Sad here

Hi Stitching Friends.

We've been very sad at our house over the past week.  We had to put our beloved dog, Harry to sleep last week.  
I know I've shared pictures of him before.  This is one of my favorites.  After a few consultations with our vet, we decided it was time.  He developed Cushings Disease, and had gotten very sick,  to the point that he wasn't having much quality of life.  We are slowly adjusting to this, but it is going to take time.  He was a dog we rescued from an area shelter, not realizing he was as old as he was.  But, he needed us, and I'm glad we were able to love him and give him some happy times.

On the stitching front, I've been very busy trying to finish Summer at Cherry Hill.
This is where I left off
I just have the grassy area to do at the bottom.  I did have to put it aside though to start this
I need to get this done before the wedding for our son and future DIL, in mid-September.
I've made decent progress I think. I haven't been working on it too long.  I call them the headless couple at this point.... Lol. The chart calls for DMC, which I'm using. But I like the way the chart globe looks better than mine... But I'm not ripping it out!  They used Gentle Art, Slate. The DMC alternate is 932 which is what I used.  I'm happy the globe matched up.  

After I finish this, I need to revisit some wips that are languishing around here and finish them!!
It seems like I put a lot of time in Cherry Hill. There's quite a bit of stitching there.  

Well, I have to head back to work this evening for our monthly Board of Trustees meeting. I will have to take my umbrella, we're in the midst of a thunderstorm.  

Addy continues to entertain and delight us.
She is shown here with the son of our daughters friend.  She is becoming very vocal with cute little noises.  She loves 'talking' with us!  

Happy stitching friends!
