Finished Quilt & Garden Party

I finished hand sewing the back of the binding on the baby quilt Friday night at 11:30pm.

On Saturday, we held a fund raiser for The Walk To End Breast Cancer, which my sister (a 32 yr breast cancer survivor), has participated in for 6 yrs running.

It is a 60 Km 2-day walk through the streets of Toronto on Sept. 6 & 7. She has to raise $2000 each year in order to participate in the walk.

To read her story, click here.

With the funds raised today, the proceeds from several yard sales, and donations from friends and family, she has achieved her goal.

My friend L hosted a margarita party in her backyard as today's fund raiser. I was a nice hot non-rainy day and a good time was had by all.

And I'll throw in a couple Peanut pictures just because I can't stop taking her picture.
