A rough couple of weeks!

Hello! It's been a rough couple weeks around here. A co-worker passed away while on the job, another co-worker's daughter passed away, my car broke down, and my parent's dog is very sick. So that's why I haven't posted in a while.

While I was waiting in the hot waiting room a couple weeks ago for my car to be repaired, I started and finished this. It was a freebie from Sweet Pea Designs that an LNS kitted up for us for a meet and greet a couple years ago. It's called Lil Punkin. It's done on an unknown piece of Aida with DMC floss.

I stitched this quite a while ago and finally got it finished. The design is from Milady's Needle, Quaker Christmas Smalls, and is done in HDF silk 1 over 2 on New Castle (40 ct.) linen.

Remember the new book I purchased, The Proper Stitch? Well, I ordered the silks to do a project from it.

And I bought a couple charts - a LHN Christmas Ornament and Summer Stackers by Jeannette Douglas. Couldn't resist! I LOVE biscornus! I should take a picture of the basket full I have already made.

I now have 2 flower frogs! The first one is amber colored and sits in crystal bowl. They work for holding crochet hooks, too!

The next one my mom bought for me at Goodwill! It also sits in a crystal bowl. It holds My Favorite Dololly, too!

And finally, a couple pictures that should make anyone smile and brighten their day a little. They did for me! First is Jasper, who spent the night last Saturday night with me. What a wonderful smile!

And Allie just HAD to look outside! It was an extremely hot day and she didn't like the blinds being closed at all!

And Allie doesn't know it yet, but she's going to be getting a play mate! I'm adopting another American Eskimo, Kody, who is a toy Eskie. I will be going to pick him up some time on Labor Day weekend. I can't wait! I'll share a picture when I can.

Take care and stay cool!

Eskie smiles,
