Can I Get A Whoop Whoop? What's Your Big Whoop This Week?

Hi, all!

It's Friday again - are you ready to get your whoop whoop on?  I hope so - I need to see what you've all been working on because I haven't had any opportunity to do much at all this week.  We had a death in the family and had to hit the road on Tuesday and are still dealing with visitation, the funeral and all the family things that go along with that.  So keeping up with the Hands2Help administrative stuff is about the limit of my activity this week.

But that's definitely worth a whoop whoop - because we already have 48 people signed up to participate!!!  That's so awesome!! And people have volunteered to do guest blogposts so we'll have lots of interesting things to learn over the next few weeks, too.  And we've got lots of great sponsors - I can't wait to show you all the wonderful things that we've got for giveaways!  (PS There's still plenty of time to sign up to participate - read more here!)

On the sewing front, I did get a couple of dresses started (and almost finished) for my beautiful little girls this week...

Lilli's dress...

...and Emmy's!
And just because it's been really fun to see the family all together in one place, I thought I'd share this picture with you of two generations of girl cousins...


So that's my whoop whoop for the week!

Now - what are you whooping about?

What's made you dance the happy dance?

Share with us - we want to join in the party!

The linky party will stay open until Sunday night - 

Be there or be square!



PS - Sally in St. Paul, please email me directly at - you are a no-reply blogger and I haven't been able to answer you back about the H2H challenge!

    Your girls are beautiful.

  10. I haven't done much in the studio this week, but as of yesterday, we have a new granddaughter, Hadley Elizabeth. Bella didn't want to touch her yesterday when we went to visit, but today, she was thrilled when Hadley grabbed her finger. It is all very exciting and I am ready to get back into my studio for a while.

  11. So sorry for your loss, Sarah! Hopefully your lovely (grand)daughters can cheer you up a bit! Those dresses are gorgeous! Whoop whoop!

  12. Your girls' dresses are really cute! I'm sending you a link to the polka dotted dresses my mom made all 5 of her girls.
