HERE I have found a LOT of joy in doing this. So far all the supplies I have used have been from my stash. I have made 52 hearts thus far. Maybe you could do this in you neck of the woods too? It's fun! And it brightens someone else's day!💖
I finished stitching up my August Calendar poodle. I have said this before, but I think THIS ONE is now my favorite! She is a cutie. Watch for her the first week of August!
I am now back to stitching that pink sampler(Angel Blush linen and VMSS Rose Pink floss) for me that I plan to hang on my kitchen wall.😍
Here is a question for you. Do you know anyone else who has a pink kitchen? Now I only have pale pink kitchen walls. And my pink and black valance. And my pink KitchenAid mixer on the counter. Those are the "things" making my kitchen pink. I was just wondering if you have come across other pink ladies?
I think you know me by now? I wear pink most of the week. I can't help myself. Really. I just can't get enough. Nope. Like, ever. I have loved pink my whole life.
This beautiful, illuminating tale of hope and courage is based on interviews that were conducted with Holocaust survivor and Auschwitz-Birkenau tattooist Ludwig (Lale) Sokolov—an unforgettable love story in the midst of atrocity.
“The Tattooist of Auschwitz is an extraordinary document, a story about the extremes of human behavior existing side by side: calculated brutality alongside impulsive and selfless acts of love. I find it hard to imagine anyone who would not be drawn in, confronted and moved. I would recommend it unreservedly to anyone, whether they’d read a hundred Holocaust stories or none.”—Graeme Simsion, internationally-bestselling author of The Rosie Project
In April 1942, Lale Sokolov, a Slovakian Jew, is forcibly transported to the concentration camps at Auschwitz-Birkenau. When his captors discover that he speaks several languages, he is put to work as a Tätowierer (the German word for tattooist), tasked with permanently marking his fellow prisoners.
Imprisoned for over two and a half years, Lale witnesses horrific atrocities and barbarism—but also incredible acts of bravery and compassion. Risking his own life, he uses his privileged position to exchange jewels and money from murdered Jews for food to keep his fellow prisoners alive.
One day in July 1942, Lale, prisoner 32407, comforts a trembling young woman waiting in line to have the number 34902 tattooed onto her arm. Her name is Gita, and in that first encounter, Lale vows to somehow survive the camp and marry her.
A vivid, harrowing, and ultimately hopeful re-creation of Lale Sokolov's experiences as the man who tattooed the arms of thousands of prisoners with what would become one of the most potent symbols of the Holocaust, The Tattooist of Auschwitz is also a testament to the endurance of love and humanity under the darkest possible conditions.
Thank you for every single one of your prayers and well wishes for Scott and Jenny and their son and daughter. Scott is headed back to City of Hope on Wednesday for blood work, heart tests, and chest x-rays. He is scheduled for surgery to have that cancerous kidney removed on the last day of July. Scott has stage 4 renal cancer. There are small cancer nodes in his lung that Scott will undergo treatment for after his surgery. One step at a time here. A workup first in a few days. Let us keep praying fervently my friends!!🙏🙏🙏🙏
