She is 5 months old...her breed is a Pointer. She is very energetic and requires at least 2 long walks a day and lots of playtime. We are so LUCKY to have her!

On the same 'dog' note...I finished all of those previously posted dog pieces....

Monthly Finish ~ Drawn Thread ~ JUNE

Hi All ~
Just a little behind in this Drawn Thread series I am doing. Finally finished JUNE and currently working on September. I'll have to 'catch up' with July and August. I started September because I liked the school house and since school just started here in Florida it just seemed appropriate!

Drawn Thread ~ Pocket Calendar Series ~ Aida ~ DMC supplemented with threads from kit.
(Please note these kits are being PIF'd within a group of stitchers from the 123Stitch MB.)

Here is what I had done so far in the series...I'm stitching them all on one large piece of fabric to be framed when finished!

This was a 'freebie' off the internet for St. Patrick's Day called Got Luck by Plum Street Samplers. (web addy is: http://plumstreetsamplers.typepad.com/)...the freebie is still there.

Dog Days

Good Friday Morning ~

It seems that lately all I've been stitching is doggie things ~ maybe because we are in the process of looking to add to our family by the way of a dog. We have been visiting the Humane Society but haven't found anything yet...but we are still looking!

Here is this weeks finish:

Button, Button....

Who's Got The Button! This was a fun and quick one to stitch. Found this 'older' chart in a markdown bin at The Cross Stitch Cupboard in Ft. Lauderdale, FL while I was on vacation. I had never seen this style of presentation before so I bought it! What will I do with the stitched piece...I'm unsure at this point. But I do love the way it turned out.

Scrapbooking ~

Here is my latest finish for an on-going WIP. This is a scrapbook cover that fits over a 12"X12" album. Available from 123Stitch.com. I used the Cherrywood Designs chart NEEDLES for this, using DMC white.

Photobucket

I scrapbook my smaller pieces of cross stitch that are too small to frame or finish into something worthwhile that I could use around the house.

Photobucket

The charts I used for these pieces were: Prairie Schooler ~ 'S is for Spring', I got this chart using the wayback machine, The Drawn Thread ~ Spring Keeper, this was also found using the wayback machine,(http://web.archive.org/web/20030508011225/http://www.thedrawnthread.com/) and then finally Lizzie*Kate's ~ Hello Spring, found on her website (http://www.lizziekate.com/free.html). All stitched on Aida using DMC thread.

Thanks for letting me share these with you. May all your stitches be happy ones!

In XxX's,

Photobucket

Here We Go!

I have contemplated having a blog for some time and have decided to take the plunge! I plan on using this blog to post my completed cross stitching pieces, whether just off the needle and or the completely finished piece. I will post pictures, list the chart used, fabric and thread as well. Hopefully all of this will 'push' me to finish my pieces a little faster and actually see them to completion. Wish me luck....! Here we go!
