My Weather

To everyone who has left me a comment or sent me an email about Lady, you have no idea how much your kind words and virtual (((Hugs))) have helped.  I want to say a special thank you to everyone who emailed me just about everyday to see how I was and to make sure I was okay, you know who you are, thank you all so much.

It's getting easier everyday, I know it's going to take time.  Sam has been very "clingy" he is following me everywhere, when I am sewing he is at the side of my chair or under the table and when I go to iron he sits under the ironing board.  He is laid asleep under my legs now, I guess it's strange for him, Lady has been a constant in his life too.

At last I have been in my sewing room,  I wanted to do something that didn't take a lot of thought, something that I could just sit at my machine and sew without using any brain cells as I didn't feel like I had any.

 I wanted to do a cover for my lounger, it has a mesh seat so I end up with marks on the back of my legs, not a pretty sight!.... so here it is without the cover

and here it is with the cover,  all pretty and shabby chic.....

I used two charm packs of Papillon, it took 60 squares, I picked out the pinks and blues and creams, the back is just a plain grey.  Now all I need to do is go on holiday so I can use it  "wink wink"    Hubby doesn't seem keen to have one on his chair, can't think why.....I promised I wouldn't use the pink !!!

It never gets any easier..

Today we said goodbye to Lady.  She had had enough.  She deteriorated quickly this week and hadn't eaten anything since Wednesday evening.  It's always a difficult decision to know when it is the right time, it was the right time for her, but not for me, I have lost my little buddy, and it hurts like crazy.

Time goes by.......

Thought I would do a little post just to let everyone know I am still around.

The Lady of the House is taking up most of my time at the moment.

She is having some bad days when she wont eat and drink then perks up and licks her bowl clean.  It is becoming a 24 hour job making sure she is okay, but it's the job I took on nearly 19 years ago, I have looked after her all this time and I have no intention of stopping now.  It does mean that I don't have as much time for me at the moment, so sewing and posting on the Blog are taking a back seat.

I have finished my red and white quilt though.

The fabric is French General Rouennieries Deux and made from the charm packs I won from FQS.

Have you been watching the Olympics... me too!! Loved every minute of it.  In my quiet moments when Lady is sleeping I have started stitching The Patchwork Village by Rosalie Quinlan

I decided to do the stitchery in pinks and greens so it's a little bit different, two down, seven to go!!

Take care

Hugs Linda xxxx
