Gift for a friend


My friend Sue and I started stitching a memorial piece for our friend Joyce in February. In January, Joyce lost her son Stanford to cancer. It was very sad. We found a really beautiful sampler called Memorial Sampler from Midsummer Night Designs. We finished it recently and gave it to her this past Saturday. This was the most important piece Sue or I had ever stitched before and although it was sad I am so glad we did it.
