A quick update and a giveaway reminder


After a very lazy and rainy Saturday I finally found my energy on Sunday. A picture perfect autumn day. Rory was a bundle of energy as well. The both of us spent a lot of the day outside enjoying the sunshine and fresh air. Here he is checking out the weeds and bushes for birds or squirrels or stray cats. Anything he can chase.






Walking around the yard I happened to look down and spotted this little beauty. Six months ahead of schedule! A very pleasant surprise.



I also took a photo of one of the roses that are still blooming. I love the pink of this one and the sun shining on it.










I have been stitching on my exchanges and on my giveaway surprises. Here is a sneak peak of one of the ornaments for one of my giveaway winners. The colors aren't the greatest. It is one over one on a 28 ct celery gingham linen. I love it and plan on doing one for myself one of these days.








Remember when I mentioned that there are times I just can't get a lot of stitching done? Well one evening last week I managed to get a photo to show you why.




It is rather hard to stitch with him in my lap. He takes up a bit of space. So if my exchanges are a little late do you think I can blame Rory for not letting me stitch?





Don't forget to sign up for my giveaways. I am blown away with the number who have already signed up and their comments. Bloggers are the best. Especially stitching bloggers.
The deadline is Saturday, Halloween. Leave a comment on the previous post. Or click here. Let me know which giveaway you prefer or take a chance on both. Also make sure I can contact you if you are the winner.
Until next time ....................
Love and stitches
Kathy
and licks from Rory too

Those are beautiful flowers in your yard, Kathy. LOL, I don't know how you can hold Rory in your lap being as big as he is! I enjoyed the same weather as you on Sunday. Today it's rainy. :( Phooey!

Alice said...

That is so sweet. Rory is your baby now don't forget! He wants you all to himself in the evenings having to patiently wait for you to return from work each day. Bless him. ; )

I love the pics of Rory, especially the one of him looking right at the camera. lol He's too adorable.

Pam said...

How could anyone blame Rory if your exchanges are late? Just look at that face? He can't possibly be the reason you're late!

CindyMae said...

Oh, I can totally relate to why you are unable to get any stitching done! Rory is so gorgeous though!! Great pics!

Gabi said...

The picture of Rory in your lap is SO cute. His cheeky look is simply priceless. And of course you can blame him...he won't care one bit about it and crawl back on the lap for another cuddle.

Carolyn NC said...

Nope - just like babies, time flies by! Enjoy while you can! Great pics!

Mare said...

Oh Kathy, Rory is such a heart breaker! The female setters must go weak in the knees whenever he is near.

Rory just always puts a smile on my face, seeing him posed, on your lap or otherwise! What a lap buddy he is!!

Beautiful pictures!

Siobhan said...

Awww, how could you blame that face for anything?!? ;) Sometimes you just need a cuddle, and fur babies do a great job at it!

Kathy said...

Rory is beautiful. We had a shepherd who thought he was a lap dog too. Don'tcha love it!
