New Start and 9/11

This is what I have so far. Just her little hat is done, but it's something!


Here's the chart photo. It's Shepherd's Bush's Little Witch. Really pretty soft colors. Softer than what the chart shows. This one was a kit and came with a beautiful linen--Country Mocha--which is a kind of swirly, marbled look. It also came with luscious shades of silk threads in lavender, yellows, greens, and pinks and a really soft black. This will likely be done before the Mira Halloween Fairy, lol!



9/11 info below!!

And if you're so inclined to remember this important day, please check out this link. It's one of my favorites and I view it throughout the year, ever since it was made back in 2003.

REMEMBER THE BLOOD OF HEROES

It really is amazing how our memories fade over time, isn't it? Today my local radio station was taking call-ins from people who didn't want to hear anything about 9/11 anymore. They said it was too painful. While I agree to an extent, I find that I must bear the pain of remembering to purposefully acknowledge the lives lost. I feel it's the least I can possibly do. I respect those who cannot however.

The Pentagon Memorial was dedicated today. It's beautifully touching, and filled with so much detailed relevance and importance with regard to each individual life that was lost at that location on 9/11/2001. Check it out online if you can. If you can get there in person, please do. It's beautiful. I could go on and on, but the idea is that hopefully you will take a moment to remember.

Wow...I watched the link, had never seen it before. It was powerful and moving. This day is full of painful memories, but we have to remember in order to prevent it from happening again. If we forget, then all of the innocent have died in vain. Thank you for sharing that link.

We can never forget! It is painful but I don't think our ancestors would want us to forget Pearl Harbor either. It's hard, but we must remember.I agree with Staci and for our children's sakes.

This is such a cute one. Don't have it, but it's on my list. I do have Goblin, even though I haven't started it yet. I love their colors and designs. Goblin came with a mat as well, so it will be even more fun to frame. I didn't know the Witch was done on country mocha, that is one of my favorite fabrics. Your earlier finish of the PS Stitching Fairy looked great as well.
