A Trip to the Breast Clinic

Yesterday my friend Lynne asked me to do her a favour. Could I go to the Breast clinic for her? I was a bit confused to say the least, as I really can't have a mammogram for her and I'm not sure I would if I could! Anyway she explained it was not to have a mammogram but to drop in a quilt block she has made, for a new quilt to go on display at the clinic. OK I could do that!

Lynne told me to have a look at a Kiwiana Quilt that is hanging on the wall while I was there. Lynne made the lizard block in this quilt.

It was a bit sunny so this photos not the best, but I wanted you to see it too. (Without having to have a mammogram!)

(see Lynne's Lizard block, its the green one in bottom right hand corner)

And a couple of close ups of blocks on the bottom row so you can see the superb quilting.


Now that was better than being squished, wasn't it. :-)

PS: I had a bit of a tidy up of the blogs side bar (right handside). I've added a list of Blogs, some new Websites, and links to Merchants. Check them out.

  2. Oh Leeann that looks so good. I have to confess, I only did one of the blocks (not two). The lizards are mine! Thanks for delivering the other block for the next quilt, and next time I need a mammogram I wonder if you would do me a favour...........

  3. I like the block Lynne has done too. There is another lovely quilt 'deeper' down in the clinic too; from memory I think it is a pink one made from breast cancer fabrics...

    To Raewyn I haven't had the "pleasure" of using the Breast Clinic services yet so I'll take your word for it!

  11. They should hang quilts like that next to the mammogram machines - then there would be something lovely to look at so getting squished wouldn't seem so bad. :-)

  17. thanks for sharing closeups so that we don't have to go have a mamogram to see it! LOL :) so glad that you didn't have to have one either... I've only had one when I was in my 20's as a baseline b/c 2 of my cousins both had breast cancer in their late 20's and oh my I hope I don't have to have another for a looooong time! OUCH!
