Tried to post a picture but kept getting error message

Fish Over Troubled Water

This piece began with a simple fish pin purchased at a thrift shop. The central wave chasing the fish is composed of fresh water pearls from my broken wedding necklace. The gold buoy below the fish was the pearls' claps. The gold wire fishing neck on the back of the piece was created with solder. The ocean strands are composed of ruby, emerald, and sapphire beads. At the top of the net there is a gold tarnished ribbon that hangs over the fish, which is hard to see in the picture. This was created with solder by accident....a fortuitous accident because the ribbon shape made me realize how connected I was to the piece. I had begun working on the piece shortly after being diagnosed with breast cancer. The piece is about navigating life's many storms.

lindawolf1955: does the error message say your image is too biog. You could try resizing it and post again. I would like to see it, it sounds glorious.

Wow Miriandra! Stylish and soft. Must have been a lot of work to crochet something so intricate.

It's actually a fairly simple pattern - just three different stitches. The most challenging part was inserting the sleeves, since I adapted it from a scarf pattern.

I was struggling with my BC recurrence and had to write to get my frustration out. Here's what came out:


I have experienced breast cancer twice and I am not used to it
I have scars that remind me everyday of what I have endured
I have to put on a brave face to get through everyday

This is not a journey, it's my life and reality everyday
This is not me being strong, it's me being alive
This is not something I will forget, it's carved into me

You can't tell me how you would feel if you had breast cancer
You can't say that my life will be back normal soon
You can't tell that me you want to help if you are afraid to

It won't fade away with time
It can come back again for a third time
It is a fear that is on the prowl in my mind

You are my friends, family and partner
That will not ever change
Even when I have been changed forever
