Okay, I am nervous

My Mom was diagnosed with Breast Cancer in 2004. She has gone through hell with this. She had a bilateral mastectomy since it was in both breasts, spent all winter on Chemotherapy and finally got her reconstruction surgeries done this past year.

She found 2 new lumps on her chest and goes in for biopsies today. I am nervous for her. I know she is scared, I would be freaking out. I am hoping that we know something in the next week. I know that she is ready to get this all behind her now. They say that you aren't considered a "survivor" until you are cancer-free for 5 years.

Here are some pieces that I have stitched (not yet finished) in the past couple of months:

Designer: 4 My Boys

Designer: Lizzie*Kate
The sales of this design benefit Hurricane Katrina Relief

Designer: Prairie Schooler (freebie from website)

And here is a sneak peek at what should be done by the end of the weekend:

I am working on #3 of 3. I will sew them into pillows (fabric is under the PS freebie above) and send them to each set of Grandparents-to-be. I will send them all on the same day, via Priority Mail so that they will hopefully get them on the same day the following week. We aren't going to include a card or you think that they will get the hint? I graphed out the design myself using Lizzie*Kate's alphabet from her "First Christmas" pattern. The middle part has 2 bumblebees tumbling around...really cute when stitched!

This is a picture of the "family & friends photo wall" that I was complaining about so much in the last post:

P.S. Thanks, Jo! :)

You picture wall looks great! Contrats on all the finishes. I've been in such a stitching slump lately. Not good when you have a RR that needs to get mailed. :(

My thoughs are with your mom right now. I hope that everything turns out ok.
