Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves. Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given to you because you would not be able to live them. And the point is to live everything. Live the questions now, and perhaps without even knowing it, you will live along some distant day into the answers. - Rainer Maria Rilke

Visual Tapestry for Hope

I have a new project that I am going to be working on.  It's a Visual Tapestry Design for the parents of Hope Stout.  If you don't know about Hope, this is a short description of her story:
The story of Hope's battle, and the compassion and caring she showed towards others until her death, sparked an unprecedented outpouring of support from her community. When given the opportunity to have almost any wish fulfilled by the Make-A-Wish Foundation, Hope's wish was that the other 155 Wish kids would be granted their wishes. The story of Hope's life and her wish captured the Charlotte-areas hearts and souls and the legacy of her wish continues still today.
Hope's parents, Shelby and Stuart, have continued to carry out Hope's wish by establishing a foundation in her memory.  This year the March Forth with Hope Foundation is hosting a gala event to raise funds for the foundation.  If you are interested in attending, you can link to the MFWH website.

During the evening they will have a silent auction and I will be donating the services for a Visual Tapestry Design piece.  As a sample to put out at the auction, I am using photos and images of Hope and her family.  I am picking up the photos today and will post some of them for you to see if you can find them in the final design.  That's one of the things I love best about these designs, you can look and see a totally different picture each time.  Blessings All!!!
