Finally A Finish

I've had very little stitching time since my Mum went into the hospital just over three weeks ago now.  She is getting better and stronger every day.  She will have a serious condition to learn to live with once she gets out of the hospital, its was really sketchy there for about a week we were truly starting to wonder if she would really pull through.  This last week she has improved in leaps and bounds.

How about something happy, like a Happy Dance????  This piece should of been finished during the long weekend at the beginning of the month, but life got in the way.

My childhood friend, Andrew got married in Montreal on September 10th.  I took one day off from visiting with my Mum in the hospital to go, it was just one of those moments in life I just couldn't miss.  Andrew and I have known each other since he was born (we're 6 months apart), we were neighbours, we made mud pies together, climbed trees together, built snow forts, and built wicked jumps at the bottom of the hill we would go sledding on.  No matter where we've been in life we've always known where the other was and how to get in touch!

Here is the Wedding Sampler I stitched for Andrew and his new wife Yan:


Two Shall Be As One

Stitched on 32ct White Lugana
Stitched with Carrie's Creation Blueberry and Monarch

 The wedding was gorgeous, the day was gorgeous!  Here are just a few shots from the day (I've got so many and not enough time to go through them).

The kiss
