These are NOT my Hooters

Full disclosure up front for those of you who hi-grade blogs for photos and pass over the details in the text: I DIDN'T MAKE THESE.

But I had to show them to you because they are so stinkin' cute!! This handsome duo live on Mayne Island now, at Rebecca's house. Jo Ann and Andrea made them as hostess gifts for our retreat last weekend. Lest you think all I brought was a container of granola, I did sew up 6 cloth napkins for Rebecca made out of Day of the Dead skull fabric (she's got a think for skulls...and owls...and schnauzers).

The girls used a pattern by Abigail Patner Glassenberg from the book Softies Only a Mother Could Love. Jo Ann had some recycled, felted wool sweaters to use. I think my favorite part are their ears. So cute!

I think these hooters are very happy and excited to be all nested down in their new habitat!

And just in case you were wondering about my hooters, I recently received news that all is normal. That wasn't so bad. First of many boob sandwiches complete without incident. The nice thing about our system here in B.C. is that the Cancer Agency sends your results not only to your doctor, but directly to your home. I like that. If you are a woman over 40 and you haven't booked your annual mammogram for 2011, pick up the phone already!

Congratulations on the test results! For all of us, it is sometimes worrisome..most are normal. BUT SO IMPORTANT for those few that are not..so I agree everybody should get right out there and line up. Thanks for increasing awareness!

Nice hooters. It had to be said :)

I'm glad yours are good and well! I've been concerned recently too. I've had several friends diagnosed in the past year and ALL of them were younger than me. So scary!
