I wish I had a fun update for you this week. But I don’t- this week I had to say goodbye to my awesome dog, my sidekick and shadow, Ben.

If you’ve followed me for a while, you know that Ben was always by my side in (and out of) my studio. He would lay under me while I sewed and catch stray threads with his big old head.

I could write so much more about Ben and what he meant to me, but I would just end up in a puddle of tears. So, instead I’ll leave you with some of my favorite pictures of him over the years in hopes that you can see how great he was and how much he was loved.

Thank you to all of my friends on Instagram and Facebook who have shared their condolences. Your thoughtfulness did not go unnoticed.

I do have some projects that I’ve been working on to share with you, but that will be another post. I hope you all have a wonderful week, and I’ll write soon.



  1. Lorinda,
    Sweet Ben followed you everywhere around the house and when you weren’t there, and I was, he followed me everywhere. I kind of loved that devotion. He is running free and without pain. Even though we will miss him and his personality, we have that to be happy for.
    I love you, Mom

  2. How very sad for you and your family. Ben is going to leave a big hole in your lives, but you can fill it with all your wonderful memories and great photos!
