Wool EWE be Mine?

Here is my little
"WOOL EWE be Mine?" design all finished...
I punched the background in striped rows...kinda looks like fabric to me!
then simply mounted the punch onto a double layer of wool.
...what do you think? (I like it!)

Now on my frame is another new pattern in the works,
"Primitive Hooker at Heart Punched Pins & Pouch"
(say that fast three times without spitting! bwahaha!!)
I'll share a sneak peek pic tomorrow...
but I must tell you now,
that my results from my biopsy results came back a little while ago and
they are BENIGN!
what a weird, wonderful word...benign.
Thank you Thank you Thank you
I can now exhale.

...my love & sore booby hugs to you all!
blessings from the farm,
Lori

TheCrankyCrow said...

Oh Lordy be....I go MIA for a few days (that's all it was, right?) and come back to see you've been partway to hell and back. So very, very, sorry I wasn't there to cheer you on in thought and prayer. It's a spooky thing I know - I think I hold the record in Nod for the longest mammo appt - 5-3/4 hrs. Routine mammo went to 3 more scans, an ultrasound, a needle biopsy and aspiration. Arghhh... Anyways - glad to hear the great news. Celebrate and be blessed! Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin
