My Squares...

Some of you may know about the current stich-a-long project with Amy from Inspire Co.

Every one's supposed to stitch a little square every day for 39 days.

Well, I had started this about a year ago, when she was doing a different sampler. Man, it is so fun, and very theraputic. It's become a doodle with embroidery thread as well as a bit of a journal. Kind of like a year of my life.
I've got swatches of fabric that I used to make my baby her quilts. I have a breast cancer pin. Originally for my mom ( A SURVIVOR), but now for Aunt Liz too.
I have mostly flowers, because they're my favorite.
I have a seashell and the ocean becase that's where I was, out of town, last year when my dad passed away. I have a sun because I call my son, "Sunny Bunny", and a cupcake for "Baby Cakes" Harper.
I also included some buttons that were my mom's and her mom's and her mom's.....
A duck for my friend Lori who passed away 9 years ago.
Every thing on here means something. I love it. I have one square left, I started with some candles, but now I'm not so sure.... we'll see if that one gets ripped out and started over.

It shouldn't surprise me that your stitching moved me to tears. It's beautiful.

I. LOVE. IT. :o)

So amazing. I think we need to spend more time together so your creativity and skills can rub off on me. Love you!
