Help for Sister Margaret Mary 2021

Sister is a long time member of the Sheepishly Sharing Community and we’ve helped with her music program fundraisers for many years. However, 2020 will be a very different year for her. She has been diagnosed with Stage 4 Uterine Cancer and has left the convent to live in Louisville, KY where she will be receiving her treatments. She’s currently living on disability and is supplementing with craft sales.

UPDATE 2-27-2021: Sister is finished with her chemo and the results are not what we had hoped. She now has a mass in her stomach called carcinoid carcinoma BUT the good news is she’s waiting to see if she’s eligible for a clinical trial! See address below for sending well wishes and cards of encouragement!

She’s given me a “wish list” to share with our community in hopes of gathering supplies. (She uses my Santa Scarf and Snake Scarf patterns and also a teddy bear from eyelash yarn among other things!)

Sister’s Wish List

  • Red Heart Super Saver Cherry Red #319
  • Red Heart Super Saver White #311
  • Red Heart Super Saver Black #312
  • Red Heart Super Saver Variegated (not stripes) 5 ounce skeins in any fun colors for snake scarves
  • Eyelash Yarn 100 gram skeins (She needs 2 skeins to make 1 teddy bear brown, tan, or fun colors)
  • Hobby Lobby I Love this Yarn Light Peach #230
  • 25 mm sew-on wiggly eyes
  • Scrap quilting material for no-sew bows (She needs to make 20 x 9″ strips)
  • Fiber Fill
  • Any finished craft projects. It does not have to be all Christmas as she can sell throughout the year. Any type of craft is welcome!

Ship or mail your donations to:
Denise Mary Perez
7006 Harvest Gold Way, Apt 8
Louisville, KY 40291

Cards of encouragement would be very welcome!

  1. Thank you everyone for supporting me!

    I am crocheting cowl/infinity scarves to sell.

    I am in need of the following:

    1. Lion Brand Brand Wool Ease Thick & Quick, Lion Brand Brand Homespun in “elegant” colors.
    2. decorative buttons for embellishments 25mm and larger
    3. brooches with bling

  2. Dear Sister Denise, I just sent you through Amazon red heart red yarn, for making Santa scarves, variegated yarn for snake scarves, and eyelash yarn for teddy bear. Margaret has inspired me sooo much with her videos about the Addi. So here in the Austin area, Lago Vista, we are making tons of hats and scarves for needy children through the Christ Child Society and our parish’s St. Vincent de Paul .
    God bless you Sister and also Margaret for inspiring me!
