Work and Puppy in Progress



Firstly, this is our puppy in progress. she is only 2 weeks old and is still at the breeders. Look at her little tail! Deb the breeder has put in toys with her because she is all by herself, i get to go and see her next weekend, very exciting. We have named her "Bella", a name suggested by Heather, and we thought it was perfect. Deb had nicknamed her "Wonita" she she is the "One-Eater", coz she is all by herself, funny :-)


Some embroidery that i have done to make a card for my husband for valentines done. I downloaded the pattern for free at Sublime Stitching. When i saw it yesterday, i knew it was perfect as this is what my husband says to me all the time. Not your standard lovey dovey crap which is perfect for us! Now i just have to make a card to mount it in.


This is a photo of some embroidery i am doing for some little purses i am going to make. I'm just going around the design on the fabric to give it some detail. I am enjoying embroidery at the moment, and it means that i can sit on the couch and create, instead of sitting at the sewing machine.

What are you up to? Put a link in a comment below and share your projects!

Isabel and I are so excited you took our suggestion on your little puppy. Bella is adorable! Can't wait to hear how she does when you bring her home!

I used to love stitching in front of the TV B.C. (before children). After they came, I hated getting interrupted so much, so I gave it up. Really only did counted-cross-stitch, but it was so relaxing...

I love to see your projects. Isabel and I just finished up her handmade Valentines for Valentine's Day. I'll post about them this weekend.

Take care, Katie.

I too am a fan of the couch stitching, although am so obsessed at the moment it is also tram stitching, train stiching, waiting stitching.....( I have decided that walking stitching is just too dangerous) Love the V day card a beautiful sentiment indeed.
