New Finish

Well it's a busy time of year for most folks. I'm trying just to keep up with normal everyday things. I'm down to only having five chemo treatments left to complete. But inherently the cumulative effects of the chemo are proving to slow me way down. But it could be worse, so I won't complain!

I just finished a little something for a friend that is also going through chemotherapy. The difference is she has to spend 5 days in the hospital every month for her treatment as she has chemo 24 hours a day for those 5 days. Since she is hooked up to an IV and has to drag around the IV pole, she keeps her sense of humor about her and has named her IV pole Enriquè Suavè. She decorates the pole according to the current holiday or season for fun. She is an amazing woman who is strong and beautiful!

I've got a few more projects I really want to complete before Christmas. Time is ticking rapidly and I'm not sure if I can get them all done, but I'm gonna try.

Happy Stitching!  =)

How very thoughtful to create that little piece for Laurie! Wishing you all the best in your remaining five treatments and may 2014 bring you a return to good health!
