Last weekend’s accomplishments.

Well there wasn’t much time for sewing, my sister came for a visit!  I had my pants finished in advance so that we could laze around all weekend.  Well, except for the 5 km walk/jog we did.  My two sisters and I did the CIBC Run for the Cure Sunday.  It wasn’t too hot and it wasn’t too cold and it was extremely uplifting to see all the participants and breast cancer survivors, some survivors announcing on their T shirts “18 years cancer free”.  Fabulous!

CIBC Run for the Cure 2014

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month!  My two sisters, Ozzy the dog, and myself are ready to run/walk/jog for the Cure this Sunday, October 5th! My other sister and our families are ready to cheer from the sidelines (virtually) – although we will get her over here too one of these days!

For a future without breast cancer! (Click for more info)

This weekend is a no-sewing weekend.  We hope you can cheer us on (virtually)!

Happy Sewing!
