Support Our Young Runners

Many children who participate in Reggae Marathon's Grand Prix Road Race Series need good running shoes.  Instead of throwing out those good used running shoes, bring them to Reggae Marathon in Negril and drop them in a specially marked box at Registration. We will distribute those shoes to the children taking part in the 2011 Road Race Series.

Hot! Hot! Hot!! lets get quilting

From Guest Blogger Sally, the latest update on the quilt that she is making for our Heart & Stroke Foundation fundraising this year.


Ok, it's so hot here, EVERYONE has gone to the malls! Really cold A/C (during peak hours)!
I was good: stayed home, went to the (very cool) basement to sew.
Since I finished Michael's birthday quilt, wanted to start working on the "donation" quilt.  Not sure about one of the fabrics though. It looked good at the time, but it seems a little dull now...I may have to reconsider/replace it.  Oh well...

Also, I think I need a higher table, at least counter height.  This bending over while cutting is v. hard on the back.  Sounds like I have some shopping in MY future!  New fabric, higher table.  LOL.

Talk later.  xoxoxo
