I have been quite involved over the past 8 years with ' The quilt Project for breast cancer support' by donating 2 or 3 wall hangings each year to be auctioned across Canada.
I spent the morning discussing with Wendy Ellacott from Calgary Wellspring, how my quilts can help this wonderful cause, Wellspring is an international cancer support group and does wonderful work. It is a community-based, non-profit, Charitable center, offering Psychological, emotional and social support to individuals living with Cancer, their families and caregivers.
One of my quilts will be either auctioned or raffled at the Calgary Auction in November - and others will be used by Wellspring to help obtain corporate donors. Needless to say I am very honored to be asked to help in this way.
One of the quilts "First Snowfall" is in honor of Martin and Dodie Keller who are struggling with Martin's cancer.I have known Dodie on line for years through one or two of my groups and I am in awe of their wonderful attitude and courage in fighting this terrible disease.
I am feeling so good about this, that I had to share! The wall hangings are finished and just need to be bound. For some reason I wanted to have a group of them on hand as I usually don't - so it worked out well.
It is a gorgeous day today - a typical warm autumn day - the leaves are just about all
gold and soon will be on the ground -- it sure is pretty now though.
