It's Friday again! Are you ready to get your whoop whoop on? I know I am - lots and lots to whoop about this week! And I'm going to indulge myself a little bit and share my biggest whoop first, before announcing the giveaway winners…
Remember this little face?
Her last day of being a baby...
Now a big girl - two years old!
She and her big sister love each other so much! It's been a day with lots of giggles, donuts for breakfast, birthday cake for supper (an enormous meal in between at Lamberts, the home of "throwed rolls", so no one was hungry enough for dinner - but there's always room for birthday cake!) Who knew that balloons on the floor could be so much fun?
Happy Birthday, Emmy!!
And now that I've indulged myself, let's see who the winners of the LED sewing machine lights are!!
Little Miss Random has spoken, and she chose…..
I am a follower!
Congratulations, folks! I'll be contacting you by email sometime today - but if you don't hear from me by Friday noon, you may have been a no-reply blogger. (There were a bunch of no-reply bloggers that entered this giveaway!) If so, contact me directly at salliesue (at) clearwire (dot) net.
If I can't reach any of the winners, and don't hear back from them, I'll put Little Miss Random to work again to choose some new ones. So chime in if you won!!
And here's my other whoop whoop!
This is what I've been working on all week! And I finally finished the top this afternoon, just in time to take a picture before the sun went down.
This quilt will be named "Nathanael's Ladder" and will be used as a fund raiser for our future grandson's adoption. For those of you who are just hearing about this, my daughter and SIL are trying to adopt a Chinese toddler who is profoundly deaf (as is our youngest granddaughter). We are thinking of raffling off several quilts to help raise the nearly $30,000 needed to bring Nathanael home. Stay tuned for further details!
And now, something really really special….
The other day I was at my daughter's house, and she said,
"Hey, take a look at this cute fabric I've had forever…"
and she brought out
two full, uncut yards of….
wait for it….
Goldfish in Bags, from Heather Ross's
Lightning Bugs and Other Mysteries
(Long out of print!)
Oh. My. Gosh.
After I picked myself up off the floor..
And petted it for a while…
I asked her if she had any idea what it was worth.
Not. A. Clue.
So I told her.
She now thinks she might be able to live without it.
Anyone interested? She's trying to figure out the best way to sell it - fat quarters, half yards, full yards or
one gorgeous, glorious, two yard abundance
of Goldfish in Bags.
Or maybe a raffle - $5 for a chance to have it for yourself?
What do you think? Interested?
I bet this could help bring Nathanael home!!
And now it's your turn!
What are you whooping about this week?
What's got you dancing the happy dance?
Share - we want to dance along with you!
Remember - it doesn't have to be a finish -
just something that makes you happy!
The linky party will stay open until Sunday midnight -
Hope to see you there!
