Well, this week has flown right by. I have been busy finishing up the stitching on this model. It is an Amy Bruecken Design from her Monthly Snow People series titled "Sam-August Sampler". It is stitched on 30ct WDW Carrot linen using GAST and WDW threads. The part I liked the most were the embellishments. They really finished off the design It also uses memory thread for the mouth. I hadn't worked with memory thread before but it really is a quick way to add demention to your needlework. Although this isn't my preferred style of stitching his smile is quite adorable.
I also managed to make it to stitching group this week. We have 2 new lovely ladies in our group. I really enjoy getting together with people who have the same interests. We are now meeting at a local library and it is quite enjoyable. There are comfy chairs and surprisingly enough there is great natural lighting.
We also go a new set of foster kitties. They brought 4 of them over on Wednesday afternoon, what we believed to be 4 females. Three are gray and white and one is black and white. Unfortunately, one of the furbabies wasn't doing well so I took it to the vet and they determined that it was actually a boy and his prognosis isn't good. If you could say a little prayer in your heart for this little guy I would be grateful. I am crossing my fingers that with the IV and antibiotics that he will turn around. I will try to post a pic of the furbabies tomorrow. Have a great evening and I hope you get to cross some x's.
