    i received a squishy from blue chicken today.

    its beautiful fabric for the breast cancer quilts that i make.

    i was afraid that i wouldn't be able to make any more since DH has lost his job and my budget has been cut to zero.

    thank you so much Bluechicken it means the world to me and to all the women who suffer from this horrible cancer.

    did they say those cancers were a product of the chemo treatments?

    Klue do you only make for breast cancer awareness? My SIL passed away from cervical cancer last summer. I bought some lovely fabric in teals ....with the cancer awareness ribbons ect for cervical cancer awareness but I have been unable to bring myself to make the quilt. If this is something you would be interested in I would be happy to send it to you.

    i'm so sorry to hear about your sister - i understand completely that you've haven't been able to make a quilt.

    i kind of fell into the entire cancer quilt making thing. it started because i was going to support groups when my MIL and BIL both passed away.

    the word kind of spread thru all the support groups that i was a quilter and people started to ask me to make quilts for them or their loved ones.

    the most often requested is breast cancer but i have made some cervical quilts too.

    99.99% of the time i don't charge people for the quilt - i think in the last 6 years i've been paid a small fee on 2 quilts.

    i would be honored if you sent me the fabric but you might want to hold onto it for a little longer before you decide.

    the best thing i ever did to heal from the loss of my family was making these quilts.

    every day that i make the cancer quilts, the quilts for the battered woman's shelter, or the hospice care quilts - i feel like my loved ones live on - that i and the community still honor and value them.

    so maybe one day you can make a quilt and donate it to the hospital to ease anothers suffering.

    when i first started i cried often while making them but soon it passed and i was filled with nothing but loving memories.

    Klue - I just love the fabric with the ladies on it, I also have never seen that one before. I can't wait to see what you make with it.

    I'm sorry to hear about DH, you'll be in my prayers.

    My Mom and my SIL are both survivors.

    Klue: what beautiful fabric BlueChicken sent you and what a great thing you're doing. They say what goes around comes around so only good things can come your way.

    I understand about the job loss situation. It was a year in Nov that my DH lost his. He saw an opportunity and started his own business--but then they took away his unemployment compensation because he's "self-employed" even though there was a period of no income. Oh well, sorry to be long-winded but now his business is doing well and I'm sure with your DH's talents he'll find something even better than he had. (I just can't get used to him home 24/7--he used to spend 6-8 mos a year in China!!)
    Good luck-know that all the people on this QB are pulling for you guys.
    Peace-Jan

    Klue just read your heartwarming message... I am a survior of colon cancer....I will be cancer free for a year on 29 December. my little brother has throad cancer. Being a survivor I try and do things for the cancer society. I am a volunteer as are my son and daughter... We try and bring cancer awareness to people. we try and raise money for research and try and get people to have tests before it is too late. I was very lucky, even though I have a colostomy bag which is permanent, that I caught my cancer in time. I believe I was given time to do some good with the knowledge that I now have and bring positive thoughts and confort and understanding to others. Bless you all
