The Pink Artist Doll "Love Squared" Reveal


The Doll is finished! Her name, "Love Squared". She wears 180 two inch squares. 182 artist total created her. She is just under 40" tall and weighs 6 lbs 2 ounces. Monica said it beautifully "She smiles because already she knows love and is able to give love unconditionally. To many she is a symbol of hope. She stands for courage and was built by a community of givers."

In case you missed my earlier post about The Pink Artist Doll let me catch you up on what I am talking about. Monica Magness of Girl Gone Thread Wild had an idea to make a doll to help raise money for breast cancer research. She asked for artists to make two 2" squares. I answered the call and sent in two squares. I did this for my sister-in-laws mother Gail and all the other beautiful ladies in the world who have had to fight cancer. Love Squared has been sent into Art Doll Quarterly, who is going to do an article on the doll. The doll will be auctioned off on eBay at a later date. The money raised will go to Susan G. Komen For The Cure. I will keep you updated on what is going on with doll as I find out. :-)

Below are the squares that I made for the doll. Feel like playing I spy? LOL! You can see one of my squares on both bottom row close up pictures. The square that is shown has one of my favorite quotes, "Beautiful people cause beautiful things to happen".





Last but certainly not least I want to thank Monica Magness for thinking up such a wonderful idea and seeing it through to the end. You did a beautiful job Monica! Hats off to you!!!
