retail therapy

It's been a sad weekend for our family - our beloved dog Amira passed away on Friday. My sister has a lovely tribute here.

My darling husband took me to Spotlight for a little retail therapy on Saturday afternoon and I picked up this gorgeous printed fabric and some others to match.
I am going to use these for a quilt for my new cousin who is due to arrive in early December. I had originally picked up this fabric:
but I love the jungle animals much more!!

On our retail therapy trip I also picked up some other fabrics, but this is all I can show (for now!) of what some of them have become...

Thanks for your wishes Simone and Roseanne. I am sure it will be a long while before I can think of Amira and not be sad, but I have so many wonderful memories of her which is what counts. She had a happy life and we were so lucky to have her in our lives for so long.
