Well the "In Your Words" blog hop is officially over. I am kinda sad...I was so enjoying everyone's projects. I added several ideas to my list.
I so appreciate all of your kind words and I hope that I managed to answer everyone's emails. Forgive me if I missed you...but I read every one. Some made me laugh, some made me cry, but each one was a gift.
I promised a "smile" bag to one lucky person and that person is Joyce Carter from Demorest, Georgia! Joyce I have sent you an e-mail requesting your snail mail address.
I wanted to send a gift to everyone who left me a comment but I can't. However, some of you touched my heart in a big way. You shared your pain, your joys, your memories and your prayers with me and I am so grateful.
Three of you asked me where you could get the panel....well, guess what! Brenda at Mamas Quilt Shop still had 3 of those panels in the store and I bought them all.
So Sharon at Vrooman's Quilts,
if you haven't visited this inspiring blog, jump on over there. I promise you will come away with smiles and ideas.
Sandra in Stratford, Ontario, doesn't list any blog, but wrote:
Bless you Martha, I had Cancer seven years ago and had a double mastectomy I was 63 and my daughter was having my first Grandchild. My daughter has diabetes and she had just lost one baby at 27 weeks so I had to help her and never mind this pesky old cancer. Fortunately I didn't need Chemo. My daughter was in hospital for 5 months and them had our little Jonah who is our light and he was born blind. I needed to be alive for both of them so here I am 7 years later still cancer free. I had my days that were hard but God was always behind me. We moved to live closer to our daughter and Grandson because she had to go on dialysis and I look after Jonah three days a week and I am thankful that I am able to and I pray that the cancer won't come back but I will to deal with it if it does. I think attitude and faith has a lot to do with how cancer goes and yours is beautiful. I love your panel and what you wrote after about cancer. Thanks for sharing your story with us. I live in Canada and have never seen this panel is there anywhere i could find it on line.
