Not a stitchy update this time around~ next one will be though
For some of my friends that know me I am an avid animal lover and have pets of my own. Yesterday my cat Annie died. She was 16. I had gotten her as a gift for my 16th birthday. She was a peach fuzzed little cutie. Over the years we grew up and changed together with all the changes that life threw our way. When I was single she used to be a big old grump and hated my boyfriends she would growl and hiss at them and not let them come anywhere near her. That all changed when I met Mike my husband. she turned into a big sweetheart after meeting him and turned into an even bigger softie after my son was born. When James was a baby she would sleep under his crib every night and then when he was old enough to sleep in a real bed then she would climb into bed with him every night and occasionally sneak under the covers with him as well. She was s good girl and a part of our family. It was hard to see her suffer and even harder to see her pass away because towards the end she was in so much pain. I like to think that she is at peace now and no longer in pain. This week has been hard and stressful for me because I have so much going on here as well that today was one of those days that I just wanted to be left alone and I stayed in bed most of the day after I got James on the bus this morning. The following pictures are of my Annie girl when she was a baby and when I was a teenager and her with my husband and son over the years.
In the next day or so I will post a update on what I am working on. I finished a very special piece for my father and I think many will like this one! Thanks for stopping by.
