Tuesday morning was particularly bad. We went to morning mass, as usual. Many people came to bid him farewell, it was so touching. Try as I might, I couldn't control myself. I had to leave before mass got started. By the time I got to the car, I had the "hiccup cries" so badly, I didn't think I'd ever stop. Once I finally calmed down, I went back in to a meeting room and served coffee to his friends. He is a true gentleman with a kind heart. He will be sorely missed.
With all the happenings, I haven't posted the October Round Robin swap pictures. Here is what I received from the lovely June at Butterfly Wings. I borrowed these from June's blog. June - THANK YOU! Lots of little yummy threads and embellishments, beautiful blue heart (my favorite color). I love it all - and the butterfly will remind me of you.
A sweet "Thank You" note from Renee at Monkey and Mutt for hosting the Halloween Exchange. I was completely and utterly floored with her kindness. Thank you, Renee! (Please pop over to her blog - she is one talented young lady!!).
My dear SIL in Hawaii sent me more lovelies to stitch. She really knows my heart:
Pumpkin Harvest Necessaire from Praiseworthy Stitches (above).
More samplers from Victoria Sampler. THANK YOU, VAL!!
