Can I Get A Whoop Whoop? Some Fun Things, and A PSA!

Hi, all!

Can you believe it's Friday already??? Time sure does fly when you're having fun - and we've been having lots of fun around here!  Friday means it's time for us to get our whoop whoop on, so let's get started! (Stay tuned at the end for a PSA...)


As I said, there's been lots and lots going on around here!  First off, I finished the last of the six memory quilts that I was commissioned to make....

Here you can see five of them - the last bunch to be delivered.  Sadly, I couldn't get a good photo of the finished t-shirt quilt - it has been raining here for the last four days, and when it isn't raining, it's way too wet outside to hang the quilt on the clothesline (it's pretty long) to get a good pic!  So it went to its new home without a good finished picture...

And then I did some not-quilting...

...and spent one day re-organizing closets, then the next one putting together the bunk bed and the platform bed that now reside in my guest room. (And the third day limping around with a sore back!)  With this addition, we have more than enough room for all three grandkids to have a sleepover!  My daughter has a twin mattress that will go on the top bunk, and of course I'll need to make a twin size quilt for it too!  The grands are excited...

Then we went back to our regular scheduled programming...

...and I made a mess of cute little pincushions for a special event!  These are so much fun to make, and I'll be sharing a tutorial for them on Wednesday.  Be sure to stop by if you want to make some of your own!

And then today I started on a new "memory" project...

...this will become a memory table runner, made from men's ties.  The colors are so much prettier than show up here - I'm hoping I can get a daylight shot once it's finished.  The quilting will add lots of texture, too - but that's a job for tomorrow!

So - - - can I get a whoop whoop??


And now it's your turn! 

What's got you whooping it up this week?

A little singing in the rain, in honor of TN fall weather!

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!



Public Service Announcement:  Bloggers, have you noticed your inbox being a little empty lately?  I actually thought my post on Wednesday hadn't posted on time when I realized I hadn't received any comments in my inbox. When I went to check, I found six comments sitting right there at the bottom of the post - but none in my inbox!  When I checked my settings, my authorization to notify me of comments had mysteriously disappeared.  So you might need to reset yours also if you have comments on your posts that you didn't hear about...  Just sayin'...


  1. I love the pattern for the ties...something I haven't seen before!

  2. And I think I have been busy-you put rings around me girl!!

  3. Maybe that new bunk bed would be a spot to hang quilts when you can't get outside for a photo.

  4. Great week-the tie tablerunner is looking good!

  5. The bunk bed looks like a quilt prop to me. Thank you for the linky party.

  6. You have been very busy! And now you have real beds, not just for sleepovers, but for more quilts!

  7. You've been busy!!! I just returned from a month long European vacation. I need to get back into my sewing room. Those little pincushions you made are so cute!!! I'm looking forward to the tutorial for them.

  8. Great job you get so much done all the time. Love the tie runner it looks great! Your grand kids will have so much fun!

  9. Your mens-tie Dresdens are looking great! I can't wait to learn how you quilt them. : )

    And yes, I'm having the same problem with Blogger not alerting me to each and every comment. I'm considering turning on the moderation feature. Grrr!

  10. Busy, busy!! I LOVE the table runner with the ties! What a neat idea! Thanks for sharing!

  11. Yup, my comments stopped arriving in my in-box, too. Very mysterious! I thought it was really strange to get no comments, since I admitted to falling out of my chair and onto my backside in my last post! Surely people would have something to say about that?? And indeed they did, once I got that pesky blogger fixed :)

  12. Don't know if you could change my url but I put in the wrong one... Sorry.


Comments make me smile!! If you want a PDF of a pattern, PLEASE leave your email address in your comment, or email me directly at salliesue57 (at) gmail (dot) com!
