Breast Cancer Block

Busy, Busy, Busy around here. Definitely no blogging on Mondays and Tuesdays in the foreseeable future, and Wednesday (like today), may be really brief.


So here is my start on my block for the Annual Breast Cancer Raffle in the USA. Wow! A chance to have your work seen in a quilt at the Omaha Retreat. How many years has it been going now??? Eight????

(The real reason I am doing it is to raise funds for Breast Cancer research, and to help crazypatchers attend that Retreat, but what the heck - it is nice to send something over there to be seen too).

So, the question is - what do you think I am going to do in that blank space? I do have a definite plan, and there is a squishie out there for the most accurate (you may have to be detailed!) guess as to what I am up to.

The squishie will include tatting .....

(In creative writing, this is called "prefiguring". Throw out hints and suck 'em in early. Any takers????)

Gotta run!

I would guess that you are a doing a white tatting motif that you sew onto a dark background. Then you will reverse appliqué the crazy block onto it. Julia

I'm picking a heart...that was the hard bit. red chicken scratch in the centre with white tatting around the outside.

Hmm, two close, three not. I like this - it comes up with all sorts of ideas for me to try.

Hopefully, if I get stitching time tonight, all will be revealed tomorrow.

Common Breast Cancer Myths

The first myth pertaining to this disease is that it only affects women.

Second myth that is associated with this disease is that if one has found a lump during an examination, it is cancer.

Third is that it is solely hereditary

The next myth associated with breast cancer is downright ridiculous. Would you believe, that in this day and age, some individuals still think that breast cancer is contagious?

Conversely, some individuals foolishly believe that breast size determines whether or not one gets cancer.

Finally, another myth that is associated with this disease is that it only affects older people. This is not so. Although the chance of getting breast cancer increases with age, women as young as 18 have been diagnosed with the disease.
