We Support You, Today and Everyday!

Today is my day and I have to say that this is the most heart warming hop I ever seen.
We are supporting our ladies and everyone else who are dear to us that faces the challenges trying to fight this horrible disease.

I want to give Madame Samm a big thank you for this hop and supporting all those in style with her beautiful pattern.

I also want to let you know, the "We Support You" Friendship pattern is available for purchase for $ 12.00 by emailing Madame Samm directly at:
madamesamm@me.com 

And I want to give  Pat from Life the the Scrapatch a big thank you for all her hard work and support cheering us on.

Cancer has struck so many in our family.  My cousin was diagnosed with Breast Cancer 11 years ago, all three of her children shaved their hair off to support her.  She fought long and heard but unfortunately lost the battle a year later.


My father also was diagnosed with prostrate cancer a year after his retirement.  He was one of the lucky ones that went into remission and (knock on wood) still no sign of it returning.  The sad thing is while he was fighting, so was 2 of his brothers, they were not as lucky and we lost them both.

I feel very proud to be in this hop and to show my support.

On a lighter note.....Sally has been very busy quilting with her Aunt and they made a Friendship Quilt to show their support.


(I shrank the pattern but don't know by how much cause I drew it instead of using the printer.)

Then I made this, again shrinking the pattern a little..


I appliqued the bra and heart.  The hanger and bra straps, I embroidered. 
Perfect for my coffee in my room.


Ok, I think I bored you enough, ah, but don't quit yet.   Fill your coffee cup cause here are the links to others that are showing their Support today:






HAPPY QUILTING EVERYONE!!!

As a 1 year Breast Cancer survivor I am really enjoying seeing all the hard work and thought that everyone has put into the survivor projects. cancer runs in my family to. My grandmother had breast cancer, my baby sister had breast cancer, I had breast cancer my niece has stage 4 ovarian cancer , not to mention the various aunts and cousins with other types of cancers........It is hard walking around knowing you have these cancerous genes and wondering what next or who next will be diagnosed with something.
