Thank you :-)

Thank you, dear friends, for your kind words and thoughts regarding the violent death of one of my colleagues. You are all so supportive and wonderful. I did stop doing homebased treatment a few years ago (except for one family), and this is one of the reasons why. More and more info is coming out about the crime... and it is really very disturbing.

I heard from Kajsa today that she has received a little birthday gift that I stitched for her. It is her actual birthday today, so Happy Birthday Kajsa! I experimented by using a dark Silkweaver Solo Belfast for this one. It is very brown. I was wondering if it was OK, but Kajsa assures me she likes and collects dark linens.... whew!

And then, right back to Be Kind and True. This fun stitch is bring me peace in this troubled time...

How scary! Home based counseling can be so risky. I always admired counselors who did it.

Both your pieces look fantastic. That new start will be done in no time:)
