My Forever Friend
A sister is a forever friend.
Today a package arrived from my sister. It contained gifts for all of us, including the two you see above (for me!). Of course I was delighted to get the Yarn Harlot's calendar. And the fact that my non-knitter sister sent it to me shows how she pays attention and cares. The cross stitched picture is even more beautiful than it looks in the photo, but more important than that, it is something my sister made for me. She is always busy, and I have not known her to pick up a needle in a very long time, so I am humbled and honored that she would put in the time and care and love to make this for me. I will always treasure it.
I know if I have it framed and put under glass, it will be protected and stay clean. But what I long to do is make this into a pillow that I can hug close to my heart. And I have a feeling that is exactly what I am going to do.
