Breast Cancer Awareness Mug Rugs Project

 Call to all my sewing face book friends. I am looking for donations of breast cancer awareness fabric scraps & pink & white Or creme fabric scraps,& pink & white threads & scraps of quilt batting And or binding scraps . I want to begin a project to make mug rugs for the entire staff at a local Breast Care Center. Which I can not afford to buy all the supplies for this large endeavor. This is a division of the hospital where ladies go for Diagnostic Mammograms, Breast Ultrasounds, all types of Breast biopsies and radiation. They assit in the diagnosis process of breast cancer and breast diseases. They all so have Nurse Navigators; that follow all the breast cancer patients and help with the process from diagnosis to treatment and assure that irregardless of income or insurance that each patient receives quality treatment and care and provides access to all services needed. This project is very near and dear to my heart. This is an awesome team of ladies. If you could assist please let me know. No scrap donation is too small each piece will be used for this project. If you can donate please email  me for the shipping address Shipping will be going to South Carolina, USA.  Thanks everyone I really appreciate any  help to get this effort off the ground. I had originally posted this . But some how in trying to post today I totally lost this one...I've got to relearn how to do this blogging all over again.

Mailbox Surprise

A Mailbox Holding A Surprise
  Boy was I surprised today to open my mailbox to discover that my friend Kathy Gordon  who blogs over at  Kwilty Pleasures had sent me a lovely Ziploc bag full of white and pink scraps  to start on my project.   This was crammed full of goodies she shared with me. Kathy is a sweetheart. If you have never visited her over their, please go give her some love.  I also received another small  scrap bag gift from a new online sewing friend named Angie. Pinks left over from some girly projects. Thank you tremendously ladies.  I finished my husbands patriotic mug rug today. This one is for him to take to the office. The stripes are not  very straight. But oh well all he is gonna do is stain it with coffee anyway I
