One Down

I did manage to finish the Flea Market stitching on Monday night. As you can see, now stitched with 100% more dog hair. I may not get around to the finishing until Christmas presents are made.

I'm home all day so I should manage to put some stitching into the dude's anniversary present (6 days and counting), right? Somehow I don't. I don't understand how more time=less accomplished. Really now.

My little rants and the ensuing discussion do require my attention. I know I have outstanding comments and e-mails to respond to, but again all day to do it, and nothing gets done. Now I'm running out the door to meet someone. It's good I'm doing this--gets me out of the house and forces me to, um, organize myself. Ahem.

I know you need your Stella fix. Here she is eating meeting my niece. It's love!

As someone in the stitchy blogosphere wrote, dog hair is just another specialty fiber. :D

Stella looks like a sweetie.

Your niece looks like a really good sport ... but then Stella is a beauty ... I'll bet she is pretty hard to resist.

Stella looks like she's thoroughly enjoying herself. Stitching looks great!

Rigby tried to eat/greet a new friend of Nick's today and the poor boy went into hysterics. That was a new reaction. Rigby didn't understand, and simply redoubled his licking in an effort to calm the child down. I bet someone will be having nightmares tonight!

My niece may look like she's just tolerating this in this snap, but it must be the very second she stopped smiling. She loves dogs second only to horses. She can tell you the name of every dog she's ever met. And while she can't say my sister's name, she can say "Stell."

Very nice progress on Flea Market. The part you finished would make a great piece alone. I'll have to think about that ...
