    I did not know about these. Well, peach is not one of my most used colors, but I do have some... I am just glad to have survived. Maybe someday I will make a ribbon quilt.

    I guess with what you and other survivors had to endure wearing or using the color to celebrate your new life is the easy part!! Congrats on your new life!!! Enjoy it (even if you feel like you have to wear pink :lol: )

    :Love your avatar!!! I need to put one up - Dont want to my real pic up - It would probably blind some viewers and I surely wouldnt want that!!!
