Joke for the HoE XMas Birds Christmas Ornament Exchange. I really love it. This is Winter Song by Primrose Needleworks from the JCS 2011 Christmas Ornament Issue. I had it on my "to do" list, but am thrilled to remove it now that I have this perfect one from Joke. I am going to love displaying this every year - thank you again Joke :-)
Yesterday I drove him to his vet and he was euthanized. It had to be done. He was miserable and not ambulatory. I spent four days syringe feeding him food and water. The meds he had to take were tough on him. He gave up. He had no chance. We spent Sunday saying goodbye to him. I stayed with him while he passed. He passed with grace and was so beautiful in his death. He simply lay peacefully, his eyes dilated and my vet whispered "I love you Gig" and then "He's gone now." Many kisses later, I left. Tears came later, I know he is at peace now. He will come home by way of ashes in a week or two. We are very sad here. This was very sudden. I really miss my little boy who always slept tucked up against my hip in our bed. I miss his deep throaty voice. I just plain old miss him.

Finally, a day when I am home, it is not raining and it is daylight out... I finished this ornament off last weekend and now I can share it. It took me a few months of off and on stitching to get this one done... but am thrilled with the results.
Peace on Earth

It's a cloudy morning following a very rainy day. Not sure when the sun will re-emerge, so going to have to go with this photo for now... Finished up an ornament I started about a year ago when Margaret gifted me with her used chart when she visited for Celebration of Needlework in 2011... I finally dug out the right beads for it earlier this week, and was able to get this finish done last night... I just love this one.
