I received this bookmark commission from a long time customer about the first of May. After sitting in my recliner chair for 8 weeks, hooked up to a WoundVac machine, I have learned a lot of lessons. Pray more, be joyful, and so thankful for hubby and great friends who have taken care of me, prayed for me, encouraged me, visited me.

I finally have gotten back a little energy. It is so wonderful to be able to do a little calligraphy again. And although this is not super creative, it looks kind of nice sitting on a larger piece of silver foil card stock. The silver foil did not photograph well. Fortunately my customer is a patient woman! Have a happy weekend everyone!
