Can I Get A Whoop Whoop? Two Down, One To Go!


Hi, all!

Wow, can you believe it?  Friday has rolled around once again, and we all know what that means - it's time to get our whoop whoop on!!  I hope you're ready, because I know I am!  Let's get started...


I'm very excited to tell you that...

...yesterday, for the first time in almost a year, I fired up Jolene and we did some quilting!!

And then I jumped over to the Juki and we did some binding...

And look!!  Dragon Dreams is finished!!!

Isn't he cute?  I think Nathanael is going to love this little guy.  Of course it doesn't hurt that there's so. much. green. in this quilt!  The pattern is called Dragon Dreams, by Apples & Beavers (wouldn't you love to know the origin of that name?) and I did make it a little larger by adding a narrow stop border and a wider outer border.  It now measures about 50"x60".

And now I have finished two of the three annual quilts for my grandkids.  The last will have to wait until the wool batt I ordered arrives, but hopefully that will be here next week (fingers crossed!).

While I was quilting, Bree kept watch in a patch of sunlight on the upper level of my studio...

See? She CAN be a good dog when she wants to be!

And I really have to share this with you...

I think anyone could win an ugly sweater contest with one of these!

So now - - - 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!

  3. That dragon quilt is just darling! Congratulations on a great finish!

  4. What a cute finish! Nice job. :)

  5. I hope Jolene wasn't cranky when you woke her up. It must feel good to get back in the swing of things.

  6. I've recently fired up my machine after a few months off. It always feels so good, and I wonder why I didn't just do it earlier. LOL The sleeping dragon is so adorable! What a great finish! Whoop! Whoop! Happy quilting! -Andrea

  7. Is there a pattern for the dragon? It is so cute

  8. How wonderful that you are off and running on the sweet sewing machines. What a darling project you whipped up as well. Lol I think those are winners for the ugly sweater contest. Happy quilting.

  9. What a perfect dragon! So nice to have you at the quilting machine again!

  10. I finished my three candle mats. Made from a vintage, hand stitched piece I found at a salvage shop, they are heat proof and can be used under the candles that were poured in cheese molds. To finish the gift I found some matches in little glass bottles and put everything in cute tins I found at the fabric shop. Happy to be done!

  11. Love that Dragon Quilt! Hurray for finally playing with Jolene!
