It's finally Friday!! And not just Friday, but the first full Friday of fall!
Have you done anything you're whooping about this week? Think hard - there's always something! Remember, it doesn't have to be a finish - just something you're happy about. Let's get whooping!!
First, let's start with an inconsequential but still happy-making thing....
This showed up in my driveway this morning, and when it left, I had a whole new view...
It seems like a silly thing, but living out in the country, that driveway gets muddy after a while, and a new layer of gravel is SO nice!!
And then I got busy today and set up my photo shoot for the Free Spirit Fabric project!
It's always fun to find props for a photo shoot. In this case, I was aiming for a vintage/antique look, so I pulled out the small sofa my great-grandfather used in his law office, and the small boot chair that we think dates from revolutionary times. Lots of old metal hanging on the smokehouse and sitting on the ground, too! I'll have to do some careful editing of pictures to take out some "non-vintage" things, but I think it's do-able!
The post will go up this coming Tuesday, introducing Free Spirit Fabric's new line, Boston Commons. I hope you'll stop by!
And before I show you my final whoop for this week, I want to share something I saw on Instagram this week...
This week I am just bowled over by how much good you all have done! Wednesday night we packed up all the pillowcases and quilts we have received for A Heart For Texas so that the mission team can take them when they head out on Sunday.
Those are two enormous tubs (I think you could put a person in each one!) and they are jammed absolutely to the brim with pillowcases. I lost count, but I'm pretty sure there are more than 600 pillowcases in those two tubs. (Thankfully they are on wheels or they'd be too heavy to move!) And the two spacesaver bags on the shelf contain 23 quilts! You are all so awesome!! Keep up the good work - let's change the world one quilt at a time!
So I'm going to give you all a great big
And now it's your turn!
What's got you whooping it up this week?
What's making you do 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!
