Leather & Lace and Amazing Grace by Cathe Holden
Cathe says Often through the most difficult of times, we summon the courage to be as tough as possible, though in contrast, there are many moments we feel so delicate and frail. My experience through recent breast cancer treatment and my current recovery, I've also felt incredibly blessed in many ways.
Tough as leather, delicate as lace, but always blessed by Grace.
My "LLAG" fabric collection with its pretty florals, sweet ginghams, vintage needlework, and journal collage has been designed to shine a beautiful light on those who journey through the most difficult experiences, and to the beautiful souls who carry us through.
