just two more dogs

I decided to continue down the bottom of the piece and my goal is to finish the last two dogs by the time I go to bed tonight. They really take a long time and when I work on them I never see much progress. Then I'm going to put the piece up for a week or so. In the meantime, I'll work on my three mysteries, BoINK, Papillion Creations and Blackbird Designs as well as stitch the current Loose Feather. That should take a week or so then back to St. Reatham. I really want to finish this piece this year. I am saving the bunny in the lower left hand corner for last. Two years ago, when I was searching for a BAP to do, that little bunny is what put me over the edge to stitch this piece. I just think it's the cutest little thing, outrunning all those dogs. :-)

On Wednesdays I received my Hooked on Exchanging Christmas Ornament from Hazel in the UK. She sent me an ornament from this year's Just Cross Stitch Christmas issue. I love it and it was one of the ones on my list to stitch for me. She did an absolutely wonderful finishing job. And she sent along some goodies too! Thanks so much Hazel! I love it.

Aoife is getting around a little better at three days post op. The pain killers the vet sent me home with are really helping I'm sure and they are also helping keeping her quiet. And that is a huge help. By Monday I'm sure she'll be almost back to her old self.

Hi Margie, thanks for adding me to the blogs you follow. I'd love to add yours to mine. Your sampler is just stunning. The fabric color choice is wonderful. I don't know why I've never stitched a Long Dog design, I sure like them. Love your Pugs!
