Happy Friday, friends. I hope you all had a nice week.
I have joined a challenge hosted by Lola Nova. It is simply a stitched page of where you are personally, or artistically, well...it can be anything really. I found it as an encouragement to get going on something, anything as long as it is forcing me to get my heart and thoughts together in an artistic way.
My journal will be on thankfulness. The first page was a given for me. It is an abstract paper (magazine) piecing of the view from my front porch her at Little House.
The only actual 'stitching' is the card stock begin attached to the felt page. The paper is the medium that I ended up being led to use.
The thankfulness part of this is very deep in my heart. I will share it with you now. I didn't tell anyone about this at the time, but a year ago last October when they found I had cervical cancer, the only thing I heard in that phone call was 'stage 4'. So, when I packed up the car and headed for Portland for the real diagnosis at Compass Cancer center, I feared the worse.
I stood on the porch and looked at that view and felt that I would not be coming back and that would be the last time I saw this.
As it turned out, the actual cancer was stage 1 and a good prognosis...So thankful, I am. Very thankful indeed for this view.
I thank the Lord for never leaving my side.
I am joining the rest of the group over at Lola Nova's.
Have a happy weekend. xo
