just another Dolly Mama finish

Rise and Whine Dolly Mama
I have been so busy lately with my charity quilts, and other things around the house that my poor little Dolly Mama's project fell to the wayside.  I finished the quilt tops for the grand kids quilt and need to get them quilted, which I will be doing in the next few weeks. There are also 6 of the charity quilts ready to be quilted and a baby quilt for my niece.
   I will be getting back to working on the charity quilts as many
of the theme squares are in now and there are more on their way. I will also be getting back on track with the Dolly Mama Project... there are still lots of the kits to be done.  Winter will soon be on us which means more time for stitching and sewing.
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month
I have re posted this quilt as a reminder to all ladies to make a appointment for your annual mammogram if you haven't had it done this year. Takes just a few minutes and is so important in the fight against breast cancer. Early detection saves so many lives so Think Pink
As you might remember this lovely quilt was sent to a lady who is going through treatment for breast cancer.  She loved her quilt and was so thrilled to have been chosen to receive such a beautiful quilt.  The Pink and the blue fabrics used on this quilt were donated by one of the WOCS members.  Members also stitched the squares from suggestions about Teresa's favorite things and of course the awareness ribbon and pink ribbon angels made their way on to the quilt as did Teresa's dog, her favorite flowers and sewing items.

1,000 cranes on display
Also I wanted to announce that my grand daughter is at it again.  Lizzy took on a project last year to raise Money for the Juvenile Diabetes Research foundation.  She read that if you folded a thousand origami cranes, your wish would come true.  Lizzy decided to ask for donations of $ 1.00 for each crane she folded, the donors name was placed on the crane.. When she reached her goal the cranes were displayed in her school and then were given to JDRF at their annual fundraiser with the check for the  $ 1,000 she raised making the cranes.  After she finished with the cranes she started selling the sneakers this summer for JDRF.. Well the other night I was informed that Lizzy has once again decided to do the origami crane fundraiser for JDRF.  She has a site where you can make a donation and see all the photos taken from her last fundraiser.  This little girl is hoping that the money she raises will help in the fight against Juvenile Diabetes.  Lizzy is only 10 and so committed in her fundraising activities, we are all so very proud of her.

Garage Sale Weekend
This weekend I hope to be holding a garage sale, time to fall clean and get rid of things that are just taking up room. Plus the holidays will soon be with us and the extra money will help.

Lizzy is the best, the birds are beautiful and she accomplished something to the end. She is a blessing.
