Can I Get a Whoop Whoop? Baby Steps...


Hi, all!

Friday has rolled around once again, and that means it's time for us to get our whoop whoop on!  Are you ready?  Then let's get started!


It's been a week filled with finishes, near-finishes, beginnings, and ongoing results.  First, a near-finish...

This t-shirt quilt top is finished and just waiting for the backing to arrive!

And then a finish....

Our new shower door was finally installed!  We've been trying to do this since the end of December, and after a multitude of problems, it's finally done.  Now at least I don't have to worry about getting stuck in the shower when the door won't open.... 

And now for the beginnings!  My youngest granddaughter has a birthday coming up while we are on vacation, and since we will be together at the beach, I started this...

Her very own mermaid tail!  The child swims like a fish, and is fairly certain that all she needs in life is a mermaid tail to be happy.  So of course, Nana will provide!

And finally, and best of all, as of the writing of this post, 215 people, from 45 states, 6 Canadian provinces, and the continent of Australia, have signed up for this year's Hands2Help Comfort Quilt Challenge! And that is AMAZING!!  But wait - you say you haven't signed up yet?  Why not?  Jump over to the Hands2Help 2021 page (up under my blog header picture) and fill out the form contained in the post.  Do it before Saturday afternoon and you'll be in the drawing for the signup giveaway, too!  But if you miss that deadline, don't think all is lost - you can still sign up and participate after that, all the way up to the end. And there's giveaway goodies for the finishers, too!w

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!




  1. Granddaughters and mermaid tails... I crocheted a mermaid tail for mine; yours looks so intriguing! Can't wait to see the finished gift! Oh, and your (beautiful) new shower looks as if it has some postage stamp quilting... :)

  2. A mermaid tail will be so much fun. Nana to the rescue. ☺

  3. Oh my goodness, a mermaid tail! Your little grandie will love it.

  4. Awesome news about the H2H sign-ups, Sarah! Enjoy your vacation. Happy birthday, Emmy!!

  5. You've done a stellar job on that T Shirt quilt. I haven't tried sewing shirts without some sort of sashing. But yours looks great.

  6. I'm not sure which is worse: trapped inside the shower, clean but constrained. Or trapped outside the shower, free but dirty! Glad you got it working properly so you can be free and fresh :)

  7. Hooray for new shower doors that work properly! (It's a beautiful shower to start with.) That is a terrific t-shirt quilt, and what fun to be making a mermaid tail!! That will be a very nice vacation.

  8. Absolutely! The new mermaid tail is adorable--she will love it, of course.
