Pink Scarf Project -- the Spring Edition!

I never dreamed your hearts would be so full,
that your scarves would fill my home  
every basket, every box, every space ~~ 


I never dreamed that so many of you would want to give~
Eight months into this amazing project,
and still,
they come.
~~~~~
I'm so very proud to share with you
the latest editions to the
Pink Scarf Project.  
~~
Here they are --

To date
the Pink Scarf Project has collected
almost 130 scarves.
~~
These beautiful scarves have arrived from
all over the world!
(US, Canada, France, Australia, Germany,Africa,and South America)
~~~
Already I have almost 20 scarves to
photograph for the upcoming summer edition!
I am in awe of the amazing 
generosity of so many~
xoxo

One of the most wonderful things about blogging
has been my ability to make so many
 new and precious
 friends. 
~~
On our recent trip to Vegas I was able to meet 10 year old
Ava Ballagh and her Grandmother Jan.  Ava wanted to participate in the project so that she could honor her Grandmother who had recently passed away from Breast Cancer. Her Grandma Jan taught her to knit and together both Ava and Jan have contributed greatly to this project. You can see the precious note that sweet Ava wrote to me here in the post for the WINTER edition of the Pink Scarf Project.
~
(To Ava and Jan -- meeting you was so very special for me. Ava you are a beautiful young lady and I am so proud of your
generous spirit. Let's always be friends!)
xoxo
~~
Those two beautiful ladies on the end are my friends Tanya and Jackie -- both devoted supporters of this project.
  These talented ladies are friends and fellow bloggers
but this was my first opportunity to meet them. 
We had a wonderful chat over lunch-- they even let my husband tag along! 
~~
(To Jackie and Tanya -- I hope this was only the first of many opportunities for us to meet and have special times together. You guys totally rock! 
I can see some serious good times ahead in our future!!!)
xoxo


Coming up next ---
grab your hiking boots and some chocolate!  I'm taking you on some incredible adventures -- hiking in and around Flagstaff, Sedona, and the Grand Canyon.  See you soon!

Love and hugs to you all~
Vicki

Vicki, you are such a special person to have started this project with all the other projects you have going. Not to mention a "growing family" and a busy job, all the travel and all the many many gifts you share. You are truly a special person and I admire all you do.

I admire all the scarves, yarn and lovely things others have donated to this project. That is lovely and so nice. I have a niece going through chemo now, she is cancer free now but these nice things mean so much and you do not realize it until you are there or it has come into your family.

Keep up the good work. You are so blessed.

Stunning array of soft subtle shades of pink, so very nice to see. What a lot of sweat and tears have gone into these creations. Great ideas for another maybe!

Tomorrow May 20, Sophie and I are acknowledging my Mom on her 92nd birthday! Her favourite colour was PINK. Drop by for some vintage pics of yesteryear!

We had so much fun!

Vicki, your photos are so beautiful! I have over 30 scarves here now...I just received one from Arizona last week! I will get a post out soon with pics. This is such a great project! How nice that you could meet some of the blog scarf senders! Such sweet and touching stories. Have a wonderful week!

Mosaic Magpie said...

What a stunning group of scarves. So many scarves from such loving stitchers. I enjoyed reading the notes/card/tags that were attached to some of the scarves. We each know why we chose to create a scarf, but when you see so many others participating it really warms your heart. Such a fantastic project you thought of girlie!
