I have finally put together a piece that has been on my sewing room wall for some time. It even has a title. Tonight I opened a new package of batting - the Mountain Mist fusible White Gold (100%cotton) that I love to use. Tomorrow I need to cut and layer it so I can stitch sometime in the next few weeks. Not yet - I have too many other things I must finish working on. But I feel a sense of satisfaction at having gotten to this stage - against all odds.
Jessica, Tommy, and Miss Emma flew to Milwaukee Friday night because Tommy's sister Tania, who has been bravely battling colon cancer for about 2 years, had taken a turn for the worse. She was too ill to travel to NY when Emma was born and has been devouring the Facebook pix and videos, saying she couldn't wait to see Emma.
Friday night, she finally got to hold her new little neice,kiss her, and tell her she loved her. By Saturday night, she was gone. I honestly believe she waited for Emma. Rest in peace, Tania.
