Hello Friends, Family & Fellow Crafters!
So this week's rotation was Rules for Life by Kincavel Krosses. I love working on this piece. And even though the design itself is fun to stitch, that's not what makes this piece so extra special to me. A very dear friend of mine, who was like a second Mom to me, would love to see my projects and see what new patterns I would get. One day I showed her the Rules for Life pattern that I had just got. She loved it. She said to me that she would really really like a stitched piece of that design. She had liked a lot of the patterns that I had. But she had never asked for me to stitch any of them for her. This was the first time. I absolutely was going to stitch this for her. I bought the fabric and the floss. I had some other things I needed to work on before I could start this design for her. And then last summer, completely unexpectedly, my second Mom, passed away. I was devastated, She would never get to see this piece come to life as I stitch it. She would never get to see the finished design hanging on her wall. But I knew, I still had to stitch it. Her daughter came into town from out of state to take care of Momma's things. We had never met in person, but both knew all about each other. And we all felt like family. So I decided that when I did stitch this design, that I am going to send it to Momma's daughter & family. I think that's where it belongs. And I think that's what Momma would have wanted. I really hope they will like it.
So here is the progress that I made on Rules for Life in this weekly rotation ...
Next up on the stand for weekly rotation, back to Queen Bee!
Until Next Time,
