Happy Monday update


Here it is another Monday afternoon. Where does the time go? Summer is almost over. Thank goodness. It is not my favorite season. Heat and humidity, mosquitos and other bugs. Yuck. I love fall and spring best. Cool nights and temps in the low 70s. Awwwww. Instead on those days that the hot sticky weather or the blasted blood sucking mosquitos chase us indoors I try to get some home computer time in. But as you can see in the photo above Rory likes that chair too. Probably surfing facebook for his buds.

This past week was a good one on the stitching front. Lots of progress made on my newest wip, the Sampler Lady for the LHN yahoo group SAL. After this photo I finished up the skirt and the trim and have start the blue top.

I have also been working on another LHN pattern but it is for an exchange so no photo on that one.






I have officially finished half the border on La-D-Da's Lauren's Voice. If I get as much done on this one I just might have it finished by the end of September. I hope so because I am itching to start the patterns I showed you in my last post.


I haven't made as much progress on BBD's Awake the Dawning Day but I did make some.

It seems that the BBD nights in my rotation just happen to be the nights that Rory wants more of my attention. That usually means he is in my lap. Not an easy thing to do since he is now 24 inches tall at the shoulder and about 45 lbs! Not exactly lap dog size!





Until next time.........................

Love and stitches
Kathy
and lick from Rory too

Lovely stitching Kathy. Love the colours in the BBD piece, so pretty.
I have to agree, 45lbs is a bit much for a lap dog! LOL

Donna said...

And I thought my weinie dog was a bit much!

Funny how they don't realize that they don't seem to fit in the lap quite as well as they used to! I can't believe how tall Rory is. Cute pic at the computer. Your stitching looks great - nice progress on all of them.

Gabi said...

The stitching is looking great. I think you should be sitying in Rory's lap, lol
I also am ready to start feeling the cool crisp air.

Are you sure Rory isn't looking to buy doggie (or kitty) treats online. Better hide the CC's from him.

Your stitching looks fantastic as always.

CindyMae said...

Your stitching is looking just gorgeous! Rory is getting so big! Big dogs make the best of lap dogs, even though they don't fit! LOL

Kristin said...

I love your WIPs and the pic of Rory in front of the computer is adorable.

Kathy, I think Rory is checking to see if any of the comments mention how cute he is. Or, maybe he wants to see if there's any pics of his buddy across the Atlantic--my pup. ;)

Your stitching is coming along so nicely! Great progress!
