      Sun and Sunflowers! 2 of my favorite things this time of year. Yeah, I know it's only mid April and I know it will still snow, but this time of year everything is so fresh, so renewed and as usual, I jumped the gun and cleaned out the pool. Of course I enlisted the willing help of my 8 year old twin granddaughters. What fun we had! Water fights, splashing, getting totally wet, then jumping on the trampoline to dry off and warm up, then back inside to a cup of hot cocoa! Shhhhhh! Don't tell their mother!

      Another Starmaker 6 Pattern.

      News from Ami Simms and the Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative

      There are 27 little quilts up for auction at www.AlzQuilts.org right now and all profits go to fund Alzheimer research. These are little treasures, none larger than 9" x 12", and they would look great on your wall, propped up on a table, or framed. Some are traditional, others "arty." Themes range from serious to goofy with everything in between. The choice is yours. These are the Priority: Alzheimer's Quilts, named for the urgent need for research funding and for the envelope in which they are shipped to their new owners. Each quilt must fit in a USPS cardboard priority mailer.

      The Priority: Alzheimer's Quilts project is part of Ami Simms' "Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative," a three-year commitment to raising awareness and funding research. It includes a 50-quilt traveling exhibit that will be seen by over 146,000 people in the first year alone. These quilts must be Alzheimer related. Do you have a quilt inside waiting to come out? See the prospectus at:


      Submission deadline is June 5, 2006.

      For more information visit the Alzheimer Art Quilt Initiative at www.AlzQuilts.org.
