It's not a wash yet!

It's a rainy, soggy day, so I may not be able to deliver the fall foliage I promised.  Our spirits are not dampened though. We will still make our little road trip in hopes of a ray of sunshine here or there. There is great shopping in Silverton, so that is our goal.

Just a quick update on SAL participants.
Eri in Japan sent me this photo of her 12 blocks.  I guess I will get started on those setting instructions.
And Linda at Stray Stitches is to the halfway point.
And I have a confession.  I have been trying for those blog giveaways again. I have come to abhor the requirement that I have to become a follower, blog about it and write a separate comment for each action; but I can't stop myself.  I am guilty of using that ploy myself   Besides, I understand the giveaway hosts' motivation.  Blogs with large numbers of followers are receiving free GO cutters from Accuquilt as a marketing scheme.  And it is working.  We have to visit their website and choose which dies we want.  Genius!
So pardon the following transgression, but Alderwood Quilts is having a GO giveaway! Now it is your turn to go over and enter! And I will go enter my comment about this post.  Hope they don't read it!

My new friend in Australia, Linda C of Quilts in the Barn, has a wonderful fundraising exhibition for breast cancer coming soon. 
The ladies of the Secret Sewing Sisterhood made this quilt to auction to raise funds and it is stunning! With Linda's help, I plan to buy several raffle tickets. Wish me luck! 
This group of women does some amazing work.  I highly suggest you follow their blog for it is truly inspirational!
The rain is subsiding and DH is returning from the hardware store, so off I go.  Hopefully, tomorrow I will have that fall foliage to share.
