AND NOW, FOR SOMETHING COMPLETELY DIFFERENT.....AND a Sweetie Pie
I received this counted cross stitch sampler in the mail a few days ago. I happened upon "The Scarlet Letter" site, saw these fantastically lovely samplers and decided to give counted cross stitch a try...
Beautiful even-weave linen, floss and inside a huge chart. This is a real challenge for me; I have done needlepoint, stamped cross and embroidery, and crewel for many years--but never counted cross stitch. This will be a
L O N G T E R M project. So far I have about 3/4ths of the border done--and I am finding it very relaxing and calming work.
Yesterday, we went to visit this sweetie pie:
(Sorry for the blur--she is almost always in motion!!)
I brought her a new "Dolly" .....
Mommy put a new "piggy tail" in her hair and we all had a lovely lunch together--it was her first time trying hot dogs--(Ummm...no they're not too hot; and --oh--they're not doggies" Funny.)
Here we are snacking on Cheddar rice crackers--those we really like!!
We are just so blessed to have little Fiona in our family...
Hugs to all after a wonderful getaway day yesterday....Julierose, La Blageuse
