Happy belated Canada Day (July 1) to my friends across the northern border. I've been traveling for a few days and that's why you haven't seen any updates from me.
Last week, Vonna received a biscornu from me as part of the USEBB exchange. You might recall that Vonna had my name for this same exchange. This was the very first biscornu finish I had ever completed, and while it wasn't elaborate, I thought it turned out quite nice. I alternated fabric and fiber colors on either side using a Debbie Draper freebie called Spring Flowers.
Earlier this spring, I moderated an ABC exchange and one of the participants did not receive her package. I stitched this design from the Workbasket for Nancy K using Crescent Colors Tartan Plaid on a piece of 36 ct white linen from my stash.
We've also been kind of busy around here lately - with a new puppy! We adopted her from a shelter. She's a yellow lab/golden retriever mix although we think she's mostly lab. Her name is Maggie and she will be eight weeks old on July 8.
You might recall that we already had a chocolate lab/Chesapeake Bay Retriever mix named Zeta. Zeta was also adopted from a shelter five years ago and we think that she's about six year's old. She loves to play with the puppy sometimes, but then she needs to take a long nap afterwards!
Zeta, Theresa (my daughter), and Maggie
