Think Pink

Monica over at Girl Gone Thread Wild is doing a community art project to raise money for the Susan G. Komen Foundation. She is collecting 2"x2" art squares which she will stitch into an art doll to be auctioned off through Ebay later this year.
I'm excited to be participating. These two squares are on their way to Monica today. Appropriate since a friend of mine (the mom of one of my son's best friends) starts chemo today for breast cancer.
The backgrounds of these squares are pieces of my hand dyed paper towels. The first one sports a photo of yours truly - in my younger days! The second one is my great (great??) grandmother - she's the lady on the right. Wish I knew who the
other lady was - probably a friend. I love these old pictures and it was a lot of fun to use them (or copies of them!) in my art. I may venture down this path again. If you're interested in Monica's project, please check out her blog (link above).
