Wellspring- another large donation!

Wellspring has received another $2500.00 corporate donation so another of my quilts will be given away! I am really pleased that once again my wall hanging will be of use to help receive donations for this wonderful support house.

I don't know which of the quilts will be chosen, but I do hope they like it.

I will be attending the Auction put on by 'The Quilt' as funds received in the Calgary
auction will be given to Wellspring. The auction is on Thursday and I am really looking forward to it. Quilts from all over Canada and some from the U.S. are donated to
"The Quilt "for cancer support. Auctions are held in Stratford, Toronto, Calgary, and Kamloops and all the quilts have been divided up and have traveled to different parts of Canada. We have approximately 90 quilts here in Calgary. Carol Miller will be attending. Carol is the founder of the Quilt Project , and what a great lady she is. She has been the driving force behind the Quilt Project since its inception. I have been honored to
donate a couple of my wall hangings each year. This is the 2nd year that Wellspring has
been involved with the auction.
I am looking forward to see my friend Noell who is going to be there too. I haven't seen her for quite some time even though she lives here.
We had ANOTHER Chinook arch today. It is very unusual for us to get so many in a row.
We have had a wonderful October. It sounds as if we might get a little bit of snow tomorrow and Wednesday.
We had our little grand daughter Hayley here today - she is nearly five and she spends at least one day a week with us. What a joy she is! She is amazing on the computer , unbelievable. She went to her first movie yesterday and had a great time. Thought it was really neat.
I started the binding on my 2nd skating wall hanging (haven't decided on a name) and just have to finish it up and put on a label. I will give it to Wellspring for the first sponser when I go to the auction. I am glad to get it done. Life is good, and very busy for me right now, which is good.
I have been keeping track of the American election and I am sure tomorrow will be an
exciting day. Canadians are all talking about it and I hope that there are no major problems. I am sure everyone will be happy to get back to normal, no matter who
