I stitched this piece, a design by Linda Palmer of In A Gentle Fashion, when my daughter, Maggie, graduated from high school. It hangs just inside the kitchen door, the main entry to our home. Tonight we celebrated Maggie's 21st birthday with a dinner at our home. Of course, we served (and sent home with the Maggie and her sister, Katie) a lot of tomatoes. After dinner, the girls loaded up their cars with lots of food. The house is very quiet now. The sentiment is as poignant right now as it was when I stitched it 4 years ago: "Each time you leave this room, my heart goes with you".
