Hello, and welcome!
I doubt there are many women who have access to the Internet who are not aware that the whole month of October, every year, is devoted to Breast Cancer Awareness......and if there are, they are certainly not Bloggers......hahaaa!
Those of you who have been comin' around here for a while will know I am a breast cancer survivor, and feel extremely blessed.....but there are very many more women....and men.....who are still courageously fighting their own battles.
In honour of these people, and to show my solidarity with their cause, I am offering a little something to help raise awareness of the reality of breast cancer, and of the need for funding for the on-going research........research that WILL find a CURE.
Many of you know that I have a wonderfully talented daughter, Leigh-Anne, who has a Facebook page that showcases the handcrafted quilts that she lovingly makes.....she also makes and sells all kinds of bags, baby taggies, cot quilts, etc..........and you can feast your eyes on some of her makes at
and tell her I sent you.......you'll be made very welcome!
Anyway, the point is, I asked Leigh-Anne to create a lovely tote that I could offer as BLOG CANDY for all my wonderful Followers.I told her I wanted something that would be large enough and substantial enough to hold any crafty goodies that the winner wanted to put in it. She readily agreed, and promptly ordered some beautiful fabric.....she doesn't really need an excuse...hahaaa!......and gave me the honour of making the final choice.
I love what she created and will have a hard time parting with it..........
My photos....as usual....are certainly not the best, and don't do this lovely tote justice........trust me when I tell you it is beautiful.......the fabric is 100% cotton and there is a layer of soft wadding that helps to give shape and substance........
Isn't this fabric gorgeous?
And it's fully reversible.....bonus!
Don't be too disappointed if you don't win it.......Leigh-Anne is selling these for £20.00 at
http://www.facebook.com/sewdelight? £5.00 from each sale will be donated to
Okey-dokey.......how does this little beauty end up in your hot little
Easy-peasy.........make sure you are a Follower and leave me a comment. But not just any comment.......
My life was saved because I had a routine mammogram........I want you to tell me ....honestly......that you get your breasts checked.....whether that be by having a scan, mammogram, doctor, or self-check........and if you haven't, promise me that you will.
You will have until Wednesday 17th October to take part ......I will then randomly choose a name and post the winner on Thursday 18th October.
Another thing.....please don't become a Follower if you are only here for the candy........I have lovely, warm relationships with many of my Followers and I value them.....please don't spoil it for me....thank you.
I'll put a reminder at the top of each post, and you can leave a comment on any post between now and next Wednesday to be in with a chance.......Good Luck!
