Sad twist to the tale of the R's wedding necklace

Some time back, a very nice "patron of the arts" friend requested a wedding necklace in creme colored thread with white beads for her daughter. She wanted "R's" in the design to represent the names of the bride and groom. The wedding was planned for October

But - I received a frantic phone call from her the other day asking if I could please finish the necklace and send it immediately. The sad news is that the groom has just been diagnosed with cancer. The couple have decided to get married in a quick ceremony, and he will fight the cancer with the treatments available.

Let's hope it all works out.

This took my breath away. How sad to start your life together with such a diagnosis. But it will be the strength of the two bonded together that will make them get through this. Beautiful work.

You are all so kind. The lady who ordered the necklace doesn't have Internet, so I plan to print off the kind wishes from my blog readers to send to her, along with an extra copy for the bride and groom. I think they will find it touching that people they've never even met are offering well wishes for them.

Valentina, that's great that you have started tatting! Keep it up - there are a lot of good tatting websites and Online videos to help beginners.
Thank you for the compliment :-)
I have been tatting quite a while, but am always finding more to learn from the many wonderful, generous tatters out there.

When my daughter got married, the priest presented then with a rope of two strands knotted together. He told them that the knotted rope had much more than twice the strength of a single strand. I hope their union will give them enough strength to fight this together.
Beautiful necklace, I am sure she will treasure it.
