After finishing Rowyn's NRR, I had a hankering to begin Acorns & Threads Sampler by Carriage House Samplings.
Of course, the photo doesn't render the colors accurately. The linen is 28 ct. Prairie Grain which is golden with a touch of olive green - very autumny! The silk I'm using for the medallion is a Silk 'n Colors, but the name escapes me right now. Once again the colors are just right for this time of year, the purple tones remind me of the Virginia Creeper on my fence that is turning red and purple right now. This one should stitch up quickly and then it's back to Debby's NRR!
Fritz continues to delight us, although he does require a lot of attention. My dear little grandsons are not as delighted as the rest of us, being a bit on the timid side with dogs. Their other grandma has larger dogs at their country home and so even though they are very nice dogs, they've intimidated the boys with their barking and size. I'm hoping that Fritz will win them over in time!
The boys take him outside several times a day, of course, but a couple of days ago, Fritz found a real puppy treasure - a dead squirrel, a very dead squirrel. Puppy pounced and played with it while the boys were trying to get him away. Finally, mission was accomplished, but the smell remained on the dog. Ugh! So DH gave Fritz his first bath last night and the boys were sent to dispatch the body to areas far off the puppy path! :D
School and all our errands and activities are keeping me extraordinarily busy and I'm falling dreadfully far behind on my blog reading. I miss keeping up with all of you and your gorgeous projects, but for now I must be content with a visit now and then.
