RIP Shezzam Brookby Star

Today has been a truly awful day. We had to put our beautiful baby doll to sleep. We took Brooke for a check up a week ago today and had some blood tests done as she had lost a lot of weight. We thought it was just an age thing - however it turned out she had a tumour in her liver. We planned to just keep a really good eye on her as she was still doing all the things she should be - eating, drinking etc, however yesterday morning she started vomiting bile and blood and it just progressed over the 24 hour period. Her dad held her in his arms while she was put to sleep. Now she is free from the pain and I am sure is happy to be reunited with our beautiful man Nitro. May the two of them run through the fields beyond the Rainbow Bridge happily until such time as we meet them again. We love you Brooke more than you will ever know. RIP my darling Angel.

Block 5 completed

When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter . .

Block 4

The children were nestled all snug in their beds . . .

Block 3

The stockings were hung by the fire with care . . .


Happy Easter everyone. I hope you are having a fun filled long weekend - with lots of chocolate:). I have managed to get the next three of my blocks completed with the hand embellishing which I told myself I needed to to before I started on Block 5. I am really pleased with how they are turning out, however the "Letter to Santa" on block 2 has caused me some grief to say the least and I have given in and am going to buy a fabric pen and write instead of trying to embroider the lettering - this hasn't been completed yet. We have had a nice weekend so far, I had a nice time catching up with a friend from Auckland on Friday afternoon and then yesterday we went for a drive in the Z3 for the day to catch up with some more friends and family. Today a friend is having a family celebration for her 60th birthday which starts at lunchtime and lasts until we decide we have had enough. With the change in daylight savings time I was wide awake at 6am so got up and did the salads and things I needed to. I have walked my baby girl and an now about to embark on Block 5. I hope the rest of Easter weekend treats you all well. Take care. Loreen
