Meet Maggie

Here is the newest love of my life, Maggie.  She is only 8 months old but she stays right by my side on the sofa while I am stitching away. 

I take Maggie to work with me everyday.  I work with my oldest daughter, Mary, and she brings her pug, Sadie, to work.  It is so much fun to see the two of them playing - when they chase each other around the office, we call it the Pug 500.  

I am going to keep Sadie for two weeks while Mary is going sailing around the Virgin Islands.  I think I will actually be the one having the most fun!

I finished the Mary Hannah Gipson Sampler recently that was in the Winter 2010 issue of Sampler & Antique Needlework Quarterly.  I stitched it on an unknown scrap of 40 ct. linen with Needlepoint Silks.  I was happy how it turned out - very delicate.
It is now at the framer's and when I get it back it will be joining the rest of my reproductions if I can find room on the wall. 

I have been quite excited to start this blog and really appreciate everyone that has commented on my last post.  I will get this figured out eventually - I feel like I did when I first learned how to ride a bicycle!  

Thank you for taking the time out of your busy day to stop by and hope you have the opportunity to stitch a ton today (as my daughter says!).
