Breast Cancer don't like it

Hope this help mine anxiety.

My 350 post is not what I thought it would be about, but my first post was about beaded square for breast cancer so below is mine for 2014. 

Get a Mammogram they do find things early. So after 2 mammograms and a needle biopsy in a month time. I was diagnosed with a early form of breast cancer Stage 0, DCIS on Nov. 22, 2013. Saw breast surgeon on Dec 4, 2013. Lumpectomy is planned for Jan. 2, 2014 an outpatient procedure. Possibility no radiation treatment. 

 I am being treated a Barnes in St. Louis, MO at the Siteman Cancer Center.

Here is a square for the 2014 quilt. This was on my to do list before I found out. The Bead-It-Forward theme for 2014 is "Turn the tide on breast cancer," so squares should depict ocean/aquatic/beach motifs.

Easter Eggs

Here is the link to the pattern Mini Easter Eggs. I used different size of yarn and thread. I need to make more eggs I still have some more color to make. I need to find some dark fiberfill. 

 I started making the eggs before I saw this poem.

Jelly Bean Rainbow

Red is for the blood He gave,

Green is for the grass He made,

Yellow is for the sun so bright,

Orange is for the edge of night,

Black is for the sins that were made,

White is for the grace He gave.

Purple is for the hour of sorrow,

Pink is for the new tomorrow.

A bag full of jelly beans,

Colorful and sweet,

Is a Prayer…Is a Promise…Is an Easter treat!
