That's how this past week as felt to me.
Last Tuesday a co-worker was killed in an accident. There's a small article on what happened here.
I worked with Steve almost every night at my job and you just don't think about how much a fellow worker is a part of your life until they are gone.
Steve was the life of our workplace.
He would do anything for anyone at anytime, and that is no exaggeration.
If you said "Steve, I need you to give me the shirt off of your back", he would do it and not even ask why you needed it.
He was very knowledgeable about many different things and if a question would come up about something, the inevitable phrase you'd hear would be "Ask Steve".
We all would try and stump him with trivia questions, not an easy task, ha.
He loved to fish and hunt but he was a "catch and release" kind of guy and would not kill something just for sport.
He was a big fan of my baking and made it a joy to make something to take to work. He loved life, his family and his job.
I have determined in my heart to be more like him and do so in his memory.
So...on the stitching front, this is all I have finished lately:
It's a gift for a friend but is waiting for final finishing before I can send it to her. Meanwhile I am working on the newest Loose Feathers called "Their Song" and a Scarlet Letter sampler, "And All for an Appil" and of course, the Village. Hope to update here soon with more pictures.
