Halloween Stitching day 23 and in the dog house

This is the sentence I woke up too "Boys what have you done???  Your mommy is going to kill you"  That is never a good sentence for anyone but especially in my house because I never know what Gibbs, Bert, Tiger Lily or Brigen will do.  Today, I cried a little.  I was so mad at what I woke up to...see for yourself:

This is four of my Halloween starts scattered all over the floor.  Bobbins, eaten patterns (working copies thank goodness), fabric and torn ziplock bags....See the culprit below.  He is so guilty and in the doghouse!!  Brigen is so lucky that I love him!!!!

I was so frustrated but happy it was working copies so  I was able to copy those again today.  Today was a quick run to Wal-mart then back home.  I was still too frustrated to stitch so I pulled out my patterns to try and figure out the starts I was going to do.   Stitch Maynia  and Soulful Stitching Facebook groups already have their SAL's for next year posted and I am joining them next year.  I am doing the Stitching Blitz on Soulful stitching which is a new project every week.   I am a little crazy.  I won't lie, I had a slight anxiety attack when I was trying to organize for next year and I don't know why    I stopped, and pulled out the book I was reading.  What you ask?  I am currently reading Snobs written by Julian Fellowes.  He wrote Downtown Abbey...I am struggling with this book.  I just don't like the characters...I am only on page 63 of 265 so I need to give it some more time.   Right now it is free for your kindle if you want to try it.

Halloween Stitching Day 23: Halloween Pumpkins  JSC Halloween 2012 stitched on 28 count monaco handdyed by me in a dark purple using Rit Dye

As you can see I didn't get much done today.  

Here is what it will look like when finished. I think the purple fabric will be pretty.

I also worked this past week on AWH - Not much because it is tree confetti..I hate these trees!!!   I am going to look at the pattern and see where all the trees are so I can get them over with if possible.

Until tomorrow!  Have a great stitchy day!

Naughty naughty dog!!
Thank goodness it didn't get hurt with any needles too!
Hard to stay cross, look at that cute little face ;)

Oh no! No, no, no... I'm so glad it was only working copies and no actual stitching got eaten. My cat has stolen thread bobbins and completely unraveled some knitting, but oh, that is so horrible to wake up to.

I love your new start on that gorgeous fabric!

I am SOOO grateful that Bam never touches anything of mine! But I'm about to adopt another pup (hopefully) and, even though he's three, I'm a bit worried about certain Disney things that are at pup-level!

Sorry about the bad dog. Thankfully he didn't ruin the fabric or floss. Love your new start Vickie. Nice progress on AWH.

Oh no, I hope you managed to sort everything out again!
Great choice for a new start, I guess I am really falling in love with pumpkins... Funny, I never really liked orange, but those pumpkins seem to do the trick :D

Oh no! I'm so happy that even though my River (cat) is curious and likes to look in Mommy's bags she doesn't dig into them and tear them apart!

Heather said...

Oh no! Luckily Mocha (my kitty) isn't too bad with stitching (yet!) but she loves my floss and will randomly pop up out of nowhere to steal it or grab the one I'm using. Great progress I hope everything's back in order now!
