Best of the Valley Quilt Show starts tomorrow and should be as wonderful as in the previous years. As you all know, lots of long hours and hard work go into setting up quilt shows. I have been fortunate to have my quilts accepted and once participated in a special exhibit with Julie Mitchell and Lura Schwarz-Smith.
This year my piece is "Love It, Don't Leave It". I volunteer with many others to keep our environment picked up. And this piece developed one day while I was helping. You would be amazed what is left by the side of the road. With the turn of the economy there are fewer soda cans, but lots of cups, bags and bottles.
One day a gentleman with an old cowboy hat stopped, his old truck was barely hitting on all cylinders. He handed us a $20.00 bill and said, Thank you, please go to lunch on me. We told him Thank you, and gave the monies to the mountain organization that purchases Orange vests, sticks to pick up materials, and sends out announcement flyers.
Help keep our country picked-up.
