almost done


I heading into the home stretch of Alpha Sheep. Just a couple more days work and I'll be finished with all three. It's a really large piece since I did mine on 32 count linen. I would have used 36 count but as I had a perfect size and color of the 32 count laying around how could I not use it. :-) A lot of people have been commenting that they would like to do this piece together like I have. I recommend it, each piece was super quick (took me less than a week each) and the colors are great! Sorry though, I have already traded away my three charts.

On Saturday the pugs where sitting in the together in the perfect group. So I took a quick photo. Then I thought, since the are behaving so nice, why don't I try for a Christmas card photo? So I put them in this years selected accessory and gave it a go. Even though they took some good shots, them being on the couch just wasn't working for me so I tried outside. I couldn't get them to sit close to each other. :-) And I didn't like the background so I ended up with a ton of outtakes. I'll try again later in the week on a more neutral background.

The pugs are so well behaved to sit there long enough for pictures! Alpha Sheep is looking wonderful. I love all the colors in it.

Your portrait of the pugs is just so adorable, it made me smile. Your Alpha Sheep is coming along nicely, congrats.

The little pug "eyebrows" seem to be asking, "Mommy, why are doing this to us!" Your stitching looks great!

Your pugs are just too adorable! I love their outfits :-) I wish my 2 dogs would sit together but ever since my first dog passed away Ana hasn't taken to any other dog the way she did to Kobe. As soon as Kyle (new dog) goes to sit next to her she gets up and sits/lays somewhere else...atleast they don't fight.
BTW - great finish!

Your dogs are so neat. They must love to have their picture taken. Have you ever taken them to have their picture taken with Santa? Mine Boston is scared to death of Santa. The first year she jumped right out of his arms. Now she does it, but is shaking the entire time.

As always your stitching looks great.
