This was another block of the month from our LQS. It's a Pennsylvania Dutch "Distelfink" Sampler in wool. Each shape and color has a meaning. Example: the star mean protection, hope, energy, harmony...the heart means love and the leaves under the heart means love will grow...plus the colors all have a meaning, blue is peace, calmness, brown is mother earth, strength, green is growth and fertility, yellow is health, red is emotions, passion and black is protection and a blender. It was a fun class and interesting to learn about their customs while picking out our colors. many of you probably all ready know this but it was new to me.
Just a quick update since many of you have asked: I started my radiation yesterday after another speed bumb. My CT scan for tattooing and mapping found another "mass" so I had to wait until I could get into the specialist to find out if it was a new turmor or scarring from the previous one. A week later they found that is was not a new tumor and just post-op scarring. It was a little frightening because it would have meant another surgery and more bone removal...Not something I wanted to live thru again....So Thank the Lord...I am on a downhill slide. One rad treatment down...24 to go over the next 5 weeks...bummer that it's a 3 hr round trip but we do what we have to do. Happy Friday to all.....
