When my dad passed away, my Uncle Hugh came up to me and told me that he could never, ever take my dad's place, but that if I ever needed someone to fill a small part of my dad's shadow, he'd be honored to take that spot. Oh how I miss that gentle fellow who did a wonderful job of "shadow filling".
I'm sure that my dad and Uncle Hugh are having a great time together in heaven - blowing their train whistles with the angels...(or knowing them, AT the angels!!) :)
I miss you, sweet man!
I "cherish" having such a wonderful Uncle to call my own.

Since my "Who's Afraid of the Big Bad Wolf disaster (I 'm afraid of him, btw), I decided to pull out something quick, cute, springy and meaningful. (That's an awful lot to expect from a little design, don't you think?)
I pulled out and stitched up this "Honey Bunny" project. I've watched my hubby go into "daddy" mode during this scare with Ian. (He even bought Ian his own ceramic wolf for his room - kinda makes me feel better about my epic wolf -stitching master disaster). My sweetie has called me "honey bunny" for as long as I can remember and I can't think of anything better than stitching a piece that reminds me so much of him.
I loved this happy stitch and participating in the WIPocaplypse!
I "cherish" a quick-to-stitch that is so personal and puts a smile on my face!
