I want to introduce you to a little friend of mine. She came to live with me this past week. I adopted her from another friend of mine who couldn't keep her anymore cause she had too many little friends like her. Her name is Hilda Highpockets and she now lives at my house and I have introduced to alot of new little friends here.
I think she is so cute, I just couldn't pass her up. She is sitting in front of a little quilt that I also acquired from my friend. She made this little redwork quilt and I thought it was really cute so I brought it home with me too. After all, Hilda had to have something familiar to her so she would be comfortable the first couple of days. Well, to say the least, she has gotten very comfortable in my home and says she never wants to leave. She has made so many new friends here.
Look at the redwork blocks, aren't they cute.
Here are some heart shaped pillows I made this week. My quilting group and my sewing group make pillows like this and we donate them to the Breast Resource Center at Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas. Every breast cancer patient that has surgery there gets one of these or something like it. We have made alot of these over the years and they always call me for more. The patients really appreciate someone thinking of them as they go through this tough time in their lives.
Ok, I posted these to ask you or remind you to please punch the pink button on the right of the screen to click on the Breast Cancer site. Each click is a free donation to someone that cannot afford a mammogram. This site is trying to get 200 clicks this month and they will make a sizeable donation to breast cancer research. Please take a moment and click on the pink button. Thanks for helping....
