Breast Cancer Awareness

My dear friend Ann Siggers put together something amazing! She asked the ladies of her online christian CROCHET group to crochet pink ribbons so they can be donated to breast cancer centers to given out during this month. They all have been blocked and have pins attached.

Ann also asked me if I would film the pattern she wrote so that even those that can't follow a pattern can help
100's of ribbons were made and sent to Ann and 100's more were given out through out the U.S

I was really touched that Ann used her hobby ( which is no longer as easy for her because of wrist issues, not that she would ever let that stop her) her faith, and her reach online to be able to give to so many woman fighting for their lives! *Speaking of which I know you hear this every where but make sure you do SELF BREAST EXAMS and go in for check ups! Don't be a Chump check for a Lump! * To me Ann is an amazing example of what a strong christian woman looks like. She doesn't try to cram her faith down anyone's throat she just leads by example. She take her talents and passions and does something good and honorable with them.

Do you feeling a calling? Doyou want to combine passions and do something bigger than yourself? GO for it never hurts to try. Reach out and see what you can do because if you don't who will? It doesn't have to be large even making a beanie and giving it to a homeless man to making stuff for children in shelters or orphanages makes a huge difference!

I've been quiet on here lately due to midterms and a yarn bomb project for a say no to drugs campaign at my son's school. I am looking forward to all the pictures I will be able to share with you next week after it's all done! 


  1. Mary thank you so very much for this write up. You also inspire me with your passion for our faith, our craft and for helping those that need you. You are such a blessing.

Turn and *sl to ch2, ch3,2dc, ch2,3dc. *Turn and repeat * repeat everything in this step 3 more times. Cut thread and weave in ends at the ends of the sides. Bottom of the cross When you get to the last side repeat the * section 2 more times for a total of 4 shells for the bottom and 2 shells for the sides not including the center. On the top of the cross attach yarn and chain 26, skip the first 5 and sl to the first chain. Then I added a tassel.
