Ovarian Cancer - Blog Hop!

Thanks for stopping in to read about the recent blog hop that I had the privilege  to participate in.  I found the swap on face book and many of my guild friends were sending out the challenge to get involved!

But I must say my swapping partner got the fuzzy side of the lolly pop!!  Here's what I sent to her, okay, it might be cute, but just wait till you see what she sent to me.  Here's what I made....

I'm not kidding when I tell you I searched for hours on Pinterest!!  Looking for the perfect swap "thing".  Found this pattern from an old email that I had been saving since June 6, 2014.  Stephanie, my swapping partner, lives in Maine and this is what she told me about herself:

   "I love to display mini's in my sewing room and around the house.  Not sure what I will do with this one.  I had cancer 15 years ago and feel blessed to have had these cancer free years.  I hope I remain healthy as there is a lot of fabric that I need to put to use".  She also wrote, "I like just about all colors and styles. I love animals and the outdoors and finding time to quilt!"

Doesn't she just sound like a sweetie?  Well, she is!  
AND an amazing quilter at that!!  

Would you like to see what I got in the mail?

Isn't that just the cutest thing you have ever seen???  AND I got some super great maple candy to boot!!  I lucked out!!  Just look how cute those little kitty eyes are, and can you believe the quilting on this???  My hubbie wanted to know if she did this on a 'regular' machine!  She is GOOD!!  Very, very good!!

AND!!  She is a SAINT!!!  She's  a teacher!!  (sidenote-in my book all teachers are saints, a job I could never do and am thankful to those who can and do!)

Stephanie, I too am happy that you have had 15 cancer free years and wish you many, many, many more.  Hugs, to you my new friend.

Okay, a shout out to
