Sew for the Cure

All year long the dedicated women of Sit and Stitch at the Country Loft work on quilts and projects for the annual Sew for the Cure Sale.  The front yard of the shop is covered with wonderful handmade projects and they are all sold very reasonably.  Last year they dedicated the sale to my daughter Megan's treatment.  The money was such a help to Megs and her family as she fought her battle against cancer.  (thanks again all of you).  The sale will be August 25th this year.  I am donating the runner you see here to the sale.  Donations are always gladly accepted!  If you have a quilt, runner, wallhanging, etc that you would like to donate, just make sure you get it to the Loft by Wednesday,  August 22nd.  For more information you can call 619 466-5411. 
     I hope you didn't melt this weekend.  San Diego was a bit WARM!  Have a great Monday...Jo Ann


  1. Cancer is a disease of the mind, body, and spirit. A proactive and positive spirit will help the cancer warrior be a survivor.Anger, unforgiving and bitterness put the body into a stressful and acidic environment. Learn to have a loving and forgiving spirit. Learn to relax and enjoy life. a friendly reminder from cancer treatment centers.

    1. Gerald....Megan approached her illness with hope and grace...and with a very positive attitude. After six and a half years, her melanoma was just a little stronger than she was....

  2. One lesson I learned about cancer (being a survivor myself) surviving has more to do with luck than a good attitude...otherwise Megan would be here. Unfortunately not everyone gets to survive this dreaded disease. There are many lessons about cancer – some are about living and others are about dying. Megan taught me to never give up...even to the end. Be a fighter – she is did it with grace and dignity. I’ll be listening for her on Saturday. I imagine she’ll be among us – I’ll be looking for that the light she had in life and sharing it with us.
    Thanks Megan
    Your always in my thoughts and prayers -
    Love Jeri Gonzales
