“Frost Moon”


Description from Lois D: On May 9th, 2013, Foxhill Designs Vt posted a beautiful FP titled "Moon Glow".
For me, it was a beautiful, poignant pick. Just that day, I had said 'see you later' to my dear little 11 year old Rat Terrier, "Frost Moon" (aka "Frostie") who passed away after a very sudden, brief battle with pancreatic cancer.
I have loved and lost many pets over the years, but his passing devastated me.
I so appreciated Foxhill's FP that day, because I couldn't bring myself to finish this one in his memory.
Then, on Sept. 1, 2013 Blooming Ideas posted a FP titled, "Bronze Frost", another beautifully designed pick which I decided was a good choice for the month of Frostie's birth :)
Thank you, ladies, for posting your beautiful FPs on Lima Beads. They 'spoke' for me on those days. One never knows how their artistry will touch another's life in some small, meaningful way :)
So, that's my long story and here is the FP dedicated to the memory of my "Frost Moon". Thanks for listening :)

    What a lovely tribute, Lois. It has been more than five years since I said goodbye to my first and favorite cat, and he still appears in my dreams sometimes. Thanks for sharing your story – - -

    What a gorgeous pick for such a wonderful memory, Lois! My dog will be 19 this year, and I know it will be very difficult too see her pass. But I know I will have wonderful memories of the many years we have been fortunate to have with her.

    Thank you, “CB” for your kind words and for telling us about your first cat. I think it’s really a comfort that he appears in your dreams sometimes. Our ‘kitties’ :) really have a way of weaving themselves into our lives and hearts, don’t they? So cute; I love cats!

    Wanda, oh my, your dear 19 year old dog has been with you for so long. What kind is she? They truly become part of our families, and when they pass they take a piece of our hearts with them. But, you are so right, they leave us with wonderful memories.

    Asia, thank you and it is so nice to be in such company as those on LB who – as you’ve said – have been there. So many caring people here makes it easy to share in times of joy and sorrow as well.

    A Truly Stunning pick! A wonderful dedication to Frostie. I’m so sorry for your loss. I lost my beloved Iko kitty of 12 years. We had to put her down due to her illness. I know what you mean about having loved and lost pets. My heart still hurts and my eyes well up with tears when think of her. Such a good beading buddy. I can image the grieving process you are going through. I’m move that a pick I did back in September touched you. You’re right we never know how what we do may end up affecting another in a meaningful way. Sorry I’ve been so sporadic of late…it may be my new norm…but I know the ladies will understand (men beaders too)

    Terri, it’s so nice to ‘see’ you; I’ve missed you!
    It’s so comforting to know others understand. I’m sorry to hear about your Iko :( I went to your blog and saw your beautiful photos of her. Such a gorgeous, long-haired kitty with beautiful, piercing eyes.
    Terri, you did indeed live up to your motto posted on your blog (paraphrase) ‘…to make someone smile or laugh everyday’ and I thank you for that!
