Can I Get A Whoop Whoop? A Whole Lot of Starts!

Hi, all!

Wow!  It's already Friday again!!  Can you believe it?  Is it just me, or does it seem like the weeks go by faster the closer it gets to fall? Well, whatever, it's time to get our whoop whoop on - are you ready?  I am!  Let's get started...


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

It seems like it's been a period of starts and no finishes for me lately.  First there was this, a test of a pattern I needed to try before cutting into the good stuff...


The pattern is for a table cover, but I'll be turning this one into a tree skirt.  Any interest in a pattern for this?


Next, when I opened my Stash Builder Box for this month, there was a great pattern by @quiltingjetgirl and I couldn't wait to try it out - so I grabbed an old fat quarter bundle and put this together over the weekend.  Great pattern and so fast! I've already got plans for some others to use up some of the random fat quarters I've got hanging around!


And then I finally got this top pieced!  This quilt was started by a member of our quilt ministry who died recently, and her husband asked if someone in the ministry could finish it.  It was fun to make, and I should be able to finish it up soon - I just need to figure out how to quilt it!

I've also been working on some more secret sewing this week, but obviously can't show that off - which is why I've been working on other things too!  Gotta have something to share on whoop whoop Friday!

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 dance a little happy dance?

Share - 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
