FNWF, Girl 17

Hi everyone,

Did you get a chance to join in with FNWF?  It was a stitchy day at here at the cottage  all day Friday with a visit from my dear friend De.  De worked on some hand stitching while I worked on machine applique all day. I have 11 little baby items to do (including five dinosaurs) and I finally finished the last one. 

I've joined in the fun on Instagram with  Lori  from beeinmybonnet.  She is having a Christmas  quilty fun quiltalong.  There are 3 blocks out so far, so it's not too late to catch up if you would like to join in too.  This is the first block, a gingerbread house.

This is my second block,  I think it is called fresh cut tree. Who knew I would ever be able to use olive green fabric with pastel spots?!  This is why I hoard just never know!  The next block is a mug of cocoa but I haven't gotten that far yet.  Time for me to do some other work now.

My dear Girl 17 left me two weeks ago today.

She is one of those souls that all you have to do is look at her and you instantly feel a sense of calm.

Girl 17 will always be remembered as my hoarder. She kept all of her toys close.  I've been told she has been adopted by a lovely family for her forever home.  See the lion king toy in the foreground? It is no longer with us. My neighbour's old cattle dog visits me and she ate it :(

My last photo of her. She heard me talking to the lady on the phone about the plans for her and this is how I found her. *cry*   Happy life, my dear Girl 17!   xx debbie
