Progress on my Daisy rug and Kenny's cancer

Here is my progress on my Daisy rug

Daisy (the dog), the daisy flower, the orange round berries and the brown picture frame-ish border are done in an 8 cut.  Her name will also be in an 8 cut. The grass and blue sky are done in 8.5 cut.  I have rewrote her name, hence the double vision you get looking at it.  I am using 3 different blues in the sky and am really liking it.  I am using the lightest blue to outline around Daisy to give her a glowing effect.

Most of this was done before Kenny's cancer diagnoses last March.  He completed 6 weeks of radiation and chemo just before Memorial Day weekend.  His blood work stayed normal through it all and he only had a few days of feeling like he had a bad hangover.  Most of his issues now have to do with the effects of the radiation to his esophagus, but he is still able to eat mostly normal so he is thankful for that!  His follow up PET/CT scan is in a few weeks and then surgery the end of the month.

We want to say THANK YOU!!!  to all that have keep him/us in your thought and prayers.  We are firm believers in what positive thoughts/vibes can do for healing.
