Saturday Smile

If you are an Instagram user, you might have seen the flurry of activity surrounding #GETYOURQUILTYWISHESGRANTED. In the usual form of this quilting community, there is all kinds of giving going on. I am not sure who started it (if you know, please give them credit in ¬†the comments) but it is such a joy. IG quilters are posting a wish’ for a particular pattern, a certain piece of fabric, scraps from a certain line or colorway, and others are granting the wish. Yep, just out of the kindness of their quilty heart, mailing off their fabric, usually to someone they have not met, in an effort to make them¬†happy. Yet another example of why I love this community. It feels great to fill a need and is fun to receive something you have been looking for or have run out of. I have filled one wish so far and plan to run through the hashtag again and see what else I can do. Just because it is a nice thing to do.

On another note, my sister, Alicia, shared this video on her Facebook page a week or two ago. I loved it and have watched it a couple of times. It is a mashup of 66 classic movie dance scenes set to Uptown Funk, by Bruno Mars. I thought you might enjoy it too. It is a bit long but really entertaining. I am dating myself when I say that I used to sit and watch the Shirley Temple movies with my sisters. We would watch them when we were over at my Aunt’s house. It is such a fond memory and here is Shirley Temple dancing to Uptown Funk. It’s fantastic. Enjoy!
