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
