Happy Sunday, everyone. Another weekend will soon come to a close. The weekends just seem to pass all too quickly! I have been battling something for a few days. I'm not sure if it's allergies (which I think I've just gotten the last few years) or a cold. I spent 11 1/2 hour sleeping last night and did not get my sorry butt out of bed until 10:30!!!

I was one lucky puppy! I was the winner in a give-away by the oh-so-talented Marly of Samplers and Santas. Marly is an amazing cross stitcher (among other things!). Her blog will keep you in stitches, and I'm not talking the counted cross stitch kind. I won this stack of boxes measuring a mere 7 1/2" tall. She takes paper mache boxes, ages them to perfection and attaches copies of samplers she has stitched. I've admired them on her blog and when she has had sets up for sale, they are immediately SOLD! If you are interested, she may be listing some more for sale tonight so stop on by. This stack is perfect for the top of my pie safe that I use for wool storage. Thank you, Marly! I will treasure them always.
I finished my fraktur tulip, a pattern by Wendy Miller of the Red Saltbox. I opted not to finish it as a 15" round chair pad. My finished size is 15 x 16 1/2".
These are the true colors. The background was hooked with three different dark blue wools (not the washed out color above).
My next hooking project had not yet been planned, so last night I started on this little punch needle piece that had been previously drawn on weaver's cloth.
I don't think I will ever tire of taking pictures of Annie's tongue! It is very rare when it is not hanging out.
Thanks for stopping by!
Pug hugs :)
