I don't know what prompted me to do this - possibly a whole slew of pink flowery patterns in a cross stitch mag I've got.  Well.  I'm not that subtle.  So here's my tip of the hat to all those brave women who fight breast cancer, and my not so subtle wag of the finger to the rest of us who should do our self exams every month.

I blatently stole this from the wonderful komen.org site and used a pink transfer pencil to iron it onto muslin.  I'm considering making all of them and either making them into individual pillows, or putting them into a long row-type wall hanging.  Might make a nice donation to a women's clinic, perhaps?

Thanks, everyone!

I'd like to see other projects in honor of the month!  Maybe a Subversive-style cross stitch with "Boobies Rock!" or something?

You know, honestly, that would be really cool to go into a women's clinic and see that hanging on the wall!! It's still telling you what you should do, but there's a comforting homeyness to it. That is so cool!

This is really well executed, and I like the idea of it.  Public health embroidery!

I love this...it's so smart!  I would definately like to see a whole series in a clinic. 

Currently taking a hiatus from swapping.  Sad

I've always wondered what disease cured ham had.

LOL - what a great idea!  Grin

I looked at your other embroidery works on you flickr site, and your stitching is SO neat!  Not a dud stitch at all.

I agree with the comment those would look awesome in a clinic. Maybe you could make some to donate...or maybe to a local group to auction?

I've never embroidered, so I don't know how much time or money is involved.

I really like it though. It would look great in a matted frame.

I looked at komen.org, but I couldn't figure out where you got the picture from.  Can you provide a link?

There's two places, actually.  I thought I had gotten this from the BSE cards on the komen.org site here: http://www.komen.org/intradoc-cgi/idc_cgi_isapi.dll?IdcService=SS_GET_PAGE&ssDocName=DownloadBSECards, but, that shower square is actually from this site, which claims it got it from the komen.org site:  http://www.southcoast.org/breast/bse.html

Have fun!
