The recipient. She's the most amazing person I've ever known.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Putting the fabric on the forms was difficult. I would recommend a lot of patience!
Been there.... this is very special; it's always a "good time" to enjoy each day and love every minute!!
Thank you. You're so right. We must treasure the 'time' we have, no matter how little. Whether you fought, or your loved one did, I pray there was a victory. Incidentally, my mom's name is Jana. :)
Ahhh.... well, 8 years this March for me! Hope you're Mom is doing well... they have advanced so much with research now!! I did needlepoint or something felt every chemo. Kept me focused, and someone always enjoyed watching me do it :) Besides, my hair never got in the way lol
My mom is now just over 3 years clear of the second go around with it. We hold our breath at every 6 month check up. They have advanced so much in treatment and research in such a short amount of time. We can only hope for further advancement, and someday very soon, the cure. Mom's chemo treatments were short enough that she didn't need a project, though I believe she sat and made her famous lists. :) I can see how keeping your hands busy would be a theraputic way to deal with those treatments. So glad you got through it! I tried to get mom to keep the hair shorter (and undyed :) ) after it started to grow back, but she didn't go for it. lol
lol my hair came back pretty gray (course now I'm a two time Gramma) and just thinking today, wow, hi-lights soon!! I know the worry... and hope that my granddaughter never has to learn that word :) Sew away, we go!!! I have so many projects... making a "coffee matt" for my sister's birthday today!
Mom's a three-time Granna - and still won't give up the brown! LOL Good luck on the coffee matt, and hop you post pics of it later!
I am almost 2 years out. (June) and I love your project. The embroidery is certainly therapy. Thanks for sharing your beautiful project. I hope your mother and all the other survivors continue on in health.
Congratulations! And thank you for the kind words. I hope you continue in your health too!
