~~2x2 Square Update~~

Good morning everyone and a happy Friday to all. I have an update on the Pink Artist Project I recently participated in this past February. An art doll was being created using 2x2 squares for her gown. Painters, beaders, stitchers,quilters and so many other gifted artist participated.....you could create your square any way you were so inspired. When the doll was finished she was to be auctioned/ raffled off with all proceeds benefiting the Susan G. Komen Foundation for the cure. Well 180 squares were submitted (this is mine) and "Love Squared" was created....and here she is! She is awesome and I so proud to have been part of this wonderful and worthwhile project. Click on any picture for a close up.
~~~~~~~~~~She is 40" in height.~~~~~~~~~
Look at these beautiful and amazing 2x2 squares......Monica Magness, her creator, took the squares and just stitched them randomly.....it couldn't be more beautiful.
So, so pretty...I see my square! Do you???
My message is always the same.....love yourself enough to get your yearly exam....early detection is key.....

Do you have plans for the weekend? Both days are going to be gorgeous here. Saturday Lisa and I are having an adventure and then Sunday is the WX Peddlers Faire...this is the best. We've missed only one market day in nearly three years....rain, wind, fog, just can't keep us away. Whatever your weekend plans enjoy. Until we meet again.....hugs, and warm regards, Linda

The doll is beautiful and just an example of how many talented artist there are in blog land. Each and every square is a treasure. It's true, it does take a village. Congratulations to all the those who came together to create this lovely lady.

Hi Linda, I couldn't find an email addy, so hope it is okay to get in touch with you here. I was wondering, I noticed that this last week you bought a neat silhouette of a Dutch sailing scene from Back Through Time. I am wondering, well first if you bought it to resell it? And if not - might you consider, please, please, please - scanning the picture and sending it to me? I will gladly pay - just let me know. I have a Dutch background, and that is so pretty, I would love to have something like that. A copy would be just fine! Well, I hope you don't mind me asking!

Thanks, Diane (Vruwink) Carlson, from Michigan. I think my email address shows up on here, I hope it does anyway!
