Can I Get A Whoop Whoop?

Hi, all!

It's been a quiet week in Lake Wobegon, my home town…  oh wait, that's not right!  But it's been cold - that polar air mass has dropped us into the 40's for daytime highs, about twenty degrees below our usual temps for this time of year.  So it feels like I'm living in a small town in Minnesota! 

It seems like it's been quiet week here - not too much to show for it, but lots in progress.  So I guess it's time for….

First of all, I'd like to thank you all, once again, for bearing with me as we try to raise the funds to bring Nathanael home!  

The auction last week was a great success, bringing in another $975 for the adoption fund!!  Whoop whoop!!!  We're that much closer to getting Nathanael into his forever home!

And Thursday I spent many hours doing a whole lot of ditch stitching on this pretty quilt.

…which I will hopefully finish tomorrow morning!  I'm really excited about how this quilt is turning out.

I also managed to get in a bit of progress on my granddaughters' quilts for Christmas - Lilli is very concerned about them, asking me every time I see her if I've been working on them!  So at least now, I can tell her yes!

And here's a couple of quilt ministry whoop whoops…  
Leah's first quilt, Wonky Charms…

and look at Sara rocking it on the quilt frame!!

Her first time, and she says she loves it!

Can I get a whoop whoop?


And now it's your turn!

What are you whooping about this week?

What's got you dancing the happy dance?

Share - we want to dance right along with you!

The party will stay open until Sunday midnight - 

Hope to see you there!
