The white for Tree Number 3

I did work some on the white of tree number three.  I have had a rough couple of days.  This journey of grief is a difficult one.  I was so busy for months that perhaps I didn't take the time to grieve.  Well, it is now kicking me in the butt.  I have to admit that there are days that I can't get much accomplished.  Yesterday was bad.  Today I did some errands and did get some stitching done.  I consider that a good day.

Victoria Sampler must know my name by heart by now!  This is box number three is a short period of time.  (Or it is number 4 - I have lost count.)  Two packages are for the Just Cross Stitch ornament issue, which I haven't even received yet.  Autumn box and Trick or Treat were just too beautiful to pass up.  I really need to get some serious stitching done.  I am going to spend some time getting kits ready for new stitchers.  I have given away all my aida cloth. I will have to pick some up.  I want to have little kits all ready to go so when someone shows an interest, I am ready to get them started.  I love teaching someone else the love of needlework.

VS is hard to resist, Taffy. Your new stash looks great as does your progress on the gingerbread tree.
How kind of you to share your love of and talent with stitching with new stitchers.

If we didn't love, we wouldn't grieve. I'm sorry to hear that these days are struggles for you. May you be consoled with God's grace, loving memories and strength of your family and friends.

Taffy, I have a 30 x 96 yardage of pewter gray 14 ct you can have to teach the new stitchers
