update on my Crystal

My Crystal, in my studio just the day before...
It's hard to find a good way to say it. 
I love something Lynn of Sew'n Wild Oaks passed on from a friend, 
"Dogs never die, they fall asleep in our hearts"

I keep hanging on to that because it helps fill this BIG empty hole in my heart.
Following our visit to the vet with the sad news that she had a large tumor on her spleen, we took her home. We spoiled her with warm broth, dog cookies and cheese along with little bits of food. She actually started eating more and improved. Was up and her usual self, barked at the mailman, ran to greet Beckie when she came by one morning. I even entertained the thought that she was going to be OK. Sunday evening, those hopes were taken away. Crystal now lives in our hearts.

Trying to stay busy and as focused as I could manage this week. Finishing customer quilts, a little Christmas shopping and finishing three quilts for Christmas gifting. The two Frozen quilts are almost finished for Emma and Katelyn.  A third quilt going to Texas. 
 Quilted with stars, blue backing, gold Glide and a wool batting
Binding is on

Updated this afternoon....
The label for Ty's Texas quilt
Pix of the Frozen Quilts
 Quilted with an easy heart and swirl pattern

Pink bindings, ready to be hand stitched down

When Beckie came by she gave me this towel she embroidered
If not for the bear tail it looks like it could be Crystal as a puppy!
  :0) thank you Beckie. I love you

 Wishing everyone Happy Holidays
and praying for a Peaceful New Year

Thank you for your warm comments, cards and emails about Crystal

for my Dutch family...
Vrolijk Kerstfeest en een Gelukkig Nieuwjaar!
