Happy Birthday Canada!

I am so thankful to live in such a beautiful country and
today we celebrate its 146th birthday.
But for many in the province of Alberta who have had their lives turned upside down with the recent flooding, there may not be much celebrating going on.
A quilter in Calgary, Alberta, is offering to make quilts for the flood victims with blocks sent to her by other quilters.
If you'd like to help, just go to her blog,, and check out her June 25th post, "Just One Slab".
Many thanks to Cheryl Arkison for taking this initiative and to Sharon Coxon,  for making me aware of it.

  2. Hi Cheryl,

    I hope you survived the record breaking temps we had yesterday here in the lower mainland and Fraser Valley.

    Stay cool.
