Can I Get a Whoop Whoop? When in Quarantine....

 

Hi, all!

Friday has rolled around once again - and not just any Friday!  Do you realize that Christmas is six weeks from today????? So it's crunch time!  But before we all get down to the hard stuff, let's take a few minutes to whoop it up!  Are you ready?  Let's go!

*&*&*&*&*&*&*

As you know if you saw my blogpost on Monday, my husband and I have been in quarantine this week, because we both tested positive for COVID.  Not to worry, though, he is better and I never had any symptoms, so our quarantine officially ends today.  Hooray!  That's definitely whoop-worthy!

But while I was in quarantine, I managed to make some serious inroads in my stack of quilts to finish!  First up was Nathanael's annual quilt...


Wow!  That went well!  And since I was on a roll, I decided to load Lilli's monster Harry Potter quilt on the frame next.  It took a bit longer, but...


Isn't that cool?  The guest bed was the only place I could find to really show it off, it's so big!  I'll get some better shots later for a full post.  

And then Emmy's quilt was calling my name.  Hers is a whole cloth panel that I immediately knew would be her quilt, and I hope she loves it!  I had a lot of fun quilting this, and will definitely share some more pictures in a later post...


So now all three annual quilts are quilted and bound - but I still need to prepare the labels and attach them.  But oops - I ran out of label fabric and forgot to order more, so that will have to wait.  Thank heavens for Amazon Prime!


And one last thing I did this week - I made bread!!!  This recipe was touted as "Miracle No-Knead Bread" and I have to say that it was the easiest bread I have EVER made!!  Patience not being my virtue, I don't usually have much success with bread, which definitely takes patience - but this was so simple absolutely anyone could make it.  Now I just need to get my own dutch oven, since I had to borrow my daughter's.....

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!

Hugs!

Sarah

  11. I am commenting for the first time after enjoying your informative and uplifting blog for a while now. I really hate to burst your Christmas planning bubble, but Christmas is actually FIVE weeks away. I hope this doesn't throw a wrench into your schedule! :-)

  23. My husband and I have been having lots of problems living together, he never gives me attention or makes me happy because he has fallen in love with another woman outside our marriage. I tried my best to make sure that my husband leaves this woman but the more I talk to him about it the more he makes me feel sad and unhappy, My marriage started leading to divorce because he no longer gives me attention. I wanted to forget him but i love him and didn't want to lose him. We have been married for years and he is all I could call a true best friend and best in all, the man that handles my problems perfectly, the man that makes sacrifices for ,my happiness. I wanted him back in my life badly and I was so confused. My Friends told me to buy books about relationships, so I went online for relationship books while I came across a spell caster called Dr Emu. I read testimonies and reviews about him so I contacted him immediately, explained my problems to him. Same day , he casted a spell for me and assured me for 2 days that my husband will return to me and to my greatest surprise the third day my husband came knocking on my door and begged for forgiveness. I am so happy that my love is back again and not only that, we are about to get married again, he proposed. I wouldn't stop talking about him. Contact him today if you need his help via email: emutemple@gmail.com and you will see that your problem will be solved without any delay. Website: https://emutemple.wordpress.com/
