Here it is, Friday again - and you know what that means! It's time for us to get our whoop whoop on! I hope you're ready, so let's get started!
This morning when I woke up, I checked the weather like I always do. Imagine my surprise when I saw that they were predicting 1-3 inches of snow for us! Well, in Tennessee that doesn't mean much - we get lots of predicted snow that never happens. But at 7 a.m. I looked out the window.....
Snow!! Big fat beautiful flakes - and the best kind, because it didn't stick! And you know what snow means - snow day, sew day! So I headed up to my studio - my big, beautiful new studio that still needs a LOT of work - and did some sewing!
In the course of that sewing, I lost at the game of "binding chicken"...
3/8 of a stinking inch! That's all I would have needed to make it reach - but it's all good. I found a piece of navy blue to stretch it just that little bit needed, and ended up with this pretty finished quilt. FYI, I only did the binding on this one - it's a ministry quilt, pieced by one lovely lady, with a back made by a second lady and quilting by a third. Lots of hands and love in this one!
Then I put the binding on this quilt, requested by one of the ministers on our staff for a special need. The top was pieced (we think) by a lady, once part of our quilt ministry, who died a few years back. She left us tons fabric and a lot of pieced tops that we are still working our way through. This is a particularly lovely one that Rita quilted up on Wednesday night now has a binding and is ready to become someone's quilty hug!
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!
