My Pink Stitch for May

As you may have read last week, my friend Shari, lost her battle with breast cancer. This month's pink stitch is in memory of her.

I stitched "Loving and Faithful Friend" by Little House Needleworks. It is stitched on 25ct. Light Rose Lugana with Weeks Dye Works Bubble Gum, 1 over 1.


I finished it kind of like a pinkeep adding a pocket on the back to put in her remembrance card and program from the funeral.


I added some pink metallic braid on each side so I could attach it to the outside of my ongoing pink basket.


It turned out just the way I had hoped.

Thank you for all your comments. I appreciate them.

Hi Jill, I am so sorry to hear about the passing of your friend Shari. I think the pinkeep with the pocket in back holding the remembrances is very special.

I do love what you made for your Mom and it looked like she loved it.
