Note: If you're wondering about the design, I wanted to highlight two parts of your heritage, the sash is, of course, Cherokee, and the lace is Irish.

Oh, that's lovely! And I adore that it's made up of my parts! *winks* I thank you so much for thinking of me!

That lace has a fascinating pattern, very indigenous looking.

Thank you again!

*big hugs*

Yes! That's why I picked that particular pattern. I tried to match it up with actual Cherokee symbols but struck out. Beautiful lacework though, and done with a needle(!) not a bobbin, shuttle, or crochet hook. I wasn't aware lace had ever been made with needles before working on your card. Amazing the things I learn and the unusual things that lead to my discoveries.

Anyway, I hope you have a day even more fabulous than you are (and I'm sure that will take some doing as I think you're beyond wonderful).

Thank you, dear heart! You're too kind!

I didn't know lace was made with needles either. I thought it took crochet hooks. Learn something new every day!
