Calendar Poodle SAL

Wednesday, June 6, 2018


Hi friends! Today I am 49. wOw. How did that happen?

Here is the poodle display board for this month.😍🎂
I have a finish to share with you finally. The piece I have been working on for Madeleine at her request. This is a freebie you can find HERE  Sroll down. Back to February postings. This is a design from Twin Peak Primitives. Thank you ladies!
Madeleine chose the linen and learned what a floss toss is.😊She chose all DMC colors except for the barn red, that is VMSS Special Berry. I stitched this two over two on 29 count Cashel raw linen.
Isn't this cute? Madeleine has a thing for goats.She named them Bertie and Gertie. Ha! We need to get a frame for this yet.

Madeleine, Jacob, Brian, and I went for a one hour hike on trails in a park near our home the other day.🌲AS IN, I WAS OUTSIDE THAT WHOLE TIME FOLKS!!🌳 WOO HOO!☀️FREE AS A BIRD!🕊️ Well, wearing my sunscreen, so I don't get melanoma again, but otherwise free from migraines! WOO HOO!

Off to start my July wreath for the cubby shelf.

"The Lord knows the days of the upright, and their inheritance shall be forever." -Psalm 37:18

Stitching and praying,

Hi Vickie,
Happy Birthday, my friend, I wish you a magical day.
The small motif looks really nice, I like the two goats. And they have the right names too - funny.
How nice that you did not get any migraines, you realize how good it is for you to go out and have fun.
Big Hugs my friend, Martina

Happy Birthday, dear Vickie.
The little design you stitched for Madeleine looks so great. It's rare to see goats on designs so you were lucky to find these.
It's fantastic to read that you could go outside and take a hike without getting a migraine. You slowly seem to get your life back, yeah!

Late Happy Birthday to you~ :D! I think the outside hike has gotta be the best birthday present ever. I have to wear sunscreen too or I turn into a lobster.

Bertie and Gertie are great. It's a really cute stitch.
