From A - Random Saturday

I was up at 5:00 a.m. this morning to participate in the Ride to Conquer Cancer. It is a more than 200km bike ride over two days. Both my husband and I were able to raise more than $2,500.00 each to participate in this year's ride.

I am a the very definition of "novice cyclist". I didn't even own bike shorts until 2 days ago but we have been training for the past few months and it is finally time to see whether our training has paid off.

That might be the worst photo of me ever taken (keep in mind that it's 5:00 a.m. and I'm not much of a morning person) but here you go!

Sewing wise, I have been slowly picking away at my hand-pieced star sampler quilt. It still doesn't look like much. But I am planning to bring it along on the Ride in order to infuse it with a few of the memories from this amazing challenge. Hopefully I'll have a second finished block to share with you soon!

These are pieces for my lone star block. Basically a miniature version of this quilt.

Hope you have a great weekend and please send a few "no rain" vibes my way if you have a chance...especially since we're sleeping in a tent tonight.
