A Little Stitching

Hi, all. Blogger--or my internet connection--is slow tonight, so just a quick post of what I've been working on this weekend. Although I'm back from the Cape, I'm trying to catch up with the cleaning, grocery shopping, spreadsheet for work and whatever else I'm supposed to be accomplishing. Hard to believe Thanksgiving is this week.

Dorothy Walpole: with my ongoing sadness and with the dull weather, the flowers on Dorothy were just what I needed.


This guy was a big help too. He inspected the luggage carefully, no doubt hoping for a treat, but also out of curiosity. Had I left it there long enough, he'd have crawled into it and nested in my clothing. I removed it, picturing doots hanging off my favorite sweaters when I put one of them on early in the morning. Not to worry, though. The treat is leaning against the wall; you can see a corner of it (timothy hay with "herbs": rose petals, rosemary and some other stuff that makes it fragrant.


It's nice to be back. Happy week ahead!

It's such a relief to have stitching to help get through the difficult times. I love the colors in Dorothy.

Pink looks like such a big guy next to your suitcase; how big is he?

Big hugs, Glenna. I was thinking of you today.

Is it me or are the colors on Dorothy Walpole prettier than they look on the Scarlet Letters website? Yours just looks so much nicer.
