Yesterday a beloved member of our blogging stitching community and moderator of ILCS Yahoo Group passed away. I'd like to take a moment to remember Rene and all that she contributed to our virtual world.
Rene was always very sweet whenever I spoke with her or exchanged with her. I gifted her with a pattern a little while ago as I knew she was not doing all that great and she answered with "I'll stitch it up for you". When I told her that it was meant for her to stitch and keep she told me that it was all about paying it forward. It was so sweet of her.
Unfortunately that piece will now remain unstitched by Rene as she progressively got worse.
I'm thankful that she is no longer in pain. Even though she will be dearly missed.
It feels as though there are a few less frogs in the world as of yesterday.
I wish to cherish her memory and time with us, and recognize her huge contribution to our stitching community.
This little frog was stitched by Rene awhile back. She always loved the frogs, but we always love when the frogs don't visit our stitching pieces.
