Thin red line

It’s been a difficult day, since we had to say goodbye to one of our sweet little pets this morning. I spent the afternoon with ‘Sunset’.

Just a little quilting here and there, and a little very simple embroidery.

The borders are pale jade green/aqua silk, and I’ve couched a thin red yarn (hand dyed) along the inner edge of the border.

Because sometimes peace is just a fine line.

    So sorry to hear of your friend’s passing. I once had a wonderful sympathy card for animals…but it applies to anyone. “Not gone…..just gone ahead.”
    Love your blog

      Thanks, Karen. That’s a nice line. I believe that the atoms that made up Vincent will become something else, as part of Nature’s recycling, so somewhere he will live on.

    That red line, like a heartbeat. Sewing…it’s the best medicine for any overwhelming

    My sympathies.

    Still, simplicity and a little handwork are both very soothing.

    It’s looking beautiful, Karen, both this post and the one before. I hope you’re feeling a little better after Vincent’s loss. I lost one cat last year and his sister four years ago and sometimes still fill up when I think of them. Hugs. x
