A little stitching...




I havent stitched that much this weekend; I worked all weekend and we were so slow. I hate when it's slow; the time goes by so much slower. I'm still pretty depressed over Scarlett & Ash being gone; it'll just take some time; the bad part is she still has to come back to meet the movers before going to Germany. And I'll have to go thru this all over again.

I started this picture out of my Stitchers Journal by BBD for my oldest daughter Heathers birthday June 3. I have an "important" box that I've had for as long as I can remember; I put silly little things in it that mean a lot to me; like I have the card from the flowers my dad sent me in 1979 when I had my gallblatter out; I was only 17 and it was a major surgery at the time, all my grandparents glasses, my dads glasses movie stubs; cards the girls made for me in school, scareltts hat from the hospital; my hospital bands from when I had my girls; you get the idea. Mine is a Sketchers shoe box. LOL I'm going to Joanns ad see if they have a wooded box; I want to colour it dark blue and sand it to make it look worn; and put this picture on the top of the lid. I think she'll love it. And these are my violets; their blooming like crazy.

I'm off work tomorrow and hope to get this finished up; then I'll start something for me; I haven't decided yet what to do?? Take care all.

It's a great idea to keep a box full of special things. It can pick you up when you are down! Sorry to hear that you are still hurting...but time will help!

Love the BBD piece you are working on. Sorry to read your babies are gone Sharlene. Time heals dear. Utilize your stitching as therapy.

What a great idea! Funny how we gather our precious memories in a shoebox, but we all do it! I love the piece you've chosen to decorate the new box with. this will show how special they really are! Lovely stitching, too! Big hugs.
