Well, I have gone thru several phases of the grief process about Belinda leaving (I'm sure I will do it all again when she actually goes) and I have moved on to acceptance. I wanted to make something special for her before she goes.
Belinda is a committed Christian, so I thought I would go with a cross theme. I really hope the cross is not to contrived. I know God is very important in her life, but not being a part of my life, the cross is all I really know. We did a sculpture workshop a while ago, and she was going to do a cross for her garden, but decided it would look a bit like a grave stone, so I am going with that knowledge, and hoping that a cross will be appropriate.
The plan so far is to embellish, and then make into a wallhanging. I am not a technical sew-er ( the hyphen cos otherwise it is sewer! Is there no such word as sew..er?), so the shape may cause problems. But, with a little help from above (as I am assured that He does look out for all of us), I am sure it will all work out.
