About Me

I love anything creative...I am a busy mom of three (+4 dogs, 1 bird, 1 bunny, and 1 sweet husband) who sometimes wishes I had more time/energy/talent to devote to just being creative!

They say dogs don't have the emotional intelligence to hold a grudge, but I don't think that is true. I trade off on which dog I take running with me, because if I take both they think it is the Idatrod sled race. This morning I took our border collie, and left the shepherd at home. The shepherd is actually a better companion in that she is older/calmer and runs more my pace. The border collie has no use for the word heel, and can shave a full minute off my pace. But now since we got home from said run, the shepherd has taken every opportunity to nip and growl at the border collie. They will work it out I'm sure, but in the mean time it is pretty funny. Above is our sweet poodle Zeppelin, who never gets to go on runs with me due to his short little legs. Yes he is a mutt, we think mixed with schnauzer, but we'll never know. I do love his beard when he is all groomed. We got all of our dogs from the pound or rescue, he was on doggie death row at the pound. He had pushed his little nose up against the cage so much we had made it bleed, and the pound couldn't adopt a white dog with a bloody muzzle I guess (well they sold him to us and we have loved him ever since).

Not much stitching progress this week, but I did manage to buy new stash. This is of course Prairie Schooler's "Trick or Treat". I love the 3 little trick or treaters at the bottom and think I may only sew that part of it. Is it too early to start stitching for Halloween?
And this is one of the new threads  I got, WDW "beehive" I thought it perfect for sewing a little bumble bee with, so I went right to Pinterest to search for a free chart. You can find this one on crossstitch.about.com, or under my Pinterest profile bluestarstitchr. I am debating whether to do his wings in white or continue on with the beehive thread.

The threads are a great color for the beehive. No , it is never too early to stitch Halloween. i think my next project is going to be the BBD design"Away We Ride" I love "Trick or Treaters. It is in my stash. I think animals are much smarter than we give them credit for being!What a cute dog in the photo!

It's never too early to stitch something for Halloween. And your new chart is so great and has lovely designs.

I love the Trick or Treaters too. It is never too early or too late to stitch for Hallowe'en, why not come over and see our Hallowe'en Ornie SAL blog?
