Please Help and Lend a "Hand"

Hello there! 
Last year I participated in a project to raise money for breast cancer which is organized by Jeanette Shanigan.   A lovely heart-working dedicated woman, to say the least. 

 

Jeanette collects donated squares which have been beaded using a certain theme/motif and then creates fantastic 'quilts' which are then auctioned off at the Bead & Button Show each year. 


The 2010 Breast Cancer Quilt(s) featured the turtle with the idea of "Remember the turtle; persistence, not speed, counts; a cure for breast cancer will be found."

 The 2010 project auction raised $2,865 ! ! 

If you'd like to see the finished quilts, here's the link:  http://shanigansbeadshenanigans.homestead.com/BCQuilts10.html


It was such a fun project, I want to do it again this year; won't you join me?  The theme this year is the Hand....hmmm, can't wait to get started on that!
