Whooping Up Friday


I'm joining Sarah with Whoop, Whoop Friday.  I showed these stars all over the house and managed to wrestle them into their center formation.  Not an easy task all week as it seems for the last 2 weeks every one near and far in our family has been ill (including me) with either the flu or one of the several viruses going around right now.  I have been chauffeur for a few to the hospital or doctors - and would have rather been napping on the couch.


Then I managed one border - then another day, another border......  I hate borders............


And then I talked myself into putting that third border on today.  I wanted this done and fabrics picked up.  I would have loved to take a full shot of this, but we went from a glorious, warm day into a horrid storm (tornado warnings) - and at 84" square I have no where in the house to hang it for a photo.  This quilt will go into the tote for a finish in 2016. 

This weekend will have very little sewing as we are rearranging (and cleaning) the shop for Christmas sales.  Maybe I will get to some of those melon blocks for some slow stitching.

Sewingly Yours,
Sharon

  2. Oh my. Your cluster of stars looks awesome.
    Sorry to hear you aren't well. Hope you recover soon. A nasty chest thing with a cough is going around here. I'm trying to outrun it.

  14. I sure hope everyone starts feeling better soon! I also hope the weather calms down. We had quite a wind storm on Thursday, I was sure we would lose power, but didn't. I love your Star top, especially the different sizes of stars. It is beautiful!

  19. Sometimes I forego the borders, because it's so much my least favorite part. LOL! So, kudos to you for persevering!! And you definitely deserved to whoop, whoop it up!! Hoping the 'bugs' stay away for the rest of the season and you stay healthy! :)
