With so much going on coming up to the holidays I need to sneak in an extra mid week newsletter. Behind the scenes here at whipup headquarters I have 2 quilt tops ready to quilt (I will be offering these as patterns on whipup too), I have been baking and crocheting, reading, making and writing. My kids are in various performances and end of year activities, sporting things and social things are keeping us busy on the weekends. We are planning our handmade christmas too – more on that later!
