In Memory of Knitpurlgurl...

Those we love can never be
more than a thought apart,
for as long as there is memory,
they'll live on in the heart.
- Unknown Author
My friend, Karrie (knitpurlgurl), of the Knitpurlgurl Podcast, passed away yesterday morning.  The fiber community has lost a special light...her memory will live on through her patterns, Tuesday RAP (random act pattern) day, and our wonderful memories.  There is a KAL in her ravelry group. Please pray for her family and friends.

Pool Time

Sadie loves water!! When not in the pool though she's looking for an escape. Hope this doesn't last long...I hate seeing her so shaky/skittish. For those of you who do rescues you can chime in here!:)
