Can I Get a Whoop Whoop? One Down, Two to Go!

Hi, all!

Wow! Another week has flown by, and it's Friday again - and we all know what that means, right?  It's time for us to get our whoop whoop on!  So grab your camera, take some pictures, and show off for us!  Let's get started....


I am so very happy to say that one of the annual quilts has moved from this.... this.... this!

And this week, I did the quilting and binding!!

I did have a binding "assistant"...

When I first looked down and saw her there, her nose was millimeters away from the white end of the binding strip (I was sewing it onto the quilt at the time) and it took quite a bit of talking/threatening to convince her that it would NOT be a good idea to grab that end and head for the hills!

But then she settled down and took a nap while I finished the quilt, and I can now say one down, two to go!! The other two are ready for quilting, I just need to decide exactly what I'm going to do on them.

And in other news, take a look at the gigantic mum I bought for the front porch this week! I went to our local nursery when I saw a Tiktok where they were advertising $10 mums, thinking I would get three of them for the front porch, but they were so big I just got two - one for my daughter and one for me.  I don't think I could have even put another one in the back of my car - it was jammed full!  I'm hoping I can kept alive through at least part of the holiday season, and they should look really nice with my front porch decorations.

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. It's nice to have a dog grow out of that 'chewing' stage-at least most of the time!

  2. Your sewing pal is such a cutie! Congratulations on getting one of the Christmas quilts finished. I look forward to seeing what you do with the other two.

  3. Congrats on your one down, two to go (and at the quilting stage no less!) I'm glad that your sewing pal behaved! Take care.

  4. Hooray for one quilt done! Glad no one ran off with the binding tail - hard to resist!

  5. Would that sweet little dog steal your binding strip? Ha!! I bet she would but glad she snoozed instead. Your mum looks amazing. I think we missed buying mums this year. It’s nice to see yours.
