Pink Friday


I'm wearing my jeans to work today, as are nearly all my co-workers. We all pay five dollars for the privilege, and all proceeds go toward breast cancer treatment. We also have had an office bake sale going on all week. My co-workers and I donated baked goods, and everyone in the office (and sometimes people from other floors in our building, too) buy the goodies, all proceeds going toward breast cancer treatment.

If I'd been diagnosed with breast cancer earlier this year and saw the staff at the treatment center dancing with pink gloves like in the video below, that sure would have lifted my spirits!


I didn't realize how long it had been since I did a Pink Friday. The pink gloves inspired me!

You may do whatever you'd like with hand motifs you make from this pattern, but you may not sell or republish the pattern. Thanks, and enjoy!
