Calendar Poodle SAL

Friday, April 21, 2017


Hi friends! I finished the little Easter freebie I was working on. It did NOT take one hour to stitch up as the designer suggested, but that is okay. It is adorable, don't you agree?
You can find this freebie HERE. I stitched this one over one on 28ct white Meran linen using DMC of my own choosing.

I am now back to stitching up my mom's birthday gift. It is a freebie with a black cat. I need to think up a way to finish this piece for her.

I have pink pansies!!😊 I only have some of them planted as of yet. I can only get into the garden in short spurts or my headache soars. Even while wearing polarized sunglasses in the shade.

Speaking of pink.... Have you seen this awesome HUGE set of PINK freebies by Maria Diaz? It is only available for a few more days this month. Go now!!! CLICK HERE
What is in the center of it all?!? Oh yeah!! The best!! Woo hoo!! A PINK POODLE!!🐩🐩🐩

Our sweet, little Henry had a dental cleaning this week. He had 5 teeth pulled. The poor boy lost all four of his front and center teeth. 😞 He is on antibiotics and pain medicine. It is common for toy breeds to lose their teeth unfortunately.

Thank you for stopping in today friends. I will have another chart to giveaway next week. I hope you have a beautiful weekend!

Stitching and praying,

Your little chicken is so sweet - I saw this and thought that's way more than 1 hours' stitching so I was pleased to see it wasn't just me!

gracie said...

Oh dear, poor Henry. I send him cuddles and belly rubs. Thank you for the link to sweet pink freebies. Be sure to rest your headache. I find myself with a light one today.

Poor little Henry! No more sweets or bones for him.
The chick is so cute but an hour? More like an evening.
Thanks for the pink freebies too.

Beth said...

I hope Henry is feeling better. Darling little yellow chick.

Barb said...

So sorry about your little one. That must be very uncomfortable. I do love the small design. With all those colors, I would never be able to stitch it in one hour!

Kerryp77 said...

poor little boy, hope he's feeling ok today. Super cute little finish. I've a book that is 2hr cross stitching - some charts have over 1500 stitches! That's not possible in 2 hrs!

Jenny said...

Hi Vickie,

I love your little chick finish! It is absolutely adorable! Everything about it is just so precious! As for finishing it in an hour...umm no definitely not that is is worth whatever it it!

Pink pansies are perfect and definitely something that should be in your garden! The thought alone just makes me smile!

Please give Henry a pat for me...he has been through a lot!

Sending lots of hugs and love your way my friend! I hope you have a great weekend! Enjoy your stitching!

Carol said...

Oh, poor little Henry--I hope he feels better very soon, Vickie. That whole experience sounds quite traumatic!

Pink pansies? I've never seen them--hope you'll share a photo of yours when they're all planted. Thank you for the link to the pink patterns. One of my young co-workers is expecting a baby girl and one of those might make a perfect ornament or card for her :)

Love your tiny chick finish--must print that one out to do next year!

Hope this last week in April is a good one for you, Vickie!

Lili said...

How sweet your little chicken!!
Please show us the pink pansies!! ;)

I hope Henry is feeling better...

Happy weekend!

RJ said...

Vickie your little chick is so adorable. Is that a printers box he is sitting in. Hope Henry feels better quickly. I would love to see your pink pansies too. I've never seen them in pink...they must be so pretty. I hope your treatments help those terrible headaches. I suffer from sinus headaches and I know how bad they can get. RJ

butterfly said...

Wow a pink poodle what fun.
Poor little Henry get well soon , big hugs.

Willy said...

Hej Vicky, a lovely little chicken.
I hope Henry feels better now.
Have a nice week!

Margaret said...

Love your little chicken finish -- so adorable! Poor Henry!!! :( I didn't know that about toy breeds losing their teeth. So sad! I hate hearing that you are still affected by your headaches. I hope your next treatment does its magic and takes them away for you.

Julie said...

It would be interesting to see the version that was stitched in 1 hour... yours is beautiful.

Astrids dragon said...

What a sweet stitch! Perfect next to the chicks.
Thank you for sharing the links, the poodle is adorable!
Awe, poor Henry. I'm sure you're spoiling him like he deserves!

Carolien said...

O dear, I missed this one! I had to work a little more last week, so I am catching up now.
Lovely finish and oh poor Henry! I hope he's feeling better by now.

Hugs, Carolien
