, so they don't yet know the extent of damage; she's also got another unruptured aneurysm. She is a very new member of the quilt ministry, and a new sewer and quilter, but she's already made five baby quilt tops for the ministry. I finished one of them this week for a little boy born several weeks premature - here's a picture of her pretty top...
Please keep Christy in your prayers - she's got a long way to go and will need lots of prayer in the days to come. And yes, we're working on a quilt for her!
So now it's your turn!
What have you been working on this week?
What has made you happy happy happy?
Share with us - we want to cheer you on!!
The linky will stay open until Sunday night!
See you there!
