Cross Stitch Happy

Update

Thank you to everyone for your good wishes for my Tiger. She is doing very well, wanting to roll and rub her back, which she can now do as we went and had the stitches removed this afternoon. Now if her hair would just grow back faster so I don't have that constant reminder of the incident.

I do have some stitching finishes, just don't have pictures to show. We had heaps of snow this week, so I had loads of time to stitch. I got Groundhog Day done and Hope Perches by The Sampler Girl . I forgot I had ordered this and when it came in the mail yesterday I started it right away and got it done by evening. I want to finish it off into a pillow as shown on the pattern, just don't know if I have enough of the right fabric on hand. May have to go shopping :)
I'll post the pictures tomorrow.


These Totem Poles greet visitors to Stanley Park. Please take a stroll through this link, you will be amazed at the beauty of this park, it sure brought back some great childhood memories of my visits. I just may have to find some time this summer to go again.

I'm so happy to hear that Irene :o) Give Tiger a big hug from me!

That pattern is adorable and I can't wait to see the picture of yours.

It's been 22 years since I was in BC and the one thing that I came back with was the beauty :o)

Irene, I was in Vancouver twice - about 15 years apart and the last time was in June 2001. I thoroughly enjoyed my visit there and Stanley Park especially. Thank you for bringing back the memories. Glad to hear that Tiger is OK. Please give him a big hug (well, maybe a soft one!) from me and my cocker spaniel, Ginger.
