Friday is here again, and we all know what that means - it's time for us to get our whoop whoop on! It's been a big week around here, and I've got plenty to whoop about, so let's get started. And guess what - we've all got a chance to be part of the celebration!
So let's start with the celebration, first! I realized that exactly 10 years ago yesterday I wrote my first blog post, so it's my blogoversary! The blog has come a long way from where it started - as a way for me to be held accountable for using my stash of fabric. I wasn't even a quilter when I started the blog! It has been the source of many new friendships, a much bigger stash, and a fantastic learning tool. And that's cause for a party!
As I was cleaning out and packing up my studio this week, I found a box I had stashed away from way back in my Stash Builder Box days - and decided it would make a great giveaway to celebrate ten years! So to enter the giveaway, leave a comment answering the question left by the commenter before you, and leaving a question for the next person to answer. I'll start it off by asking, "What would you rather do than pack up a house full of thirteen years worth of clutter?" (I can think of a lot of things, but that doesn't help me one bit!) I'll draw a winner sometime on Monday and announce it on my Monday blogpost.
And speaking of packing, here's what my studio looks like now...
All my fabric is packed up!! And yes, it was difficult - but at least I got to pet it all as I put it in the boxes. And I know where it all is, so I can get to it if I need to.
I did, however, start a new quilt that will be a gift at the end of January - which should be interesting, since I don't know when I'll get my studio back up and running during the move!
This is the corner of the quilt I started - and I'm going to try to take some time each day to work on it, so maybe I can finish the top and quilt it before I take down my quilt frame and long arm machine. I'm pleased to say it's made from all scraps, except for the border setting triangles, and I think I just might be able to get it done in time to quilt it!
And here's the best news that I got today....
We are CLEAR TO CLOSE!! In less than a week, we will close on our new home! There's some carpeting work we want to have done before we move in, so I don't know exactly when we'll be living there instead of our current home, but hopefully by the end of the month!
And all of that is definitely worth 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!
And just a reminder - remember to enter the blogoversary giveaway!
