I haven't washed or pressed this piece yet but I wanted to share a picture of it cause I think it's just too cute!! :) There are 4 of them in the quilt. This is the first one that I've finished. Although you can see the hoop creases on it, I ended up not using the hoop. It's just much easier for me to do the various stitches if the fabric isn't taut. To you embroiderers out there, do you use a hoop or not?
I have two wienie dogs down on me now. Dewey's been walking really stiff-legged for the last week or so, and yesterday afternoon couldn't take but a couple of steps without sitting down. Badger's back has also flared up on him again, so now I have TWO wienies to carry outside for potty time. :/ Dewey has been crated all day. I called the vet, and she is sending me more prednisone and pain med for both of them. So, for the next few days, I'm doing the puppy-shuffle when it comes to carrying them from one place to another. And the rest of that story is trying not to roam around in the house too much because they want to follow me. I may end up having to crate Badger as well. He has been really, really wobbly in the hindquarters today. So, I'm just holding my breath (LOL well, and a couple of wienie dogs too LOL). Needless to say, I have NOT done the sewing that I wanted to do. For now, I'm just playing with the embroidery, altho I have pulled some quilt books to look thru (for the gazillionth time LOL), and I've been in the 'stash room' several times looking at fat quarters. I just got Laps from Fats and More Laps from Fats this past week, and I really like the quilts in them. Now I guess I'll have to get the third one, Laps from Fats for Family and Friends. :)
