Exchanges Galore

Its been a busy few days this week playing catching up at work -its great to have time off for public holidays but you still have to fit everything in :) Then yesterday I was out of town for the day attending a regional Disability Services Provider meeting. The two good things about that was not only did I get to drop by a favourite LNS of mine but I also got to top by and see my dear friend J who's recently had a major operation and is now on the mend :)

On Tuesday I received a wonderful parcel from Andrea. Andrea had my name for the SBEBB Autumn exchange. Andrea stitched a needleroll using a Heart In Hand pattern(which I'd only just recently been eyeing on on their website). Andrea told me in her card, how could she NOT stitch a needleroll for me, lol.

stitched and finished just fabulously.

Andrea totally spoilt me by sending some other cool treats - a chart, some neat kitty fabric, buttons, ribbon, a notebook and a little book on Hugs. Thanks so much Andrea, I love everything! And it was also really nice of you to include an anniversary card for Glenn and I :)

Cathy emailed me to say the autumn exchange I'd put together for her had arrived. This is San Man Originals Sharing the Letter freebie, a freebie I'd been wanting to stitch for awhile now, and finished into a pinkeep. For some reason I can't get the my pic to upload right now but you can see it here on Cathy's blog

and my SBEBB Quaker exchange has also now arrived safely to Elisabeth in France

I stitched the Workbasket's May freebie finished into a notepad holder. I found the limited edition Tim Tam's while I was in Australia so couldn't resist sending some to Elisabeth as well.

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.
