The Hostess

As a Hostess, she has much to learn. Less noisy to start with. Being less apprehensive. The she is Ms Zoe who received visitors yesterday. Yes, that is correct...Zoe played hostess to Sonya and Jacob. I work with Sonya at Jo Ann's and Jacob is her son. Zoe has visited Sonya at work one day but Jacob wanted to meet her. They came with sliced turkey from the deli which was a good move on their part. Food is a good way to get to Zoe. She initially barks like crazy and then calms down. It did help that Jacob sat on the floor and fed her turkey. Zoe does not get to see too many people and she is a very shy pooch, always has been. Jacob has been invited back to visit Zoe and join Mr H for a movie.  Mr H has a movie projector system which makes home movies delightful.I think they decide on Alien. Not my kind of movie!
It has been soooo hot...and with it being Monsoon season, a little humidity. This means totally indoors. I will be at work today.....no stitching. I did get some X's in yesterday but have not taken new pictures. I will do that tomorrow. Right now I need another cup of coffee and granola. So, thanks for stopping by and chatting. Have a great day.

It's Wednesday already?

I can't believe that I have not posted since Sunday. What have I been doing? I know I did stitch a little and went to work on Tuesday. Monday... oh right. I went to my monthly stitch group. Always nice to catch up with the ladies. For the summer we are a very small group as the snowbirds have left until September. Mr H had a doctor appointment in the afternoon.... another injection for his hip. This morning was Zoe off to the vet. The pills for her arthritis seem to be helping, but I will not be giving her any until Monday to see if they really are helping. We are also dealing with the brain mass issue so we are not sure what is what. I do see a slow failing in her. Of course Mr H does not admit to me that he sees this. He tells me "she is not concentrating" after she wakes into the doorway or right past one of us. When she stumbles he might say " she is still sleepy". He loves her so. She is stressing for no apparent reason during the wee hours, say 1 am to 4 or 5 am. I am not a good sleeper as it is, so this really is taking my sleep time. Yet, with this being said, I do not feel she is in any real pain/discomfort. Dr Lori understands and will keep a close eye as wee will also. 
Well folks, that is that. I would like to stitch today...and read a little. I started a book about Helen Beatrix Potter and it is so interesting. Thank you for stopping by and listening to me. Sometimes it really helps to talk about these things. I do hope you have a wonderful day. I am ready for a nap myself!

100 more stitches and an owl

I did manage to stitch...a little on Iris

Just a hint of an Iris petal coming into view. This is about 1500 stitches and 29 colors. one day....


Next, I am working on my Needles project....
This is a little on the dark side, but it is the only way the linen color shows more true to shade. It really is a nice color but I do not have info as it came from my stash box and no label. I sometimes buy small pieces from The Attic and there is only the count on the tag. It is a nice way to have colors on hand without buying large pieces.

I will be choosing the travel destination for Madame Muriel by the week's end...so there is still time to let me know. I am hoping to get more stitching in this day. How about you? What are your plans? So glad you stopped by today.... enjoy the rest of your day.
