Can I Get A Whoop Whoop? A Little Fun Sewing...


Hi, all!

It's Friday again - are you ready to get your whoop whoop on?  It's been a busy week, and a lot of fun - both on the sewing front and the granddaughter front!  So here's what I've got to share...

First of all, Shannon hosted a SuperSewing Twitter party Sunday night during the Super Bowl - and I worked on some small projects while watching the game.  This pillow is one of the projects I started Sunday and finished on Monday...


Isn't it pretty?  


I like the quilting too - curvy organic lines that echo the curves in the piecing.  The background fabric is a gorgeous piece of rough-textured Irish linen that was in my grandmother's stash.

And I also finished the second commissioned baby quilt...


Don't you just love my little model?


She wasn't smiling much, but at least she sat there!


I love this pic that shows the texture of the quilting..


Of course, it was much more fun when big sister Lilli joined in the party too!!

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

&^&^&^&^&^&^&

And now it's your turn!

What are you dancing a happy dance about today?

What made the sun shine a little brighter
in your neck of the woods?

Share with us!  We want to dance along with you!

The party will stay open until Sunday midnight - 

So be there or be square!!

Hugs!

Sarah

  3. It is a dreary,cold day here so I am trying to burst out of pity party about that;) Need to do a workout and then some flash cards with the boy:) {Man do I sound uplifting or what?!} Maybe I need to baste a quilt and I will feel better!

    Your girls are such sweeties:)

  5. I love your pillow. Recently we received from MIL a pale yellow linen tablecloth and I'm thinking of repurposing it into placemats. Your pillow gives me some ideas!

    And of course your adorable commissioned quilt and your cute models. Love it!
