Scrappy Cats and Around The World Bloghop

Forgive me for combining two posts into one.

I would have been sharing more kitties this week and I was also due to take part in the blog hop mentioned in the post title this Monday 15th. Sadly I can do neither.

On Monday evening last week we lost one half of our very best friends of 33 years (husband and wife) after a long battle with cancer. The last few weeks have been a horror time watching him cope with tremendous courage the pain and ravages that this disease brings upon the body and mind.

We have spent a lot of time over the past week with his wife and family, attended his funeral on Friday  and I have been unable to give any time to my quilting, my heart was just not in it. For those who were going to visit me for the blog hop please accept my apologies.  I had thought I could really try today and tomorrow to complete my kitties and to get together a good post for the "hop" but sorry,  just not able to do it. Even the kitties couldn't tempt me this week.
I hope you will understand.

My kitties will be back next week.
