Almost Christmas

Wow, I did not realize how long it had been since I posted. After my last post I had declared that I was going to spend the month of December working on my Friendly Felines. After finishing my last small...

that is what I have been doing. But the holiday preparation has really been taking it's toll on me. I am happy to say that I am much closer to being ready for the holiday than I've been in previous years. All the shopping is done, just have to wrap. But the time available for stitching has been lacking and I have not gotten much done.

Additionally, my year is ending the way it began. We had to put our cat to sleep last weekend. We adopted her 4 years ago. She had been abused and was about 8 years old. She started failing at the beginning of this year, and last weekend she just really took a turn for the worst. We gave her the best home we could and as much love as possible for the 4 years we had her. She went from a scared and timid cat, to a relaxed animal who knew she was safe in her human's home. So although I am very sad she is gone, I feel we gave her the best years of her life.

Not everything keeping me from stitching has been sad or unfun. We went to a friend's 50th birthday party.

Amature MMA Fighting.

Then to my cousin's 40th birthday party.

Hope everyone has a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
