I stubbornly cling to the belief that this winter is going to end and that spring is going to burst forth in all its glory! This little tulip quilt is a bright, happy reminder of that even though it's dark, gray and going to snow.
Here are the first 3 rows. See those colored squares between the tulip blocks? There are 190 of them in this quilt! Youzer! I just finished cutting them! Thanks to everyone who has written to encourage me through this tough time in my life. I really appreciate you! I was feeling pretty good this morning and then my daughter called and said her dog, Daisy, had died today. Daisy was a beloved family dog that Gina has had since she was a tiny puppy. She was 14 which is old for a big dog. Here is a photo of her 7 years ago when Austin was in junior high. He's in college now.
Here's a photo of Daisy this last Christmas. Wasn't she sweet? She was a good sport:
We knew that she was old and not going to be around much longer but it still hurts. I hope she and Charlie are playing together somewhere. Charlie loved Daisy. We all did. I thought about not blogging about Daisy but this is my life right now. I know followers are dropping away from the "negative old lady" blog. Thanks to those who are staying.Thank you--love you all!
