After a VERY long and busy week, it's finally Friday, and you know what that means - it's time to get our whoop whoop on! Have you been doing any happy dancing this week? It's time to share what you've been excited about! Let's get started...
My week has been full full full - but not much sewing, at least not at home. It's vacation Bible school week, which means...
The youngest grandkids are participating in Vacation Bible School for the first time, which means I need to be on hand in case of meltdowns, etc. (they are more common in kids with sensory issues). So I've been at church with them every morning, working in the quilt room while they do their thing. That means I've been able to do some interesting things, like explore a new way to do frankenbatting...
For this, I took some sheer weight fusible interfacing and cut it into 1" wide strips. Butted up two clean edges of batting scrap and laid the interfacing on top, fusible side down. A good hot iron and presto, one piece of batting instead of two! So much easier and faster than dragging out my zig zag machine!
I also put together these great scrappy blocks - I've got almost enough for a quilt, only five left to make and then the setting triangles and corners! Hopefully I'll finish this top tomorrow morning while the kids are at VBS.
I also finally managed to get the last of the Hands2Help thank you packages off in the mail! After six trips to the post office (because it was way too much to take at one time) I got the last one in the mail on Wednesday. Woohoo!!!
And then on Thursday night, I made a lovely, luscious peach pie using some fresh peaches that were going to go bad before we got back from vacation, so now we'll just have to eat the pie before we leave - and I don't think that will be a problem!
So that's what I did this week -
Can I get a whoop whoop?
And now it's your turn!
What's making you whoop it up this week?
What's making you do 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!
