Week 4 #44 Someone Working


I joined the Sarasota Friendship Knot Quilters Guild earlier this year and was excited to learn at the August 18th meeting we would be having a sew in to make pillowcases that would be donated to the organization ConKerr Cancer. I am familiar with ConKerr Cancer because my quilt guild in Des Moines IA. regularly donated pillowcases to this amazing organization. ConKerr Cancer collects and distributes pillowcases to children who are being hospitilazed for cancer treatment. At the sew in members donated fabric, cut, pinned, ironed and sewed over 120 pillowcases. It was a fun evening and I know all the children who receive the pillowcases will enjoy them as much as we did making them!

I have always enjoyed photography, but with encouragemet from family and friends over the past several years I began to realize I really love it! Belonging to this blog and a local digital photo group has challenged me to look at the beauty of the world and to enjoy capturing it with my camera.

  9. by the way the quilt store on Honore is being featured in quilt Sampler magazine this year and they’re partying over there tomorrow (Saturday the 30th). I usually buy that issue of the magazine so I have to stop by,
    Carolyn, do you go to the LWRDPC meetings?
