I've written several posts on the subject, my favorite one was Boob Sandwich, where I got so many incredible comments and very personal, emotional private emails from many of you. Most of you know about the walk I did last year and again this August. And you've already seen this hoop remembrance I stitched up with our team logo designed by Berene.
There was a lot of interest in the stitchery pattern, and since the lovely Bari J. posted it on We Love French Knots the other day, the orders are rolling in! Do you know a crafty cancer survivor who would love this in her sewing space? Or a recently diagnosed friend who could use a colourful, handmade-with-love symbol to give her strength and hope? Breast cancer is hard, but embroidery is easy - just chain stitch, back stitch and satin stitch (long, filling in stitches).
You can buy the pattern here for a nominal fee, 100% of which will be donated to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation to further the already ground-breaking research that is being done in our country. Visit Berene's Happy Sew Lucky blog, read this beautiful post featuring incredible artwork by her SurvivorMom and help end breast cancer.
The girls thank you.
