The French Knot Poodle

Happy Saturday everyone!
Hope it's filled with stitching. :)


French Knot Poodle


 I made this little french knot poodle two years ago.  It hangs in our hallway.    I made it to look like our Mabel of course.  I used various grey dmc threads and tweeded a bit to try and match her shading.  She was born black and keep turning lighter and lighter grey slowly.  She even has a few touches of silver to her.   I framed it in a silver 6x6 frame.



Mabel :)

And here she is soaking up the sun.  This picture was taken this month by my thirteen year old daughter Madeleine.

Today  I will not be stitching until I do finishing first.  I must force myself on the finishing part sometimes.  I like to take a little while to think on how to finish a stitched piece off.  I will finally have a small Christmas themed pillow done today.  Then I will be finishing a scissor fob for myself.  I do not have one.  I made one before, that was a gift for my friend Ruth.

While I work on finishing I will be thinking about what to start next.  I am considering a new craft to me.  Or I have a sewing project that is waiting.  Always something right? :)

Just visited your blog for the first time ... must say I will definitely be back. I particularly liked your small Assisi embroidery piece ... that's one style of embroidery I still haven't tried. In any case, welcome to the blogging world.
