Excellent progress made on afghan

I was very good last night. When I got home from work, I put their leashes on the twins and took them for a walk, their first together in the three weeks we've had Robbie-do. I felt like I was driving a team of horses, only stronger. And they are so funny looking, walking together, because Robbie is compact and neat-looking, while my beautiful Chance, well you can tell she has lived a luxurious life. We walked about a mile, and I'm sure we looked funny, me in my sweater, skirt, and ballet flats walking these two mis-matched little dogs. Anyway, when we got back, I of course got out of that sweater and skirt--it was humid yesterday--and sat down to stitch. I got that backstitching fixed, and started on the square I wanted to work on. I think I made excellent progress.

I think this is made easier by the fact that, after M'deer, I am not afraid of the complexity of design anymore. This is really not that hard, and not that much confetti stitching. And definitely not that much backstitching. I am on Square 9, which is the trellis with a bird nest. These are a piece of cake after the deer. But I don't think I will be taking this to CATS. It's too big, it's not easy to haul it around, and, to be honest, I am afraid people will think that I am a heathen for not keeping it in a pillowcase. So I will take something else.

I will try to post a picture tonight.

That's great! I can't wait to see a picture :o)

We look funny walking our dogs too. Duncan is very compact and struts along (he used to be a show dog) while Brie is all over the place and looks like a rat on a leash ;o)

I don't like taking big projects with me when I go away. Maybe it's best that it stays home.

I do my thing and you do yours. I am not in this world to live up to your expectations, and you are not in this world to live up to mine. You are you and I am I, and if by chance we find each other, then it is beautiful. If not, it can’t be helped--Frederick Perls
