Disappointed.....but.....

Well I was told today that the people who called about Oliver first will probably adopt him.  I was very disappointed until they sent me this picture of Buttercup who is a Shih Tzu.  Look at those eyes!!!  Who could resist them!!  Well I meet Buttercup (not sure if I'm keeping the name) on friday afternoon at 2:00 so please wish me luck.  Our grand daughter, Peyton, has already volunteered to be our babysitter if we need one so she will have a very doting aunt (?).  I will be sure to let you know on friday how it went and if she comes home with me (which I'm just about 98% sure of) I will have some more pics of her.
As far as stitching goes, I'm still working on the Blackbird Design Rose Garden.  I'm about 1/2 way done with it and I'm anxious to finish it.  I don't know about the rest of you, but the older I get the less time I want to devote to just one design.  I have some absolutely beautiful sampler patterns but because of the size of them, I truly doubt if they will ever be stitched.  One of them is the American Sampler in the out of print Treasure Magazine.  Remember them?  They only came out with about 5 or 6 issues but they really had some great patterns in them.  Well I have the 4 that have the different samplers in and I would love to stitch all of them for one of the walls in my living room.  I sincerely doubt if this will ever happen.  Just wondered if there are others out there like me.
As always, Barbara

OMG she is adorable. I will be thinking of you on Friday and hoping all goes well and this sweet little girl goes home with you. Oh, it will mean even less stitching time but it will be so worth it. :)

Sorry Oliver didn't get his chance with you but as long as he has found a home then that's great news. Buttercup looks adorable (I like the name too), my parents have the same breed and he's lovely, very gentle, brilliant with my children as they have grown up and now at the age of 11 he's still full of life ~ good luck xxx
