I’ve joined a “club” that some of my favorite people belong to but I’d hoped never to join . . . the Breast Cancer Club. My particular diagnosis involves 6 months of chemotherapy, then a mastectomy, then radiation. However, I have wonderful doctors and the best family/friend support group anyone could ever hope for, and I’m being showered daily with prayers and lovingkindness, so I’ve got this!
My blog will be on hiatus for awhile, but first I want to share something with you. A couple of years ago, my sweet granddaughter Ally drew the picture at the left for me while we were traveling somewhere in the car, and it’s been hanging on my wall ever since. Last night, she was stroking my hair, knowing that I’ll be losing it soon, and suddenly asked for a piece of white tape. A few minutes later, she showed me what she wanted it for . . . to change my crazy reddish hair into a chemo cap. Children are so perceptive and loving!
All shall be well! ♥
I’ve seen this saying on kitchen printables all over Pinterest, so I decided I should embroider it! ♥
I found this design as a free printable on View Along the Way (thank you, Kelly!) and decided I must embroider it! It’s based on Colossians 3:12-14 . . . and a good reminder to start every day with love. ♥
I found this inspiring embroidery design at Nana Company. (Click here for the free pattern . . . thank you, Amy!) It’s so pretty! Even more, its message expresses how I hope to live my life. ♥
Another blog that has amazing embroidery patterns to share is Wild Olive. This one was so much fun to make! I especially love how the words and the design cancel each other out. Click here for the free pattern . . . thank you, Mollie! ♥
Yes, it’s another Flamingo Toes hoop art pattern . . . a housewarming gift for a loved one who just bought a new cottage (and loves purple!). ♥
Have you checked out Flamingo Toes yet? Here is another piece of hoop art I made based on one of Bev’s fun embroidery projects. It’s sitting on an easel right beside my coffee pot where it brings a smile each morning. ♥ P.S. Bev also has a cute travel mug cozy with this same saying if you’re looking for a teacher gift!
