I have been very busy sewing chenille on the pin keeps to finally finish them. It started yesterday, sewing the fabric that I bought on Thursday at the quilt store. At last a picture that looks like the true color. I did go with the darker brown fabric. The green nearly matches the green in the stitching: DMC 935. It really does go well together. Last night I dyed the chenille with Tan Rit Dye according to BBD directions in A Stitcher's Journey. That ended up pretty much matching the lighter brown in the fabric.
I also finished off this Halloween Ornament. I used the same fabric. I was on a roll. I didn't look to bad with this one either. The chenille finished of the edges nicely.
Then there is the crazy Shih Tzu. Dogs seem to love pancakes. Buster greatly enjoys them. Bob gave him a chunk of a pancake. It looked like he has different lips. At one point, it made him look like he was smiling. He carried it around for about 4 hours before he finally ate. it. He'll take it outside with him, leave it there until he is ready to come in. He all of the sudden will remember it, run back out the door and get it. He'll do the same thing with his dog biscuits. It really is very comical. I have never seen anything like it. We have had two big dogs and they nearly took your fingers off while you were giving them the biscuit.
I don't know how much I will be posting this week with all the activity but, I'm gonna try.
Thanks for stopping and all the great comments. Hope everyone is having a great weekend.
Keep on Stitching
