WOYWW....rainy days

 I'm at home today, which is unusual for a Wednesday. The weather is dreadful so I'm having a play. Whilst on holiday last week I might have visited a few craft shops on the East coast! I purchased a Tim Holtz alphabet die called Chip Block. My plan is to have a jar full of letters to make many titles on future layouts......
In the background is my finished appliquéd cushion. I completed this a few weeks ago and planned to give it to the dog charity I work for. Unfortunately my friend has to put her dog to sleep later today as Florence's heart condition as taken a turn for the worse and she is suffering now. I am going to give this cushion to her in memory of Florence who she rescued a few years ago. It is so sad to lose your dog at any age but Flo is just 2 years old, she was born with a serious heart murmor....
 Run free Flo at the Rainbow Bridge....Big G is waiting for you x

What a wonderful warm hearted person you are Joanne thinking of your friend like that. We lost our little Papillon, Bobby in November last year so I know how your friend will be feeling right now. You certainly need people who care around you. Tell her I am thinking of her.
Best wishes

What a beautiful gift that cushion will make..truly a comfort; you are a good friend. Poor Flo. I will be interested to know if you use the pre-cut alphas..I've still got loads of letters I cut in various fonts, all sorted into a little pocket type photo album...somehow they're never 'right' for what I need!!
