A Prayer Reguest

Seems my dear friend Kathy 
is loosing her battle with ovarian cancer.
The family has been told she may have 
only 24 hours to live.
So I ask for your prayers of comfort for her, 
for her family  and friends.
1 John 5:14
She is an Amazing lady and my has 
life is richer for knowing her.
Proverbs 10:22

Sadly Kathy passed away last night. 
Today I picked these flowersfor her husband, Jim
 from our yard. 
Purple was Kathy's favorite color.
 I took a photo of the arrangement
and quickly made this 
Sympathy card using the photo.
Flowers will fade but the card will not.
 Then Chip and I took it over to him.
This is the set I made Kathy before she
Started chemo and had her surgery.
She never took off the Ovarian Cancer band 
off that said "FIGHT."
And fight she did with grace and dignity.
I was told today that she'll be buried with it.
Which touched me deeply.
Thank You all for your thoughts and prayers.

New Necklace from 6th Bead Soup

My Partner from the 6th Bead Soup
was Sarah Goode.
(This was in the summer of last year)
And in the bonus soup she sent me 
were these  magenta leaves.
They have that rubberized feel to them.
Did I want to make earrings?
A bracelet?
Use one here and two there?
In the end they all were used for this necklace.
As it happened I had a few of the same 
color in some coin shell beads.
I also have several shell necklaces that needed 
some more pizzazz!
I think this touch of magenta did the trick.
Thanks Sarah's a soup that keeps on giving!
