I did get lots of this finished this week and I am now officially at the half way mark. Blue is my favorite color but after stitching this I might have to change my mind. :o) At the top you will see mother of pearl rose colored heart buttons. I am planning on using these instead of stitching the hearts in. I don't like the stitched ones and I'm not real thrilled with these rose colored ones either. I've checked all my local stores....Joann, Michaels and Hobby Lobby and haven't seen anything I like better. If anyone has a suggestion on what I might do there instead of the buttons, please post a comment and let me know what it is. I'm hoping to have all the swag finished this weekend and then I can start the lady which will give me something new to stitch instead of just blue. I haven't stitched on anything else this past week and I don't plan on it for the upcoming week. If I am diligent I think I'll be able to finish it next week.....fingers crossed.
It has been awhile since I posted any pictures of our little lady, Vallie, so here she is in all her glory. She needs a trim and that will happen next week sometime hopefully. She is actually pretty good for the girls at Petsmart where I take her to get trimmed. The only thing she really hates is getting the hairs pulled out of her ears. Apparently Maltese are known for hairs growing on the inside of their ears and these must be pulled out. Can't say I blame her for not liking that being done to her. I wouldn't either.
Vallie hopes everyone has a wonderful weekend and that you get some good stitching time and napping time also. :o)
Blessings as always,
