This beauty had a mission.
Well, maybe more like I had a mission.
A young man, a family friend's grandson,
had his lung cancer come back from remission and
the outlook has been very grim.
I knew that I had to do something,
and so I made this shooting star, just for him.
Each piece was sewn with a prayer for Jared.
I knew that I had to complete it soon, so that
he would be wrapped in comfort.
I finished it in just a couple of days.
I was a driven woman.
I took it out in the bitter cold to get a couple of picture.
The snow made for such a beautiful backdrop.
I added a very important addition
to my creation - a label, which I often do not do.
It was super easy and I know that I will be using that method again.
You can find the tutorial on
Therm-O-Web's blog today.
Enjoy every moment for we do not know when will be our last.
