Can I Get A Whoop Whoop? This Week's Accomplishments...



Hi, all!

It's Friday again, already!  That means it's time to get your whoop whoop on - - - I hope you're ready!  

*&*&*&*&*&*&*

Even though I had the little girls for three days this week, I did manage to get some piecing and quilting done this week...


I quilted and bound this pretty scrappy top, donated by Ginette.  It will be going to a young woman whose cancer has returned after four years cancer-free.

 

And I also quilted and bound this colorful top, made with donated pieces (I wish I could remember who donated them!).  It is going to a young woman whose husband, a firefighter, was killed in the line of duty.  She has a five-year old son and is expecting another baby shortly.


I also turned these beautiful blocks donated by Laura into a quilt top!


Isn't that gorgeous?


I love the way the colors glow like stained glass!  It's always a pleasure to work with other people's beautiful blocks, and these colorful blocks were a special treat - right up my alley!

And now, to commemorate my week with the girls...


On Monday we went to see my daughter and husband at work and I got this great pic of DH with his favorite girls...


And then today, I got this pic of the girls playing with blocks together.  Emmy really wants to be just like her big sister!

Lilli starts kindergarten in about three weeks - hard to believe!  She's been staying with me since she was four months old - it's going to be strange not to have her around as much, but I'm sure Emmy will keep me on my toes!

*&*&*&*&*&*&*

Now it's your turn!


What has made you dance the happy dance this week?

Remember - it doesn't have to be a finish - just whatever you've been happy to accomplish!

Share with us - we want to dance along!!

The linky party will stay open until Sunday midnight -
Plenty of time to join in!!

Hugs!

Sarah

PS - if you don't know how to dance the happy dance, here's a little tutorial...

  9. Sarah, you make such beautiful quilts, and your little snippets about the recipients is so touching. By the way, I was totally thinking "stained glass" when looking at that gorgeous quilt top-even before you said it!

  17. I don't know if I have enough adjectives, but I'll try. The scrappy quilt is awesome! I'm in love! The quilt for the fireman's wife is superb, sensational and beautiful. Thank your for your ministry. My dad, a firefighter, died because of injuries in a fire. I was four. Bless you. And love those adorable and sweet grandchildren.
