What's New?

Hi Folks ~
...been a couple of days since I've been able to really get up on this computer to do any work...

Last Saturday, I was fortunate to demonstrate Needlework at Oakland, as I had previously posted...

it was a wonderful turnout, with all proceeds & donations benefitting the
Nelson County Historical Society...

I took some pictures, but for some reason they came out so dark that they were unuseable...bummer.

I've been working on the Pocketful of Primitives book, gathering more photos, etc. to make it more 'meaty' of a book than I first intended...I'm hoping to have it published soon, so I can release it by the first of the New Year!

I've also been hand-quilting small doll quilts, too...I am in love with hand quilting...
since Felicia taught me the 'proper' way to get my corners & points lined up...but they are still extremely primitive & naieve-looking...
I think I'll be coming out with some patterns for doll quilts soon too!

Speaking of Quilting...
I have been thinking about this for a while too...you all are aware of the AIDS Quilt that was created in 2000 to benefit the AIDS Research Foundation...they raised millions of dollars.

Well, How about a Breast Cancer Quilt?

"Memories in Cloth"

We could all create a 12" (with 1/4" seam allowance) square quilt block...
now, if you don't quilt, you can still contribute by creating your block in one of the following mediums:

Rug Hooking
Cross Stitch

I would ask you to send the blocks to me, to then have professionally put-together,
and the finished quilt would then be auctioned to raise monies for
Breast Cancer Research...

My sister Jo-ene is in stage 4 of her cancer...still undergoing treatment.
I know families that have been touched & affected by Breast Cancer.
So many unanswered questions...

Are you up to the challenge of making a simple quilt block,
that best reflects your feelings about Breast Cancer
& the millions of lives it touches?

if so, give me a holler at not4got@aol.com... and we'll get this thing rolling...

I think alot of Good can come from something as simple as Memories in Cloth...

Blessed be~

What a wonderful idea!! I've had several very close friends touched by breast cancer. I'd certainly like to punch or hook a square for the quilt.
Let us know the deadline.
Hugs to you and yours and all the critters!!

Your book is sounding even more wonderful!

You know I'm in on the quilt. As you know, my older sister has Stage 1 breast cancer & will go next week for a mastectomy.
Do you have a date in mind for when you'll want them all to you?

Thanks my friend...Cindy

Lori~ My mother inlaw's name was Nancy Ann Butler. She passed away in August 2004 though.

Lori, this sounds like a wonderful idea! It would be after the first of the year before I could get my block put together and sent out to you. I am getting ready to start working on a Delectable Mountain Lap quilt.

Oh yes, I would love to take part! Now all I have to do is decide WHICH textile medium to use!
