This week has just flown by (kind of like the leaves I am starting to see fluttering by my windows) and that means, because it's Friday, it's time for us to get our whoop whoop on!! Are you ready? Let's get started!
Let's start with the quilt-y finish first, shall we? I have to say, it's really nice to have an honest-to-gosh finish again!
This week I quilted the first of the memory tops! This one is made from golf shirts. As you can see in the picture below, the logos from the shirts are fussy cut and arranged in the center of the quilt.
The pieces are backed with woven interfacing, just like a t-shirt quilt, and pieced together. Cross-hatch quilting on my tabletop machine and a machine sewn binding finished it off! Woohoo!!
And then today I did a little crafty thing with the kiddos - we decorated pumpkins for fall!
Of course, Nathanael's had to be green (his favorite color) and after putting a funny face on it, he told me it was him! He even drew on little cochlear implants....
Emmy also did an "Emmy" pumpkin - hers had long yellow and orange hair that she put up in a ponytail, and glitter leaf earrings. I'm not sure what the strips of raffia tied around the pumpkin represent, but they were VERY important!
Lilliana went for artfully sophisticated - her pumpkin has "cobwebs" made of raffia loops, and a spider climbing up the side!
And FYI, I found the best price on the artificial pumpkins at Kroger, of all places! These were $5 apiece, compared to $15-$20 each everywhere else I could find them. Way to go, Kroger!
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! 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!
