Gifts of Love

The church that Rich and I attend is called "A Place in Time" in Pembroke Pines, FL, a very small church and has only been around for about five years.  They have a few ministries that they work on and with some other churches and community organizations in the area.  One of the founding members, Trisha has cancer and goes locally for chemo.  So, we have put together a gift bag called "Gifts of Love" for other people who also has chemo.  In each bag there are items like: Lip balm, mouth wash, wipes, mints, lotion for the skin, a blanket to cover up with because it can get cold, along with some other necessary items.  When I was diagnosed with cancer 19 years ago, I use a notebook for things like- questions, feelings, appointments or whatever came to mind.  So I thought why not add a notebook to the "Gift of Love bag.  I was working on one for an upcoming swap I'm doing with a group online.  Here is the one I did for the swap, a needlebook also goes with it, will add that later.
This will look so great in other fabric, some masculine,  some for younger people, will have to come back and see what I come up with.  Hoping this will bring some sense in a stressful time in someone's life. 

Happy Stitching


  1. This is a great idea. Our guild makes lap quilts for adult chemo patients at our local hospital.

  2. What a great gift idea... just perfect!
