How About Some More Poodles?! tee hee!

Hi friends! I have had two Charles Craft cross stitch towels in my stash for ages. I decided to stitch up the ivory one. Our kitchen is pale yellow, so why not apricot poodles with yellow neckerchiefs? tee hee!
I searched through my inventory (yes! inventory) of poodle patterns. I love these Swedish Antique poodles from the antique pattern library. This pattern is from 1915. Do you recall me stitching this poodle a few months ago? See this post here to see a mini version of the poodle.
So sweet! And yes, we will be using the towel in the kitchen. I don't want to stash it away, never to be used. I don't wanna wreck it either! ;)

I went searching through my poodle patterns yet again. This time for an embroidery pattern. I needed the shape of a poodle to match our little Henry. :) Do you recall me sharing with you THE french knot poodle? Well it is time for me to knot up a certain little, apricot mister too. :) I found a poodle close in looks to our little boy. I made a few necessary changes, and got out the light box to transfer him onto some white material. I am now happily working on Henry. I have made well over one thousand french knots already. I had hoped to have him finished this week, but that will not be happening. My right hand, wrist and forearm are painful now from so much repetitive work for hours. I must take breaks.

I hope you have a beautiful day today my friends. Thank you for your kind words. I am still trying to fix my yahoo email mess. Just know that I am still commenting, even if the comments are NOT popping up in your email.

It is going to be a sunny, warm day today! I am off to worship shortly. Have a great day in the Lord.

Stitching and praying,
Vickie

Some more poodles, hahaha, why not? Can there ever be enough poodles for you, lol. But I can understand you, they are so sweet, your stitched ones and the real ones. Looking forward to seeing Henry with more than thousands French knots :)

They are adorable you are lucky that poodles are easier to find not so much with the breed that I love Airedale terrier. I pray that the pain lessens quickly, can't imagine doing that many French knots LOL! Blessings...

Another cute project and I like their sunshine yellow neckerchiefs.
1,000 French knots? Please tell me you are joking!

Another delightful poodle project. I'd be disappointed if you changed to stitching dinasaurs or whales or some such :)

Super darling! I love the idea of stitching on towels and using them too! I have some towels that I always think of to stitch as gifts. Now you got me thinking:)
Love the colors of the poodles too.

I love the fact that you have an inventory of poodle patterns--too cute :) The towel is darling--especially like the yellow neckerchiefs!

Jo who can't think of a clever nickname said...

I like LaNelle's comment. Imagine going to adopt a new dog and saying "Oh no, I can't have that one, it doesn't feature in any patterns!"

I love seeing each new poodle stitch.

Poodles always make me think of my great aunt (grandmother's sister) who was my godmother as well. She had a giant apricot poodle named Gigi and she adored that dog. She also had several lovely pieces of poodle themed jewelry.
