She “gets” you, really Gets you. When I was first diagnosed with breast cancer the first thing that came to mind was, “I can’t even plant a tree and watch it grow”. I love gardening and nature. So this spring after completing my treatment we went to the nursery and I picked out my “cancer tree”. A red maple. They came out a few weeks later and planted it in our back yard. So my cancer tree has become very special to me. So I was surprised, but then again not…when Tammy bought me a necklace with a tree of life on it for Christmas. (Actually it’s a tree of knowledge, but we’re calling it the tree of life)
She understands the importance of my little Charlie Brown tree. I think she, Mickey and my mom are the only ones who Truly understand just how important the symbolism. I think they even get my obsession with the Virgin Mary too! No, I’m not Catholic, but I’m so drawn to icons of Her. I bought myself a necklace with Mary on it.
This is the pendant I made for her. I only got one pic of her wearing it and she’d kill me if I posted it. (her eyes are closed)
I made my parents a smaller version of my Sunflower rug.
I thought I could finish it the night before, but I wanted to have a little energy for Christmas day.
And I MUST show you our little Santa Jimmie Dean! That’s his heating pad he’s standing on too. No, he’s not spoiled.
Tomorrow is hooking at the Brentwood Library @5:00 pm. Stop by if you can!
