I have received many email wondering how I am, how my FIL is and what I am stitching. I cannot thank those of you enough that have been so supportive, understanding and kind to me recently.
Sadly, there has been no stitching. Things are so much more stressful here than I ever imagined they could be. My heart just continues to break for my husband and his family. I have been through a lot in my life. I lost my only sibling to a auto accident when I was 18 and he was 17 (he would have been 46 today. I miss you so much-I hope your birthday is amazing up there), I have lost grandparents and other loved ones and of course the tragic loss we suffered in January of this year....but this cancer that is taking my FIL from his family has really grabbed hold of my heart and won't let go. I am sorry I am not online, not blogging, not visiting your blogs, not sharing...but my heart is just not into it. I have tried to make it be-but it's just not. I am sure that will change at a later date.
I did manage to frame a piece I stitch a couple of years ago. Please excuse the fingerprints-I didn't realize there were so many on the frame where I handled it Had I known I would have cleaned the glass again before photographing. I DID clean the glass before hanging!!
I absolutely love this sampler. It is among my very favorite one I have stitched.
I got my bifocals yesterday-maybe time will allow a few stitches soon.
Ellen S-thank you so much for the bookmark. I love it and you for thinking of me.
Linda O-thank you for the piece of linen-it will be put to good use!
Thanks for checking on me-I can't tell you how much that means and I will not forget how thoughtful you are.
Love and hugs from SC,
