Whoops!

ORT fail. Many apologies...your fearless TUSAL leader thought the New Moon was today! This is a little late but I'm here with some rather sparse ORTs to show. It looks like a nice full jar but really, compared to my last few months of ORT photos these are lousy!


Plus, this is a really craptastic snap but I wasn't too worried because I'm late enough as it is. Leave a comment on this post to let us know you have posted your ORT report for June...you will receive an extra entry in the TUSAL giveaways. Those of you who posted this month to last months report might want to post again here as well.

As many of you have noticed, I have been taking a little break from blogging. Thank you all for the emails and comments inquiring as to my whereabouts. I didn't mean to be gone so long! Life hasn't been the same these last few months. Losing Sheba was such a heartbreak, she was such a big part of our lives. How can one little soul leave such a giant hole? Dash and I have been trying to cope, sometimes not very well. I am hopeful the worst is over and sunnier days are ahead. 

Thank you for visiting my blog today!

I'm sorry that you're having such a difficult time. I've lost two cats in the last year. It'll get better.

Lana said...

You were late, but worth the wait! LOL, I'm so sorry to hear of your loss! ::hugs:: Those little people in fur coats can leave some huge holes in our hearts, can't they! I still get a bit teary when I see pics of my old dalmation, and he died 13 years ago!! It truly is like losing a member of the family. Hang in there and come back when you can, we'll all be here waiting!

I understand your need to take a little break, but it's wonderful to have you here for a quick post. No, your photo is NOT craptastic! Thank you for a chuckle too!

Margaret said...

I forgot all about the TUSAL for this month. Busy times for me. I will post next Monday though -- made a reminder for myself. Sorry you are missing Sheba so much. I so totally understand. :(

Loretta said...

I've been MIA blogwise for the past couple of months and missed your post about Sheba. I'm sorry for your loss. She was a beautiful looking dog.

I realized this AM that I posted on your TUSAL report from last month and that you hadn't posted for awhile. I hope things get better for you.

I posted my report on Monday - http://lorettasstitchingblog.blogspot.ca/2012/06/june-ihsw-and-tusal.html

Take care!

I've posted my ort report...

Sending you lots of hugs, it's never easy to lose anyone we love, including our furbabies.

I know it's difficult but try to take some comfort in your wonderful memories of her and how much she means to you!

Lesleyanne said...

Sorry to hear you are having a tough time. I am going to post my ort report today.

Nicola said...

Hi, sorry you are having such a rough time. I know exactly how you are feeling having lost our beloved dog this year too. I posted an ORT report here http://stitch-nicola.blogspot.co.uk/

SueH said...

I’m not surprised that you’re still feeling the effects of losing Sheba. They become such a big part our lives and it’s like losing a family member. All I can say is, when you’re feeling down try and remember the fun times you spent together, it worked for me.

I was beginning to think that maybe you were on holiday when the Tusal didn’t appear on Tuesday. You must have been getting the New Moon mixed up with the Sumer Solstice and Longest Day.

Here’s my TUSAL
but I’ve had a complete disaster with my stitching this month.


Happy Stitching!

Hope the two of you are starting to feel better. It takes time when there's a loss such as this. Those furbabies really work their way into our lives.

I totally understand losses like that. We lost our Haley four years ago on the 15th and I still get teary eyed when I think about that day. Take care and come back when you can. We'll be here!

So sorry to hear that you're having a tough time losing Miss Sheba, I'm so sorry for your loss and I hope that you start to feel more like yourself soon.

Lianne said...

Having lost my furbaby, Muffin, last August I can definately relate and know that their passing leaves a massive void. My thoughts are with you and I will hope for sunnier days for you.

Minnie said...

It takes a while but things will get better, hang in there. Here is my TUSAL for June.

I'm sorry you're missing Sheba so much. My two dogs passed at 16 years old in the same month. We waited a few months, then rescued 2 more dogs from 2 different animal shelters and have had them for 2 years now. Pets are wonderful!

I have missed reading you.... even though I don't comment much... the ORT jar shows that you are having time for at least a bit of gentle stitching during these tough days for you... take care...
Hugz

Chris said...

I have been missing you and was wondering if the loss of dear Sheba was breaking your heart. Sheba sounds like she was so fabulous.
Wishing you peace.

Darla said...

I even have a list of this year's dates taped to my computer desk, and still I'm three days late this month!! But mine, pathetic though it is, is posted.

Catherine said...

Sending many hugs...
I am really late and haven't posted a TUSAL...then again, with my lack of stitching time, I don't think anyone would notice the few measly threads I have added!

Bonnie Brown said...

Sorry for your loss :(

My Tusal is up

Sending hugs and love your way and hoping you feel better soon. I know it's hard losing a pet as I have lost many over the years.

Lynn said...

Just joined your blog, and I am so sorry to hear about your loss. Our animals are our children and when you lose one it is devasting. I hope you feel better soon. I can't wait to look around your blog. Hugs, Lynn

Rhona said...

I managed to post my TUSAL!
We lost our dog over a year ago and still miss her terribly. They really are more than just pets, they are part of the family. Hope you're feeling better soon.

Oh my dear, my heart hurts for you :( It took us a long time to not cry over our little furbaby passing. I still think of her often and it has almost been a year.

Your ort jar looks lovely and not a crap snap!

Ziggyeor said...

I finally got my TUSAL post in.
http://ziggyeor.blogspot.com/2012/06/tusal.html

I feel for ya Daffy. This marks a year that I lost my FiL and my pet ferret Pratchett. I think it was harder on me to lose Pratchett as my husband and BiL had gone to FL for the funeral and arrangements and I had stayed here because of the new job.
