I did kind of a kitchen themed gift for my secret sister and here is one of the potholders I made:
I found this pattern at my local quilt shop and the fabric is called My Farmhouse Kitchen. I had a lot of fun making this.
Now on to a special cause . . . one of my cyber quilting friends has asked me to pass the word around about Sunset Ridge Equestrian Center. http://www.sunsetridgeequestriancenter.com/
Sunset Ridge Equestrian Center is a place that has opened its doors to help children with special needs. My friend's daughter is a teacher at Granite Falls Elementary in Granite Falls, NC. Each year teachers take students horseback riding at Sunset Ridge. Horseback riding is a great way for these children to get a sense of independence along with better balance and coordination. They also learn responsibility through grooming the horses. All in all it is a great day for them! The barn fees are usually paid by donations and also by the Autism Fund. Sunset Ridge Equestrian is attempting to win a 25k grant that will benefit many students with disabilities in several counties. Diane DiReinzes, owner, wants to build an indoor riding facility so lessons can be given year round.
I am hoping that you will take a few minutes of your day to help make this dream come true. All you have to do is visit the web site sponsoring the grant, Love a Local Business, and vote for Sunset Ridge Equestrian Center. To vote, just click HERE
Business Name: Sunset Ridge Equestrian Center
Address: Taylorsville, NC
After you find Sunset Ridge, just cast your vote. Each and every vote matters so much, so I really hope you will take the time to help a business who supports helping children with special needs.
Thank you for sharing a part of your day with me. I hope that you have enjoyed National Quilt Month by sharing and making beautiful things.
Until next time . . .
