a message from Joyce: If you have been following along for the past few days, you have observed Sarah learning to sew. This has been a dream of mine from the day she was born. Yes, this room that we have been working in is actually in our house. Up until recently, Sarah has not had much interest in joining me as I retreat into my "woman cave" each evening. Then all of a sudden, she took notice of some amazing fabrics I was receiving. I think she got the creative fever too.
So I set out to find something I could start her on that would be easy and with quick completion so she would have instant satisfaction. Pillowcases came to mind. Oh the power of this Internet. I searched pillowcases and up came this amazing project, the 1 Million Pillowcase Challenge.
When Sarah came home that day, I showed her the website and started to read her the description on this promotional card...
As soon as I got to the word cancer, Sarah's face lite up, she became excited and immediately said "Kristen. I will make a pillowcase for Kristen." I just have to say it is moments like this, that I want to gather all the naysayers of Ds into a room and let them chat with Sarah. Let them see, just how alike she is.
So today, there is a post on Kristen's blog that will have Sarah absolutely beaming when she sees it. Please go take a look and be sure to leave Kristen some love. She is one very brave gal.
