Finally Friday - and I am unbelievably pleased to be able to say that I am in San Diego, where it is cool - and not in Nashville, where it is predicted to be 108 degrees today! Our weather has been unbelievably hot for this time of year, but fortunately it has been very dry - which keeps it from being too horribly oppressive. But everything is very dry - the grass is crispy! and fires are a constant worry, especially with the 4th of July holiday coming up.
This week I managed to get a lot of quilts ready to be quilted - some needed borders, all needed backs.....
...well, except for the top one that Pam made a back for! Of these seven quilts, two are for the church quilt ministry, and the other five will be going to Operation Wood Hollow. I also have one other quilt that will make it into this stack, as soon as I pick up a wide backing! It will also be going to Operation Wood Hollow. If you haven't heard about this worthy project, you can read more about it here. So this is my "work cut out for me" stack for next week - hopefully I will be able to get these all quilted and bound, and then sent on to their intended recipients! But I'm very glad to have them at this stage right now.
Next, did you see where Amy of Amy's Creative Side posted pics of her sewing area and dared her readers to post pics of their own to see if they were as messy? Well, these aren't pics of my sewing area, they are pics of my "junk room" which houses a lot of the overflow from my sewing room - and I'd say it's as messy as Amy's, at least!
In and among all the patterns, boxes of fabric, craft supplies, and books, there is a potter's wheel that I'd love to uncover! Hopefully soon.....
Did you hear about Beth's new blog, Quilts Are For Giving? It's a place where quilt bloggers who make quilts to give away can post about their efforts! What an awesome idea!! And starting next week, there will be a linky party on Tuesday for folks who want to link up rather than write a whole post on the blog. So stop by next Tuesday and join in the fun!!
And one last thing - - - here's a picture of my three girls!!
Aren't they gorgeous?? Although I may be a little bit prejudiced...
All right - now it's your turn!
What are you whoop whooping about?
What has made you do a happy dance this week?
Share - we want to join in the celebration!!
The linky party will remain open until Sunday night -
plenty of time to post and link up!!
Hope to see you there!
