Can I Get A Whoop Whoop? Not a Finish, But Progress!

 

Hi, all!

It's Friday once again (the first one of 2023!) and that means it's time for us to get our whoop whoop on!!  Are you ready?  Let's go!

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

I don't have a finish this week, but I did make some good progress on a new project!  I started out making these...


...Then I moved on to these....


...and lastly, I made a whole bunch of these!


Yesterday I laid them all out on my design wall (all that would fit, anyway!) and started sewing them together....


Isn't that pretty?  And it uses a TON of 2.5" squares!  Win/Win!

And on another front, I thought I had lost my calendar whiteboard - I went to change it to January, and it had disappeared off the wall!  I looked to see if it could have fallen down and slipped between the cabinet and the wall, and it looked like the top of the worktable was too close to the wall for it to slip between, plus I didn't see it beside the cabinet.  I even stuck a ruler back there to see if I could feel it, but didn't.  I checked with my grands to see if they had taken it down to play with - they swore no.  My husband and I looked everywhere to see if we could find it, and couldn't.  Then my husband said that it had to be next to the wall, because there wasn't anywhere else it could be.  I said no, he said "bet", and I bet him it wasn't, loser to cook dinner.  


Well, dang it if it wasn't between the cabinet and the wall!  It was thinner than I remembered, which is why it just disappeared back there.  So I ended up cooking supper that night - but I do have my calendar back and now I feel super organized! Or at least, I don't feel like I'm going to forget something now....

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!

  4. love the Paul Simon, Chevy Chase video - years ago the girls had VH1 on all the time and we loved to dance and sing along to that song and clip - it used to be a great channel to watch back in the 80's and I wonder if it is still around?

  7. I'll give you two Whoops! for getting your calendar back, even if you did have to cook. I never bet against my husband on physics things, lol. Thank you for the linky party so I can keep my New Year's resolution!

  8. I wouldn't have bet. I never bet against my husband when it comes to things like that. I know he's right. But anywho! What counts is that you have your calendar back. Yay! Love what you are working on. Enjoy! ;^)

  15. LOL I've done that with a block or a patch and driven myself CRAZY trying to find it, gave up, cut another, and oh yep, the next day or two later, it magically appeared. Ugh! This is a great quilt - I am kinda/sorta looking for/thinking of designing some kind of quilt to use up a TON of 2" squares from my colourwash days.
