Can I Get a Whoop Whoop? You Won't Believe It...

Hi, all!

It's Friday!!  Are you as ready for Friday as I am?  Not only is it the end of the work-week, but it also means it's time to get our whoop whoop on!  Let's get started!


I've had one main focus this week...

Keeping track of, and visiting, all the folks who have linked up for the end of the Hands2Help Charity Challenge 2017!

Jennifer's quilt

I've seen lots of amazing quilts...

Maxine's quilt

Here's just a few of them...

P.'s quilt
And been totally blown away by this year's response!

Jamie's quilt
As of Thursday evening, there are more than 162 link-ups, and I have even more that need to be linked up in my mailbox!

So that's what I'm whooping about!!

PS - If you haven't linked up yet, there's still time - the linky closes at 6 pm CST today (Friday 5/26).  

Be sure to drop by and check out some (or all) of the links for some awesome inspiration!!!

Can all these great quilters 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?
(This week's happy dance is in honor of the 40th Anniversary of Star Wars!)

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!

I May Have a Scrap Problem... A Little Progress!

Hi, all!  

Well, it's a busy week (Hands2Help is coming to an end!) but I didn't want the week to go by without sharing my Long Time Gone progress, and show you a little bit of inspiration!  So here's what I've done this week on Long Time Gone...

I put together some of the 64 flying geese needed for this quilt...

...and built some of the parts for the eventual flying geese blocks to come.  I wish I had time to finish this step this week, but I'm not holding my breath!  And now I'll tell you why...

With the end of the Hands2Help Challenge, the participants link up the quilts they've made for the chosen charities, and I spend my week cataloguing them and visiting all the links to leave comments.  In the course of doing that, I've seen some fabulous scrap quilts!  Here's just a few of them...

And that's just the tip of the iceberg!  I'd really encourage you to hop over and take a look at some of the more than 200 quilts that have already been posted - there's a ton of inspiration there!  Click here to go to the post.

So that's the extent of my scrappy activity this week!  What have you been working on?  Link up below and inspire us some more!!

Make-A-List Monday - A Brief Hiatus!

Hi, all!

Monday has rolled around again, and what a Monday!  The final linkup for Hands2Help 2017 started yesterday, and there are already 117 links posted!  I'm going to take a hiatus from Make-A-List Monday this week because there's so much to do - I need to visit all the links and leave comments, post pictures for the technologically challenged, get everything pulled together for the giveaways that will be doled out next Sunday - and maybe, in between things, get to a little sewing too.  And then there's the grandkids - it's the last week of school and on top of that they each have doctor and dentist visits, so my daughter needs a bit more help than usual!

So since this is what my to-do list would look like today, I think I'm going to avoid scaring myself and just take it one moment at at time this week!

Be sure to stop by the final link-up post and check out some of the amazing quilts that people have made for one of our charities this year!  I am astonished at the variety of quilts, each one unique and beautiful.  Here's just a small sample of what you'll see...

I'll be back next week with (hopefully) a little progress on the things on last week's list, and a clearer head!  

So now the question is - - - what are YOU working on this week?
