Goodbye



A week ago today, my grandmother passed away.  She was 89.  She'd lived a good, long, full life, and she was ready to go. ...none of which seems to make it hurt any less, but I'm working on it nonetheless.

It seems appropriate to mention it here, because Granny was really the reason I started sewing.  She was an awesome quilter and a pretty prolific embroiderer.  She loved the chain stitch and french knots (Ironically, I started embroidering a pillow cover with french knots last Monday.).  She was a great Southern cook and just about the most selfless person I've ever met.

I'm coping, but I'm really going to miss her...
