Stitch a Booby Bird.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month in Australia, and Jenny of Elefantz has designed a wonderful stitchery for one of the sewing groups in Townsville and anyone else who would love to stitch this gorgeous design.



Lucky for me I popped around to her place the other day for a catch up and coffee and when I  saw what Jenny was stitching I just couldn't resist sewing up this cute little booby birdie in her smart bra also !

I chose to make mine into a cushion, choosing fabrics (very special) that were a gift to me from my DD. I couldn't have picked a better colour thread as it matched the fabric perfectly.





Not to be a nag but I have included a couple of links for information for Breast Cancer Awareness - Queensland Government, and National Breast Cancer Foundation and also the McGrath Foundation that funds Breast Care Nurses in communities across Australia.


Why not pop on over to any of these sites and find out how we can help ourselves or help others.

Jane McGrath, co-founder of the McGrath Foundation once said, 

" Breast cancer doesn't care how old you are, where you live, whether you're a career woman or a mother. Breast cancer is a disease that currently affects one in eight Australian women of all ages and backgrounds.
Together, we can make a difference."

  7. Your pillow looks just gorgeous Heather. I am going to stitch Jennys booby bird for our milker who, at 47, has just been diagnosed with breast cancer. I am thinking she might like it made into a tote bag. I love the fabrics you have used in your pillow too. Have a lovely Weekend x x x
