Last finish for October & remembering

Put the last stitches in my last finish for the month of October last night. I have no idea of how I managed to finish it as I was upset and crying most of the day yesterday. Yesterday was the one year anniversary of me losing my son to stillbirth at almost 21 weeks. It was a hard day to get through, but get through it I did.


Now that I have finished this up, I need to stitch his memorial piece soon. That will help with the grief, I think.
At any rate, here's what I managed to accomplish:




Design: Waiting For The Harvest


Designer: Blackbird Designs

Fabric: 28 count evenweave of unknown origin and color. (Possibly Bay Leaf by Wichelt.)


Fibers: Crescent Colours Belle Soie silks in Carrot Cake, Collard Greens, Old Crow, and Vanilla Pudding


Notes: The MMX in the upper right hand corner are the Roman numerals for 2010. I saw someone else do this for their piece and I absolutely loved the idea! :)










I am off to do some chores before work. Hope everyone has a fabulous Halloween weekend! :)
