About Me

My photo
I’m married (for the 2nd time) just over a year now. I have 3 children ages 21, 17 & 16 as well as a daughter who is 21 years old from my husband’s previous marriage (not a typo) and recently married so I am now a mother-in-law as well. I think it’s great!! All my love to both of them!!! As long as they wait to have children until he is out of the Army! I’m also a Nursing student in my 2nd year of school. I’m seriously considering a change in my major to Nutrition. Much as I want to be a Nurse, I think becoming a Nutritionist may be the avenue I choose. I am fluent in American Sign Language and speak Italian as well. I also love the outdoors, camping, hiking, riding motorcycles with my husband, and the beach are among a few. I hate the cold but I love snowball fights with my family. I enjoy crochet of all kinds, but there’s something about the detail when it is done with crochet thread that I especially love. I try to spend as much time as I can enjoying life and what it has to offer.

Awareness Ribbons - Pink

I recently saw a pattern for Beaded Awareness Ribbons and as I've always liked them, I decided to try to make one.

The pattern I was given was for a beaded ribbon done in a combination of ladder stitch and brick stitch. I altered the pattern so that it was done in odd-count peyote stitch. A similar pattern but for me, I prefer peyote stitch. Besides it being one of my favorites, the original pattern called for size 11 seed beads which I changed to Delicas size 11's. I find they have a more uniform size.

So far, I've done 5 awareness ribbons and each one is slightly different.

Pink Ribbon:

Most commonly associated with breast cancer awareness, this ribbon is also a symbol for birth parents, and childhood cancer awareness
