Warming Grace

I've been on a real bunny kick lately with Easter and all. I even managed to work a bunny into my square for the Warming Grace project. See?


Isn't it cute? It's got a basketweave stitch basket, embroidered flowers and even a bunny finger puppet inside. I had so much fun making it and I hope Grace loves it too ;0) It's going in the mail first thing Monday along with a postcard of Montreal and the other (very boring by comparison) heart square I knit before the inspiration struck.

And now some sad news. My husband's family cat, Shmootz, died very suddenly on Thursday morning. She's the younger of their two cats and just ...died. Stephen's dad was there when it happened. Apparently, she just fell to the ground and died. He figured she must have had some kind of heart attack.

The saddest thing is that Stephen and I can't even remember our last encounter with her. We were there on Monday, but don't remember seeing her. She must have been outside chasing spring bugs. She was a happy content kitty like the best of them and she will be terribly missed.

Go give your pet some extra love in Shmootz' memory.

Go on...

  9. Your squares look great. I LOVE that bunny one...so cute!

    Sorry to hear about Shmootz. It's always sad when a beloved pet dies. I am not looking forward to that day when my Tinker Belle dies. She's 8 years old now (human years, not sure what that is in cat though).

  10. Sorry about Shmootz. We had a guinea pig that did in a similar way...OK one minute, gone the next. Very sad. Your square is amazing...totally puts mine to shame!!!!! You could make a whole cube out of squares like that, stuff it and it would make a fantastic baby present. You're so creative! Kate (my daughter) was reading over my shoulder and she said "Wow". You were "wow-ed" by a twelve year old...you must be cool!

  16. Anny, I just got over here (been sick as you know) and I love the squares! You are amazing! I can't wait to see it for real!

    I am really sorry about the cat; losing a pet is so hard. I'll be giving the dogs some really big hugs and kisses for Shmootz.
