Quaker Acorn--Last Finish of 2010

I put the final stitches in Quaker Acorn last night while watching the New Year's Eve shows on TV. This was a really fun stitch!

Stitched on 32 ct. Toasted Pumpkin linen from R&R

I want to thank all of you who posted on the passing of my Callie-girl. It's been a rough week, but I have peace knowing that she's no longer in pain or suffering. I know that many of you have walked this road and struggled with the same decision I struggled with. I still shed a tear every now and then, but I didn't cry myself to sleep last night, which is an improvement. Thank you for your care and concern.

Here's to a great 2011!!

Wonderful finish and so sorry to hear of your Callie. She will be waiting for you on the other side of the Rainbow Bridge.

Congrats on your last 2010 finish! Hope to stitch that acorn one of these days too.

I was so sorry to ready about your dear Callie's passing. I loved reading about how you adopted her. What a beautiful story! I've had to say goodbye to cat companions over the years, several to renal failure. It never gets easier but I've learned to focus on how grateful I am to have met, loved and cherished them while they were here. Have you heard of the poem, "Rainbow Bridge". I find it very comforting even though I can't read it without crying.

Thank you for leaving a comment on my blog. I look forward to following your blog.
