PM piece is moving along


I went through high drama on this piece over the weekend, but we came up with the solution to put the lettering on top. This piece is a lot of work, now my nightmare is I'll find out this wasn't the material they sent! I'm hoping to get it done Friday, Sat. at the latest. If I have to mail it on the 15th, so be it, it'll be a couple days late then. I have the worse of the piece done now so it should be smooth sailing now. You can tell the piece really is large for the material they sent, but that was the pattern they wanted to.

My parents got a dog for my brother today. He's been ill for years and since his beloved cat died in Aug. he's been in the hospital several times. So they got a dog hoping that will help. (Plus mom really wanted one too). She's a Llapso and is 3 years old. She has already met my brother and they hit it off, he named her Madison. I'll post a picture of her when I see her.

Tomorrow is my dad's birthday so I'll get his card ready. He's going to be 78, still very active though, but needs to slow down. I say they got the dog for dad's birthday but he's not an animal lover, so he says, but the animals tell us differently!

On the stitching front, I really hope to have this PM piece done this weekend we'll see then I can go to Light of Peace and finish that off.

Well, until next time. Happy Stitching!
