A Little Sunflower Finish

About a month ago, just prior to the 4th of July, Sandy of SanMan Originals, had heat stroke and then went into a diabetic coma. On 07.06.2017, Sandy's husband Tracy posted this to the SMO MB:
"Last week Sandy suffered a heat stroke that was followed by Diabetic blood sugar coma other complications have followed that probably won't recover from. her short term memory has vanished, she doesn't even know what day or year it is. She asks a questions then moments later asks the same question and minutes later does it again. I know she can't help it and I'm very patient. But it is getting dangerous now as i have to keep checking behind her. She turns the stove on but doesn't wait for the burners to light filling the kitchen with propane gas or leaves the burners on when lit. She starts the washer with no clothes in it and the dryer with wet clothes still in the washer. 

Please Pray for her to get better"

At this time, the message board, of which I have been a member since the very early 2000's, has been shut down. Her poor husband obviously cannot do both at the same time. I stitched this wee little thing, which made its' debut on the message board in 2013, as an offering of prayer for her and her family in the hopes that she gets well soon. Any good thoughts and prayers for Sandy I am sure would be much appreciated.

Stitcher's Notes: This was either a Message Board freebie or this was a Secret Shop purchase. As it is a .pdf and not a hard copy chart, alas, it is not for sale and/or trade. Stitched one over one. 

I must be off now as dinner is on the boil. I hope everyone is having a great week.

Happy Stitching!
