munire kirmaci’s oh-so-elegant dual salt and pepper
we had a terrible health scare with nestle, our beloved bernese mountain dog on monday, and this week was one of the worst i have ever had. the vet first thought he had cancer but after the test results were examined by a pathologist they called (today) and reversed their grim diagnosis. he is feeling much better and we remain cautiously optimistic about his health. while all this was happening i was a complete wreck. we’ve had him since he was six weeks old and he is the closest thing to a child that we have — it might sound ridiculous but it’s the truth! anyway, while i was falling apart this week, unbeknownst to you, some extremely encouraging emails and kind comments floated in from many of you reading out there. i cannot explain how gently these small gestures lifted me up during a very brief but extremely dark period of time. even though you had no idea, you have helped me so much, and i thank you enormously for your continued interest and feedback.
i can’t believe how lucky i am to have made friends all over the world who are an active part of the weaving of this beautiful quilt, made of words and pictures, here on this site. thank you all so much for coming over, even if it’s just for a minute. and please! stay tuned for next week’s delicious tidbits of art, craft and design. good stuff coming, including a stoney end of week round up, a miniview with a terrific crafter and a great let’s chat! with a very skillful painter!
