Can I Get A Whoop Whoop? A Whole Lotta Quilting Going On...

Hi, all!

Welcome to Friday!!  It's time for us to get our whoop whoop on again - I hope you're ready!  Remember, as always, it doesn't have to be a finish (good thing, because I haven't finished much this week!) but just something you are doing a little happy dance about!  Let's get started...

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

It's been a busy week for me - a lot of this has been going on...


...resulting in this stack of five quilts ready for binding.  They will be part of my big secret project (more on that to come soon!)

Tomorrow's task? A whole lotta binding...

I also finished this pretty orange peel top this week - I wish I'd had time to quilt it, but I guess that will have to wait a little longer!  


And when I was in Paducah last week, I went to a fabulous antique store and found this beauty...



 Isn't she gorgeous?  I was trying to talk myself out of buying her, and then my daughter texted me "But it's Mommom green!"  You see, my grandmother (Mommom) loved that particular shade of green - she painted almost everything in her house that color, including her refrigerator!  Well, that was the kick in the seat of the pants I needed - and so she came home with me.  I think I'll call her Jade!


She's a model 185J, made in St. John's, Quebec, Canada in 1954 - I wonder if that means I'll get the urge for a double double when I'm working on her?

And in honor of her pretty color, I decided to celebrate spring and sandal weather and paint my toenails jade green too!  



 So - - - can I get a whoop whoop??

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

And now it's your turn!

What's got you whooping it up this week?


What's making you do a little happy dance?

Share - because we want to dance right 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

  5. Ooh, a 185! Very nice. Essentially the same as a Singer 99, but with a more modern exterior. It should give you a beautiful stitch! You might be interested in this:-

  6. I love those pretty jade machines too. At one time I had 3 of them in my collection but had to sell most of the vintage machines when we moved cross country two years ago. Congratulations on a great find! And some great upcoming quilt finishes. Can't wait to see the cat quilt unfolded.

  7. Sarah, that's so funny you grandmother painted everything the same green. My grandmother did the same thing, except her color was a turquoise blue. If anything needed new paint, it was that same color, the trike all of us grandkids road at her house, the hat boxes that kept her sewing supplies. You were very productive again this week. The orange peel stunning!

  8. Jade is beautiful, as are your toenails, :). I like that cat quilt, any idea what that fabric is? I'm always looking for great animal fabric for rescue fund raisers.

  11. Cool "new" Singer. It'll be fun to stitch on that. I've been holding off quilting an orange peel because I have no idea what to do. So, I'm looking forward to seeing what you do!

  12. Should I send you a Tim Horton's gift certificate from Canada? My friend Yvonne sews all her quilts on exactly the same Singer -- just oil, lubricate and clean out dust bunnies. Love those lockstitch machines.
