My husband and I took our morning walk in the cemetery today. I should have known something was up when he threw the white sheet into the car. These are the kind of things I get roped into being married to a photographer.

Last Saturday I was privileged to participate in the Susan Komen Race For The Cure in Little Rock with my sister-in-law Gloria. Gloria is a 30 year survivor of breast cancer. This race is HUGE in Little Rock. It's a 5K that takes a couple of hours due to the crowd of thousands of women and children that take part. The following is a very small sampling of the pictures I took. There was every kind of pink costume imaginable, music on every corner, men honoring the women as we passed, and best of all.........so many smiles and happiness everywhere! My husband said it was very emotional for him to watch as women crossed the finish line because they were all extremely happy, smiling, waving, and the positive energy flow was staggering!

Here's the results of about a month's worth of hooking and sewing. I used the same rose motif for each bag, but they were all hand drawn, so there is a variation in patterns which keep them all unique. From left to right, I have two clutch bags, and the third has a strap. Each bag has a contrasting plaid wool lining. They each measure about the same, which is approximately 8"x9". The bag with the strap is a bit deeper. I'm on to one more rose bag, then may take a break and prod myself a kitchen rug. Not so much to think about when prodding....
