Today's post is brought to you by the colour PINK!


Today is all about pink! Kind of fitting since it is Valentine's day today (not that my husband will remember though!!!)

First of all I want to show you my some of my card designs that were in this month's World of Cross Stitching magazine...


The World of Cross Stitching issue 200
Immediate Media Co.

Nice shades of pink. And yes, that's me in the corner!

And now for some more pink....



I know there are always lots of Pink breast cancer awareness projects going on, but this one is slightly different as it's not about raising money for research or treatment, it is specifically for those women who are currently fighting breast cancer. 

 Simply stated - it has only one goal~ 
 To bring a smile to the face of a woman who is fighting her own battle with breast cancer. 


The guidelines are simple (so I'm hoping that some of you may be able to join in with this wonderful project)....
...just make or purchase a pink scarf in any style or design that you wish as long as it's predominately pink. You can find all the details here.  Please do have a look and if you can do anything to help out, that would be fantastic.

Now you know that my knitting skills are severely limited but I did manage to make a few fancy looking scarves for Christmas presents. Since there are only six stitches and just plain knitting to make this scarf, it's do-able for even the most novice knitters, which is why I was able to make them! Anyway, I remembered that this yarn was available in....you've guessed it....PINK! So this is my start for the Pink Scarf Project...


Not much to see at the moment, but I'm hoping to get it finished over the weekend. I will be adding a cross stitch card to go along with the pink scarf.

I urge you to try and join in with this project and  see if you can bring a smile to a stranger who is fighting such a courageous battle.



Until next time...happy stitching!

Rhona
