Football is Back :-)

I won't talk about it, because this is a stitching blog... but I am just happy right now that the NFL Football Season started this weekend :-)

OK, back to stitching... Amy is 9 years old today - Happy Birthday Amy! I am so happy you had two parties! That is fantastic! Thank you for the nice email. I stiched this wee little gift for Amy. This is the gift that took me a bit longer to finish than I had anticipated.

Dog House

Frimousse

Taupe Cashel Linen, DMC Floss, The Dye Shop Floss


And, of course, this week's Sunday update of Spring Ride... still stitching flowers :-)

Stitched on today: Finished Fair & Square blocks for Wendy, and Spring Ride

The little dog house is so cute and you finishing, as always, incredible.

Love the little dog house.

As far as I am concerned you can talk about football. I am also a football fan. I can stitch and watch most games on TV. More difficult when I go to the college games that I go to. Cannot get any stitching done at those. Just during the commute to it.

Amy should love that little dog house, Carol. Sweet idea to give her. Your other piece looks like it's really developing! What soft colors it has. I've been telling everyone here about your clam shack on the Neighborhood RR...we have lots of MA and NE transplants! Our EGA group is thinking about doing a RR amongst ourselves...
Sending love and hugs,
Deb

Annemarie said...

Really? It took you a while to stitch the doghouse? I would never have guessed. It looks so simple and straightforward... OMGoodness, woman, you're a marvel with needle and thread! Amy must have been beside herself. The doghouse is too, too cute :o)
Btw: no sign of the package :o/

Dog house is such a lovely pice !!! I love it (and had to hide the photo from my kids !!!)
I have dated long time ago Michael, who was playing american football here in Finland. He was from NH somewhere and asked me to move to the States with him after the season. Well, you know how it ended because I´m still here. ;-D Sometimes I have to write you some funny pics from our live then...

Kathy said...

Awww its cue, and well done so far on Spring Ride. I will add a pic later on of mine so far.

My hubby is also please that the NFL has started. I have now become a windo to the NFL til January again lol.

Love your little dog house-too cute!

Hey, the Pats are looking really good this season~and I'm even willing to admit that from over here from Bear Country! We still struggle with Rex-man! He's like the little girl with the curl-when he is good he is very,very good, and when he is bad he is horrid! Love the NFL!!
