Can I Get A Whoop Whoop? I'm Counting on You!

Hi, all!  

Well, Friday has rolled around, and it's time for us to get our whoop whoop on!  I don't know what you are whooping about today, but let me just put in a big whoop for the beautiful fall weather that seems to have descended on us today!  I can't wait to see what you're happy about, so let's get started!

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

This week, I've had the joy of visiting blog friends in real life - so much fun!  And it's been amazing at how easy everything feels - we talk like we've known each other forever!  We've done some sewing in Julie's beautiful studio...


...and maybe more than a little bit of monkeying around!


That's me in the center back, then clockwise is Beth, Tish, Irene and Meta. Our next task is to figure out how to get Julie in the picture with us!  

We've gone to some wonderful fabric stores...


This lovely shop had beautiful fabrics, the yummiest yarns, and so many cute things it was hard to see it all!


And there's Julie!  She got a little overexcited about the green fabrics, and they all ended up on the floor - but it was easier to see them then!  


Oh look!  It's my birthday present from my husband!  How did that get in my bag????


And here's one I got for myself - beautiful wool socks that are currently on my feet and so comfy and cozy!  Doesn't everyone need a new pair of socks for the first round of fall weather?

So it's a different kind of whoop-whoop, but this week has still been whoop-whoop worthy!

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!

Hugs!

Sarah

  16. Isn't it fun to meet up with people you "know" online. I love to knit wool socks but our winter weather the last few years hasn't been cold enough to wear them very much. Sigh. Yea for some fall temps here too!

  17. My husband and I celebrated our 55th wedding anniversary on Saturday. As we were headed to the restaurant for breakfast that morning I spotted a yard sale sign that merely said FABRIC. On the way back home I got my husband to turn down the street where we'd seen the sign. There was fabric galore--a woman had been sewing for 10 years and was giving it up. I bought 29 yards of fabric and am still ironing it and folding and putting it in my stash! The other Whoop whoop is that the train quilt I made for the Tehachapi Depot Railroad Museum's gift shop sold in one day and they made $65 from the sale, which was $10 more than I had suggested as a price. The shop manager said she thought to herself as she rang up the sale, "I should have asked for more, I should have asked for more!" LOL

  18. Looks like you all had a wonderful time. The lady who chose the green fabrics, that's what I'd do too. The wool socks are really pretty and look comfortable. Happy belated birthday to you.
