Quirion Fur baby 1

A good friend of mine that lives in Maine as several boys. One of them, Todd is married to Melissa. Just after Debbie returned to Maine from the CQI retreat here in Colorado, Todd and Melissa's home burned down taking their two fur babies as well. At CQI we decided to shower them with special handmade ornaments for Christmas. I made two ornies..... one of each fur baby and am also working on two small wall hangings for them. One is a wedding pic printed on cotton which I will bead. I framed it in CQ and will embellish it. The second one is a few special pics of all the fur kiddos they have had. I am stitching the "silkies" of them down to a batik background I have stamped with paw prints. I will then bead or trim up around each picture and quilt the rest. Got a little ways to go, but wanted to share this project. Tis close to my heart.

You will surely touch their hearts with the pictures. You are doing something really special for them.

I can't imagine losing your home and your pets. Must be just heartbreaking.

What a loving and beautiful gift you are giving these fortunate people. I can't imagine what they are going through. We lost our beautiful Golden a few months ago and your ornament captures their beauty. I will always miss my girl Missy.
