Now, you remember us modelling these rather lovely bandannas in our Christmas post? I told you then there was a story behind them.
Aren't they wonderful? They are really well made with nice clippy fastenings, and lovely designs on both sides. Cassidy better not think she can commandeer mine when she grows out of hers though!
But there weren't just bandannas in the parcel. There was something else very beautiful and special. Oskar's mum had created this beautiful cross stitch in memory of Oscar. It depicts a tree in autumn, winter, spring and summer and is so, so pretty. It is entitled "Four Seasons at Seven Fields", which is where Oscar spent many happy hours playing with his friends, splashing in the river, chasing squirrels, fetching balls and generally being a happy puppy, and where part of him lives on. Ma likes the way the summer is at the end of the pictures, as summer is a happy time when there is lots of new life. It reminds her that although Oscar is no longer with her and pa, there is new life in the shape of Cassidy and I.

A tribute to Oscar
Alive in our hearts forever
Isn't that a simply beautiful gift, and a lovely way to remember Oscar? We were all very touched by the gift. It has been hung with Oscar's photos and certificates and will be forever treasured. Thank you so very much Oskar and your dear mum and dad. We love you all lots.
