A Labor of love...





I got it! Fed Ex came the other day and received a gift from my dear friend ,Amy, who lives in Michigan. The gift was a afgan/knitted blanket. Those who donated their monies,to the Hope Lodge in Grand Rapids, Michigan, received hand-dyed yarn made by her mother of Briar Rose Fibers.So each person knitted a square and then all came together to make a beautiful,cozy afgan blanket I am such a blanket person,even in the summer,when the A/C is on I cozy-up on the couch(,especially on my chemo days.) So when Im wrapped in this I know it was made with love.

Thanks you all who put their time,effort,knitting skills and love into this "labor of love". And Amy, I truely thank you for this gift, the colors in it remind me so much of you.

I am just amazed at this whole ravelry. I am the prayer shawl volunteer coordinator at the Grand Rapids Hope Lodge and just connected with Chris from Briar Rose. Then I found your blog- as a fellow survivor you are doing such a service of education to everyone who reads this blog. I am also a Relayer as my husband and I have been co-chairs for our Relay in Grand Rapids ( Forest Hills). I hope you are feeling strong and I just love your 'gift'! Pam Roach
