Weekend Finishes

Sure 'nuff! I finished up Joyful World SAL May and July over the weekend! I have enjoyed the little rotation I have going and plan to keep it up while stitching April and August.

Here are the sweet little finishes:

May is stitched on 32 ct. Belfast linen, Sugar Cookie with DMC floss.

July is stitched on 32 ct. Belfast, Sand, also with DMC.

It's so nice to get these done and to maybe even catch up before the next design, September, comes out.

On Saturday Gary and I, with daughter Melanie and SIL Daniel, drove over to Auburn for the memorial service of our dearest Aunt Bev. If there was ever a person more full of fun, laughter, and character, I have yet meet him/her. She was also an amazingly talented artist, active in the artist circles on Camano Island for many years. Her Christmas cards each year are so treasured, even the ones on copy paper where she drew out illustrations for her letter. She was so encouraging to Melanie as she developed her artistic talents over the years. We're going to miss her terribly at our family reunions, and our hearts go out to Uncle Bill and their children and grandchildren as this Saturday the first of the grands gets married. It'll be a very happy/sad occasion. But it's comforting to know that one day we'll be rejoined and spend eternity together.

Congratulations on your finishes.

I'm sure you'll miss your aunt. An aunt very dear to me also passed on in July. I share your hope for sharing eternity with her. Prayers for those who loved and miss your aunt.
