Thanks for all the comments you left on my last post. I am still very sad about the loss of Giggsy two weeks on, so your kind thoughts are much appreciated.
For a long time I have liked Pineberry Lane's Beloved Companion Memorial sampler. I knew I would stitch it one day for one of my kitty crew, but I seriously didn't think it would be anytime soon.
I managed to get a bit of time on it today while the baby was napping, and along came Meg (Giggsy's sister) and rubbed her head all over Giggsy's sampler. :-) I didn't mind a bit since it was for her brother.
Anyway, here is where I am at -
Annabelle is doing great. She has been smiling lots lately, and on Sunday she smiled at me without me having to prompt her. That was a great moment! She has been away on her first holiday (to New Plymouth to see family) and has grown 5 centimetres in 3 weeks. Yikes! My sister crocheted Annabelle the gorgeous 1920s style hat in this photo (my sister has only taught herself to crochet and managed to produce this!).
I received an email from Melissa at Words and Blooms today to let me know that I had won one of her blogaversary giveaways. Thank you Melissa. It really made my day. If you haven't discovered her blog already, there is lots of sampler and kitty eye candy so go check it out!
