Quilt Raffle

I made a quilt and I finished it!  Hard to believe I know.  This is the quilt I made and my daughter Meg machine quilted it for me.  We are raffling it off this year at the Relay for Life in Albany, Oregon.  It's our main fundraiser this year.  This years relay is June 17 and 18 and takes place at the West Albany High School track.  We camp out all night and walk the track and try to raise money to fight cancer. Anyway, if anyone would like a ticket give me a shout.  Tickets are $1.00 each and we only have 1000 tickets to sell. The quilt is 60 x 60 in size. All money raised goes to the Cancer Society. It would be a nice lap quilt to take a nap with.  And if you like pink then this is the quilt for you. We will have the drawing for the winner the morning of June 18 and then we will all go home and take a long nap ourselves.

A Painting for my church

This is a painting I've been working on forever.  At least it feels like forever.  I was asked by some ladies at my church to paint something for the parish hall, because it was kind of drab and didn't have much going on in it.  This is the outcome.  I'm telling you I worried about this so much I'm surprised I don't have an ulcer.  But, I'm happy to report that everyone at St. Alban's Episcopal Church in Albany, Oregon seems to just love it.  It is suppose to depict the seven days of creation.  My rendition anyway.
St. Alban's is a small but mighty bunch.  When I had cancer these people carried me in every way they could.  I'm blessed to have them in my life.  If I ever had any doubts, I don't anymore, angels walk among us everyday and I get to see some every Sunday!
Oh, by the way.  That lady laughing at the bottom of my photo is my Mom.  She laughs a lot.
