Stitch, frog, repeat
That seems to have been the theme for the weekend. I had to frog three times (twice because of knots and once because I left out a row) over the course of two days - and considering I didn't spend a lot of time stitching that meant not much progress. I would have liked to get at least another thread length on the top border but I have put it away to work on a couple of other things that need to be done and I'll pick it back up when I finish those things. (exchange and gift so no details yet!)
Thanks for all the comments/emails. It makes be feel like I'm not talking to myself here! I like to respond when I can, but sometimes I can't find an email address - and sometimes not even a blog to respond on. If I haven't responded to you, please know that I do appreciate the comments! Keep 'em coming!
That 'cute pup' from a previous post is a busy little fellow. Last time we kept him (he belongs to baby boy and dil) he chewed on my dining room chair. Yesterday I caught him snacking on a potted plant.
From the looks of it I would say he has been snacking since he got here a week ago. I only took pics of these two leaves. Some of them only have a little stub left. Good thing he is cute. He is spending the summer here. Good thing he is cute. Yes, I know I already said that - it bears repeating!
bshoney - yes, I knew the folk lore behind the bottle tree. Hubby says we have caught a spirit when the dogs are barking at nothing. We must have a lot of them already! I have been saving that post for several years with the intention of making a bottle tree out of it. At least you are saving your bottles first. The bottles are harder to come by than the post! LOL
