Stitch from Stash 2015 ~ March

This last month has been difficult and life was shelved in favour of spending as much time as possible with my Lovely Dad.
Consequently I have two months to report

Brought Forward ~ £50.00

Month ~ March & April 2015

Spent ~ ZERO

Credit ~ ZERO

Carried Forward ~ £100.00

I can't report any starts, wips or finishes as I have done absolutely no stitching ~ on the up side, I haven't spent any money!

A Girl's First Hero

My Dad

17 September 1921 to 2 April 2015

Later today our family bids farewell to my first hero.

As a boy of 7 he contracted smallpox and was placed in a sanatorium, miles away from home, not allowed visitors ~ my Grandma could wave to him from outside when she was able to get there ~ and he wasn't expected to survive.  At 93 (and a half!) I guess he showed them!

A wonderfully devoted husband to our late Mum, Veda Ann, Dad  to us 11 siblings, Father in law to all our spouses, Granddad to 21 & Great Granddad to 12 ~ a lasting legacy.  We are truly blessed to have had such wonderful parents.
