It's been a year.




I can hardly believe it has been a year since I lost my father. I may not burst out in tears as often, but the loss becomes harder to bear with each day. I miss him so very much.

After he died last year, I came home and sat down to design a piece for the Virginia Stitch For The Cure event. It was quite profound, designing for the fight against cancer after having lost my father to this disease. The design poured out in one day; it just came right off the needle. I called it GIBOR, hero, in Hebrew.
The workshop in Virginia took place last month.


Today I am bringing the design to you.



It will be available on the website (here). It comes in four colorways. I also designed a little extra piece, A Flower for the Cure, which is included in the instruction package and in the kit.

I can not believe how much you look like your dad in that black and white photo of him as a young man. You two share the same smile.
We had the best time with you all. can't wait to see you again soon.

Robyn, do you know you just gave me the biggest compliment ever? In his smile I see all his kindness and love for us. I can only hope to share that with him. Thank you.

Send our love to the cutest boy ever, Tobi, his daddy, and a huge hug to you!
