Friday is here once again (how does that keep happening?) and it's time for us to get our whoop whoop on! Are you ready? I am - can't wait to share what I've been teasing about for the past week or so... Let's go!
You may remember the things I've been making lately...
...a giant pincushion, pins and needle...
...and a giant tape measure!
Well, here's what those things were for...
My husband wanted to use his truck instead of my car, and since he came up with the theme, it only seemed fair!
In case you haven't figured it out yet, our theme was "Alice in Quilterland"...
My mom's Featherweight made an appearance, too...
And of course, I had to print out one of these to go on our candy basket!
I am so grateful that there is a wealth of graphics on the internet available to be printed out - it really helped us flesh out our "Alice" theme! And for those of you who asked about the giant tape measure, I made it using 4" wide yellow ribbon and a black sharpie. My marks are 1" apart and measure 1", 1.5", 2", and 4" long. Quilting rulers really made this an easy task! Oh, and the calligraphy doodling I've been doing lately - although you could probably trace the numbers on, too.
And one last thing I'm whooping about this week - my husband got me this cool saddle stool for my birthday! I saw one like this at the AQS show in Paducah but even on show special prices it seemed a bit expensive. Amazon is a wonderful place! My hubby saved about $100 over the show price. It's adjustable, too - it goes from table height to counter height easily, and rolls everywhere. I used it while spending a day cutting, I've been using it while piecing, and I plan to give it a try when I do some quilting at the long arm. It's definitely helped with upper and lower back pain so far! Plus it's a lot softer to sit on than my hard stool...
So - - - can I get a whoop whoop?
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!
