Can I Get A Whoop Whoop? Rockin' My Socks Off...

Hi, all!

It's finally Friday!  And you know what that means - it's time to get our whoop whoop on!!  I've been whooping a lot this week, and not just over quilt-y things - so let's get started!

*&*&*&*&*&*&*

First of all, you may have seen last Sunday's post, about Savannah's Sweet 16 Sock Drive...


I am so excited to say that the response has been UNBELIEVABLE!  Take a look at these pictures from just two days of shipments received....




...which resulted in a total of 1276 pairs of socks in TWO DAYS!!  She has another huge stack of packages she's sorting through right now, and I know there are still many people who haven't sent their donations yet (like me!)  Only five days into the drive, and it doesn't end until February 22nd!  If you'd like to become part of this fabulous story, please check out this blogpost for the full skinny.



Then, on the quilt-y front, I quilted and bound this sweet child's quilt for the quilt ministry...


...pieced a really nice men's top that will be part of the upcoming Nifty Nines Quilt-Along...


...pulled this beautiful batik top together in about two and a half hours the other day...


...and started piecing blocks for not one, not two, but three My Small World quilts!  In a moment of absolute lunacy, I decided it might be fun to make one for each grandchild.  Oh well, at least I've got until Christmas - nothing like starting early!

So that's what I'm whooping about this week!  

*&*&*&*&*&*&*

And now it's your turn!

What's got you whooping it up this week?


What's making you dance the happy dance?

Share - we want to dance along with you -

And it's always more fun to dance with friends!

The party will stay open until Sunday midnight - 

Hope to see you there!

Hugs!

Sarah

  4. Wow! Three Small World Quilts?!? I made one and it took about three weeks. I think it wouldn't be that difficult to make three of everything though. Looking forward to seeing your progress.

  17. Oh I love the batik top! The colors are so calming! Two hours...I would still be fretting over color placement. That's why I am so slow! Hoping to link up later.

  20. I've been busy sewing so I didn't see your sock post. It has really touched my heart and I have an extra pair of cute/funny Kermit the frog socks that I bought a couple years ago but haven't worn out my own. I'll go out and buy some more to fill out the package. Thank you for sharing that story! Please keep us updated on Whoop Whoop day.

    Your quilts are awesome as always! The batik one is my favorite! I have some leftover aqua batiks that might have to turn into something similar. I guess I'll have to out out and buy some pink to go with it ^_^ Happy sewing!
