Hey all!

My dear friend Anna at Life Sew Crafty is having an awesome blog hop every two weeks on Saturdays May through July - with a very worthy cause in mind.

The history:
Anna's mother-in-law, Tina, was diagnosed with breast cancer in December 2012. She’s been through radiation, chemo, and several surgeries since then. All of this has resulted in enormous amounts of medical bills, despite decent insurance. She’s such an amazing woman, smiling through all of the treatments and staying upbeat. She is a medical technician and gives back to her patients when her medical issues don’t keep her out of work.
The blog hop:
Anna is planning on hosting a blog hop called “For Pinks Sakes” every two weeks on Saturday from May through July. The participants will each make a pink block (specifications below). 
There are two ways to participate.
  1. If you have a blog, you can participate in Anna's Blog Hop by making a pink block (specifications below), posting about the block on your scheduled day, including a list of the other participants in the hop, a link to Anna's mother-in-law's donation page, and a link back to Anna's site. If you'd like to participate this way, please go to Anna's site {click HERE} to sign up to hop!
  2. Don't have a blog, or are too busy to participate in the hop? Okay! No problem! If you still want to support this amazing cause, you can!
    1. Send ME your pink block(s), and I'll send them on to Anna for you! Email me {here} with a pic of your finished block, and I'll give you my mailing address. I'll request that your block be sent to me by July 15, 2014.
    2. And/or you can donate to Tina's cause here (every penny helps!):

Pink Block:

It can be any design (original or not), in pinks, from low volume to high, any size over 4” square. Anna will incorporate it into a quilt (or quilts!) that she plans to donate to the Lemmen-Holton Cancer Pavilion, in Grand Rapids, MI, where Tina has had all of her treatments.
Let's make a bunch of these pretty pink blocks for a fantastic cause, quilters! 
Let me know if you have any questions, and thank you so much for considering this worthy cause.
