Sorry I have been such a bad blogger. I blame it on two things. Facebook, which is so easy to get lost in, and being very busy. Busy stitching, busy working, busy with Rory and just busy with life. That's the story of the last month. Whew. Time for a breather but it sure doesn't look like that is happening any time soon. The first dog shows of the year are this weekend. Than my great nephew's Birthday and party the following weekend. Deadlines are fast approaching at work and another stitching exchange to get finished soon. Oh well, I can't complain about being bored.Since I posted last I have actually had two stitching finishes for me. Both are the pieces I started on Christmas day and new Year's day. I also finished one exchange piece but since I only mailed it today I can't show any pics yet.
My first finish is La D Da's My Sunshine. I just loved stitching this. A quick stitch and one that makes me smile every time I see it. I sing this song to Rory all the time. This chart was generously passed on to me by Kat G of Flopsykitten stitchin'. Thank you so very much for letting me stitch this. And continuing with that spirit I would like to pass it on to another stitcher. Leave a comment and if there are more than one wanting it I will put your names in a hat. Make sure you leave your email so I can contact you.The second finish is Hooked on Dogs. Rather appropriate don't you think? I want to find a couple of Irish setter charms instead of the ones that came with it. So framing this will be a little while.I also started two new pieces.Now for the Rory portion of the posting. Even though we haven't done any showing the past few months we have been keeping busy. Rory was asked to be a model for a local company, Mighty Mite Dog Gear, (click on the company name to see the whole page.) that sells Agility equipment, among other things. He was also asked (by the same woman) to help a little poodle overcome her fear of big dogs and me to play with my camera and help her with that fear. We all spent a couple of afternoons having a grand old time. Little Phoebe, the toy poodle, got so that she kept running up to Rory and teasing him something terrible. And poor Rory couldn't go chasing her. After all she is only 4 pounds and Rory is 74 so we did keep Rory on a leash. He was such a gentleman. Every time she came up to him he would lay down so he didn't scare her.We had our first snow of the winter. One of Rory's favorite things. Catching snowballs! It didn't last but it was fun while it did.And last but not least Rory had to have his Valentine photos taken. He so wants a sweetheart.
Until next time......................Rory and I hope you all have a wonderful Valentine's Day.
Love and stitches
and licks from Rory too

That's so cool that Rory was picked to be a model for that company! Nice that he did such a good job with his poodle friend too. Love the pics of him as usual. He is such a cutie! And your stitching -- congrats on the finishes! And I love your new starts as well!
Poor Rory, he is so abused and never gets any attention..LOL He's beautiful. Love all your pictures.
Rory is a star! Love all his pictures. Glad that he helped the little dog. Your stitching looks wonderful.
I so enjoy your blog. Rory is just putty in your hands - what a wonderful animal. You have gotten a lot of stitching done -- You are my sunshine is one of my all time favorite songs too! Judi in Phx
Wonderful blog...and I love the Valentines outfits that Rory has on...what a cutie. I have a golden retriever and can relate to how much joy a dog-buddy brings to your life!
Your stitching is beautiful. I would love to have You're My Sunshine pattern. I would love to stitch it for my sister. She is 10 years younger than me and I would sing this song to her. Rory's pictures are so adorable. I just love the Hug Me picture.
Rory totally rocks!!! He looks smashing in the Valentine costumes~
Love your finishes!!!! The La-D-Da one is just too cute!!!! Might have to add that in my stash!!!
Looks great! I love your fabric choice! Rory looks the perfect gentleman, as always!
As always beautiful pictures. Rory looks great. My sunshine is so cute. Have fun at the shows.
Have missed you both :@ Beautiful finish, can't wait to see the other. You Are My Sunshine, just makes you smile, and as much as I would love to say pass it on over, way way to busy with lots to stitch. Maybe another time.
Good luck with the shows, maybe this weekend will be the big one. BIS!!!! Rory my love you are one cool dude.

Great finishes! You Are My Sunshine is one of my favorites. Great starts too! You take such fun photos of Rory. I'm amazed he sits still for them. He is so well behaved!
Love the pictures of Rory and congrats to him for the modeling! He looks like such a good boy!
Oh my gosh! Rory's pictures made me chuckle ~ they are great! Great stitching finish too!
Rory is sooo beautiful! Great pics of your baby and stitching. Good luck with the dog shows!
Lovely stitching and love the pictures of Rory, glad he was able to help the poodle.
Good luck with the dog show.

I would also love a chance to stitch that chart...I'd love to do it for my grandson...it's one of his favorite songs. Thanks for the chance.
Rory and the poodle sounds like a great time. Congrats on the finishes of Sunshine and Dogs, they came out lovely. CJ in OK ;-)
Rory is a real cover boy! I adore his pictures with snow on his nose. Happy Valentine's to both of you!
Oooo, I was so excited to see Rory that I forgot to congratulate you on your finishes. Well done Kathy! I love the sunshine song.

Hi Kathy & Rory:)This is my first visit to your blog. I just found you through the BBD Yahoo group which I'm a member of although I tend to read rather than post. Your finishes are lovely as are your new starts.
Love the photos of Rory. He is such a sweetie:)
How can you just not help yourself but laugh out loud when you see that cutie patootie Rory all duded up for valentines day! :)
Makes me smile!
I love your finish too Kathy, but sorry, Rory steals the show!
I absolutely LOVE the picture of Rory with the bit of snow on his nose!! It is so danged cute! Love your La-D-Da finish, and wouldn't mind do it up myself, so throw my name in the hat too! Best of luck with the ad campaign--a new endeavor! Do let us know when it is public! Remember if you come this way...Hugs to you and Rory!
Rory you are such a gentledog. Kathy loved the finishes 2 already you go girl.
good luck at the show.
Kathy your finishes are lovely. Rory is such a well behaved dog! He is such a good model....
Nice stitching. Beautiful Rory. I sang that to my daughter and figured it out on the piano too. She plays, I do not! May I please have a chance too? email@example.com
Oh. My. Goodness. Who could not resist being Rory's sweetheart? What a good boy you have!!!
Your stitching finishes are beautiful and I can't wait to see the progress on the others you started.
That little poodle has more fur than her little 4 pounds of body, but the "hairdo" says "attitude"!
Great finishes Kathy!!
Would love a chance for "You are my sunshine" and would gladly pass it on when I am done. (email is on my profile)
Rory is just so gorgeous! I love his valentine pics!! He is too funny!
Congrats on Rory on his new modeling career. *throws confetti*
wonderful pics of Rory.
Lovely finishes and such lovely photos of Rory. Thank you for sharing your blog always cheers me up. I would love to haves chance at receiving the you are my sunshine chart as that is a favourite song of my children. firstname.lastname@example.org
So pleased to see a post from you Rory and Kathy. oh yes I will be yours Rory but I think Kathy would be a little jealous!!
Kathy the stitching is terrific and hope the show is a success. Rory you Rock!!!!!!!!!!
Way to go Rory! Good luck with the show, good luck to Rory too. Your stitching is wonderful as always!
I would love to stitch the "You are My Sunshine" as that was the first song I learned when I was 4 years old. My grandmother taught me to sing it. Amazing since I was born deaf so I am not sure if I was on key or not. LOL But she was determined that I would learn to sing the words. Never forgotten that from my grandmother. She passed away when I was 8 and that was in 1958. Anyway, I love reading your blog. The dog is very lovely. Good luck with the show!
Your stitching is lovely and thank you for sharing pictures of Rory!
I just love seeing Rory and your pics of all the wonderful things you are doing.
Rory has the best Valentine..... YOU!
Although I would love to be able to hug that beautiful boy!
Great photos, what a ham! How sweet it is that he helped that little dog. Great job stitching and love your sunshine piece. My mom used to sing that.
Lovely finish!! Rory is so precious, he looks like he is posing for his pics! And how sweet of him to help another dog. ♥ Not sure if you know I have a dog now! I have a blog just for pics of her and the link is on my stitching blog. :)
Yo are keeping so busy, Kathy, that I wonder how you get any stitching done. But those are lovely pieces you have just completed. I agree with you - the sampler is very cheerful. Wanda in Edmonton
Good luck to you and Rory in the dog shows this year...you will do great yet again!! Nice stitching Kathy.
Great stitching! Rory looks cute all decked out!
Just wanted to say Rory is gorgeous. Our first dog was an Irish Setter and she was loved by everyone, she was quite a comedian I still miss her, she lived to be 17.l/2 years old. Setters are fabulous dogs. Linda
Oh I love the dogs .... very lovely

HI Kathy, I'm a new follower,
I was drawn to you by your profile pic on another blog I was trolling. I thought it that an Irish Setter!? Why yes it is!!!! I have an Irish Setter myself named Leia. They are just the most wonderful and majestic (albeit clumsy and doppy too) dogs aren't they!!!!
Love your stitching as well of course :)
Looking forward to seeing more :)
