Quilts for breast cancer

Im back from another weekend away. I was back down in Birmingham for a hen weekend. Had a good time but all that driving was tiring! Now i have a busy week ahead at work. I need to go to Edinburgh tomorrow for a conference. On Thursday night and Friday i will be away down south, just outside London. Can't wait for saturday to relax all day!! LOL it's only Monday and im dreaming of saturday already :)

Here is an update on my Dear Diary SAL piece. Im still working away on Hannah Purington. I really love this one! Laura has just completed her 2nd chart, check out her blog to see it, it's looking lovely! She is miles ahead of me!! The light is bad / non-existant here this morning so not a great picture
I have just joined the yahoo group Quilts for breast cancer. They are looking for stitchers to stitch squares for quilts if anyone is interested? Also anyone can request a lap quilt for anyone they know who is suffering from Breast Cancer or who is a survivor of the desease and would like to receive a quilt. Ive cut back in exchanges recently and thought this was a better way for me to spend my stitching time.

Light, what is that? LOL. It's so dark here that the streetlights are still on (at 1 in the afternoon).

Thanks for the Yahoo group contact information.

Hey Cheryl,
Can you request a quilt for me? Since you are a member. Her name is Hope Ethington, I'll send you her address by email. She had her surgery today, I talked to her late this evening, she's hanging in there. She still has 12 weeks to chemo to do!
Let me know.
