Sad news for me last week

One of my 'crafting ladies' who has been coming to my house monthly since 2008 sadly and unexpectedly died last Wednesday.  It was such a shock and I still can't quite believe it.  We had our last session on Dec 8th to finish off some Christmas cards and we had arranged another session for last Sunday. I spent the day in a bit of a haze.

Her favourite craft medium was card stitching.  I think this is because she was a Tailoress before she joined the WAF at the outbreak of war and subsequently met her husband - a Spitfire pilot.

So I have made a very simple stitch card as my sympathy card to the family.  I know she would have approved.

Here are some of her cards



  1. Such sad news Carol. Her cards were really well done and I'm sure she had a wonderful time at your craft sessions. Hugs.

  2. Sad news indeed Carol. Always a shock for everyone left behind but so nice for the person concerned not to be in any pain. Her cards were beautiful.

  7. Hello Carol, just got back from Cape Town and found your beautiful Christmas card, thank you so much. So as to enjoy my cards, I am leaving them on the mantelpiece til the end of January! Sorry to hear about your friend, your card to her family is so pretty as are her cards. Michelle x
