As you have probably guessed,
the Bittersweet Stitching Sisters will not be gathering in 2020
due to to the pandemic.
We have been together for over 10 years now and look forward to spending time together each autumn.
We've been on many adventures each year
We've taken classes with our favorite teachers
at some of our favorite places
Although we hope and pray to be together again in 2021,
it won't be the same
We lost one of our dear Bittersweet Stitching Sisters this summer.
Our dearest Nicki passed away
We were blessed by her amazing faith, her endless generosity,
her boundless support and constant positive attitude.
Nicki was always thoughtful and inclusive
She was talented in all of the various mediums that she worked in
from cross stitch and quilting to rug hooking and wool applique and knitting too
We are blessed for having known her
She is greatly missed!
Until we meet again...
"Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say of the Lord, "He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust."
Surely he will save you from the fowler's snare and from the deadly pestilence.
He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge;
his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.
~Psalm 91: 1-4
