A very sad day...

Mike's grandfather passed away tonight. He was in his 90's. He took a fall at the nursing home earlier today, and he did not recover. Mike is very upset. He has spent every Wednesday for the past six months with his grandfather at the nursing home. This is a terrible loss. We will both miss him very much...


Before the sad news came in, I managed to do a little on And A Forest Grew, and have now finished all of the complete motifs on Section 8.

Stitched on today: Stitched on a gift, and And A Forest Grew
