Lots to update you on today so let's get started!
First, some stitching! I've been stitching a lot to catch up on Elizabeth Savilles. The borders meet - sort of. I fudge everything with this sampler so I am just whistling as I go. Doesn't fit, no problem, let's fudge it!
I had fun with this basket on the left hand side. I took complete liberty with it and I like how the basket design itself worked out! It's different than anything I've seen before. It started off as "should I frog a lighter colour out or not?" then I tried weaving in a darker colour to fill in the basket and the rest just grew from there!
Here is how Elizabeth is looking! Oh, she is so pretty! (If I may say so myself!)
Now I just want to get the flowers on the border done! They take quite a bit of time to do but I'm getting the hang of it.
Have you seen this cat toy? It's like a doughnut with a ball trapped inside. I showed the cats how to play with it. Daisy got bored quickly but Julius with all the boy testosterone, loves going crazy with it. The blurry photos are precisely because he was moving so fast!
Let's try a backward manoeuvr!
Let's get the paw right in there and catch that rascally ball!
How did I do Mom? I'm hungry now. Got some food for me?
Lastly, I want to update you on the work front. Thank you for all the lovely positive thoughts (I see bubbles everywhere!) and the prayers. Since last week, another job posting went up and I put my name in for that too. I have an interview on Tuesday morning! Cool, huh?!!!
So, fingers crossed, we shall see what happens! (Keep those positive thoughts zinging this way please!)
I will close with a shot of our beautiful yellow rose by our front entrance. Every time we walk by we are gifted with their wonderful fragrance!
Thank you again for your visits and supportive comments! For my fellow Canadians, Happy Canada Day tomorrow, rain or shine! For my friends across the border, Happy Fourth of July to you!
