Another Week Gone By
It has been a week since the puppies were born. Mom is doing just fine and seems to be doing an excellent job. The puppies are gaining about 1 oz per day, both are close to 14 Ozs now. We have been weighing them and being they are little squirmers we think the weight is close to accurate. The little white one is getting the darker color on her nose, eye lids and mouth area, seems she will be looing like a Maltese. As for the Black one, We just don't know how she will look, but she sure is a cutie. Both puppies have the BIGGGGG Bellies, They slither and roll around the whelping box, we don't know how their little legs will ever carry their weight. Sissy is still waiting to become a mother, she is so big and she just can't get comfortable. Any day we should have more puppies, FUN FUN FUN
Cross Stitch Finish
This past week, I finished the Enchanted Alphabet by Lavender & Lace, She was stitched on 18 ct Aida Cloth that I dyed with a green Rit Dye. The results are beautiful. This is my first Lavender & Lace design. I am just about finished with the Welcome Winter Piece, just have the back stitching to do on that one. It is a cute little snowman, I know, snow is something we don't get here in Florida, but that is Ok my memory of snow is still there from my time up north.
Melanie and the kids were here Sunday, She finally got her birthday gift, only a month or so late. Melanie had brought up some cross stitched squares that will be made into tote bags, eyeglass cases and lap robes for World of Charity Stitchers, the Yahoo group we both belong to. Her items were posted on the WOCS web site if you want to take a look at them.
