A pillow was requested by a nice, not naughty, family member. So, I made a pillow for her (My Mom!). A few years ago, I made a pillow that was so well loved as to have holes and look shabby. Mom NEEDED it. Peach tried to claim it. Mom got the present and loved it!Continue reading “Gifting”

Happy Holidays, all. May peace reside within each of us, this year, this day, this moment. Life is short. Let’s all enjoy every minute of it. We have just returned from a holiday visit with family. We ate great food. Lasagna, salads, bread. Ham with all the sides. Nuts, a cheese ball. Shrimps. Hugs, family,Continue reading “Loving Goodness”

Quick and Dirty!
I have been playing around with making video on my iPhone. David made the music on my phone in Garage Band. iMovie on the iPhone does not have the ability to place captions, it is different than the same program for the home computer. It is fun to know I can do this and IContinue reading “Quick and Dirty!”

It turns out, the spay was incomplete and uterine tissue was left inside her body. This tissue is producing estrogen. Peach needs to go into heat again, so thatContinue reading “Continued Story.”
Stitching away the Blues
I am stitching away on this Breastplate. I guess this is called a running stitch, I just pick up a few threads and then continue to stitch, maintaining a similar length of stitch for each. It creates little dots on the back of the work, which is very pleasing to me. So far I haveContinue reading “Stitching away the Blues”
Great things are accomplished only by the perfection of minor details. Will you please cook a special meal for me on a Friday night in the very near future? (Ask Mom the date).

I love this program, I go once a week, I connect with other survivors in a predominantly physical but also, at times, emotional level (which works best for me, I can’t go deeply into the emotional side or breast cancerContinue reading “Round Up!”
