Welcome! My name is Deanne Eisenman and I am the owner and designer for Snuggles Quilts. This is my second year taking part in By Annie’s #SewPink Initiative. (Here is my project from last year, Courage) I was excited to take part again and create a new project for breast cancer awareness. I have two family members that are breast Cancer survivors so this is a cause close to my heart.
My favorite type of pattern I create now is a mini wool applique on fabric wall hanging. I call these patterns my “Snugg-lets”. They are no larger than 14 x 16″. They are quick and easy projects that can be done in a few days! So, since it’s my favorite, I decided to make my project for this year’s #SewPink Initiative a Snugg-let! Here it is:
This is a 12 1/2 x 14 1/2″ mini wall hanging. The background is a pieced pink ribbon surrounded by a pieced geese border. I call this pattern: Snugg-let Hope & Love. This is a physical pattern but it is also available at my shop as a PDF download!
I chose the saying that I embroidered on the wall hanging, “From hope & love comes courage & strength”, because I feel that with the love and hope from family and friends, anything is possible. Their hope and love feeds your courage and strength in the battle.
Here are a few photos from creating my pattern:
Because of my family history, I am vigilant myself when it comes to exams and tests for early detection. There have been great advancements over the years like 3D mammograms and MRI guided biopsies (both of which I have had). These advancements could not be made without funds raised from initiatives like this. I am grateful to all who work in this field of study to hopefully someday find a cure.
1 in 8 women in their lifetime will be diagnosed with breast cancer…. and you do not have to have a strong family history to be one of those women. That is why I urge you to do the self-exams and make that yearly mammogram visit at the minimum.
Now for the fun…… comment below and be entered in a drawing for a free pattern for Snugg-let Hope & Love and my Courage pattern from last year! There will also be a special 30% off coupon for any wool kit in my shop. The drawing will be on Monday, November 2nd. So you have plenty of time to enter!
