“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

🍀Murphy The VERY Lucky Dog🍀

Hi friends! Here is the latest poodle display board.
Here is the cubby shelf set up for March.
I still have the February wreath in there. I am stitching the March wreath right now. I ran out of white 25 count linen!! I thought I had more. I ordered some and was stitching BBD Pumpkin Farm while I waited for the linen to arrive.

Did you notice the March Calendar Poodle? He is in the cubby shelf. It is Murphy this time. Here is a closer look.
Here is the pattern for you.
Backstitch the stem with two strands of 905
If you stitch this pattern or any one of my poodle patterns, please send me a picture. I would love to post it here on my blog and also on my Calendar Poodle SAL page. I will also link to your blog.

Murphy is one VERY LUCKY dog.🍀 He is actually, isn't he? We found him at our local animal shelter. His elderly owner went to a nursing home. Murphy was 12 when we adopted him. He is 14 1/2 years old now. He is blind in one eye now. (I thought about stitching his eyes blue, but no, I made them dark brown.) He is most definitely MY dog. He is very attached to me. I have a saying about Murph. If he is not happy, he is snappy.😟He is not a mean dog, he is just, let's say, irritable. So, yes, he is lucky to have us, who love poodles and put up with this grumpy old guy. It doesn't hurt that he sleeps a LOT!!! ha!

Til next time my friends!

Stitching and praying,
Vickie

Oh yes, Murphy definitely is a lucky dog finding a loving family like yours at his age. So March is the perfect month for him :)))

Hi Vickie,
Oh you see how in love you are in Poodle, the board looks great, and your March Poodle is adorable too.
I think it's great that you have taken a dog at the age of 12, so he can have a really nice "pension life"
Big Hugs, Martina

Your March display looks great, especially with your own design in it! All your poodles look adorable, I'm impressed.
Murphy is very blessed to have you! That's the route we will go when and IF we ever decide to get a dog. Although I'm quite happy with my kitties!

I hope Murphy doesn't get a swelled head now that he is the star of the March poodle designs, Vickie :) That is so sweet and I can hardly believe we are a quarter of the way through the year... Big day for you next week--will be keeping you in my thoughts and prayers!
