It is a Sad Day.

We had to put our beloved cat, Moofasa, to sleep today. He was such an important member of our family. Such a LOVER. He would talk your ear off, even when you wanted to sleep. He let you know when things around the house just weren't right. He was my design consultant when I was sewing, he had to touch each and every fabric. Most importantly he cared for each and every member of the family. When you were having a bad day he caressed you. When the babies cried he came to see what was taking me so long to get to them. He greeted every guest with a warm welcome.
It was a difficult decision today. He was always a LARGE cat, nearly 20 pounds. Today he barely weighed 7! His kidneys had failed and were very small. Even with treatment he may have made it 2 weeks to possibly 2 months. I couldn't let our gentle man suffer any longer. My husband had him at the vet. Gina and I said our tearful goodbyes to Moofasa over the phone. She cried so hard telling him goodbye. My husband, who rarely shows tearful emotions, broke down. He held Moofasa and asked the vet for a brush to brush him one last time. I could tell when Kerry got home he had cried during the 20 minute drive home. We are heartbroken. I am done with having pets for a while.
Goodbye Moofasa, you will forever be in our hearts. Thank you for being so good to us.

I Really do Like to Blog.

I know I haven't been blogging much. I have really been trying to get more things done that I have been neglecting. If I read my blog I probably would have quit checking it long ago! Thanks to all of you that still check in from time to time. Below is my contribution to Sarah's Heart to Heart Valentine Swap. I received so many goodies, most of which were immediately claimed by Gina and added to her room :)This afternoon Gina and I began making some new little dolls. She collects the Harajuku Perfumes and has been dying to make some of her own! I love my crafty little girl. I am off to see if the paint is dry so we can work on these girlies a little more :)
* I just noticed the summer Harajukus, if Gina sees these I will have to get a job to support her habit!

I Made the Deadline!!!

I finished the quilt! I LOVE the way it turned out! It was dark when I took the picture so the colors did not turn out the greatest.
Look at how happy he is! The 5 days of power sewing was all worth it! Happy 7th Birthday Bay!!!

*I used the Wonky Star tutorial again for the border on this quilt.
