Thanks everyone for all your kind words, emails and comments. It's been a tough time but we are back in caretaker mode with Paddie in doggie hospice here. She is stable and on medications that are keeping her comfortable. She seems always near me and I am giving her a lot of petting and kisses. I am hoping that she will pass quietly at home but we are prepared to do whatever we have to so that she doesn't have to feel pain.
I'm posting this picture of some Victory Dogs that I found while reorganizing some of my linens. I've also been reading Sue Reich's book, World War II Quilts, which I highly recommend. I received the book while working on Nana Betty's birthday-turned-memory quilt and found it so inspiring.
If you are interested in this era, you may want to check out Dawn's post last week which I found fascinating: http://cottagestateofmind.blogspot.com/2010/07/from-attic-wwii-letters.htmlStay cool and have a great day...
Hugs to all!
