Closure

I didn't accomplish much of anything yesterday.  I ran to the Post Office for stamps and to WalMart for Nightmare's prescription.  I think I mentioned awhile back that Nightmare has had a heart problem since he was a year old.  Cardiomyopathy.  Our vet didn't think he would make it to 10 but here he is, almost 17 and still full of spit and vinegar!

After that, my dad was kind enough to go with me to our vet's office to pick up Simba's ashes.  Simba now has his rightful place on my dresser next to Garfield and Francis.  3 kitties at Rainbow Bridge. 

Picking up the ashes makes it seem so final but it really doesn't give me closure.  There's no closing off the wonderful memories and love that I have for them. 

I did manage to pull a few things for my cat purse:

This looks like nothing more than a mess right now but little by little, it'll be a pretty piece of wearable art.

The fabric sheets that I printed the kitties on is a little thin so I want to add piece of cotton fabric behind it.  I'll trim that up when I sew it down.

I'm sorry for the loss of your Simba.I remember how devastated I was when our old 17 year old cat died.He had cardiomyopathy too.Apparently caused by bad teeth.We clean our young cat's teeth now, and they are going ok.They can do so much more for animals now can't they?
I am glad you have been able to take your mind off your loss with some makings.

I've been thinking of you, Pam. Looks like you're starting work on a new project and still keeping me in the dark as to your wedding mystery.My SBS blocks are on kind of thin fabric, and I've been wondering whether I should use some fabric under them but am worried the threads will show through. Any advice? The May block is on my blog. Hugs.
