Fear not, for I am with you;
Be not dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you,
Yes, I will help you,
I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.

Proper Poodle Party Attire

Hi friends! You know I adore my poodles. After today's post, you will know without a doubt that I am crazy for them. Or perhaps just plain crazy?! ;)

With the upcoming graduation party for Emerson and Madeleine this Sunday, I got the fun idea to have the three poodles wear "a little something" for the get together. I swear, I get these ideas and get motivated when the pressure is on me to do many, many chores and tasks!!

So, since Madeleine's school colors are white and gold(golden yellow), we are decorating in yellow. I went with yellow. Now Miss Mabel is easy. I have a lovely necklace I made year several years ago. It is not yellow, but it is made from a Vera Wang black velvet and rhinestone bracelet.
The part you are not seeing,  is the part that wraps around the top of her neck. I strung pearls there. :)

I have made Mr. Henry a lovely yellow floral bow tie.
I know! Do you want to squeeze him, or what?!? :)

Mr. Murphy could not also have a bow tie. How redundant! He gets a neck tie in a pastel yellow, yet manly plaid.
Are you ready for this? Ta da!! Look at these three! tee hee!
I think they are thrilled, right? Well, I am!! Especially since the yard work is done!!! And I am almost, yes, almost ready for this party.
My neurologist had me begin taking 400mg of Riboflavin daily. It is proven to reduce or remove headaches when they are not severe. That is why he did not mention this two months ago when they were horrid. It is working already, or else it is psychological! I will take the reduced headaches either way! The weather has been cooler also. So I have not been suffering. I have been a 1 or 2 for headache pain for 3 or 4 days now! Yippee!

Since I have been cleaning and gardening and shopping and sewing, not much stitching has been happening. I will be back next time with a finish to share with you though.

Thank you for all of your wonderful comments and birthday wishes for me. I appreciate you! Have a great weekend!

Stitching and praying,
Vickie

What a handsome crew! Love the ties. We had to always put our dogs in a quiet room when company came because people kept feeding them or leaving chicken bones within reach. Not a problem with the cats - they scatter! So glad you are finally getting relief.
