Hands to Help Flimsy done.......and a visit from Murphy....

“Learn to light a candle in the darkest moments of someone’s life. Be the light that helps others see; it is what gives life its deepest significance.”
Roy T. Bennett

I was so proud of myself on Friday because I got this post all ready to go for today, Sunday, which is the day that the Hands to Help first check-in linkup was set to open......and then Murphy intervened....

First I saw a little message from blogger saying they had several new themes.....well I haven't changed my blog theme in ages so I won't hurt to just look.........Wrong!  Before it was all over and done I had changed my theme and I couldn't find anything!  I really did like the theme and I just wanted to make a few changes but there were no links to the layout pages, etc, so I spent awhile trying to figure out how to find the html edit page and luckily I had saved my old theme and was able to get it back, but not before I had somehow deleted the post I had all ready to go for this morning!  ( about a run-on high school English teacher would be rolling her eyes)

I also had a different quote about giving on the initial post that I wasn't able to find this morning but I like the one above that I did find.......
So onward............

I am linking up this morning with Sarah at Confessions of a Fabric Addict on her Hands to Help Page........this is the 7th year for H2H and my second year joining them. If you haven't heard of this worthwhile cause I invite you to check it out! 

My inspiration for this little lapquilt I am making was a bingo block that my Sis and I each made for a May for Me celebration a few years ago.  I liked the bright colors and hope it will help a child undergoing chemo to stay a little warmer.  I will be sending this to Happy Chemo when it's finished.

I just started with the Bingo block as the center and built out from there.  The backing will be the same fabric I used on the second and final rounds.
