I've joined another team!

Saturday, February 19, 2011

Today I officially joined a new team. I'm very excited about it. I'm hoping to get added to the CATS team. The team I joined is called 2011 Winter-1 5% Challenge, and from there we get assigned to an "individual" team.

I just know that if I get accepted into CATS, I will get my mojo back, because my buddy GetFit2Live is on that one. She and I communicate nearly every day, encouraging one another.

For those of you who don't know me, I have another name. That is Krackers.

I make quilts for kids 8-18 who are battling cancer, and they are called Ally Cat ?Quilts by Krackers. I send them all over the world. I just need to rely on others to "find" the kids for me, and get their names and mailing addresses so I can make them a quilt.

If you go to my photo page you will see some of them.

This all started when our granddaughter, Ally, was diagnosed with leukemia. She always got so very cold from chemo, and asked me to make quilts for her and the other older kids. My grandkids started calling me Krackers, so............of course I HAD to use Ally's name, and then combined with Krackers.....you get the idea.

Today I am making a big wall quilt using one of my personal photos as an inspiration. Here is the photo I am using:

I snapped this photo on one of our hikes to Sol Duc Falls. Pretty, isn't it! I hope the quilt comes out almost as pretty.

    Your photo is lovely. I can just imagine what your quilt will look like.

    I hope you get on the CATS team, but if you don't, I'm sure you will find encouragement on your assigned team. It sounds to me that you've already found your mojo - it just may be in disguise.

    I'm so excited you're doing the challenge with me!! Whether you're on the Cats team or not, I'll be cheering you on, you can count on that. Love that photo; I can't wait to see what you come up with for the quilt. You do beautiful work! Oh, and I do not think you've lost your mojo, but the challenge (if you can get into it much) does help motivate me to specifically get my bones moving to help my team along. WOO HOO!
