Can I Get a Whoop Whoop? Cue The Hallelujah Chorus!!

Hi, all!

May I be the first to wish you Merry Christmas this morning?  It's hard to believe, but it's almost here - just a couple of sleeps left before the big day!  I hope you're ready to get your whoop whoop on - I know I am - because I HAVE FINISHED MY CHRISTMAS SEWING!!!  So let's get started!

In truth, these three quilts were not due until January 1st, but my Christmas present to myself was to finish them up before Christmas so that I had the week between Christmas and New Years to do whatever I wanted - clean up my studio or start a new project or just whatever!  So this week I did a lot of quilting (thankful again for my Hera marker!)...

...and made a mess of binding (this is only part of it!)...

...and finally finished them!

These two are very much alike - they are for twin boys who played on a lot of the same baseball teams when they were growing up.

And this one is for their younger brother, who is more into gaming and superheroes!

They were a lot of fun to make, and really expanded my t-shirt quilt design skills to create something that used the shirts provided and met the size the client requested.  I'm thankful to have learned how to use a spreadsheet program to diagram these quilts!

So - - - can I get a whoop whoop??


After posting the Quilter's Night Before Christmas poem on Wednesday, Material Girl sent me another version that was too good to keep to myself, so I'm sharing it here...

'Twas the night Christmas, I'm glued to the tree,
I'm wondering what Santa brought just for me.
Could it be fat quarters or a pattern or lace?
Or a quilt kit, I said with a smile on my face.

And that's when I heard him, "Hi, Santa," I said.
"You know...good little girls should be in their beds!"
"I know I should, Santa, and now I've got caught.
But I was just so excited to see what you brought."

"Well, let's take a look in this room where you work."
He shook his head quickly and left with a jerk.
I heard him exclaim, as he put it in gear,
"You've got enough crap, I'll see you next year!"

 Can I get an amen???  LOL!


And now it's your turn!

What's got you whooping it up this week?

What's making you dance 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!

Hugs and Merry Christmas!
