Memento Mori

Or, as the kids say nowadays, Valar morghulis. My apologies to anyone out there who finds this post a bit disturbing. This current UFO was started on Tuesday, September 2, 2014 and I had a hard time stitching on it due to the nature of the project. This particular piece is to be a memorial project for our only child that died in stillbirth. I couldn't stitch on this as it brought up too many memories, however, I picked it back up this past Monday and it doesn't hurt so much to stitch on it now. In all honesty, it actually feels like I am meant to stitch on it. I am hoping that another week is all that will take to finish it up. If so, this will mean this project is #20 from the Bin O'Shame

Design: Ghoul 

Designer: Paulette Stewart of Plum Street Samplers

Fabric: 32 count Belfast linen in Legacy  by Picture This Plus, from their Crystal line. 

Fibers Used:   Access Commodities Soie d'Alger in Noir.

Stitcher's Notes: This was originally a Halloween/Fall type design. Turned into a memorial sampler for our only child. Crystal Legacy used to invoke the beginnings of frost that has landed on parchment paper.  Project originally started Tuesday, September 2, 2015.
