my Etsy shop) to honor your dog!
A friend asked what I would do with all the quilts and sweaters I've made for Piccolo when she's no longer with me, putting it delicately. Would I have a hard time looking at them? The answer would be no. After Penny died, I thought that I would have a problem letting another dog wear her sweaters. I had Penny cremated wearing a sweater. Then, a few years ago, I let Piccolo, who is Penny's exact size, wear the sweaters. In this photo she's wearing a sweater that I knit for Penny, perhaps ten years ago. It's a sweet rememberance of the little dog that's no longer with me. Penny's memory is alive with me because I let another cherished creature wear her things. The same will happen with the quilts, although I have noticed that some of the early ones are now starting to show wear. Which is a perfect reason to keep sewing them!
