    My sil is going through a tough time right now. She has breast cancer and had a double masectomy two weeks age and lost her 40 year old sister to cancer less than a week later. I can't be there to help so I mailed this quilt to her yesterday. I told her that she would have a hug from me every time she used her quilt.
    (She is doing well physically but is struggling emotionally right now.)

    She certainly has alot to deal with at this time. The quilt is gorgeous and I am sure she will get much enjoyment out of it. I will keep her and her family in my prayers.

    What a beautiful quilt. I am sure she will love it! What a wonderful gift. When she gets the blues, she can just cuddle up in the quilt and feel the love.

    My thoughts and prayers are with her.

    I hear too many woman and lately more men suffering from breast cancer. My friends daughter just had a double mastectomy and she was only 30.

    You are a wonderful SIL for doing this for her!

    My LQS gives everyone a free yard of material if they show their receipt from a mammogram. I get mine next month.

    Beautiful hug quilt. Saying a prayer too for your SIL. I too have had a double mastectomy (9 years ago) so understand what she is going through.

    What a beautiful & thoughtful gift. I'm sure it will bring great comfort to your sil in her pain & loss. I hope she will feel the love that went into it & that comes through it from you each time she enjoys cuddling with it. Cancer is a 4-letter word, but we have to be positive when we face it like David was when he faced Goliath.
