I recently spent several weeks in my home town, spending time with my mother as she was leaving this earth. It was a stressful time, but joyful in that I got to spend a lot of time with Mom before she left. To help me unwind each evening, I started on a little Mill Hill Buttons & Beads kit my sister had (thanks, Lynette!). This is "Home for Christmas."
I have a ways to go yet, but it will be done soon so I can get back to working on my grandson's stocking. ;)
