Hi friends! How are you? I am dragging. It has been 6 nights of interrupted sleep for me. And Murphy. He has been getting up 4 times a night, every night, for 6 nights in a row now. Brian works third shift and Murphy is definitely MY dog, so it is me and Murph. He has this weird mucousy poop happening. We took a sample in to the vet on Saturday morning to be tested. They send it out, so we don't get results until today. I am not so sure he has internal parasites anyways, but we must rule that out. The night this started, Madeleine gave Murphy a tiny piece of a Slim Jim that day. I think this old boy cannot handle such a thing and his digestive tract got whacked out. I am just guessing. We are waiting to talk to the vet today. I have yet to tell the vet of the Slim Jim. Murphy is acting fine during the day. Eating and drinking fine. He still naps a LOT during the day OF COURSE! Wish I did!!!😪
I took another picture of the Forever Be My Always pattern picture from the Cross Stitch and Needlework magazine for you. It has been a long time since I have shown you this. Some of you thought I was almost done. I have a ways to go yet. This will get pulled out and worked on again late in April.
The next HUGE change to this sampler is the house. I actually started stitching it with the dark red for the bricks. I had to stop. It bothered me way too much. You see, my Grandma and Grandpa's house is still there in West Allis. It unfortunately left the family in the 1980's, but it has ALWAYS and is STILL a white sided house. Now I know all of these homes in each sampler of this AotH series are not necessarily representative of our families' homes. But this big,dramatic brick house was just too different. And I want this block to be for Grandma and Grandpa Kehoe with the Irish shamrocks. Soooo.. I pulled out the dark red stitches. I stitched B5200 for a bit. I do not believe this is going to work. It is just too light on cream Dublin linen. So I will be pulling out these stitches now and figuring out the correct color floss to use.
Here is where Emerson is now on his woodpecker embroidery.
Here is the chart I am giving away.
That's all for me today my friends. I will have a picture of A Wish For You on Friday. I hope you have a great week!
Stiching and praying,
