SUEBONNET SUE WAS HERE

Sunbonnet Sue was here! I am fighting back tears as I write this tonight. We have lost one of the most amazing ladies, CC from http://lacenribbonroses.blogspot.com/. I loved CC, she took me under her wing when I started blogging. I only knew about Sunbonnet Sue because my friend loved this little lady so much. CC was an amazing woman. She is the person who sent me one of her vintage hankies just because. She sent me a beautiful Texas postcard of the birthplace of our former president Dwight D. Eisenhower. That was CC. She was sweet that way. She always encourage me and helped me along. With her gentle push I learned to post those darn buttons and as you can see I am getting good at it! I am going to miss her terribly. I could always send her a quick e mail and she would respond. She took care of me like a sister. I cared for her so much. My only regret is I have a package sitting here that I was going to send her. I found a perfectly hand stitched hankie that was trimmed in pink that I am sure she would have loved along with a duplicate of my pink quilted purse she loved so. I am just sad that she could not see these gifts sitting her for her today. My friend CC taught me that somehow one of these days you will be able to visit every single Pink Saturday participate because that was her way! She shared awards and smiles with all of us. She gave so much of herself and taught us all to love little Sunbonnet Sue! I am grieving right now but I am going to find a tribute to my friend and I am going to call my sweet friend Laura in Parker, Colorado and see if she will help me out. She is one of those crafty, quilty kinda gals. Ironically my sweet friend CC was also a Laura. I am going to miss you more than anyone can know.

Oh Anne Sweetie...
When I saw her CC's son post about his Moma, I was so shocked. She touched so many of our lives, and yes she reminded me of Sunbonnet Sue each time she had a chance. I will forever think of her every time I see my daughter's baby blanket that just happens to have Sunbonnet Sues all over it, or anytime I see a Sunbonnet Sue. CC was so giving. Her heart was full of love for people. She was one of my first followers too.

Thank you for the wonderful tribute about her. I would have mentioned it the other night, but I assumed everybody probably already knew. I am sorry sweet friend.

Many hugs and much love, Sherry

What a lovely tribute to your friend. I didn't get to know CC but she was a member (like me) of our Bloggerette Sorority. I hope you can find peace someday with her loss.

P.S. Thanks for visiting my blog, your kind words are really appreciated!

Love your tribute to our sweet friend, Anne. I have an itch to make something with Sunbonnet Sue myself, in memory of CC, but have not yet decided on anything yet. I have been busy finishing up a crochet shawl, and am setting my son up for home schooling, AND am helping my daughter move to a bigger apartment. But at night I light a candle, and I say a prayer for CC and her family, and I remember the wonderful friend she was..... God bless you for your beautiful insight of CC meant to you and so many of us. ~tina

Anne this is a special and very sweet tribute to Cici! I didn't know her as well as you but I did admire her and how sweet and wonderful she was. I have a special place in my heart for Sunbonnet Sue's (my Mom likes them) and her posts always made me smile. I will be joining Vintage Thingy Thursday with some Sunbonnet Sue's in a tribute to Cici!!

I also will miss CC (Laura). She was such a sweetheart. I will never be able to look at a Sunbonnet Sue again without thinking about her.

Hello Anne, this post about dear CC has me in tears. I didn't know her very long but she was a delightful blogger and friend as soon as I met her. I didn't know you were so close to her. I am truly heartbroken about her passing and my prayers go out to her family.

This is a lovely tribute to our sun bonnet girl, CC.
Blessings and love, Jeanne

I am so sorry for this sad loss. Sending a hug your way. This was a beautiful tribute. I suspect she is smiling up in heaven at your friendship.

I'm sorry for your loss - mine as well since I never got to know her.

I think you are much like she was - so thoughtful and kind.
