Pink Artist challenge...........

.........well, here's my beaded 2" square finished and ready to send Monica Magness to include with over one hundred other artists who are donating
these little blocks. Monica has made a yard-tall doll that's gorgeous, and she's going to sew all these little squares onto the doll or her skirt; then auction the doll (and her little quilt made from left-over squares!) off on
ebay!!! All proceeds will go to research thru the Susan Komen Breast Cancer Foundation. Thank you, MM, for your artistry and time for bringing this project together!
My breast cancer block is not meant to be "pretty". When first invited to make a block for this idea, I started out with something frilly and pink and girly and beautiful. But breast cancer is NONE of these things........it's ugly,
horrible, sick, deathly and miserable to those of us who have had it. So here's my take on it, girls. I hope this doll raises LOTS of money for the Komen foundation!

Wow Phyllis... it's a powerful piece. I love that you represented those that have had a breast removed due to cancer. Even though it's a small piece, it evokes lots of emotion. Great job!

Hi Phyllis,
Your pink square certainly makes a statement..You did a great job.
BTW I keep looking for the "Logo"
No luck yet?

Great breast cancer block. You did a wonderful job. There's no mistaking the statement.

Phyllis - this is a GORGEOUS little piece of art. Maggie's right, it truly does make a very powerful statement and is a thought provoking piece. Great job.

This piece touched me in ways that all the 'pretty' pieces never did...and has me going in a totally different direction for my beaded square.
