A Little Stitching and A Sweet Friend

It has been such a long time since my last blog post.  This has been a very different few months.  Not much sewing or creativity going on here at my house.  I hope that will change soon.  I have done a couple of small embroidery projects and attended a couple of "Sit and Sews".  I do have two quilts the were quilted by my quilter Kathy that I will bind and share soon. I will show you two of my "One Stitch at a Time" designs by Kathy Schmitz.  I have completed the stitching on my July and August designs but now I must make something with them.

           My August project below was fun, I used my crayon box to make this one a little different, it has been a while since I tried adding coloring to my embroidery projects.

September's design was called "Sweet Surroundings"  I made this one with a friend in mind but have not had time to complete the project yet.

My husband and I spent a little more time than usual at the ocean this summer.  We have always taken our dog Emmy with us.  It was always Emmy's favorite place to be.  She would perk up and be full of energy.  She was failing fast this summer so we took her with us whenever we could.  We were sad to have to say goodbye to Emmy late in August and will always remember her love of the beach.

I am not sure that I want to get another dog, we are so busy and I don't know what is best right now but we are thankful for the time we had with Emmy, she was 13 years old.

Here she is waiting for me to get moving or throw the ball to her.  She had begun loosing weight when this picture was taken but still enjoyed running or walking on the beach.

To every thing there is a season and a time to every purpose under heaven.
