A Pink Scarf and More Leaves

 If you are visiting from Vicki's blog

Blogging is a wonderful thing,
one of the benefits is the
friendships you make.
I remember one of my first
visits to Vicki's blog......
those beautiful nests
she creates, caught my eye.
I love birds and birdnests,
so it was natural for me to 
often return, to see what
Vicki had been up to.

 As I visited, I left comments
and soon our friendship 
Vicki offered me the 
opportunity to create 
some mini crazy quilts
for a nest she was creating
to benefit a children's 
hospital wing.
I was honored to
help out.
 Vicki is now working on
a nest to benefit
breast cancer research.
She again asked a 
few friends to join 
in on the fun.
I am creating
leaves that will
be worked into the
nest's design.
 There is also a way
for you to become 
Vicki has a 
where you have
the opportunity
to send a pink
scarf that will 
serve as a gift of
love to someone
battling breast cancer.
 Above are a few of the 
leaves I have created
for Vicki, around
60 so far!
 I think of those that
will be touched by the
scarves and the nests
as I stitch.
 Maybe, somehow those thoughts
will give someone else
the courage
the strength
to face another day.
May the scarves
 serve as a reminder
to each recipient,
we are praying for them
they are loved.
Love to all,

Deb you are very loving and generous to make such beautiful leaves for Vicki's nests. Your pink scarf is gorgeous and will give lots of love to the recipient. I am still knitting (very slowly) my pink scarf to donate. Doing for others is so rewarding. Creative Hearts are Happy Hearts Dear...

I'm not surprised when your two generous hearts met that something magnificent occurred. You two have great synergy and all of your leaves are wonderful. They will indeed be a great addition to Vicki's nests. Love the scarf too and the last pic of the pink ribbon.
I can see your New Year is full of heart. Love to you dear Deb, Susan
