Sew Crafty Friday-Memorial Stones

Shereen at Waiting for Him hosts Sew Crafty Friday. 

If you have been following my blog for a while you may remember back last year when I posted about the loss of some beloved pets.  I had planned to make memorial stones for each one, but after completing the first one time got away from me and the project was set aside.  Last week I was able to make the stone for my cat and both stones have found their home in the “rose” garden.  We used a kit to create the stone, but I bought dog and cat theme buttons to decorate them.  I also printed out on the computer pictures of them that I placed under clear mosaic pieces.  I used stone stamps to ‘engrave’ their names.  Now we have the memorial I wanted for those valuable parts of our family that have passed away.







The kids used the leftover cement and a soap mold to make their own stones, but these serve as paperweights right now.

    What a wonderful idea. I have lost so many pets over the years that I would love to remember. They really are a part of the family, aren't they?

    Hmmm, very interesting. We never marked the graves at my parents' house for my pets. I wonder what I'll do for my kitty when the time comes. Thanks for sharing.
