What I've been working on

I was away all weekend with my mother on family business. It was a very stressful trip, but I did hit the thrift store and found some goodies. I'll share those in another post, but I did get a bit of stitching done. The humbug is coming along. I did a lot of frogging on Friday, but I have the big clump of lavendar done now, and I'm working on the side clumps. I should have this done this week, so stoked about that.


I also finish-finished a Lizzie Kate I started working on two months ago. I found the fabric back in October, and it just seemed to fit this one. HTB thinks the fabric is a bit busy, I told him I like it. My aunt made the bow for me. I need to pouf it a bit, but it looks good. The one bummer was that I bought some pony beads that reminded me of pumpkins, but there are only three in the bag--I didn't know there were just three of each style because there were a lot of styles mixed together. So, til I get back to Joann's to get more of those, my cube doesn't have feet. I know there are things I could do better about this cube, but it's a learning process, and it's pretty good for the first one.



And to leave you for the day, a bit of cuteness! My aunt's friend raises Great Danes, and this is her newest litter. They are 7 weeks old and already the same size as the twins. Their father is HUGE, so they'll get a bit bigger. It's maybe not the best photo, but trying to make 3 puppies stand still simultaneously is not an easy thing, LOL.

Those Danes are adorable! I can't imagine having something the size of a small horse living in your house. LOL!

I love that little cube! Great job on the finishing. I like your WIP, too. Those Great Danes are adorable. I know they're a wonderful breed, but I think I must prefer my little small guy! ;)

Your finish on the Lizzie Kate is lovely. Very Cute. And the puppies are adorable!

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
