So Thankful For Quilty Friends!


Hi, all!

I have some good news - when I announced that the Hands2Help Challenge would be postponed or cancelled this year, I received the nicest email from Mari of The Academic Quilter offering to take it over for this year!  She will be posting about the schedule (which will be a little bit different owing to the late start) soon, so hop over to her website and follow her so you don't miss out on anything!

Quilty friends really are freaking awesome!!

Taking a Little Hiatus....

 Hi, all!

Many of you have noticed and commented that I haven't been posting lately, and it's well past time to bring you, my readers, up to speed.  

I've been having some health issues this fall that have kind of used up all my band width, and will be having surgery that will hopefully bring things closer to normal the beginning of February.

That being said, it kind of puts a crimp in the usual spring activities around here, most especially Hands2Help.  Unfortunately, I'm going to need to at the very least postpone it until later in the year, depending on how my surgery and any post-surgery treatment goes.  I'll be making that decision at a later date.

However, I know that many of you have already been working on quilts for this year's challenge, and I hope you will find a good place to send them.  This year's charities would have included Emily Bailey's Quilty Hugs, Bernie Kringel's Mercyful Quilts, and Little Lambs Foundation of Utah.  All three have been featured in previous Challenges, so you may be familiar with them.  Or you may have a local charity that you want to send your quilts to. Please don't let the lack of a formal Challenge keep you from spreading quilt-y hugs!

Thanks for being there for me, and a special thanks to those who wrote to see if I was okay.  I'll be back as soon as possible!

Can I Get A Whoop Whoop? One Last Finish for 2021....


Hi, all!

The last Friday of the year has arrived, and we all know what that means - it's time for us to get our whoop whoop on!  Are you ready?  Let's go!


It's been a wild and crazy time here, but I couldn't let the year end without posting one last finish for the year!  I'm happy to say that I have finally finished my Endless Summer quilt, started many years ago as a vacation project.  It's languished in a project box since then but this fall, as part of the WIPS-B-Gone challenge, I dragged it out and started working on it again.  And here's the finished product!

We had some sunshine today, but it didn't last long enough for me to get any good pictures outside...

...but it's still beautiful, isn't it?  These bright summery colors should bring a lot of cheer to January and the new year!

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!
