Pretty in Pink

A box arrived in yesterday's post all the way from Susan in Chicago containing my SBEBB Quaker Exchange. It was just like Christmas, opening up the box to see what Susan had sent - a gorgeously stitched biscornu, some fabric and thread, a magnet and postcard from Chicago, and some chocolates, yum. Susan told me in her card that this was the the first biscornu she had made and I think she has done a terrific job of it, not only of the stitching but the finishing is just perfect :)

Thanks again Susan for such a lovely exchange :)

Here is a pic of a recent finish, Glenn's anniversary gift.. I've decided, after trying to find a suitable frame in town and not having any luck, to send this up to my friend J to be framed. Please excuse the wrinkles.

Wedding Row by Bent Creek stitched on 32ct Summer Khaki Blefast using GAST and Weeks threads.

I did show it to Glenn the other night and he was rather impressed with it :)

And as promised a pic or two from our friends's wedding on Monday:

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.
