MY BLOG is MY VOICE !
With my sharing of this horrid episode here in our world was not for adulation or for money.
Just in the hope that it will help another poor sweet soul somewhere… somehow.
Thank you all so much for thinking I am some kind of angel.
I am not. I have my moments just like the rest of you I am sure.
I also do not like to look at those sad and horrible pics on the help animals ads on TV or emails anymore than the next person.
Breaks my heart so bad I am no good for rest of day.
Same with the sweet innocent faces of starving and sick babes, children and others of this world.
We do donate to help others in many ways and to charity organizations.
We had to pay out of pocket 200 dollars for LizaJane’s care.
Vets, were 2, did not charge any office or such fees.
This was just for the blood work and the cremation fee only.
As with human medical cares, costs are high.
It was OUR CHOICE to go this route instead of calling County Animal Control.
We are not rich or even well off, just working class folks.
We are blessed to have a roof over our heads, food for our nourishment and clothes on our backs.
Can also enjoy a few extras.
When the ugly knocked on our door and hearts we had to answer the call.
I was not in this alone my sweet tenderhearted DH is my partner.
This was one of those “What would Jesus do?” moments or any decent human being for that matter!
You do not have to be a religious person to know right from wrong or be compassionate.
Selfishly we so wanted LizaJane to be our next miracle pup!
Pictured her healthy and loving, running around the house.
Broke my heart to lose that dream just as much as to see her poor starved 30 pound body go peacefully to sleep.
Thanks to my regular readers and followers for hanging in with me!
I am so looking for some sunshine in our life again!!
Now I promise to get back to my sewing and such!
Creating with fabric and thread feeds my soul , helps heal my heart an also keeps me sane!!
Here is one of my newest projects.
My Fall Blooms Runner!
Using my GO! Cutter with the GO! 2 inch strip die and the GO! Rose of Sharon die.
I used sixteen 2” X 10”strips of alternating fabrics, sewing them all together with a ¼ seam.
Pressed all the seams open. This helps when you have so many seams close and plan to quilt each one.
I sandwiched the top, batting and backing .
Quilted on each side of the seams using a pretty Fall color variegated thread.
Next used the Rose of Sharon GO! die cutting these out of fabric with Heat n Bond pressed on.
2 large flowers
3 medium flowers
4 large leaves
4 small leaves
3 medium circle centers
Decided on my placement and pressed them all down.
Next I buttonhole stitched the design through all the layers using black thread on top with the variegated thread in bobbin.
It is pretty on back to doing this.
It is a technique I learned from Pat Sloan.
Trimmed up my runner and using black 2 inch strips I made my binding, sewed it on.
Fast, easy and simple along with I think appealing!!!
If you do not have a Go! Cutter you could still make this using rotary cutter and free hand drawing or tracing your flower shapes.
I have two more ‘Fallish’ projects to share before I head on into Christmas ones.
Yes I said it..Christmas !! YIKES!!!
Time is running out fast on us… best we get busy!!!
No idea why the above post came out double spaced this time!!!!
