Ack! Another weekend is over! How do they pass so quickly?
Sometimes I think I have ADD. I am knee deep in Christmas boxes. I wish I could say that today I would spend the day putting things away until I am done. Nope. Not me. I tell myself I will pack 2 or 3 boxes, then check my email, maybe hook a little, read a few blogs, and then go pack a few more boxes. I guess that's why the Christmas decorations are still not all put away . . . sigh.
Here's a recent picture of Annie and that face only a mother could love.
A picture of Ellie taken just minutes ago. Look at the size of those ears.
Here's the progress I've made on my belated Christmas gift. It is an adaptation of "Pup" found on page 44 of the Magdalena Briner Eby book by Evelyn Lawrence and Kathy Wright. The book states, "Helen Kellogg thought the pup rug was charming. Even though the colors are brighter in this rug, Helen believed it to be an early 1900's Magdalena rug with the trademark striped semicircles and a favorite dog theme." . The original rug is 19" x 26". My rug is 12" x 20.5".

Since I'm a "ten minute hooker" I've also decided if I want to get any cross stitch done, I need to become a "ten minute stitcher". Here is the progress made on my Pineberry Lane pattern. I'm sure some of you will recognize the pattern. I know I've seen this on completed on several blogs.
That's about it. Back to work tomorrow.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)
