Comfort in the Mail

Today I received comfort in the mail.  I have been missing Seamus terribly these past weeks and continue to find things of his that have to be put away.  And then.........this came!!!

LeeAnna from "Not Afraid of Color" made this beautiful art quilt in honor of  Seamus. It has touched me so much and I absolutely love it.   LeeAnna had a black standard named Cole; Cole passed from cancer this past July.  LeeAnna is the one person I know who not only understands how poodles think but can write about it REALLY well.  My husband and I both enjoyed reading about Cole's Capers and Commandments check out one of my favorites here

Look at the art quilt-- I love how LeeAnna incorporated Seamus' last Christmas photo and then filled it in with pencil and ink.
Anyone who knew Seamus understood the balls in the border (his favorite toy).  I am particularly enchanged with the wonderful hearts--especially the one framing Seamus.  Isn't it wonderful?  The bling "adore" on his necklace just says it all.
The backing tells a different story--one of the future.  LeeAnna and I live in adjoining states and hope to get standard poodle siblings this spring.  It would be wonderful to share anecdotes, not to mention getting the poodle kids together!  The idea of a puppy this spring has really been sustaining me during this dreary winter.

Thank you LeeAnna!  You made my day, week, and month!!!  Hugs and hugs!!

Oh my word that is AMAZING - what a treasure. She did a superb job on that. I hope you two can get siblings, what fun would that be!!!

What an extra thoughtful gift to remember your boy. I was so sorry to read of his passing. Now I'm glad to read that you will be welcoming a puppy this spring. (Hugggs).

LeeAnna is a wonderful friend and a great artist! I love that I found her blog and yours, it is all so nice to have such friends online to converse with and share the good and the not so good!

I am so sorry about your loss. I also have a black standard and know "how they think" My Maggie is 10 years old and still acts like a puppy. I can't even imagine what you are going through. My heart goes out to you. Love from Vancouver, WA
