Moving Over to Sparrow in Flight

Shanna may still be unpacking, but she didn't let that stop her from getting her quilty fix with a finish this week. She's our fabulous host at Sparrow in Flight for TGIFF! Fly on over to link up one of your recent finishes and visit the other TGIFF! movers and shakers.

And speaking of living out of boxes, here's a parody of a popular song around here:

Happy Friday, all!

Gotye Bobbin to the end of the week/project...

TGIF!!!!! And TGIFF!!!!
MR has come up with a fun video post for almost every Friday, and me, I got nothing.  But Gemma does and it's a beautiful finish, one that makes you want to light a fire out the front of Gemma's house, ring the door bell and rush around to the back door to pinch it while she's putting the fire out kinda finish...
AND she's posted early, so I guess I'd better pull something out of my hat...

Yup, Red red robin comes bob bob BOBBIN along... cos Gemma's blog is PrettyBobbins. It's her first linky party so head on over and say Hi, follow, or link up if you have a fantastic finish!

Actually, no that song is far too annoying. Listen to some Gotye instead. Muppet style.

Now, I'm off to link up then I'm going to find my matches...

Why are we here?

The main reason we started TGIFF was because we both have trouble finishing things and we decided to challenge ourselves to finish off some of our big WIPS. TGIFF has certainly been responsible for kicking my ARMS into gear to finish sewing a number of projects that other wise would have languished.

We decided however, that we wanted TGIFF to be a bit different from the other finish along parties around. One of our reasonings was that different is good, but we also really wanted to give other people the chance to build their blogging skills and host link parties themselves that we could drive traffic to. It's all very well if you have thousands of followers to hold a linky party, but for smaller bloggers, the idea of having a party that no one may come to ... well, it would freak me out.

So TGIFF is here to give you a chance to host a linky party and build your readership. This week, Gemma at Pretty Bobbins is hosting. She has 37 followers so is exactly the sort of blogger we were thinking might really like the chance to host a linky party. Start thinking about a finish you might be able to link up and if or when you'd like to host a TGIFF party yourself!

A Bonnet Good TGIFF! To You From Brasier House

Happy Friday, all! So what do Star Trek and My Bonnie (Bonnet) Lies Over the Ocean have in common? They are two things I thought of in trying to come up with this week's promo post, but neither have anything to do with Diane's finish....or do they? Find out for yourself by checking our this week's TGIFF at Brasier House and link up one of your own finishes. Thank you for being our wonderful hostess this week, Diane!

Okay, this video has nothing to do with Diane's finish (although maybe she'll sing it on her trek this summer...), but I came across it this week and it's rather amusing.

Have a great weekend everyone!

1 oz Lemon Juice

Combine ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice and stir well. Pour into a Collins glass and garnish with a slice of lemon.
