Another week has come and gone, and it's finally Friday again! And that means it's time for us to get our whoop whoop on - are you ready? I know we're getting close to the holidays and it may be hard to share, but don't feel like you have to show off a finish. You can share progress shots if you want! So let's get started!
I've had a busy week, but a real mixed bag of achievements. Here's a good overview of my week...
How about this? I got this cool bird feeder for my birthday at the end of October, and the birds finally decided it might be worth checking out this week! They are insistent little buggers and I've learned to keep the feeder full or they will tap on the window to get my attention....
And this beautiful bundle of Sugarland Park by Amy Smart showed up at my house this week! Aren't the colors pretty?
These, friends, are chaffles and they are quickly becoming favorites around our house. Chaffles are made of egg and cheese, plus some other things thrown in, and then the batter is put in a mini-waffle maker. The ones above have mozzarella cheese, almond flour, psyllium husk and baking powder added and my husband tells me they made wonderful a breakfast sandwich with bacon and cheese. Tonight I made some with cheddar cheese, bacon bits, and minced jalapeño to go with our chili - and they were awesome! It's nice to finally have a viable substitute for cornbread...
I also finished Nathanael's annual quilt this week! I'll share more pictures soon - I didn't have time to take any yet - but it is something I achieved this week and it's good to have one ready to go. Now I just need to get to the other two!
And this is my first swirl photograph! I saw someone posted one on Instagram recently, and when I was getting ready to take a progress shot of this quilt top, I thought it might be fun and different. I really enjoyed setting it up and love having a new technique in my wheelhouse!
And here's a little true life - I was so proud of getting this quilt top finished today, but as I was just looking at this picture, I realized that two of the blocks are out of order! So tomorrow I will be carefully picking out the stitching and swapping them out so it's perfect....
So (except for the last one!) - - - 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!
