Patchwork Sampler and my puppies...



I haven't been feeling all that great for the past couple of days so I decided to take a sick day today so I could rest. I slept in until Gibbs started whining in his kennel. He had already gone to work with Mark and been brought back up for his morning nap. I got him up and took him to potty. Then, I decided to be somewhat productive and finish up my project linus blankets. It didn't take much..just had to do the finishing part....stitching the small opening together. They are currently in the dryer so I will post a picture later this week. I did pull out my patchwork sampler to work on today. I stitched the majority of the butter color and all the backstitching on it. It took almost all evening. The color is called "Butter" and it is from Ozark Samplers.



Gibbs is finally starting to fit in with the boys. He has also found a new spot to sleep. He loves the bottom shelf of the coffee table. I had some really cute little baskets there but since he started sleeping there, I had to move everything.
I got a phone call from my sister telling me that she had to take college classes this summer so she wouldn't be able to go to Disney with us. We are still taking the kids. However, she does plan on coming up for Friday-Sunday. We are staying at the Wilderness Lodge so she is going to book a room only reservation for her weekend trip. This should be a very fun weekend!!

Gibbs is such a cutie, but I wonder what he will do when he out grows the coffee table! The sampler is coming along nicely too. I love the picture of all the boys and I see Gibbs gives you the complete set in labby colors! Hope you feel better.

Hope a day of stitching made you feel better - usually does it for me! Gibbs is so cute in his nesting spot - will he fit when he's larger?
