Lenten Banner #2

Last Wednesday I spent the day at home because our dog was too ill to be left alone. During the times when he was asleep I finished the second Lenten banner. It was a good distraction - enough to occupy the mind but not requiring as much concentration as cross-stitch, which I certainly would have messed up. When my husband got home from work we took Shadow to the vet and let him go in peace. Definitely not a high point of our year, but the vet assured us that nothing more could have been done for him, so we take a little comfort in that.

Anyway, here is a photo of banner #2. Not sure when the other two will be done. We had a houseful of college students this past weekend, so I got no crafting done at all. I will have to get together with my cohort and get to work.


  1. I'm sorry for loss of your pet. It sure is heartbreaking let them go, but at least we have our good memories always. When pain gets easier to bare, sorrow changes to memories...Hope you can share your loss with your DH and with others :(

  2. I'm sorry to hear about your dog, but you will have many happy memories of him. My two dogs died last year at the age of 16. After a few months, we visited two different animal shelters and got two more dogs. We are very happy with them now.

  3. So sorry for your loss of your pet the Lenten Banner is really nice.
