Last night was simply terrible...

Lst night around midnight I had to put my sweet sweet Meiko cat to sleep. She shattered her ankle in a freak accident when a middor fell on her while she was sleeping in her hiding spot. She was 15 years old and would not have survived the extensive surgery that she would have needed to have to get her ankle back into shape to possibly walk again. She also has a very low threshold for the medications used to keep her sleepy for surgical reasons. Another reason..

*sigh* *cry* I just can't believe that she is gone. She was my baby kitty that I have had since she was a bitty kitten. She's all gone.

Cleo in the Glimmer Mist


I must apologize for now blogging until now. Life has been absolutely stir crazy and upside down. It has felt like if it could go wrong, it has. Oh well, life goes on and we will persevere, right? :)

I thought that I would share with you a wall hanging that I made of Christian's cat, Cleo. Pattern paper is Basic Grey, chipboard is Fancy Pants, Queen and Co. Felt Fusion flower trim, and a whopping 14(!!!) shades and color of my beloved Glimmer Mist! Yes, 14!

Thank you so much for your understanding during my absence and also for looking at sweet Cleo!

All my best,
