Input needed!

Hope everyone is having a great holiday weekend!

June is scheduled to be Anita's month but since she's had a hectic year and is still catching up on life, we need to take a vote for June.

Let me know which you prefer:
1. Meg is willing to switch with Anita and we stay on track
2. Everyone gets a catch-up month, we extend the bee an extra month (into January 2011) and Anita now has January as her month.

I am heading out to run some errands but I'll also send an email so please respond to either this post or the email.

Quilting to find a cure for cancer

Hi ladies! This isn't really related to the bee but I thought you might be interested in this...

I am raffling off two quilts as part of my efforts to raise $3500 for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I am trying to help find a cure for blood cancers, and hopefully all cancers. We are *this close* to finding a cure for lymphoma and that cure could lead to a cure for all cancers.

More about this raffle and other details can be found here:

Both are lap quilt-sized, with the Land & Sea (blue & green) measuring approx 46" x 52" and the Raspberry Limeade (pink & green) measuring approx 42" x 60". Every $10 donated to this cause gets you 1 raffle entry, and each $50 gets you an additional entry. Example: donate $30, get 3 entries; donate $50, get 6 entries; and donate $100, get 12 entries. Winners for each quilt will be drawn at random August 1st.

Blocks for Ellen

I had fun working with these great fabrics, Ellen! Might have to pick up a few from that collection for myself. Hope these blocks are what you had in mind. I didn't have enough white to border both, hope you don't mind finishing that task. I'll drop them in the mail tomorrow. Enjoy!
