Goodbye Dear Viv

Many of you may know of Viv from Viv's Creations. She sadly passed away last night after battling cancer for some time.  She was a very talented designer and I have sewn many of her patterns and been to many of her classes over the years.  We had lots in common and hit it off straight away, and I was very fortunate to call her a friend - a very special person in my life, who I will sadly miss -

This was the last time I saw her - 12 months ago, although we emailled regularly.

Many of her designs grace my home, especially at this time of the year as we both loved Christmas -
Welcome stitchery in my entrance hall.
Lots of stitchery on this stocking.
Love this naive tree with lots of three dimensional ornaments stitched to it.
Another favorite.
And my tree with all my lovely handmade decorations on it has several of Viv's on it. The cute little reindeer is one from another lovely friend, Keryn. 

I will miss you Viv. Cheryl xx
