Before anything, I must thank all you marvelous readers on all your blessings and exclamations of sympathy for our loss of our sweet, Emmy. Saturday was a tough day, and although it has been exceptionally quiet in this house, it has been raining constantly since Sunday and I'm not unhappy about letting a dog in and out of the house all wet. Nor, am I upset when our bed is not shaking because our dog (who slept with us) was afraid of thunder and lightning and NO ONE dare sleep while that is happening! I do however, miss the growl every time someone sneezes. Sneezing was not allowed in our house, you know!! LOL She didn't like that at all!! I also miss so much else......much too much to mention. I'm sure you know what I mean. Seems every loved pet has something special that makes them unique. At this point we aren't sure if we will adopt again. It's too early......but if it happens, I will be sure to let you know.
In the meantime, I have been sewing. I sent out a STUD mini quilt to Ruthie who was my partner for the theme, "favorite things". Ruthie likes: Wizard of Oz, owls and birds, schrooms with rooms, embroidered/embellished, and bird nests and branches. No schrooms with rooms, but the tree has one, and please note the lions tail on the right side of the "golden brick road". Everything else, I think I nailed. She loved it.
Then, I was the first one to be done with the doll swap. I had sent my quilt to my partner earlier in the week, and yesterday received mine from "boutiquenutmegdesigns"..(Meg). She nailed my likes to a T.
Then, just for fun, I sewed this little number. It seems I'm really into red and white lately......I'm thinking it's my sympathy for the Japanese people, who knows, although I do love red and white anyway. I even think the next thing I make is also going to be red and white. Why I'm thinking in only those colors is beyond me.
I showed this to the owner of my LQS this morning and she asked when I was going to write a big pattern for it. ???????? Good question, and perhaps that might be in the cards too. I better do it soon though so I don't forget what I did. Duh!
So, you see, I'm still alive and probably working harder than ever. At least for now......thank you all again for your sweet words and love. It means so very, very much to both me and my DH!! I've read every one of your comments to him too. And we cried together. But, that's good......
Smooches to all of you!!!!!
