Can I Get a Whoop-Whoop?? Collaborative Effort....

Hi, all!  

Well, Friday has rolled around again - are you ready to get your whoop whoop on?  

Here's one of my accomplishments for the week - which is really a collaborative effort with Selina of Selina Quilts!  Selina participated in the Scrappy Block Challenge that ran on my blog earlier this winter, and I had to laugh at her initial reaction - she didn't feel like she was a "designer" and wouldn't be able to come up with something.  Well, she did come up with a great design, and even won the giveaway!  She mailed the quilt top she created to me, and this week I put borders on it to bring it up to size and quilted it.  

This pretty quilt was given to a woman I met when I went for my radiation treatment last Friday.  She was undergoing radiation treatments for lung cancer, and they had just recently discovered that she had a tumor in her brain too.  Her doctor said that if she took chemo, he could probably give her another six months.  Rather than being devastated, she was cheerfully greeting everyone and then talking to a car service to see if she could get a ride to chemo, since she didn't have any family or friends in town who could get her there.  I figured there was a reason I overheard her whole story, and found out that the next Monday was her last radiation treatment - so I finished up Selina's pretty top for her.  The nurse at the doctor's office gave it to her so it could be anonymous - all she knows is that our church sent her a quilt!  Thanks, Selina, for all your help with this ministry quilt!!

I'm also really whoop-whooping because of the response we're already getting to the Hands2Help Charity Challenge 2012!!  Signups start this Sunday - come check it out and join us!!


So now it's your turn!

It doesn't have to be a finish -
