Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation Run for the Cure
These are the steps in my completion of my first completion for October for CGQC. Since the blocks were already done it was a simple completion. It is a borderless quilt, so even better! This will be a charity quilt to be used in fundraising. And...as you can see my helper was on hand for the completion. Thank goodness she is there, as she is the official comfort tester and quality control, and it does seem quite comfortable! See the progression- as the quilt gets bigger she just follows it just to make sure...such a funny girl.
This is what it looked like when we left home this morning at about 7:30. Yes, snow! We had about a 30 minute drive into Calgary where the Run for the Cure was. We volunteered at the water station, but oddly enough water was not a big seller this morning...
This is after about 75% of the runners and walkers had completed the run- not much better and a nice chilly wind! It is very touching to see families running for family or friends and the camaraderie is wonderful. We treated ourselves to a warm drink after and can enjoy the rest of the day close to the fireplace.
