Isn't Karen's work lovely!Thank you Zoë (Garden Hopping and The Journey)...This was a total surprise! It was an honor to support your fund raising efforts on behalf of the MacMillan Cancer Support! Breast cancer touches us all....Unfortunately, it is a closer than six degrees for many of us. Our dear friend Carrie is a survivor, as our many co-workers and acquaintances. Too many women and their families are impacted by this scourge. The most significant risk factors for breast cancer are gender (being a woman) and age (growing older). But the good news is that as of 2007, there are about 2.5 million American women and about 2 million UK breast cancer survivors! My Canadian friends, I couldn't find the Canadian stats...just that you have excellent survival rates!
Thank you Zoë for sharing your journey.
Thank you Karen (An Artist's Garden) for donating your delightful embroidery in handcrafted paper, silk and organza to encourage donations! I didn't need the incentive, but I won't refuse the prize! It is lovely and I know exactly where in my office I shall hang it. Won't it look lovely with a small plaque explaining it's history.
Warmest wishes for a wonderful week of holiday celebration~~ Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah.
