It's Friday again, and time to get your whoop whoop on! Are you ready? I'm still feeling my way back into my normal routine, but I've got a little something to whoop about - and then a bigger something! So let's go!
When I returned home from vacation last week, all these lovely packages were waiting for me. One of them contained two lovely quilt tops from Laura in Richmond - and one of them was a Celtic Solstice!
Oh, I love this quilt pattern! And not having the patience or time to work through a Bonnie Hunter mystery quilt, I love that we sometimes get them in our donations. This particular mystery makes me smile every time I see it!
I took the center part that Laura sent and added the bright yellow stop border and a blue print outer border to bring this quilt up to 60" square. For right now, it's in the stack we are holding for the senior high mission team to take to New York for Hurricane Sandy victims in October, although it may find a home sooner than that if a need arises. It was a beautiful top to work with and a joy to quilt! Thanks, Laura, for sending it!
And my second whoop involves my daughter and her family! Their home study is complete and winging its way to the U.S. State Department, and they can now turn in applications for grants that will allow people to make tax deductible donations to help them finance the adoption of little Nathanael! Whoop Whoop!! You can see their adoption fundraising site by clicking here…
I've also started receiving some "squish and a wish" envelopes for Nathanael's 100 Good Wishes quilt - it's so exciting to see them arriving, knowing what a wonderful quilt will come of them someday soon! If you'd also like to join in the fun, let me know in a comment and I'll send you more info. PS Please be sure you're not a no-reply blogger - I had one person who wanted to send one, but she was a no-reply blogger and I have no way to contact her. So if you have left a comment but I haven't responded, please email me directly at salliesue57 (at) gmail (dot) com!
And now it's your turn!
What's making you dance the happy dance this week?
Share with us - we want to dance along with you!
Remember - it doesn't have to be a finish -
Just whatever's making you happy!
The party will stay open until Sunday midnight -
Hope to see you there!
