Pink Artist Project Count-Down

It's official...my little pink wall hanging is one of the many prizes to be awarded on October 16 for contributors to the Pink Artist Project.

Monica updated the list of prizes on her blog. Of course, the main attraction is the Love Squared doll, who is quilted, beaded and embellished beyond belief. Her skirt is made from 2-inch squares donated by 180 artists.

All you have to do is make a donation via Paypal to the Susan B. Komen Breast Cancer fund by clicking on the sidebar on Monica's blog. For every $10 donation, you earn two chances to win a prize. The list now includes jewelry, purses, artwork, journals, and lots of other hand-made items donated by artists.

If you don't use Paypal, she has her address on the sidebar to mail money order donations. Don't forget, October 15 is the deadline to be part of the Pink Artist Drawing!

In other news, my guild sold every quilt that was auctioned off last Saturday at the Heritage Days event. They raised over $6000 through the quilt auction, and still have the "opportunity" quilt proceeds to add to the total when all the tickets have been sold. So, "Ring of Peace" has a new home. I don't know how much it sold for, but I hope it has a happy new home---and won't be used as a pot holder or hot pad! LOL! I did put instructions on the label to avoid water and direct sunlight.
