A Much Loved Ginger Beast

You knew this pattern was coming, didn’t you? I just had to wait until I didn’t tear up every time I thought about Ginger. She passed away in June at 14 years-old.

Ginger was a rescue puppy who came to us around 6-8 months of age. She was part Lab and part Beagle, so we called her a Leagle. She was a crazy beast who brought lots of love, energy, and adventures to our house. And now I smile every time I spy her felt likeness.

    They fill our hearts and eventually break them. Thank the Lord for memories. I’ll remember my “Ginger Beasts thru the years when I make this.

    I shall make Ginger and put her on our local vets Christmas tree, come the time. They are never forgotten, always beside us in the wind or a passing shadow. We will all meet again when our time comes.

    Ginger will always be with you, of this I’m sure. The Egyptian Book of the Dead contains a phrase: To speak the name of the dead is to make them live again.

    Bless you all!

    Of all the beautiful felt projects you have so generously shared with us, surely this one is the most special. Thank you. I hope it comforts you to know there will be little felt Gingers on Christmas trees everywhere. Take care.
