...and then there were three...

First, thank you all for your kind comments and your expressions of sympathy. It's been a tough couple of days for me and I appreciate your support.

Tonight was spent making many phone calls. I had many things that I should have done, but felt like I needed to relax a bit, so I pulled out the latest installment of Essy's Friends from Elegant Stitch. It came in the mail this past weekend. The design is from Sampler Cove and it's called Halle's Heart. It's an original quaker motif stitched on 32 ct. Awareness Pink with two strands of Threadgatherer Silk 'n Colors in lavender. It is finished in a square tin pin. As you can see, I've completed three of these so far - I still have four of them waiting to be stitched!

Hi Cathy!
I wanted to send you all my thoughts and support for the painful loss you have just experienced. I too love my aunts very much -they're second and third mom to me- so I relate to what you're living at the moment.
Your Sampler Cove project is very very beautiful! This is a wonderful project.
Sending you lots of hugs!
