A couple of days ago I came across this post by my fellow blogger and friend Juliana Deen. It was so touching to me because every older woman on both sides of my family has either passed away from breast cancer or is a survivor. My own mother is a survivor. I have even spoken to an oncologist about caring for myself because of this strong family history. The oncologist was very encouraging and said to me that awareness, monthly self exams and yearly mammograms are the best for early detection.
Please read through this post and I encourage you to get your pattern of Pink Pot of Hope through BasketWeavingSupplies.com The author of this pattern is Jennifer Rhodes.
I have spoken, through written word, to both Juliana and Jennifer. Juliana has agreed to let me use her post and Jennifer is very happy for us to get the word out about her basket pattern.
I've ordered my pattern and am anxious to weave the basket.
Thank you Julie for the use of your post and thank you Jenn for creating a basket pattern that is helping such a worthy cause.
With love and blessings,
Nancy's added note: If you order just a pattern from BasketWeavingSupplies.com, their computer doesn't distinguish patterns only when it comes to s/h. You are initially charged $5, but they refunded me $3.
Pink Pot of Hope - by Juliana Deen - Deen Homestead Basketry
Last week I discovered three basket weaving groups on Facebook after becoming friends with Claudia Hopkins .
One of them, called "Addicted to Basket Weaving", is moderated by Jennifer Rhodes, of Basket Weaving Supplies.
It was there that I first saw her basket design called The Pink Pot of Hope.
