Well, we're off & running with the new year. I've been pretty good at keeping up with what I had planned for the daily trip to the studio, except the weather has gotten in the way! The cold, coupled with the wind, has prevented me from being in the studio for any length of time due to the fact the wind has forced cold air up under the studio & my feet have gotten way too cold! But, I've been getting things done! I've been working on those leader/ender scrap quilts & have made a nice dent in 2 of the projects. I'll post some pictures when they get to the finished stage.
I have a sad note to add today. Yesterday we lost our beloved Duke. Poor little guy was almost 16 years old, blind & has been going down hill the last couple of months. He really took a nose dive night before last with a seizure. He came out of it scared & crying most of the night. Yesterday morning he went into another seizure & it just kept on. I hurriedly got dressed & got him to the Vet just as they opened up for the day. There was no alternative but to have him put to sleep. It was a pretty tough day yesterday. He's been my constant companion 24/7 for the last 7 or 8 years. What's funny is that he was my hubby's dog, but he chose to be with me in the truck the last years I was driving & retired when I did almost 2 years ago. Now he's in doggy heaven with his sister, Candy, that we lost just over 3 years ago. I sure do miss him & her, but we still have the purr girls to keep us in fur!
