Slow Sunday Stitching

I actually finished a couple of things this week while sitting by John's bedside.  I wrote a post here  about the last week of my dear John's life, who passed away on Thursday night.  

I finished my mermaid tail blanket.



I made granddaughter Klara a  unicorn washcloth.  The pattern can be found here.  My knitting is a little rusty, but Klara didn't seem to mind.



What I will be doing this week for Slow Sunday Stitching is working on another washcloth, this time a baby seahorse.  Have just barely started this one.  



I will be linking up at Kathy's Quilts for Slow Sunday Stitching.  Head on over and check out what everyone has been up to.

I would like to thank everyone for the prayers and comforting words during this stressing time for our family.  

Thanks for stopping by!

I love the mermaids tail and the washcloth looks fine to me, what would we do without our crafting to help get us through the sad times. Sending hugs. Xx

What a beautiful living tribute to you husband. The songs calmed him since the last to go is the hearing. Many prayers for strength Karrin. Your family will need that from you. Hugs
