Two Years Ago...
I am so happy to have finally completed the stitching for This Too Shall Pass Scissors Keep. Every year Lois Mouriski Bear (Elegant Stitch) makes another part of this series available. I decided I would not let myself purchase the other pieces until I completed this one. This piece was released two years ago so I am a little behind the times. I know I got one of the last kits available for the scissors keep so I am glad to see the next piece, a pinkeep, is still available. The sales of this series goes to benefit breast cancer organizations. The chart calls for personalizing with your monogram and two significate dates. I chose the year 2004 which was the year I had surgery for cancer, and 2006 because I've made it to the two year marker this year without any recurrence. How thankful I am every time I think about it (very often). Mine was not breast cancer but it was a cancer particular to women. Ladies, I implore you, if you have not had a gynecological visit in the past year, please make an appointment today. It's a mistake to avoid it.
So anyway... on with the finishing so I can celebrate and treat myself to the next kit!
