“Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so,I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also. And where I go you know, and the way you know.” John 14:1-4

Poodle Pin Cube

Hi friends! I can finally share a finish with you. I  took part in Jo's Summer Postcard Blog Hop, and I did not want to share my work until the recipient posted my pictures. Katie received my pet themed summer postcard. Can you guess that I stitched poodles? tee hee!
The top one looks so much like Henry to me. So that makes the bottom picture Mabel. Skinniest she has ever been. ;)
I found this pin cube pattern freebie HERE.  You need to scroll through the freebies to find the different free patterns you will need to make this pin cube.

I used 28ct white linen and pink Madeira silk floss. Both a gift from Charlene. Thank you Charlene! I used interfacing in making this cube.

Found a few neat books at the library on Friday. This is a new one. It is published yearly here in Wisconsin. I have a few patterns picked out to stitch.
 Went to JoAnn and bought every pink DMC floss I did not already own. :)

This is such an awesome plant. I found these seeds, that I believe were called Batchelor's Buttons. I have seen the seeds for years at the dollar store and finally bought them. Boy, am I glad I did! The flowers just keep coming and coming in so very many shades of pink, white and purple.♥
Well, back to finishing. I hope you have a most excellent week my friends! Thank you for your kind words.

Stitching and praying,

Vickie, that pin cube is so cute! The little poodles are adorable. I bet Mable likes it, too. We ALL appreciate a picture that makes us look skinnier! LOL

Your flowers are so pretty. I like the bachelor buttons. :-)

Nataly K said...

Love your poodle pin cube. So precious in pink. I really enjoyed the flowers photos. Thanks for sharing.

Jacquie Morris said...

Oooh very pretty pink cube.... I love it. I don't think I have seen one, so to me it's awesome! Your pink threads are really pretty and cannot wait to see what other pink projects you do.
Such lovely flowers... Bet they smell lovely.
Big smiles :)

Mii Stitch said...

Yes, I saw it on Katie's blog & immediately recognized your work: pink & poodle!! It had to be you :D
It looks wonderful!
Love your new thread stash :)

Annie said...

Very cute pin cube. I have that stitched up in variegated red and it sits on little end table. But mine doesn't have poodles... I'm jealous.

Varla Lee said...

Hi dear Vickie!! Was hard to me to retourn back, but i'm here admiring your lovely poodle cube and your wonderful pansies. A big hug.

Hilda said...

This cube is so pretty - I love it. Thank you for linking to the free chart, Vicky!
Your flowers are so beautiful. The "Bachelor's Button" do we call "Cornfloweres" and I do like them very much. Here in Austria the blue ones grow wild in fields and on the roadside (but still quite rare, unfortunately).

Have a wonderful new week!

Fantastic work on that cube, both stitching and finishing!

Brigitte said...

I have seen the poodle cube on Katie's blog and immediately thought of you - of course, lol.

Carolien said...

Hello Vickie,

Your pink poodle is very nice!
Mmm, more pink DMC's, how very inconvenient ;) Enjoy!
Have a great week, thank you for your mail & enjoy the flowers.

Bye, Carolien

Vickie: Your pin block is so sweet, I love the pink color so French and the poodles are so perfect.
I love the dollar store, so many fun things to see and buy.
Your flowers are beautiful.

I saw the poodles on Katie's blog and immediately thought of you haha. They're very sweet little cubes. :D

And I am surprised you didn't have that large amount of pinks. Figured you would've had them long ago!

Ann at Beadlework. said...

Such a neat poodle pin cube Vickie. That's a fair selection of pink thread:-)

Annette-California said...

Beautiful PINK poodle pin cube Vickie! I love the pretty Quaker designs you incorporated. Look at all those yummy pink threads - LOL!
I am going to look up that Christmas book at my library:)
Love all your flowers - love Dollar store!

Beautiful finish! I love that cube :D

Carol said...

Such a pretty-in-pink cube, Vickie. Thanks for the link, too--hadn't seen that one before.

Your flowers are so lovely--especially the batchelor's buttons--such a nice old-fashioned plant in those pretty colors.

Glad your local library is giving you some nice cross-stitching ideas--that looks like a great book!

butterfly said...

What a lovely post Vickie, love your pink cube .
Beautiful flowers . Can't wait to see what you stitch from the book .
So many pink threads I can feel some more pink stitching coming to life.

Christina said...

Great job on your cube. I get the yearly Christmas book too. Love seeing your flower pics.

CJ said...

The cube is great , I have been inspired. That is a lot of pink floss.

Enjoy your day.

Your pin cube turned out really pretty, Vickie. I did this one several years ago in blue. www.tinyurl.com/PinCube
