Isn't it cute? It's got a basketweave stitch basket, embroidered flowers and even a bunny finger puppet inside. I had so much fun making it and I hope Grace loves it too ;0) It's going in the mail first thing Monday along with a postcard of Montreal and the other (very boring by comparison) heart square I knit before the inspiration struck.
And now some sad news. My husband's family cat, Shmootz, died very suddenly on Thursday morning. She's the younger of their two cats and just ...died. Stephen's dad was there when it happened. Apparently, she just fell to the ground and died. He figured she must have had some kind of heart attack.
The saddest thing is that Stephen and I can't even remember our last encounter with her. We were there on Monday, but don't remember seeing her. She must have been outside chasing spring bugs. She was a happy content kitty like the best of them and she will be terribly missed.
Go give your pet some extra love in Shmootz' memory.
