Doggie, Dogs and More Dogs!

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!

Got Luck ?

Here's another finish for the week ~

Photobucket



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.

I used 14 count Aida and DMC colors 163, 164 and ercu. Fun and easy stitch!

In XXX's,

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:
