Close at Heart Cross Stitch

August 23, 2011

One of my best friends Lynette is leaving me. 

She is moving to New York City to become a famous baker. Really! 

I know she will do well. I put one of my used atlases to good use to embroider her a little picture to hang on her wall. I'm happy with how it turned out. I hope Lynette will always remember how important she is and how loved she is over here on the west coast.

I cried as we prayed over her, and I cried in my hubby's arms that night after the party. The only thing that's keeping me sane is the fact that I know she is in God's care, and following his amazing plan for her life. She is the most self-less person I have ever met. I love you Lynette. 

(to make this gift I made a photocopy of an old atlas page, and stitched on it a bit to show her that our distance is truly not substantial)
