    Great news and sad news........

    Hi friends, I have some sad and some good news to share....... To start of with the sad news......Our 11,5 old black lab passed away last week in her sleep. She just died on us, she has not been sick for a day and we found her dead when we woke up. My heart is broken en I miss her so much it almost hurts. We have a brown lab as well and she is 8,5 years old, she is very sad and kept looking for her buddy for days in a row........

    The great news is.........next spring I will fly out to St. Louis again to spend time with Jean!!!! We will be quilting my 365 challenge quilts and we will hang out and have fun. I can not tell you all how much I am looking forward to this trip. This is something that keeps me going on the 365 blocks. (Last week I did not sew at all because I could not get my mind to it, but I will pick it up this week)
    We will be having so much fun again, Jean and I!! I feel blessed that I have met her a few years ago, we have become great friends!!!!

    Here are some pictures, my dear dog Diva a week before she died, and my challenge so far!
    Thanks for taking a look.
    Have a great day everybody

    Klasien, I am so sorry you lost your dear fur buddy. It is so hard to lose them and what a shock to have her pass away in her sleep! But I am looking forward so much to your visit, and I need to improve my quilting skills to quilt those beautiful quilt tops you are creating! Hope some of our local folks can set aside some time to visit with Klasien while she is here. March 27 to April 8?, 2017!

      Klasien, I'm so sorry to hear you lost your Diva. It's so hard to lose a member of the family.

      Your 365 quilt is just gorgeous! I hope I get to meet you next Spring when you are at Jean's. Hugs.....

        Sending hugs. Lost our little buddy a few months ago and the pain is still there. Hugs to you.
        Keep a couple minutes free so we can meet again in the Spring.

          So sad that you lost your furry kid, but how wonderful that she passed without a long painful illness. Nothing worse than having a beloved animal in pain and they can't tell you where it hurts.

              So sorry to hear about Diva. What a beautiful photo of her. It is so hard when they pass in their sleep but a blessing she didn't suffer from illness.
              How wonderful you get to spend more time with Jean and hopefully others. You guys can have your own personal retreat! Love your quilt blocks too!

                So sorry to hear of the loss of your furkid....Diva was a gorgeous lab and very true to the breed...I find labs today have much longer snouts than they should. Diva was sure a beautiful dog. Sending ((((HUGS)))) your way. xox

                So exciting though to be visiting Jean!! Can't wait to hear all about it!

                  Sorry to hear about your lovely furbaby. I know how much you will miss her.

                  Your quilt blocks are absolutely beautiful. I love the colours and the pattern. Well done.

                  Wish I could join you in Missouri, but it is just too far for a day trip...

                    I am sorry for the loss of your sweet and beautiful Diva. It is so hard to loose a precious fur baby.

                    Your quilt blocks are beautiful and have a very soothing look to them.

                      Two beautiful pictures!!!
                      My heart is hurting for you friend... losing a pet is one of life's most difficult times Diva is truly georgous!! I quilt each week with 2 Labs... Golden and Black... Amber and Ruby! Ruby is almost 14 and greying... Amber is what her owner calls the dumb blonde.... Neither are dumb, it's a personality thing My friend Dawn is a longarmer with talent and opens her home to us every Tuesday so I'm very attached to having a Lab by my side while sewing and "stepping over" everytime i get us to press something
                      Thrilled for you being able to get together with Jean... you are soul mates and I hope some other M* people can touch base with you as well...
                      Hugs, my friend... Barbara / GB

                              Jean, would it be possible to plan a day and a place to meet while Klasien is here? I am a day away and would be willing to make the trip to spend face to face time with you. Maybe a library or bank has a conference room we could use?
