LK Exchange from Pirjo....

Waiting in my mailbox tonight was this wonderful package from Pirjo. This is the cutest design and I love the colors!I don't have it in my stash so that makes it extra special. Forgot to take a pic of the backing fabric but it has falling leaves that match perfectly. I have already added to my fall decorations.

This was a nice ending to a good but sad day as we attended the funeral for a lady who was very special to my husband as a child and teenager. Growing up in the South, we both had special ladies who helped our moms with the housework and babysitting while they worked. It was almost like having a second grandmother. Verdell was in Andy's life from the time he was a small child up through his college years. Though they had lost touch over the recent years, it was nice remembering the special memories he shared with her and how she impacted his life. It definitely makes you think about family and not taking for granted anytime we can spend together.


  1. Awww, a lovely exchange piece to receive! Enjoy!

  2. Losing "family" is always hard. We went to a wedding in Isle of Palm SC yesterday and as I sat and watched all the family we rarely get to see it made me feel good to know we had all been brought together by a happy occasion this time. Sadly, it is usually a funeral that assembles us as we all live at different ends of the world. So, Andy should cherish her memories and remember the good times.

  3. So glad it arrived safely and that you like it! I love the design and will surely stitch it for myself too!

  4. What a cute piece that you received - just darling!

    Three years ago my daughter got married, and for the first time in 25 years all three of my brothers and I were at the same place and time. This February, I lost my oldest brother, and I think how lucky we were to have had that time together.

    This will be my 4th MB Fall Fling. I went in 2005 and 2006 and 2008. 2007 I was with my daughter as she gave birth to our DGD!! It really is a great time and a wonderful bunch of ladies. Can't wait to meet you there!

  5. Adorable exchange from Pirjo:)

    I'm so sorry to read your husband lost someone so special. I'm sure he felt blessed to have known her:)

  6. Love the LK piece . Very cute! Been skimming through your blog and it is a very nice one.A lot of things caught my eye but would take too long to list hem. I love the BBD 'Moonlit Garden', beautiful job on that.I also noticed the chart from Little House Needleworks- 'Joy in the Journey'. I have that one in a kit ,but I don't like the idea of the beads that came with it so I won't be adding those. Beads on some things are ok, just don't care for them for that project.

    Have a great day and thanks for visiting my blog!
