What a week it has been - and now Friday is here and it's time for us to get our whoop whoop on! Are you ready? Let's get started!
Well, first things first. Last week I teased you about the final numbers for Hands2Help 2019 - and just in case you didn't see them earlier this week, we ended up with 200 quilters making 876 quilts!!! That is so so so amazing - and it also means that through the Hands2Help Challenge, the blogging community has made and donated over 2300 quilts, supported many small charities, and touched lives all over the world. You are all SPECTACULAR!
And once Hands2Help was finished, that meant it was time for all the "thank you"s to go out. Some were mailed directly by the sponsors, but others have been accumulating at my house for the past few months. This is what one corner of my office looked like Monday morning...
All of the tubs on the tabletop, and the three boxes to the right, contained things I needed to mail out. Tuesday morning Lilli came over and helped me get things started. We packaged up the first big IKEA bag full of stuff...
...and headed out to the post office. Wednesday saw two more trips to the post office, as I packed packages in the early morning, went to the post office, then came home and packed up some more and returned. My local post office is a small town one, with only one teller (is that what you call them?) ...
... and let me tell you, she's a champ! We laughed and talked as she processed all the packages - not just Wednesday, but also Thursday - five big IKEA bags full of packages all in all. And now my office looks more like this...
An empty table and tubs...
Lots of empty boxes....
And a nice clean desk!!
And that small bag contains all the packages that remain for me to take to the post office Friday morning!
Now THAT deserves 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!
