Clancy O'Shay, momma's little boy - July 4, 2005 - January 7, 2016
Where do I start? First I can't believe it's been a year since I last blogged. Stitching and dogs took a back seat to the yard. It seemed like I had a good start in the year but lost my ju-ju really early. I started work on a new koi pond for my yard in February. Lot's of planning and the actual building started in March. I didn't even get any koi in until May. And I put it to bed in November with still a ton of work to do and things still left to buy. What a huge money pit. And I don't even have a nice photo to share. :-( How did that happen?
I only have one finish to show - and that was from last week. Shepherd's Bush Goodness and Grace pin cushion. I made a start from that series on the pin keep also.
Isabelle and Benny sharing. :-)
I adopted another lab in September. I started fostering for Chicagoland Lab Rescue back in the summer and the fourth dog I fostered for them was Benny from Puerto Rico. I knew within 30 minutes of his being dropped of, I couldn't let him go. Isabelle loves him also so it's a huge plus.
My 2016 started out very sad. On the 7th of January my beloved pug Clancy died in a tragic accident while I was away on vacation. He will never be replaced and always remembered. It's been so hard without him. I love all my dogs but it was different with Clancy.
