An Unplanned Finish ~

Sorry to be so far behind on posting and commenting, but it's been a bit crazy here.  First of all, the sun has been shining more than usual, so the garden has been screaming for attention.  It did reward us though.  Our clematis is beautiful this year.



Whenever the sun comes out, we get the travel bug, and we've had a couple of fun trips lately that I need to share, but all of my good intentions have been derailed upon learning that three friends have recently been diagnosed with metastatic cancer. Thus, I've dropped everything to knit some prayer shawls.  One is done, and the second has been cast on.



I hope it will bring a measure of comfort.  How I wish someone would find a cure for this dreadful disease.

First of all on the happiest know if your flowers are gorgeous. It has been a beautiful spring here not too hot, not too cold. I am so very sorry to hear about your friends. How lovely that you care enough to make him prayer shawls. Your completed one is beautiful. It is a wonderful ministry and can bring much comfort. If you would like to send me an email with their names, I would be happy to add them to my prayer list.
