We Support You Blog Hop coming...

Madam Samm at Sew We Quilt  and Pat Broe from Life in the Scrapatch are hosting a blog hop January 29-February 11 2015.  This blog hop is to support friends and family who are battling CANCER.  
 Madam Samm has created a lovely pattern for you to make and Pat will cheer us onto our goal to make your variation of this lovely quilt.  This is aimed specifically at Breast Cancer, my dear Aunt battled this disease in the 1970's and had a occurrence later in life.  She is still doing battle and holding her own.  I also had at least three co-workers who have successfully waged their battles.  This first quilt is about 2.5 feet by 3 feet.  But you may choose what size and presentation you wish.  Maybe a pillow or a tote bag.  Be creative with what you do.
 You could make a wall hanging, or a larger quilt to keep them warm.  The pattern is free to participants along with an alphabet to use for the person or persons names you embroider.

I Support You or We Support You along with a hanger with an initial are suggested.  Maybe with some supportive words or phrases significant to that person.

My aunt is/was quite a golfer and when I spoke with her I would end the conversation saying "Keep On Swinging" to encourage her to do her post-operative exercises.
Madam Samm used gingham and ruffles but you may choose to do something different.  I'm toying with ideas even now. So please Support Our Ladies and participate in this blog hop by contacting Pat.

She will require the following from you
