Unfortunately not good news from the drs and not feeling too well nowadays. So, please bear with me with my sporadic posts and replies… 😦
Hope to be 🙂 next time!
Thank G-d I got a clean bill of health for my cancer, but not a week later I am laid up in the hospital with an IV drip 😦 I got an infection in my arm and cellulitis to boot…
Hope to be home in a couple of days, though, and I’ll try to post more then.

A few people contacted me and asked how I got the photo on the fabric for the Exposed Breast Cancer Quilt. Since I do a lot of photo transfers, I use special fabric bubble jet ink and treat the fabric myself. The actual xrays is fabric that I carried at the time. I now have another similar one but not the exact same. As an aside, I now also sell prepared photo transfer fabric from June Tailor by the piece at $3 each.
A little help from G-d, friends, and family– I belong to a quilt group called “Quilters of the night kitchen.” We challenged ourselves to exchange a baggie of scraps and use them in a quilt. This was my interpretation. I love them all and I added the hand holding the last block (on the bottom right) to emphasize how I need everyone for their support. This quilt is not bound, but is on stretcher bars, it is quilted, however.
Bernie Siegel, I Hear You – I read a lot of inspirational books to help me through a very hard time. Bernie Siegel
inspired me to visualize attacking my cancer cells. I found the bulls eye fabric and I knew exactly what I would do. The only thing is that maybe my cancer cells came out a little too cute.
“Exposed” came about when I was going through my gazzilionth procedure (when I had breast cancer), this one was an X-ray and I noticed 2 containers, one marked exposed and another marked unexposed, for the films. As I lay there, I was thinking that going through any kind of medical treatments makes you feel just that- exposed. I asked the technician if I could have the film and thats what how i made the lettering.
This is the first in my “Breast Cancer Series”
