Can I Get A Whoop Whoop? So Much to Be Thankful For!

Hi, all!

Wow - talk about time flying!!  Can you believe it's Friday already?  This week has just flown by, and I know many of you probably have lots of fun plans for the Memorial Day weekend.  Ours will be full of boats and spending time with the grandkids - but before the festivities start, let's get our whoop whoop on!


I have been diligently working this week on the final Hands2Help link-up, counting all the quilts and marking down those who participated.  And wow, is it exciting!!!  As of the time I'm writing this, we have had more than 300 quilts donated!  I'm excited to see what the final number is - you can come back on Sunday to find out!  And there's still time to link up if you haven't already - the linky closes at noon CST today (Friday).  Be sure to head over there and take a look at all the beautiful quilts!

Just check out this Instagram post from Little Lambs Foundation - those quilts in the background are some that were sent as part of Hands2Help this year!  Isn't it wonderful to see them all together?

And I wanted to share (again) my own quilts for this year's Challenge!  This quit will be going to Little Lambs Foundation for Kids, a group that works with foster children.  They provide each child with a backpack with personal care items and a comfort item of some sort.

And this quilt, made using Jamie Elfert's great tutorial, will be going to Quilty Hugs for Happy Chemo!  This was a great scrap buster, and I love Jamie's pattern - so simple, yet it looks complicated.  

And that's what I'm excited about today!  

Can I get a whoop whoop?


And now it's your turn!

What's making you whoop it up this week?

What's making you dance a little happy dance?

Share!  We want to dance right along with you,

And it's always more fun to dance with friends!

The party will stay open until Sunday midnight.

Hope to see you there!
