SoMe CoMForT

At a recent retreat I stitched "heart" shaped pillows for Breast Cancer Survivors. The pillows are used to relieve pressure & to give comfort to patients after surgery. Carol was kind enough to send me the pattern so these 6 pillows will go off to the Newcastle Mater Hospital (which specialises in "cancer" treatments in the Hunter Region) along with Carols three pillows.
I'll also take over the drainage bags donated during the month of May.
My THANKS goes to ALL the lovely ladies who donated!!!

And I'm off with hubby on a short road trip.
I'll be catching up with 2 lovely ladies... SHEZ & CHERYL on the weekend at a workshop... & all I can say is...

 "God heLP the LaDies NeaR ouR TaBLe"...

I think if I were to be on the next table, I would join you. The cushions and bags are great work, well done.

I had a bilateral mastectomy last year as I am at very high risk of cancer. There are also kind ladies who give these here in the UK and I received two cushions and two pretty bags for my drainage bags. I was so very grateful so please take this as a thank you from other ladies like me.
