The exhibit is up at Krannert Hall, the Fine Arts Department at the University of Evansville.
It was a beautiful sunny and windy day when all the scarves were rinsed outside on the clothes line (15 at a time).
After rinsing them off with the water hose they went into the washer and finally were ironed.
Last Sunday, all scarves were blessed by Fr. Tom.
My the Angel Hugs bring joy, smiles, hope, and many blessings to each one of the recipients.
Since I had planned for 144 scarves to be painted and we made 73 of them last Saturday – I decided to keep offering painting free scarves for Chemo Patients.
If you are currently in treatment for cancer and would like to forget about it just for a little while, let me know, paint a scarf for yourself for free. I can come to your house if necessary.
For everyone else I temporarily reduced the cost for the “Session of Giving” from $50 to $35. (Check it out under “Classes”) You get to paint one scarf for a chemo patient as well as one scarf for yourself. This offer will stand until all 144 scarves will have reached a chemo patient – 71 scarves to go and current cancer patients are getting priority
Last Saturday was finally the highly anticipated day for painting scarves for chemo patients. With the help of wonderful volunteers, who did not get a moments rest, we were able to get 73 silk scarves painted. This enormous project could only have been accomplished by many coming together for a common cause.
We got to experience a whole range of emotions, from laughter to tears, from joy to sadness, from fear and frustration to conquering the fear and experiencing what it means to “Let go, let God”.
I am sitting here looking at pictures of every single person and their scarf and I feel at awe, humbled and overjoyed by what these scarves will mean to the chemo patients. Thank you. And here are all the scarves
