My mom is a breast cancer survivor. She underwent a double mastectomy and reconstruction and chemo and now deals with the lymphedema from the removal of lymph nodes when she had her mastectomy.

Meet My Testers

I am going to start doing a feature titled “Meet My Testers”.

These are going to be profiles of the amazing ladies that test my patterns and make sure they are as good as we can make them before I release them to the public. They make sure that my directions make sense, that I haven’t missed any typos or errors and that my patterns work out like my head sees them (because sometimes it doesn’t work that way!) and are generally my cheerleaders!

I couldn’t do what I do without them and so wanted to acknowledge them and what they do in a special way. They are amazing, generous and talented people who I am so blessed to have in my life.

The first profile will be on Friday!
