Hello World (and some stitchy stuff)

This is Pickles! The pictures don't show just how cute and tiny he really is. Anyway, he made it through the night with minimal accidents. I didn't realize that having a new puppy can be so much like having a new baby.

This is Pickles sitting in Ethan's lap. He's a proud papa, and did I mention that laps are our favorite place to be?

This is my progress so far on Lizzie Kate's "Hocus Pocus". Not much but I am proud nonetheless! I'm stitching it just like they did over at Shepherd's Bush with lots of buttons and on a lolvely hand-dyed 10 count Tula (it's more like a lime green, but the photos don't do it justice).

These are the lovely dragonfly scissor charm and thread drops that Carol Ridyard sent to me. Aren't they lovely? Carol is such a sweetie. I love them Carol and I will think of you every time I use them.

I'm exhausted! I have been up with Pickles since before 7:00 this morning. Hopefully I will have a restful evening and get in some much needed stitching time. I am destined and determined to get this finished by next week's stitch-a-thon over on the Let's Stitch blog. Wish me lots of luck and lots of sleep!

What a cutie!!! I'd love to have a little dog but with the brutes in my life (dog Kyle and BF Kelly) I couldn't have one :-( Can't wait to see more pics of Pickles!
