It's Slow Stitching Sunday, and I will be stitching along with all of you today.
I am sad to share that my brother died yesterday, at the age of 47 years, leaving behind many, many friends and family who loved him and will miss him everyday. I wrote a bit about him in a blog post in 2007, and it is hard for anyone to imagine the suffering he has experienced in his life.
Here he is last year when he was discharged from hospital after a long stay in ICU. He was having a visit with my Mom and was keeping warm in the flannel quilt I made for him in 2006.
As his body left this world, he was lovingly wrapped in this quilt that I made for him. His suffering is over and he can finally breathe and rest.
I will take a week long break from blogging while we sit shiva (borrowing from Jewish traditions) at my brother's house.
I will check in to see what you are working on and hope you will link up your hand stitching blog post below.
