Stamp Sumo

 Hi friends!

I received these FANTASTIC 🐩 NEEDLE MINDERS from my Instagram friend named Katrina as a thank you gift for the Liberty and Justice poodle pattern that I designed and gifted to her.

Saturday was Madeleine's birthday. This is a little gift I stitched up for her. Not the greatest picture, but it will do. This is "Stamp Sumo" by Blue-Blossoms. 

The second picture you will see how the pattern is sold. 

I changed the pattern to look like one of Madeleine's favorite wrestlers. I say ONE. She has several. 😉 Yes, her and Daddy are Sumo fans. I would say Madeleine is a Sumo fanatic however! I stitched this two over two on 32ct white linen with most of the called for DMC.

I do have the July Ric Rac Row stitching done. I am working on the final finishing.

“We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to our own way; and the LORD has laid on him the iniquity of us all.” Isaiah 53:6

Take good care of yourselves my friends. Sadly, this virus is still a real threat.

Stitching and praying,

I had to laugh when I read your description of Madeleine as a sumo fanatic. That makes me smile and I'm sure she loved your little stitched sumo wrestler. Will you stitch her other favorites? The needle minders are perfect for a poodle lover like you--enjoy, Vickie! ♥
