This beautiful quilt in loving memory of Dottie arrived unexpectedly in the mail yesterday from Anne Sullivan - well I say unexpected because it was a surprise but anyone who knows her also knows that such an act of kindness is no surprise at all. Read all about the back story and details of how she created this original design with her mad skills on todays Play Crafts post.
I immediately handed my phone to hubby and said "here take a picture of us" - so although it looks as though Chase is photo bombing this is actually his attempt to pose. There are a few folds from shipping which I will press out before hanging it proudly.
It's been two weeks since we said good bye and we are all adjusting slowing to life without her. Even though she was 14, she acted like she was two. Chase continues to struggle with being alone - here's a photo of them together - they were very different personalities but soulmates for nearly their entire lives.
This is another favorite picture - Dottie was not a shy snuggler and could not get close enough her her humans. Being surrounded by guys, she and I stuck together and I called her my Dot-ter (pronounced daughter). You can tell it's an old photo because none of us were grey!
I should be packing the car to head out to our Retreat this morning but I just had to stop what I'm doing and share a quick post. Proof positive that Quilty Friends are truly the best - not there was ever a doubt.
