Stitching Update

 Some day I am going to figure out how to insert these pictures into my blog with the Captions in an organized wonderful way.  It took me quite a long time today, just to get the pictures standing up straight. 

1st there is the latest update to Stoney Creeks Dog House Blessing.  I started this in January - one of those 15 new starts in 15 days.  It is on my complete in 2013 list.  Very few of those made that list. 
 So here is the Dog that blesses my house, my Wonderful Dakota....

Here is my latest update to Bothy Threads Garden Shed.  If you can see the yellow bit at the top - that is the center of the chart - also I have almost finished page 1 (a page with very few stitches).  This picture is a little blurry.  This is my Work on Every Monday SAL.  Debbie and Linda are doing an amazing job hosting and updating all of our work. 
And to my right is my Chocolate Cake Sampler - FINISHED.. TA DA!!! This is one of those 15 I started in January and it will be a gift for my daughter.  Once I figure out how I am going to really finish it, I will post a better picture.  But I must say I am really glad I jumped in that Challenge, I met some very nice blogger stitchers, and I really have finished some of those charts I have wanted to do for a very long time.
Is it Cold in your hometown.  It has been cold and rainy here for what seems like forever, but the garden has taken off nicely - fingers crossed my veggies grow.  This is only the 2nd year I have had a veggie garden, it is wonderful to watch things grow.


  1. You are making headway which is what matters. Great job finishing chocolate cake, it's so cute!
    It was almost 100 here today and it's supposed to cool off again in the next few days. I only have my herbs, broccoli, cauliflower, brussel sprouts, and lettuce in the ground. My tomatoes, zucchini, eggplant, squash, and cucumbers are still waiting for their homes to be ready..... I am a *little* behind.

  2. All your stitching looks great. Love the finish. Fingers crossed that your veggies do well.

  3. Hello

    Your stitching is lovely, the finish is great. Hope your veggies do well.

  4. Congrats on the adorable finish. Great progress on the Dog House. Of course, my favorite is the Garden Shed and you have made good progress.


  5. Congratulations on the Chocolate Cake finish! It looks luscious! The Dog House Blessing looks really nice. I stitched a different Dog House sampler last year. Your dog is beautiful. Great progress on your Garden Shed all the way to the center! I added your photo to the SAL page on my blog. Thanks!

  6. Oh my gosh, you are stitching so many lovely pieces! Love the dog house! Congrats on your finish, I am sure your daughter will love it!

  7. Your WIPs look great.

    Not cold here, but rainy and humid!


Thanks for sharing your thoughts and ideas.
