First, I’m working on Sweet on Ruffles from the Invisible Loom. It’s going well. I’m all cast on and ready to start decreasing. Here’s what it’ll look like:
Here’s mine at the last pic I took, different colours. Not as ruffly, more lacey:
Next, I am doing a traditional wingspan in a gorgeous dark blue and grayish pink, not started yet, for a woman who is donating the money to a friend, whose husband has cancer.
Here’s the yarn:
Beautiful blue and pink. I think I’m going to do 1, 2 3 in blue, 4 in pink, 5, 6, 7, in blue, 8 in pink and 9 and 10 in blue. She wants to wear it over her hair in temple. She’s a lovely religious lady and a NP at a very large hospital. Very special woman.
Then I’m working on a lace wingspan for my wonderful friend whose husband just went through surgery for cancer. I just got the pattern today, its wonderful. Here’s a few pics of what it’ll look like. I’m doing it with a bright, rainbow styled yarn, for hope.
And last but not least, for my mom’s co-worker, I went out and asked my religious friends if they knew any good Bible verses. I got an amazing response, and finally chose one and turned it into a pattern, for Edie. I wanted one that represented God’s love and strength, as she’s a strong woman with good odd’s. 70% for a 10 year remission and no recurrence of the cancer. For her type of cancer, stage 2 olfactory neuroblastoma that’s amazing. She makes her odds even better by her positive attitude, positive faith and being a lovely woman.
My moms work has done a lot of fundraising for her, and I think she deserves a gift. Edie is an amazingly strong woman, a nice woman, and a beautiful woman. The surgery went easier than expected and in 2 weeks, you couldn’t tell she had surgery. Some people need facial reconstruction. She had a bit of bruising around her eyes. She’s really wanting to get back to work, so I want this ready before she comes back to work. What an inspiring woman.
She loves natural colours, so I’m going to stitch this with a mixed thread, brown and green. I’m going to add a border with a cross, and here’s the text and Bible verse.
Cancer sucks, by the way. Anything I can do to help, though, I will. I made the pattern the other day.
This is from Corinthians 2. It was a longer verse, but I removed a bit.
I hope she loves it. She’s a lovely lady.
