We all have many family members & friends that have experienced breast cancer. Due to cancer research, many of them thankfully are survivors! Best chances of survival are to catch it early. Please don’t be afraid of having screening done. It’s not fun, but it’s definitely not that bad. I’ve been having intrusive screening every year since my early 30’s because of family history. It hasn’t stopped me from going every year anyway! In my experience the staff are always very thoughtful & caring. If you’ve had a bad experience, go somewhere else! If you’re nervous, take a friend to wait with you if possible. Just get it done.
Would you like to make a sweet little quilt for a dear friend that may be going through treatments now or maybe is a breast or other cancer survivor?
Maybe you just want to make a cute little quilt?
I designed this “pink” quilt for those of us that don’t want the constant reminder of cancer, but instead, love.
Just a couple of Mini Dresden plates,
a few flowers and a few spools.
I enjoyed making this sweet little quilt &
Tamara did an awesome job quilting it!
I love the way the light catches all those beautiful feathers.
It’s available now on my website in both printed and PDF versions.
I also have a limited number of fabric kits available there too.
We believe breast cancer awareness is important all year,
and although we emphasize it in October
(Breast Cancer Awareness Month),
our continuous goal is to provide resources and awareness year-round.
