What a Strange Ride It’s Been

What a strange ride it has been this week!  
I'm trying really hard not to be political but, the images and the actions I have seen this week have broken my heart!
I'm feeling disbelief, sadness, confusion, anger and disgust.  
All I'm saying because if I get more specific than that....well you know the drill:  unfriended, ridiculed...etc.  

So, dogs pictures people.  
My little Grandpa Buster after his latest grooming.  
He will be twelve on January 15th.  
We should have cake.  His middle name is Cake.  Who doesn't love Cake!
And then there is Henry.  He was laser focused on something in the backyard...not sure what.  Oh Henroo!
I really thought I was going to finish the Red and Green Carnation Sampler today but, time just got away from me.  It won't be much longer.  
One of the squirrels today was Apple Crisp.  Baking is good for the soul.  Bakery is good for the soul maybe, not the waistline.  

 Thats it.  Thats all I have the heart to do.  Let all hope and pray for clear sight, clear mind and attitudes to move beyond all this crap.  

Have a great week.  Be Nice, Be Kind, Wear Your Mask, Wash Your Hands, Socially Distance.  I know I'm going to try.  

Keep Stitching


  1. Difficult times indeed. Stitching and furry friends are great distractions. Stay safe.

  2. Buster is too cute, & Henry is so handsome.
    Love that Sampler, I do hope they release it next year.
    I am disgusted with the news also.
    Still have hope that 2021 will be better.
    Have a great week.

  3. We watch from Canada and scratch our heads. All our extended family lives in Va and NC. Your dogs are sweet sweet. Balm for the soul. I like to cross stitch but am currently hooking.

  4. I love your sampler...that one has been on my radar for a while. I just need more time!!! Hopefully, this week will be much better than last!!

  5. Wonderful dog pictures! Yes cake solves many problems. I wish the country could be like my friend and me. We are at opposite points on the political spectrum. We get along just fine. We simply choose to not talk about politics! It really works.

  6. Monica, your carnation sampler is looking incredible. Love the pictures of Buster and Henry Ford.
