This too shall pass

I thought I had this one finished last April. Had it pressed, ready to finish, then I realized I didn't add the backstitch around the outside which I needed to do the actual finishing. Oops. I was going to do it "this weekend" in April last year so, maybe I meant this weekend in February 2018?

If you missed it last time, this was designed by a Cancer survivor and had the year she was diagnosed and in remission, if I remember the info in the chart correctly. I've instead used my mom and aunt's shared first initial and the year I lost each as a more of a memory of them.  Now I just need to sit down and finish it, once I can make some space.  Currently, the dining room table where I sew is buried in threads.

Anyone need Rainbow Gallery? I have boxes of threads thank you to my mother who could not pass up a good deal despite her preference to spend time in the shop pulling new threads for the next project. Some should appear in the barren Etsy shop soon, some will be on FB also to help it all find a new home.
