Every where you turn

Have you ever noticed that there are times when it seems like every time you turn around someone you know or love has some type of cancer? It seems like lately it has either been someone in my family or someone close to me that has been affected by this terrible disease and there has been nothing I could do about it. This time I decided that I had to do something to help.
So here is what is going on, We are going to put on an Open Horse Show in January to help raise money for my friend. Along with this horse show is going to be an auction. One of the items that will be auctioned off will be a memory quilt that I will donate. I love doing memory quilts because they become a very personal keepsake for our families. I am going to hold a contest or two to go along with the Sharon Vieyra Cancer Benefit Fund facebook page. For the 50th person to like the page and the person who referred them I will give away a cute little tote or scripture tote custom made by me. So go to the page and recommend it to your friends and good luck on the tote!

Lover's Knot

Let's try this again! I am sorry that this is not quite as good of a picture as I wanted to have to showcase my quilt. When I started this quilt it was because I wanted to show what could be made with my friend Katherina's fabric. She is the owner of Sew-n-Sew's Place in Roosevelt Utah. I know that it is called Lover's Knot but to me it represents friendship. Katherina has been a very good friend to me and has taught me many things and has given me opportunities to grow in my general sewing and in my quilting. Today another dear friend of mine died. This friendwas my 6 year old Green cheecked Conure named Zookie. Zookie was a very loved member of our family and he will be greatly missed. My quilt is dedicated to my two good friends Katherina and Zookie.

Shop Hopping

Yesterday Katherina and I went to Salt Lake and visited tons of fun Quilt shops that we have been hearing about. Boy did we get lots of fun ideas!!
We hit Pipers, Whimsey cottage(where we actually helped a customer!), and quite a few others before getting to the best one of all!! The Material Girls!!! What a cool store and how do they get their fabrics before anyone else does? We had such a good time and I couldn't leave without buying some of Amy Butlers newest line(which isn't supposed to be out until December!) I can't wait to start sewing with it! At first I was going to make a quilt out of this beautiful fabric but now I think I what to make a bag with part of it!! I bought a new bag pattern too!! I almost forgot to tell you the name of the new line! Of course those of you who have been waiting for this know already but here it is anyway "Love" and I just love this line!!!
Don't forget the Blogger's Quilt Festival tomorrow. I sure hope my quilt is ready in time. Yikes!!!
Got to get that one bound!! Watch tomorrow and see if I make it in time!
