John and Renee placed announcements in the local newspaper and at the church we grew up in, asking people to send cards. Dad said that an announcement was also made at their current church, and the congregation applauded.

Another stitching finish relates to our cruise last fall. One of our ports of call was Rhodes. Once we got back home, that gave me the incentive to finish a piece, "Variations on a Rhodes Theme," by Freda's Fancy Stitching. I enjoyed doing the piece so much that I've ordered the two companion patterns, "More Rhodes to Follow" and "All Rhodes Lead to Stitching."
