A Sad Days Stitching

Yesterday my grandma passed was a bit  a shock as she had only been saying she'd had a little bit breathlessness and wouldn't see a doctor..turns out she had bad pneumonia. So sad that it could have been treated but she hated doctors  wouldn't have wanted messing about.

I can't imagine how gramps will manage without her, as you can see they were a proper pair of soulmates. A beautiful person inside and out, who never failed to see the magic in the world...yes there was fairies at the bottom of her garden. She never failed to inspire with  fairy stories and spotting faces in trees and clouds, she never seemed old.

I'm heartbroken but thinking of how much she was my stitching inspiration. I learnt cross stitch at her knee and some of the earliest samplers I have I stitched with her help.

The smaller one is still on the wall. She always proudly displayed any of the family's crafting in the dining room

I can't imagine not having her about to show my latest endeavour to and talk stitching. It was sad seeing the house today with things like her hat on the side as though she'd only just set it down.

But I do know there's one beautiful angel stitching in heaven.

keep stitching...
