Kick in the Pants

My community never fails to amaze with me,
 with how they will come together for you!

When we lost a young member to a car accident...
plans were made.
Last night was a benefit for the family.
Keegan's passions, were his love for the "boots" and Hawaii.
It's a western kinda town, so this quilt design from "Red Boot Quilt Company", seemed to be the perfect choice for a quilt for the auction.
Never in my wildest dreams, did I imagine that it would bring $500 for the family, 
as it came straight from my scrap bins!
Oh my goodness, I know it's got a new loving home too.
Thank you to the Ackerman's and everyone who came to support the family.
Your gone way too soon Keegan, but we promise to take care of your family for you!

til next time...
Keep on Stitchin'
