I know it's late but I finally finished my piece and I wanted to post it.  After doing a lot of research and looking for pictures for inspiration I decided to concentrate on what a woman can do to help herself, thus the self exam pics.

The self exam pics were taken from here: http://mammoscan.com/screening.htm

All other elements were created by myself and the layout/design/coloring was my own.  I used split, back, whipped back, long/short, stem and satin stitches.  I used a common color on the swirls to tie it all together, but graduated the coloring within them from dark to light, symbolizing the use knowledge and power.  The dragonfly was added as a symbol of strength and self awareness. It was stitched on a cotton/poly blend and embellished with white embroidered felt.

The pictures used here are crap but I hope to take these down and replace them with some better pictures sometime soon. I have no idea what I want to do with it yet. I was thinking about putting it on a canvas and seeing if a Dr's office might be interested in displaying it...but for now I haven't a clue.

 I loved using my creativity to express myself.  This is something I really enjoy about embroidery.  This is my second piece (ambitious) and therefore the stitches are far from imperfect if you are looking closely.  Luckily (another thing I like about embroidery) the medium is very forgiving from far away.  I'm very happy with the overall look of this piece.

I recently finished this for a friend whose mom passed away from breast cancer.  F Cancer is cross stitched and then I added trinkets belonging his late mother to the shadow box. The arrangement needs work but I could tell by the tears that he liked it.

That's the best sympathy card I've ever seen.

Way to go.

i know this is an old thread - i stumbled upon it looking for something specific...

but this IS a GREAT sympathy card/gift given the situation it was made for!

what a wonderful, healing sentiment!
in some circumstances, such a thing could mean the difference between going through grief in healthy manner as opposed to dis-functionally/unhealthily/chronically.

anger is part of the process but it's hard to be angry sometimes at the departed or at GOD...but cancer is a good target of those feelings!
