Sweet memories...

Sun, sand, stitching, family and friends---memories. Now that fall truly is in the air, only the sweet memories of summer remain. Had it not been for Anna hosting a challenge, this little project would have been just an unstitched memory of a project seen on a blog some where.

A summer overnight with the oldest grandgirl leaving behind a note tucked under my bed pillow. Can a memory be any sweeter?
Sweet memories, sweet dreams...much the same?
