It's A Pie
I do have a more serious problem though. My beloved mother-in-law passed away two weeks ago. My husband flew back in time to say goodbye, though I almost had to kick him out. He wasn't sure that I was healthy enough to be on my own, but I managed just fine. Unfortunately my doctor did not think I was healthy enough to fly, so I couldn't go with him. He stayed to help his sister with the estate and to attend the funeral and burial. I am glad that he went and also glad that he is home again before my chemo and radiation started. But I have been stitching Tranquilty (The Shells) specifically for my mother-in-law. I look at it in my To Do pile and don't know if I will pick it up again. Have any of you started a project but not finished it for someone who is no longer here? I hate to abandon it, but it also makes me sad to look at it. My husband did bring back several stitched items that I had given my mother-in-law over the years and some items she had stitched. None of his family would really appreciate them the way my excellent needlepointing mother-in-law did. I have plenty of other projects to work on, so I will just let Tranquilty (The Shells) sit for a while.
