It's Friday again!!! And hard to believe, but there are only five more Fridays until Christmas! If that totally freaks you out, and thoughts of all those gifts you need to make start running through your head, you might want to check out last Wednesday's post - it's full of ideas for scrappy gifts! But now it's time to get our whoop whoop on - are you ready?? Let's get started!
Well, my Thursday started off great - I got up early and quilted a quilt that will be a Christmas gift...
...finishing up before 6:30 am! Then, in an effort to multitask, I decided to plug my portable charger into my computer to charge it up while I was trimming the quilt, and disaster struck! As near as we can tell, static electricity from inserting the plug into the USB port fried the logic board - - - and everything went black. It's pitiful to admit this, but I honestly was in mourning most of the morning! At lunchtime, my husband decided he was tired of me moping around, so he took me to the store, and this evening I am whoop whooping about having....
...a brand new MacBook Pro!! My old one will make a very nice paperweight, according to my husband - that's so depressing... but the new one has that "new-computer" smell! Now here's hoping I can get all my pictures and files transferred over - that's always a hair-raising experience!
I'm also whooping it up because, thanks to many helping hands and generous donations, we had quilts on hand to give to a family of eight who were burned out of their home this week....
...and these six quilts went to the six children in the family. They lost everything in the fire, but now at least they each have a quilt of their own! It's such a blessing to be able to fill needs like this quickly - the day after the fire, we were able to put these in their hands!! Thank you to the many great folks who have helped us with this ministry!!
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!
