We have had a few days of rainy weather and what better thing to do than stitch. I finished stitching this on Monday but didn't post until now because I was down with a cold for a few days. I am feeling back to myself and when I look around me all I see are the things that need to be taken care of for Thanksgiving. I will have 18 guests this year and I am looking forward to every single one. As far as the work goes, well I will try to fit it in between stitching time. Just Kidding! I have already started ironing linens and polishing silverware. The platters have been cleaned and the dishes are next. I took a break and decided to update my blog. The above piece is LHN Monthly Sampler - December. It is stitched on 28ct Natural Linen. You may not recognize this piece from others you have seen in blogland because I played a switcheroo. I changed the house from red to blue. All of my holiday decor is silver and blue hence the blue house. I am so proud of the fact that I have stitched all of the monthly samplers in a relatively timely manner and I am doing a happy dance. Diane has created a great monthly series and I loved stitching each one.
On the puppy front, Miss Daisy had a follow up vet visit today and she now weighs 39 lbs. That is about 1/2 pound a day since her last visit. I really can't believe it. I knew having a Great Dane was going to be an adventure but I really can't believe how big, but extremely GENTLE she is. In my last post, I showed a picture of her in a rocking chair which she had taken over and last weekend, as hard as she tried to climb in that chair she just couldn't fit. She rested her head on the cushion, looked at me sadly as if to say "Mom, I just don't fit anymore." Way too cute!!! Here is a pic!
