It was RR stitchy weekend......

I was really working hard to meet the goals I have set for myself for my RR piece and am almost there. I will post it tomorrow Donna, and send it Priority so that you should have it by the weekend. Here are some snaps of the progress.


Here is a snap of the left side hearts with the last heart containing the start date. Also showing the lower borders stitched.


Here is a close up of the right side showing the ending date with the lower borders finished.

And here is a close up of one of the squirrels. I pulled it from Lakeside lodge, but I changed the colours a bit. The corner leaf and acorn I also pulled from LL. I did change the stitch count and shifted around a couple of stitches to better fit in the corner.

This morning I got a Bear claw instead of my usual coconut donut and it is really almond-licious!!! Just thought I'd throw that in as I sit here typing away.......

Overall it was a great weekend. We had dinner over at Carol and Pats on Saturday. She made some wonderful enchiladas!!!! We even took the hounds as they are always welcome. Her kitty Festus I think has other ideas as to who is welcome and not!!!! She was terrorized by the Peach. As you remember the ferocious Peach.....here she is.....

she was a little barkidy barking baby girl...... so, more loud than ferocious. Sweet Festus out weighs the Peach by a good 5 or more pounds....that could be actual weight or just fluffy fur. You would think the extra girth would help alleviate any trauma, but Festus was still nervous. I will try and get a snap of Festus next time we go over as he is a really lovely kitty.


Thanks for stopping by, and comments are always welcome......

Take care,

edgar

aww what a cutie Peach is!
Your RR is lovely. I plan to do another border/more decoration around mine when it returns in months to come. I sent it off to Lesley today

Hi Edgar, Festis would love that you mentioned him in your blog, especially since his cousins (mama and them) were mentioned as well. The stiching is just beautiful good luck on getting it out on time. Have a great day and as usual it is always a pleasure to read your blog. Smiles
