Can I Get a Whoop Whoop? Progress is Progress!


Hi, all!

Have you had a great week?  I hope so - because it's Friday, and that means it's time for us to get our whoop whoop on!  If you're anything like me, finishes are few and far between lately, but I've got some progress I'm whooping about - maybe you do too?  Let's get started!


Well, as I said, I've not had much success with finishes this week - my sew-jo is still MIA - but I did move some things along a bit!

There's a lot going on in this picture - I loaded a friend's quilt on the frame, which is the obvious part.  But in the background you can see, on the far right, the three finished memory quilt tops.  To the left of them, you can see the backing I made for those quilts, so they are ready for quilting too!

Then I decided a little mindless sewing was in order, so I sewed up a mess of half square triangles for Nathanael's annual quilt!

I also got to spend some quality time with this kid this week - she did her home-schooling lessons at my place, and once she finished we did some work in the studio, then moved to the kitchen.....

...and made some delicious chocolate chip cookies!  It's pretty bad when she's got the recipe memorized, but they are so good!

All in all, a pretty good week!  Lots of progress AND cookies!

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. Pretty memory quilts! Enjoy the family time and cooking delicious cookies ;)

  3. I love your quilt hanging racks behind the longarm!!! Brilliant idea! I'm glad to hear you're having such a great time with your granddaughter!!!

  4. Kinda thinking the cookies steal the show this week!! I do like those blues and greens!

  5. have a drum kit in the sewing studio?! Do you get a drum roll and cymbal crash when you finish a quilt? (How awesome would that be!) LOL

  6. progress is happening and a day with grand daughter is perfection!

  7. I'm slowly recovering my sew-jo, hopefully yours will return soon but you are still getting more done than I did when mine was MIA, LOL! Ooo, those cookies look so good :-)

  8. Well, now I want cookies! And maybe some of those hsts, too!

  9. Looks to me like a LOT accomplished, and you have made me seriously drool with the picture of those cookies!
