Can I Get A Whoop Whoop? Fun In The Sun, and A Winner!!

Hi, all!

Friday again, and time to get your whoop whoop on!!  Are you ready?

I've had a pretty productive week, considering I've got a pretty big distraction...'s hard to concentrate on sewing when that gorgeous beach is staring you in the face!

But in the hot afternoons and in the evenings while we were watching TV, I've managed to get all the components sewn up for my version of Jamie's pattern, Blue Me Away.  I think I'll call my version Orange You Glad!  With a little bit of luck, I hope to get the top sewn together tomorrow, except for the borders, which I left at home.  So I'll maybe have a completed flimsy to show on Monday! 

And I've been blown away by the response to the giveaway - you guys are the best!  I'm so glad I started blogging and joined into this fabulous community of crafters!!

So that's my whoop whoop for the week!  And now I know you are all wondering who won the 700 follower giveaway - that lovely bundle of Cameo!  Little Miss Random rolled the numbers, and chose #267, which is...... (a little confusing because Blogger starts numbering all over again after 200...)

Cindy said...
Best new line...pretty little things.
Cindy blogs over at Tops to Treasures - just checking out her blog I see she has an amazing sewing area!  You ought to go see it!!

Congratulations, Cindy! I'll be e-mailing you soon!


And now it's your turn!

What have you been working on this week...

...that's made you dance a happy dance?

You've earned your whoop whoops -

Link up and get them!!

The linky party will stay open until Sunday at midnight.

Plenty of time if you're not quite ready yet!

We can't wait to see what you're up to!!




  1. Oh I love your pin wheel blocks :) fresh colours!

  2. Those pin wheels are lovely and cheerful! Your beachy distraction looks lovely :)

  3. The Blue pattern is lovely , but I really am in love with your bright orange/yellow version. Nicely done.

  4. Congrats on the success of your blog. I love it and love seeing the quilts you quilt.

  5. I love your color is awesome!

  6. Whoop Whoop, Sarah! That's going to be really pretty, and I love the name :-) With that view, I'd be just staring out of the window instead of sewing.

  7. Love the name you chose for your project. :D Gorgeous fabrics there. And I wouldn't be getting much sewing done, either!

  8. Love the colors of your pinwheels!! Can't wait to see the quilt. I love the sights, sounds, and smells of the beach...from inside ;-) I can't think of a better place to be quilting...lucky you!!!

  9. so, you are on vacation & sewing!? WOW, you've got the fever BAD! tee hee! I think it might be "Orange you crazy"!

    Love your blocks!

  10. I don't think I could even stay inside with that beach right in front of me. The blocks are looking good!

  11. I love the Orange You Glad blocks. Very pretty. And by the way, there should be no sewing while you are at the beach...LOL. Enjoy!

  12. Congrats to the winner! Love your orange blocks. Can't wait to see the quilt.

  13. I have Goose Bumps! I can't wait to see this quilt in the oranges - so far it is leaving my mouth watering for a tall glass of Orange Juice.

  14. So impressed that you took your sewing machine to the beach! We had to fly to the beach last week, and I'm lucky we got all 4 of us there (including a 3 year old and a 1 year old) in one piece, much less bring something cool (and heavy!) like a sewing machine. Love the orange, too!

  15. That would be difficult to concentrate! But I love the blocks.

  16. Love all the bright colors in the happy pinwheel pattern - great choice! Hope y'all had a fun and relaxing time!
