This and That

I think everyone in blogland stitched this little sampler for Blackbird Designs first contest. I thought it was cute and decided to stitch like a maniac and put my name in the hat too. I didn't win the prizes but I did win by getting a lovely pattern and finished sampler. I plan to frame this in a dark colored frame and hang it on the wall by my fireplace.
Woody went to a new home last Friday. (gosh I am behind with my blogging) His new "parents" just love him and think he is the best. I am so happy for him and I am glad I could give him some of my love for a short time. Of course, I got lots of love and kisses from him too. :o) He will never again have to worry about having a full stomach, a soft place to sleep, or a place to get warm and that makes me feel wonderful.
We are still missing our dear Bogey. His ashes were returned yesterday and I had another little cry. I wrapped the container in the little quilt I made for him shortly after he came to live with us and placed it in a nice wooden box my son and I purchased. You could almost always find him sleeping on that quilt at some point during the day so I decided it should retire with him. I find myself looking for him when I get up in the morning or when I come home from work.
I am still stitching on Bushel and will post another progress picture soon.

I think you are right about everyone stitching that cute little sampler, I would have too if I had any fabric to stitch it on, your sample is lovely.

Hooray for Woody!! It's too bad there aren't stronger penalties for bad pet owners.

This is so cute!
I have seen it around, but I didn't know there was anything like a contest going on! I'm such a newbie! :)

Wow! Woody got adopted FAST! That is really great--I remember you saying that he was following you around because he was "worried". Poor thing; we had a dog we "found" that was like that too. Way out from civilization, obviously dumped.
