Good Morning Everyone!
Since my last post life got a little sad and busy around here. 
On the 5th my Sister in Law passed away suddenly at the age of 47. Her husband (my brother in law) took this very hard. We helped him through the funeral and now we are helping him clean out of the house they had shared. She had become a Hoarder in the last few years. We have spent the last 2 days cleaning and going through all the stuff, and we are still not done. I am taking the day off to get caught up with stuff around here. The real sad part is that her daughter is due to have a baby in the next month or so. 
Life keeps moving on!

Before this all started I did get some stitching done and a piece started.

I  hope to get some stitching in today but we will see what I get accomplished.
Well I am up to 11 baby calves so I better get dressed and go out and feed them.

Happy Stitching

Carol said...

I'm so sorry to read about your sister-in-law, Denise--so young and how sad that she never got to meet her grandbaby...

I love that angel and think it would make the perfect thing to stitch for a friend who also just lost her sister. Thanks for the link. Your witch finish is adorable! Keep those little calves warm :)

Terri said...

So sorry for your loss! Hugs and prayers.

Great stitching

I'm so sorry for your loss Denise, I hope you can find comfort in your stitching.
Best wishes.

Vonna Pfeiffer said...

My deepest, most sincere sympathies...that is horrible. And so very young. May she rest in peace. I will say a little prayer for her soul and for all those left behind. Your helping your BIL is certainly a kind thing to do, I'm sure he's a whole lot lost right now.

Your stitching is sweet and I sure do love that Hope ornament myself!

Vicky L said...

Very sad news and my condolences!
Your angel and Witch came out beautiful. 11 calves is a lot.
