I’d like to introduce you to my friend Sally. She’s not around the Internet much at the moment but I hope she’ll be back soon. She had surgery for cancer in 2011 followed by chemotherapy. During all that, she still managed to create a fantastic sculpture of the poet Raftery; see her website for more details. I admire her tenacity and determination. Unfortunately, she doesn’t really have the energy for such big projects nowadays.
Last year I helped her with the quilt you can see in the photo. She donated it to a group of crafty people in Mulranny, Ireland, called the “Gift of Hands“. Sally and I do a lot of crafting together and sometimes my daughter joins in too. We have so much fun. In my next post I will show you some of the things we made for Christmas 2012.
In order to help her through the dark winter months last year, I helped Sally start a blog. (That’s what got me into blogging. It’s all Sally’s fault. ;))
