Prayers for Betsy Stinner

The verse is growing a bit on And A Forest Grew, but it is still pretty hard to understand based on what is stitched so far :-)

I have read in several sources today that prayers are needed right now for Betsy Stinner, designer of Earth Threads. Betsy is a cancer survivor, and has been cancer free for a few years now. Unfortunately, she learned very recently that her cancer is back. She will be having aggressive chemotherapy now, and prayers are needed for her. She won her first battle, and we can all help her to win her second battle. I have been fortunate enough, as have many of you, to have taken several classes with Betsy in the past. She is an amazing woman. God bless her in this time of need.

Stitched on today: Started a gift, and And A Forest Grew

Forest is growing quickly. :)
All the little motifs on it are fun to look at.

Betsy is such a sweetie. I've been lucky enough to have several classes with her at a stitching retreat my LNS hosts every year. Hopefully she does as well this time as last, and never has to deal with it again.

One day soon, you will be finished this project! Looks great. I see that you started Dawn-are you doing her on the recommended fabric? I have her in my stash-with willow fabric by PTP.

I hope too that Betsy Stiner will come through okay-she sounds like an amazing lady.
