Pass It On! Sunshine Squishies for Kaaren!

Shelley at Red Quilts has an awesome idea and I wish to help spread the word and I hope you will too!

Many of us have come to know Kaaren from The Painted Quilt for her monthly free patterns she designs for us. We also know about Kaaren's fight against cancer that she has openly shared with us through her blog. Kaaren's radiation and chemo treatments have started this week. You can read Kaaren's post here.

Shelley proposes that we rally together and send cards with little "squishies" to make Kaaren's days a bit brighter. You can read Shelley's blog post for further details.

Let's rally together on this one! Please post and spread word! I will share Kaaren's snail mail address with you if you need it.

Mary, I would love to send Kaaren a card. Please send me her address. Going through treatments must be difficult enough. I'm sure being away from home is going to make it even more challenging.

I'd love to have Kaaren's address so I can send her a card! I did make a quilt block for her when Allie made her comfort quilts.

Would you please share her address with me? What a great idea!

Magnolia Bay Quilts said...

Oh, what a great idea. If you wouldn't mind sharing her address, I would love to send her something. (And I really haven't forgotten about something else I need to send -- I've just been a little sidetracked. Okay, a lot sidetracked. And probably a little crazy.)

Cyndi said...

Chat soon!

XOXO,
