WIP-Monday

Cory gave Annie this wonderful green tee-shirt and we have decided to decorate it. Since it's been a year since Finny died, we decided to do a Finny-We-Love-You shirt. We are stitching the "Finny" on with red floss and Annie is doing a fair bit of the sewing. We are doing tiny stitches so it's taking a while. The felt is wool and I highly recommend washing it in warm water first to let it shrink up, and/or bleed before cutting or sewing.
I recently watched some short camera movies starring Annie and Finny, and I was remembering what a delightful little companion he was. Watching him at Annie's side in literally EVERY movie triggered a wave saddness, shock and confusion all over again about losing him. Ugh...I know that once you love someone, the love keeps on going...


We still love you Finny!

The Queen was in the parlor eating bread and honey. Where's the bread and honey. That child is beyond belief, sitting there sewing so like she does it everyday!
