Emmitt's First Haircut!


And isn't he just SO CUTE! Sorry----I'm very partial and unbiased in my opinion...but I do so love this dog! Emmitt has his very first haircut today at the groomers. She said he was SUCH a good boy that it only took her 45 minutes to do what usually takes almost 2 hours! I'm such a proud mama!

Brrrrrrrr.......

Definite chill is in the air! YEAH!!!! I LOVE Autumn! LOVE it! More than summer I think! As I sit here, the weatherman is saying "Frost Warning" for tonight. :o) Definitely time for a trip to the orchard and pumpkin patch! Maybe this coming weekend.

Well...news in stitching world is that I finished Blackbird Designs Strawberry Garden this past weekend! :o) I don't have a pic just yet. Son Jake drained the batteries in my camera taking self-portraits the other day. But as soon as I pick some more up, I'll get that one all pressed and take a picture. Since that one is complete, I did pick Fran back up, if only for a short while.

Nothing much new on the homefront, but I did want to keep this updated a bit!

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

A Long Labor Day Weekend! YES!!!!

I absolutely LOVE loooooooooooong holiday weekends! And this one has been fabulous because it's been chilly....and rainy....with sun peeking thru from time to time....just in time to save your sanity. I love these kind of weekends!

I've been working on my Frances Eden sampler...have moved on to page 3 of 6. Almost half done! YEAH!

I have bread dough rising...decided to go back in time and make some bread the old-fashioned way....by pounding and pounding and beating the dough to death...working out all my frustrations in the process. LOL

It feels great to know it's only SUNDAY! Which means I have a whole entire 'nother day of doing just whatever happens to catch my fancy! :o) Perhaps I'll cut out a quilt....I don't have one in the works, which is odd. Well...I take that back....I DO have Birdsong by Jan Patek all cut out waiting for the hand applique to begin. But I seem to always pick up "Fran" when it comes time for handwork. But...alas...the weekend is still young...kinda! :o)

Thanks for everyone who let me know about Blogrolling! We'll see if it works!

I'll post progress pics of Fran soon! I hope your needles are smokin' and you're enjoying the long weekend! Take care!
