Pattern Searching...

I found out today that a very close friend of mine will be moving away.  Her husband accepted a job transfer to the States, she will be leaving sometime after school's out at the end of June.  I'm crushed.  She's crushed.  We cried.  We wiped each other's tears & hugged.  Jeez, I sound so dramatic, but we're sad... :(

So, I want to make her something, hopefully before they go.  So I have about 6 weeks I think.  Does anyone have any ideas of a good friendship pattern?  Ornament, pinkeep, maybe a box topper.  Smallish in size so I can have a chance of finishing it before they leave.  I'm going to dig through the crap craft room this weekend.  The plan was to work on setting that room up some, but I'm thinking this is more important!

Oh, that's so sad. My best friend moved to Australia 7 years ago and I miss her every day.
What about Lizzie Kate's 'Friends are like Angels on Earth'. I've stitched it several times for close friends.

It's hard to part with friends. A real bummer.

There are tons of cute friendship patterns around. I'm sure you'll find something to make your friend smile.

My best friend moved away four years ago and I remember how sad we both were--I still miss her, but, luckily with the internet we can keep in touch quite regularly...

Here are a couple of links to friends themed freebies that might help:

Oh I know exactly how you feel! My best friend moved six hours away almost ten years ago now. I stitched a chart called Friendship by Brightneedle for her. It's a lovely design and not very heavily stitched so you could do it in the time. I'm sure you will find something xx
