Grieving with Gratitude from Cheryl Lynch Quilts

Mini projects have worked out the best for be.  Small, quick to finish and without much planning.
My DIL's mother is undergoing chemo for breast cancer.  I wanted to make her something to let her know I was thinking of her and rooting for her wellness. A wonderful friend of mine (Thank you Jeanette) suggested I make these small pillows to protect the sensitive area by the port when wearing a seat belt.  

I found a few places with sketchy directions.  There were even some for sale on Etsy.  I thought I would share my easy peasy way of ...

Update ~ Post Surgery from Tea Rose Home

I can't believe it has already been two weeks since my double mastectomy. I wouldn't say it has been a smooth and easy recovery, but I guess it's not that horrible either. In fact, I am still seeing lots of blessings these past two weeks.

The picture I posted here with the pink ribbons are a surprise from my wonderful neighbors. I don't really know exactly who was involved, but they were not only tied to the pillars and on the mailbox of our home, they are in our entire neighborhood and streets. How amazing is ...

$5 Friday: Pink Ribbon E2E from Wasatch Quilting

Breast Cancer affects nearly every one of us in some way or another. Most of us know someone, whether it’s an aunt, mother, cousin, sister, or friend, who has battled breast cancer. In honor of Breast Cancer awareness month, our $5 Friday is the “Pink Ribbon” E2E, which was released in 2012.

$5 Friday


About 1 in 8 women born today in the United States will get breast cancer at some point.  Of course, making a difference is more complicated than raising awareness like were trying to do.  However, if wearing a bracelet, sporting ...

Saturday's Song: Tell Your Heart To Beat Again Stash Report. from Faith, Trust and Breast Cancer

Saturday's Song:  Tell Your Heart To Beat Again
November 26, 2014.  
"You have a tumor in your breast.  It's really deep in there.  You need a good surgeon because this type of tumor cannot be handled by just any surgeon."

My heart stopped beating for a season.

November 13, 2015.
After 6 months of chemotherapy and 42 days of radiation, I reached the last day of treatment!  
As I drove home, I erroneously believed I would immediately return to the person I was before.

It's been 2 1/2 years and I still live with the effects ...

Still Stitching #6. Finished Panel Quilts. Book Date. from Faith, Trust and Breast Cancer

Still Stitching #6

Still Stitching #5 Still Stitching #7

I'm so sorry, but I just realized I skipped the 6th part in this series, so here it is!  

As you may remember, in my 5th Still Stitching post we looked at how our current point of study can look like within.  But how did I put it into action?  I leaned on my faith as well as past growing experiences.  

I learned that:  “No response is a response.”  I didn’t have to outwardly respond to events.  I could sit still and simply pray.  I learned to give my ...

Saturday's Song: Still Waiting. Slow Stitching Sunday.. Stash Report. from Faith, Trust and Breast Cancer

Saturday's Song:  In the Eye of the Storm
So many times, we find ourselves in various storms wondering what is going on?  Where is God in all this?  I'm learning that He is with me - He is the eye of the storm.  When my life is falling apart, when my hurts are bigger than me, when I'm uncertain of my future, He is there with me.  

I enjoy learning about the backstories of hymns as well as newer songs.  These real life accounts encourage and amaze me.  The story behind Eye of the Storm is no different ...

Still Stitching #7. Yo-Yo's. Book Date. Waiting. from Faith, Trust and Breast Cancer

Still Stitching #7
So far, we’ve looked at these principles which I’ve begun learning and implementing in my life with my loved one. 
The first was:
 Then we looked at:
 And now we are looking at:
 As I was thinking about how to discuss this point, I realized that we are discussing detachment with love:  letting our loved one deal with the natural consequence of their behavior instead of rescuing them.

Oh boy!  Was this a hard lesson to learn – it still is – and sometimes I fail miserably.  But, as I pondered this point, the LROD spoke to ...

For the next year, the team at Blessington, the Australian distributors for Pfaff, AccuQuilt, Singer, Husqvarna Viking, and Handiquilter, are supporting the McGrath Foundation. As October is also Breast Cancer Awareness month, they asked the brand ambassadors to come up with a pink project to share as a tutorial, with the aim that you guys would consider making one to donate to the McGrath Foundation to be distributed to breast cancer sufferers.

Saturday's Song. I Win - PERIOD! Slow Stitching Sunday. Stash Report. from Faith, Trust and Breast Cancer

Saturday's Song
I've never done this before, but I am posting a really long song this week.  It begins with Bart Millard's testimony - it's real - no velveteen rabbit stuff here.  I listened.
I cried as I thought of my cancer, my beautiful grandson's lungs (damaged by RSV) and his life threatening, environmental and ingested nut allergy and each of you and your various challenges.
So here it is.

I sent it to my kids and husband.
I sent it to a few friends.
I cried as Jesus touched my heart.  
Tonight, I praise God for ...
