Quilting Gallery Newsletter – Issue #5 – October 2008
Welcome to the fifth issue of the Quilting Gallery Newsletter.
I can’t believe it’s almost the middle of October, and the Canadian Thanksgiving is this weekend, and then we vote on Tuesday. It sure has been a whirlwind of activity around here.
October is filled with great things for me too, including a Kaleidoscope of Colour lecture by Kaffe Fassett next week, participation in the 2008 Victoria Quilts Canada Quilt-A-Thon later in the month, and the anticipated arrival of my second niece (due October 24th). What an exciting month!
I’d like to congratulate the three winners of the Lazy Days of Summer Photo Contest and thank everyone for their entries. A special thanks also goes to Lynn for her beautiful donation of 12 hand-dyed fabrics. The three winners:
The Quilting Gallery site has been nominated for the Best Hobby Blog in the Blogger’s Choice Awards. Please vote for me! It will only take a couple of minutes. I think a site about all about Quilting deserves to win, don’t you? Thanks!
I hope you will enjoy this edition of the Quilting Gallery Newsletter. It’s jam packed with lots of goodies (including a new Contest), great sites to visit and some funny humour at the end.
If you have any suggestions, comments or questions, I want to hear from you! Send me an email at email@example.com and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can.

Two great places worth visiting:
Cure a Cough
John was a clerk in a small drugstore but he was not much of a salesman. He could never find the item the customer wanted. Bob, the owner, had had about enough and warned John that the next sale he missed would be his last.
Just then a man came in coughing and he asked John for their best cough syrup. Try as he might John could not find the cough syrup. Remembering Bob’s warning he sold the man a box of laxatives and told him to take it all at once. The customer did as John said and then walked outside and leaned against a lamp post.
Bob had seen the whole thing and came over to ask John what had transpired.
"He wanted something for his cough but I couldn’t find the cough syrup. I substituted laxatives and told him to take it all at once," John explained.
"Laxatives won’t cure a cough!" Bob shouted angrily.
"Sure it will," John said, pointing at the man leaning on the lamp post.
"Look at him. He’s afraid to cough."
