onward and upward

i'm sorry for the delay! the reason for the request for prayers actually has to do with work, and the situation doesn't look like ending ... readying for another day and praying for strength and fortitude.  need the job badly, but not the added stress we are all experiencing!  thank you for all the good thoughts and prayers..

photo progress later, promise!.. onward and upward!

non-stitchy post

Hi all, thank you for your comments! You've all been very encouraging.

I haven't had much stitching done this past week except for a few stitches on the Italian flower wip (which I had to frog, sigh).  Someone dropped off the gift of a dog, a Boston terrier, for my mom (who's away for a couple of days).  I was so surprised and taken aback. She's a cutie though.  No name yet and I'm waiting for my mom to do the honors.  As you can imagine, being totally unprepared for it we have none of the paraphernalia for dog ownership! Many years ago my dad used to breed poms and German shepherds but that was many, many years ago.. God bless my dad.. so no more fences, carriers, harnesses or collars and definitely no dog food! Anyway, will post pics over the weekend. Any tips for a new BT owner?

On a side note, I've had a few rough days in the office.. so please spare me and the person concerned (see, I think it would help that person too!)  some good thoughts, prayers, white light, if you would! Or in any case, I'd appreciate all you can send over my way  :-)

In the meantime, good stitching!

Pics of my WIPs

You know, as I was transferring some pics, I realized that I forgot to take a photo of the big WIP I'm doing... but I'm too sleepy to take it now.

But before the WIPs.. a better pic of my finish!

Madame La Fee
Okay, now for the WIPS..

La D Da's
A Bushel and a Peck

Peaches by Maria Wrinkler (done with Plums)

Orchids from an Italian pattern (meant to join a quilt, too!)

And some random, stash-y goodness:

PS Garden Samplers, purchased from a lovely 123 lady

Brooke's Books, with linen (the linen is much prettier in person!)

Blogger seems to be going wild on me, sorry for the lack of centering/symmetry!

Oh dear!  I can't get Blogger to behave.
Good stitching to all!
