First of all, thank you to everyone who left a lovely comment about my new kitchen! I'm so glad that you like it.
After a minor set back when I ran out of dark blue thread, my "Dog Lessons for People" (by Lizzie Kate) is finally finished. It has now had a good old iron (sorry for swearing!) and is ready for framing! I thought I would show it to you now as if I have to have it professionally framed (instead of being able to buy a ready made frame) then I've got to save up and it could take a while!
I also have a dilemma. I came across this little charm that I bought on my last trip to the US in my sewing stash and wondered about sewing it onto the sampler somewhere as it is rather cute. But where? I'm thinking that maybe by the kennel would be good, but then again does it really need it? Not sure. Any suggestions gratefully received!
Since we are on the subject of dogs, now might be a good time to show you my new die (although some of you may have spied it over on my "cyber friend" (!) SusieJ's blog here ). I'm loving it - nearly as much as my "funky chicken"!!!
I made a couple of dog house tags, one for Sue and her dog Max, and another for myself and my cocker spaniel Tilly (sorry Ollie, but the die just doesn't look like a Spinone!):
and another couple of tags when I was just playing around with my new toy!:
