These are my last 5 quilts for Rosie's Calico Cupboard this year. I make a commitment each year to quilt 12 quilts for Camp Reach for the Sky, an American Cancer Society camp for children with cancer. I'm so happy to be able to be a part of this!
Last night my 16 year old daughter and I spent an interesting evening. After our chiropractor appointment, we headed to Applebees for a quick dinner. Then we went to the movies to see "An Inconvenient Truth". All I knew about the movie was that it was about global warming and that Al Gore had something to do with it. I didn't realize that it was his entire PowerPoint presentation on the subject, interspersed with how he became involved with global warming and how it has affected his life. I found the movie to be quite fascinating, once I got past Al Gore's voice narrating it...he is rather monotone! The pictures he showed of the glaciers and how they've melted over the years, the increase in CO2 emissions and the increase in the earth's temperature are quite remarkable and the picture of our planet's future that he paints is not a pretty one. I'm sure there are many things in the film that could be debated, but the photos from now compared to those from even 20 or 30 years ago can not be denied. There are some absolutely gorgeous pictures of the glaciers, storms and icebergs that are worth the price of admission. I'd highly recommend it if you were thinking about going to see it. It is quite an eye-opener.
