and the worst of times… this week marked the 14th anniversary since 9.11, a day, just like Pearl Harbor that will live in infamy. I am sure that we will always remember exactly where we were and what we were doing.
My vet, the only vet that Sylvester and AlleyCat (and others) had known, lost his battle with cancer. He had a way with AlleyCat…and she actually behaved for him, believe it or not?! If you knew Dr. Fenner, this caricature captures him purr~fectly. R.I.P. and I am sure you are at the Rainbow Bridge playing with all those cats and dogs that you compassionately sent there over the years.
We also saw the year anniversary of losing Beth Robertson…
and Elizabeth (of Needlepoint Now) proposed a toast to Beth with her favorite wine “14 Hands Merlot” after the first day of class with The Embellishment Squad…which got me thinking about better times.
Notice that we were rather busy adding to our stash that day (the open spots on the wall should be the hint)
It is so difficult to capture 4 days of stitching bliss and the best of times in just a few pictures… even though I do have more than just a few!
Tony was working on this beautiful Shorebirds canvas with Cindy.
Tony’s office and he just goes off and creates a stitch! How does he do that?
Explaining something to us…
the 4 teachers that make up The Embellishment Squad…
passing on more of his wealth of stitching!
My background stitch is developing… and BTW this was Meredith’s stitch!
Tony working after hours…he never stops!
and stay tuned as there is some mischief developing…
AlleyCat working hard supurrvising!
