Yesterday The Country Loft had their annual Outdoor Quilt Show and Sew for the Cure Quilt Sale. Here are some of the women waiting in line to be the first to see the quilts as we hang them. A wonderful group of women called the Sit and Stitchers meet several Wednesdays a month a sew all year round. Then many quilters in the community donate their creations to the cause. Over the years, the money has been donated to many different organizations who do work related to cancer. This year they decided to set up a fund for my daughter Megan to help cover some of the out of pocket expenses of her treatment. (Unfortunately we found out in August that her tumors have begun to grow again. ) Needless to say my family was blown away by them thinking to do this!

Here are some of the quilts that were for sale at the event. The response was overwhelming. I just could not believe how many people came up to me to say how happy they were that the money was going to someone they know. I want to thank each and every one of you for your generosity. (for more photos of the sale and the day go to )

It was an unbelievable day and when I called Megan and John to tell them about it they were just stunned. I cannot say Thank You enough. John asked me to give all of you big hugs. If I missed you on Saturday, consider yourself hugged now! My best to you all, Jo Ann
