We're going quilting...well, Sally is!

Sally tried walking.  And liked it.  But not enough to go hard-core.  She leaves that up to me.

What she loves is quilting.  She took it up recently and has already completed her first, is working on her second and has planned her third.  Who knew!

With these successes, she has decided to make a special quilt and raffle it off to raise money for the Heart & Stroke Foundation of Ontario, our cause in 2010.

For those of you who have never quilted, this  is a major deal.  I can't count the hours she has spent so far cutting, sewing, researching and visiting her new favourite store, the quilt shop in Cookstown.  I work out a lot, but her effort, hours and concentration dwarf mine.

We are still working on the final details but plan to offer a limited number of tickets for our quilt raffle...your odds of winning will be good.  Plus, 100% of each ticket cost will go directly to the Heart & Stroke Foundation of Ontario via our secure donation site, moralesBcause.

Win, win, win!

Your donation gives you a chance to win a hand-made-from-the-heart quilt, you make a donation to the Heart & Stroke Foundation that helps research and education about heart disease and stroke.

We'll be blogging about this and posting photos and articles of the "Making of the Quilt" story over the upcoming months.  Yes, you will get to see how Sally puts this special quilt together.

Stay tuned...
