Goodbye Poppy


Today we took our cat Poppy to the vet as she was getting very thin. They told us she had kidney disease and it would be best to put her down. We have had her for 9 years and she went through some rough times of sickness. She had a stroke about 6 years ago due to taking in poison of some sort. Then she recoverd but lost her sense of hearing. I feel too upset to blog properly today. I'm sorry Poppy for the times I treated you wrong. I'm thankful for the many happy memories you brought us and all the presents you used to bring us through the catflap. Goodbye my Poppycat.

Okay, I caved...

I have a new start! I have started A Most Noble Pursuit which is a collaberation of ten different designers. Here is my small start on the first square which is by The Workbasket. It is worked on 36 count lakeside linen and uses needlepoint silks. What's another BAP hey??

Here is my finish for the JA's March Challenge. I made this little pillow and stuffed it with lavender.

I am having a hard time trying to decide which SALs to join at the moment as there are that many going on.

EMS Rose Sampler
Periphaeria Spanish Sampler
Papillon Creations How Does Your Garden Grow?
Ink Circles Book of Circles mystery
Tournicoton Mystery
and probably several others which I am unaware of. If you know of any then let me know and I'll add them to my to do one day list.

Here's some pics of the kids. One of Elijah smiling. Poor lad he now has three teeth that I can spot. And one of Lily doing her Girls Rock thing with her new electric guitar that her dad bought her.
