Calendar Poodle SAL

Friday, September 25, 2015


Hi friends!  Hello new friends! How are you? Is it nice by you? It is warm and sunny here during our days and cool at night. Love it!

Our friend Brigitte had sent me pretty pink fabrics for the Epic Pink Tumbler Quilt. I was very happy to make and give a stitched bookmark to her as a thank you, since she has a collection of stitched bookmarks. :)
I stitched this sweet spool freebie (CLICK THIS LINK HERE FOR THE FREEBIE) two over two on 28ct white evenweave.
I stitched Brigitte's initial one over one.

And now I shall show you the gifts I received from our friend Nancy! She had another giveaway. Imagine that! ;) This giveaway was called Favorite Things Giveaway. She asked entrants to tell her our favorite things. Well, I told her pink and purple flosses. Imagine that! ;) I won!
Here's another shot so you can admire these pretties.
That is not all. Nope! Nancy asked me to browse her charts and pick one. Isn't this a sweet one I chose?
Thank you Nancy! Nancy sure is a big blessing to the stitching community.

This is where I am at on the stitching of Henry.
Mabel continues to improve. We are so thankful for that. She walks on all four legs now. Unless she is walking quickly. Then it is on three legs.

I hope you have a stitchtastic weekend my friends! I plan to!

Stitching and praying,

Vickie your gift for Brigitte is beautiful.

Congratulations on your giveaway wins! Those threads are gorgeous. I have some Nancy's threads that I bought a few years ago and they are lovely to stitch with.

So glad Mabel is continuing to improve.

Hi Vickie,
thanks for the comment on my blog:) I'm so glad to read that Vickie is doing better:) How old is she? My oldest furbaby is ten years old and he is thankfully healthy so far but I dread the day he isn't...
How they weave themselves around our hearts!
On another subject; what beautiful threads you won! Looking forward to seeing what you will stitch with them:)

Brigitte said...

I love my new bookmark, Vickie, it's such a wonderful gift - and I'm already using it with the book I started yesterday. Thanks again :)))
Nice progress on Henry, can't wait to see him finished. And so good to know that Mabel gets better and better.
