Considering I'm barely tolerant of the ankle-biting barker that I own, my mother asked me what would possess me to design a chart that had two ankle-biting barkers on it. I plead insanity. Which means that those of you out there who are completely, hopelessly in love with their little doxies will forgive me for calling the little darlings such rude names. ;) (I actually think they're rather cute little things.)
If you haven't seen it yet, here is my newest release:
This design was charted for both Gentle Art Sampler Threads and Crescent Colours in the following:
GAST Piney Woods (one of my favorite GAST colors!)
GAST Pumpkin Patch
GAST Grecian Gold
CC German Chocolate (one of my favorite CC colors!)
CC Used Brick
CC Antique Lace
The fabric is Lakeside's 36 ct. Vintage Sand Dune, and the stitch count is 157 x 65.
My lovely friend Connie Adrian did a gorgeous job on the model (hi, Connie-girl!), and I shall be stalking her soon when I finish another design. :)
Meanwhile, I've been feverishly working on my presentation piece for Shepherd's Bush in September, as well as trying to keep things organized in my mind for other upcoming releases. I've also chosen my mom's Christmas piece, and I've got to get that kitted up and going or I won't finish it nearly in time for our Holiday Sampler Exchange!
I hope you all are having a wonderful summer! And give your doxies a little treat for me. ;)
