And the winner of the PINK quilt is.....

and the amazing thing about the winner is she has nearly the same name as my late mother, Sally Johnston. When I first opened the email from Susan G. Komen saying I had a donation and read her name, Sally Johnson, my heart leapt a little. My mom was just 55 when she passed away after a long battle with many medical issues that started when I was 15 with lung cancer, watching her go through this horrible battle is what gave me the passion to join together with my best friend to do these walks. Each and every step I take in training, fundraising and walking I think of my mom and what things would have been like without this horrible disease.

A special thanks to each and everyone of you who participated in this raffle, together we raised $405 for a cure!!! A HUGE thank you to Heather of Olive and Ollie for sacrificing her time, talents and fabric to make this beautiful quilt, without her none of this would have been possible.

Special hugs to each of you who donated and shared your stories of loss and survival! I will be thinking of all of you as we walk our 60 miles this year.

Save the Tatas, Win a Pretty in Pink Quilt

When I first saw this amazing quilt by Heather Jones of Olive and Ollie I fell in love instantly. I contacted Heather and asked her if she would be willing to create something similar to raffle off to help me raise funds for the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer 3 Day. Heather graciously accepted the challenge and has completely outdone herself.

See I told you so!

Isn't the detail just amazing?

And here are some views of the back

If you would like a chance to win Heather's quilt all you have to do is donate $10 to my 3 Day Account and comment below letting me know that you have done so. For each $10 you donate you get 1 raffle ticket for a chance to win a quilt. The raffle will end on 7/21/11 at midnight PST. The winner will be chosen at random and posted on 7/22/11. If I can get one of my children to participate the winner will be chosen via video drawing, if not I will use, so either way it will be completely random!

You all must get over to Heather's Etsy shop and check out all the amazing handmade children's items she has in store! I want one of everything!

It would also be greatly appreciated if you could blog/twitter/facebook about the raffle to help raise funds to save the tatas!!
